Constellation evaluated more than 20 solutions categorized in this market and selected the top eight vendors that provide the key functionality and requirements for early adopters pursuing digital transformation initiatives. According to Constellation Research, the explosive growth of enterprise collaboration software has created a new set of demands on employees’ time and attention. As people openly share information with their colleagues across a variety of tools, including email, social networks, and file-sharing services, staying organized and knowing what needs attention is a real challenge. “At a time when organizational speed, innovation, and frictionless execution are critical to gaining a competitive edge, collaborative work – especially at scale – is increasingly bogged down by legacy tools and, more importantly, by legacy thinking,” said Mark Mader, CEO of Smartsheet. “We’re honored that Smartsheet’s enterprise-scale work management platform has been recognized for it’s ability to meet the demands of today’s collaborative work and to help organizations break free of inefficient tools and processes that slow down innovation.” “The right timing, teams and technology are the three Ts for crafting digital business models to achieve digital transformation success,” said R “Ray” Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. “Each Constellation ShortList, researched and curated by our analysts, guides early adopters in identifying the right technologies to build successful and competitive programs.” Constellation advises leaders and teams on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation. Products and services named to the Constellation ShortList meet the threshold criteria for this category as determined by Constellation Research through client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share and internal research. The Constellation ShortList is frequently updated as market conditions change.
