Accelerated Identity Market Research

Keep your agency one step ahead with faster, easier, more confident vendor selection.

How many times has a vendor tried to sell your organization their service, claiming it’s perfect for your mission – only to find out later that they don’t have the key technology in production, haven’t tested the service, or can’t scale to your needs? It’s a safe bet that if you’re in the market for a technology solution, you’ve experienced this frustrating situation before. Sifting through marketing language, scheduling endless vendor meetings, checking and re-checking regulations, researching new technologies…sound familiar?
With the steady rise of cloud computing, organizations have begun outsourcing ever more technology and services (think SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS). Systems are now commonly comprised of multiple components, making it virtually impossible to find a one-size-fits-all solution that satisfies every unique mission requirement. Unfortunately, searching for compatible options in today’s rapidly-exploding marketplace requires a heavy commitment of time and labor. And in the face of growing competition, vendors are increasingly persistent in their efforts to meet with decision-makers, regardless of their viability – potentially wasting even more valuable time and adding confusion to the mix.

Fortunately, Easy Dynamics has developed an effective solution for these all-too-common problems: Accelerated Identity Market Research.

Vendor Selection Made Simple

Because our team has the relevant skills and industry experience, we’re able to effectively sort through the marketing noise and narrow your options to a select few viable candidates – ones that actually possess the capabilities you need. Our five-step market research process begins with your agency’s requirements, followed by an accelerated identification of vendors capable of meeting those requirements. Our subsequent evaluation and assessment reduces that long list to a targeted short list, tailored to your agency’s mission requirements and operational needs. We then analyze alternatives to provide a manageable selection of viable options, dramatically increasing vendor selection confidence. Once selection is complete, our team periodically checks in with vendors to make sure you have an up-to-date view on the market and its capabilities.
