Industry analysts from Gartner, IDC, Supply Chain Insights and more add real-world context to the findings with a detailed analysis of each category, comparing this year's lists to 2012 results and highlighting emerging trends.
CGT also recognizes companies in each category that received special accolades from readers in the following areas:
- Customer Experience: This recognition identifies the one company that received the highest average customer satisfaction rating from users in its respective category.
