Audent, independent research finds shocking price differences with 365 backup vendors. Some apples are more expensive than others.

Audent is an independent systems integrator. Our philosophy is that technology is secondary to customer requirement. Very often, when asked by clients to help with finding the right technology for their requirement, we review the available options in the market. Often starting with Forrester and Gartner positioning to pick our shortlist of vendors. We then find out more about functionality verses price to help our customers make an informed decision. We are also a reseller of the major vendors giving our clients the freedom to buy from us if they would like to.

The global investment market has been a fan of these independent Audent reviews for over 7 years because they get insight into the real world using live intelligence to help decide where to put their hard earned investment money. Very often we have to work out if we are comparing apples for apples and in some cases we are and why are the prices so different?

In a recent exercise where we compared the market leading vendors in 365 and general enterprise backup we found some shocking results where one vendor was in fact nearly 10 times the cost of the market leader who met the same functionality brief given to us by the customer. If you want to find out more we can release the results to you with no obligation and also free of charge. Let us know and respond to this blog.
