STKI Tiers......

As always (I have been doing this for over 25 years) vendors are angry with STKI about how we saw them in the tier research.
I know that the work is not perfect but it is the best that I can do.
I talked (personally) to over 130 CIO)s about what they did in 2010 and which companies did the work and how was it done: staff augmentation, time and materials or fix price. What was the scope of the projects, etc. The other 4 analysts did interviews and surveys to about 300 separate companies.
All the analysts sat with the vendors in a session called vendor briefing... during that session vendors went over what they did in 2010. Plus all vendors sent a survey putting numbers behind their work.
Finally, all analysts and myself sit together and do the rankings (using also the 90 round table materials).
It takes us a whole 45 days of full time work to finish our rankings.
STKI is sorry if any mistakes were done, we tried our best to be fair to big and small vendors .
