IDC Health Insights Releases IDC MarketScape on Social Media Analytics Vendors for Pharmaceutical Companies
Sep 4 12
IDC Health Insights released a new IDC MarketScape report that helps end users evaluate the social media analytics software and service vendors currently addressing the pharmaceutical industry. The comprehensive study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Pharmaceutical Social Media Analytics 2012 Vendor Assessment (Doc #HI236520), shows the increasing interest in these software applications and profiles the following nine vendors: Brandwatch, Cognizant, Genpact Social and Digital Transformation Services, Indegene, ListenLogic, Meltwater, Radian6, Semantelli, and Visible Technologies. The IDC Health Insights research found that while spending on outbound social media marketing is lagging, investment in social media analytics software and services is growing rapidly and expected to increase significantly for the next several years. Pharmaceutical companies are seeking new ways to measure brand perception, keep tabs on end-consumer sentiment around products and therapeutic categories, and gain insight into competing brand strategy, pricing, promotions, and other relevant competitive information. As such, companies are looking for vendors with industry-specific expertise, strong customer references, and proven experience delivering measured value to pharmaceutical organizations. IDC MarketScape criteria selection, weightings, and vendor scores represent well-researched IDC judgment about the market and specific vendors. IDC analysts tailor the range of standard characteristics by which vendors are measured through structured discussions, surveys, and interviews with market leaders, participants and end users. Market weightings are based on user interviews, buyer surveys and the input of a review board of IDC experts in each market. IDC analysts base individual vendor scores, and ultimately vendor positions within the IDC MarketScape, on detailed surveys and interviews with the vendors, publicly available information and end-user experiences in an effort to provide an accurate and consistent assessment of each vendor's characteristics, behavior and capability.
