The report stated that Tagetik has achieved significant success with large clients throughout Europe and it is gaining traction in the US as well. Criteria for vendor inclusion in the study were:

Once vendors have met the preliminary criteria for inclusion, the Forrester Wave Methodology examines past research, user need assessments, and vendor and expert interviews to develop the initial evaluation criteria. To evaluate vendors against these criteria, the firm gathers details of product qualifications through a combination of lab evaluations, questionnaires, demos, and/or discussions with client references. Vendors then review the evaluations to be sure they provide the most accurate view of their offerings and strategies.
