I’ve recently found a few good product comparison sites and have written a few posts/reviews for them. This type of crowdsourcing will become the future of the initial phases of procurement, but it will not replace the expertise of organizations like Gartner and Forrester. Not only are these sites a brilliant idea, but it keeps the vendors honest. Think of your personal life. Do you use Yelp? Angies List? TripAdvisor? I do – and I can only imagine that technology crowdsourcing sites will continue to grow. What do you think?
Here are a few that I’ve recently discovered. I hope that you find them as helpful as I did!
