This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of strategic consultant and systems integrator vendors participating in the North America 2017 DERMS market. This IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assess vendors relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market during the short and long term.
According to John Villali, research director, IDC Energy Insights, "Participants in this study are at an advantage as they are positioning and establishing themselves in the DERMS space. This segment of the utility market is at its early stages and is growing. Many vendors in this space have opportunity to emerge as leaders as the market matures."
