Technologies and Approaches that Caught Our Attention in 2020

Research is core to our work, and in 2020 the Deep Analysis team took more than 200 briefings; we talked with companies ranging from multi-billion-dollar megavendors to tiny start-ups, and we talked to enterprises to understand their needs and experiences. Every so often, in our vendor briefings, our client work, and our desk research, we had a “shut the front door!” moment where we saw something innovative and exciting.

And so, as we approach the end of this “memorable” year, we thought we would look back and share some of those moments with you.

This report features an eclectic bunch of companies that are not likely to be seen together in the same context again. Each does something different, something innovative that moves the needle, something that has the potential to improve, educate, and stimulate the information and process automation management industry as a whole. At the core of their inclusion is their ability to reframe, rethink, and reinvent.

Without further ado, let’s reveal who made it onto this year’s Deep Analysis Innovation Index!
