What This Article Covers

  • Our Background
  • Opening Up Our Research & Coverage
  • What You Can Purchase from Brightwork
  • The Type of Coverage we Offer
  • Getting Out Compelling Stories in IT


Many software vendors have an interesting story to tell. At Brightwork we consider ourselves both real researchers and real technologist. We have a limited bandwidth which we can use to cover a limited number of topics. For many years we performed our research without any vendor or other funding. Essentially allowing consulting to pay for all the research that we did. But we have received increasing requests to analyze various products.

Opening Up Our Research & Coverage

Therefore, we have now opened our research and media coverage to funding. This funding can come from software vendors it can come from enterprise software buyers, it can come from attorneys. There is no way to buy an opinion or research result from Brightwork. Buying inaccurate coverage is something that we have publicly harshly criticized Gartner Forrester, IDG and others for doing.

What You Can Purchase from Brightwork

However what can be purchased from Brightwork is coverage. We have the ability and the credibility to get out information into the enterprise software marketplace. We are the source to publish information that no one else will publish.

  • It is our view that both the IT analyst and overall IT media landscape is far too subordinate to the interests of large software vendors.
  • We believe that some of the most exciting and important technology stories reside within the non-mega software vendors and stories within software buyers. And these are many of the stories that we focus on getting out.
  • So if Brightwork were to evaluate this and write it up and share it, etc… then there would be a charge that will be the $1000s. We would have to┬ádefined scope, but that is the rough idea. Now, most of our research is not paid, but if we do something specific in response to a request then we charge.

  • Interested in Accessing the World's Largest Independent Source of Intelligence on SAP?

    We operate as a true research entity and we only sell research to customers in a way that does not interfere with research and we produce no media for any vendor or other entity.

    The Benefits of Our Approach to You

    This gives us the following benefits to our clients:

    1. No Interference from SAP: We are disconnected from SAP, and unlike either Gartner, SAP Consulting Partners or SAP itself can tell our clients the truth. Unlike almost IT analysts that rely on SAP for lead generation, we don't care what SAP thinks about our results.
    2. No Implementation "Seeking" Bias: We do not seek implementation business, and therefore lack the pro-application bias of consulting companies when performing and providing analysis.
    3. A Multidimensional Analysis: It begins with two decades of SAP implementation experience, 10 years of writing and analyzing SAP, application testing, benchmarking, document analysis, information gathered from our large network of SAP users and overall "knowing" how SAP works from development up through marketing.
    4. Our Track Record on SAP: We have a 10 year track record of outperforming any other entity in our coverage of SAP and in predicting what will happen with SAP's products. In our study on SAP's accuracy, we measured both our accuracy along with SAP's accuracy, with our accuracy verifiable through links to our articles where we made our predictions.
