    Did you know:

    In 2020, Gartner announced all reviews posted on Gartner Peer Insights (GPI) will be the customer data source used for research publications (including Magic Quadrants and Critical Capabilities Reports) – in other words, they stopped interviewing and surveying customers. It's no surprise, given the breadth and depth of research Gartner produces, online reviews offer a fast and easy process to understand customer sentiment. 

    This is why we should talk:

    Your online reviews matter to industry researchers and your peers, and it matters to IBM.  Your review of OpenPages with Watson would be greatly appreciated.

    Gartner is currently watching and collecting customer reviews on GPI as they evaluate vendors for the 2022 Voice of Customer publication and subsequent winners of the Customers' Choice Award in the IT Vendor Risk Management Market.  Review evaluations close at the end of November 2021 (November 23). 

    Question: Are you using OpenPages with Watson for any or all the following use cases in IT Vendor Risk Management?

    • Initial and ongoing assessments of IT service providers and other IT vendors in the areas of infosec, adherence to regulatory standards and compliance
    • Collection of IT VRM data and the ongoing monitoring of, and remediation planning for, vendor risks
    • Vendor profile creation, data collection and vendor profile management
    • Contract data collection - most clients want to track risk at a vendor level and a contract level
    • Collection and maintenance of security data and audit reports

    If these are any of your use cases, your review in the IT Vendor Risk Management Market will go a long way in supporting industry research, and it will help your peers, who are seeking information in this market.  Even better, if your review publishes, you are eligible to receive a $25-USD-valued VISA gift card (applicable worldwide). And if you work with a team also using OpenPages with Watson, they too can write a review and receive a gift card for a published review. 

    It's easy, it takes about 20 minutes, and it's worth it!

    Ready to write a review? Reach out to me directly and I will provide all the information you need, including the custom-URL you will need to be eligible for the VISA gift card.

    I look forward to hearing from you!
