The IHL Insight Market View Map then positions vendors against each other in a 3-dimensional quadrant view. The upper right quadrant shows someone who is a leader in market strength and also in growth, innovation, and unified commerce coverage. What is unique about the IHL approach is we also add a further dimension of market share scale so you can not only see who is in what quadrant, but how strong they are as well.
