    It’s great to have more competition to Gartner’s Magic Quadrants. Good luck with this new initiative. My cofounder and I started IT Central Station (www.itcentralstation.com) to provide another angle – crowdsourced opinions from real users through online product reviews of enterprise software, hardware and services. I think it’s complimentary to what you’re doing and there’s plenty of room in the market for new ways to help IT buyers make better buying decisions. Good luck!
