2016 Aragon Research Hot Vendor and Innovation Awards.

Our 2016 Innovation Awards recognized those providers who have excelled in their markets.

Aragon research, a technology-focused research and advisory firm committed to providing thought leading strategic research and trusted advisory services, held its second annual awards ceremony for its 2016 Hot Vendors and Innovators on Thursday, December 1st, 2016. The awards ceremony took place at the Pullman Hotel in Redwood City, California and recognized 74 Hot Vendors and 16 Innovators across multiple categories.

Winners of the Hot Vendors awards were selected because they offer a new technology that expands capabilities, a new strategy that opens up markets, or just a new way of doing business that makes them worth evaluating. Innovation award winners were lauded for taking risks to guide their markets in a new direction, and are seen as being ahead of their peers.

“Identifying new emerging technology providers who are making a difference isn’t easy, but our 2016 Hot Vendors are poised to impact the markets they participate in and give incumbent providers a run for their money,” said Jim Lundy, CEO and Founder of Aragon Research. Lundy continued, “Our 2016 Innovation Awards recognized those providers who have excelled in their markets by offering solutions that are intuitive and easy to use, and many are leveraging new technology in unique ways that others have been slow to adopt.”
