Stamford, Connecticut – Qmarkets was recently named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Retail Innovation Management Platforms 2022 Vendor Assessment (doc #US47455321, April 2022).
According to an IDC press release (“New IDC MarketScape Evaluates Worldwide Retail Innovation Management Platforms Specialty Software Providers“) the MarketScape report evaluates the capabilities and strategies of 10 global innovation management software providers.
The range of capabilities evaluated in this report includes co-innovation integration, employee engagement, hackathons and innovation scouting, innovation decision making, innovation project management, innovation analytics, and knowledge management.
In a 2020 Global Innovation Retail Survey, IDC found that 90% of companies in the sector are running innovation efforts with an “opportunist, single program, or tech focused approach”. This opportunistic approach is seen as inefficient and ineffective.
Innovation Management Platforms can offer companies a more structured and measurable way to deliver successful business outcomes as a result of enterprise innovation activities.
According to the IDC press release, “IDC believes innovation management platforms (IMPs) are essential for innovation leaders to gain visibility and control on the discovery and selection subcycles of innovation.”
“We’re very proud to once again be recognized as a Leader in our domain.” said Noam Danon, CEO & Co-Founder at Qmarkets. “This truly reinforces our position as a Leader in this market, as previously established by analysts including Forrester, Gartner, and Info-Tech.”
“In the highly technical and furtive domain of innovation management, it’s easy for business leaders to become overwhelmed or misled by the conflicting messages and claims coming from different sources.” Added Ofir Platner, VP of Marketing at Qmarkets. “This is why it’s so critical for leading analysts such as IDC to provide an authoritative picture of the market landscape, along with clear and objective analysis of the vendors within it.”
