A few weeks back, I wrote about the geniuses at Expertune and their “consumer Report” style of software analysis. Click here to read that
In that posting, I shared how they compared the PAS ControlWizard product to the tool that they sell.
Apparently, they like making charts like this and crank them out on whatever basis they feel the customer will believe.
Are they really so naïve?
You be the judge… and have a chuckle at Miss Piggy's observation down below!!
An unnamed reader sent me the other comparison charts that the marketing geniuses over at ExperSchlock have generated.
Rather than writing about it, I’ll reproduce the miniature versions of these “reports”. Now you can see for yourself.
Here’s one on a company I never even heard of…
But look! It’s shorter than this next report on another small company…
Hmmm… how can a benchmark comparison take a different approach with a different set of criteria for different vendors???
Something fishy here… especially since the “other guys” are all scoring badly compared to the benchmark product.
And then, here are the reports on AspenTech and Matrikon – I won’t say which is which, but notice that these are bigger yet and also vary in the number of comparison metrics used. What happened to good engineering with unbiased reporting?
Did you notice how everyone else’s product scores almost all red? I wonder about that…
Now before I show you these, tell me who do you think the ExperSchlockies are most worried about…?
They sure seem to have a lot to say about PAS… and I guess that all that airtime (report length) is their indication that we have the best product?!?
I think so – but don’t take my word, or that of Expertune. Check it out for yourself. Want details on how to do that? Click here to contact me.
Here's the ControlWizard chart...
and that for TuneWizard...
