Understanding the Canalys Managed BDR Leadership Matrix

Unlike other analyst reports, Canalys Leadership Matrix is the only channel-focused assessment which scores the leading technology vendors through an MSP-centric lens. Each year, Canalys Managed BDR Leadership Matrix assesses and benchmarks global managed backup and disaster recovery leaders.

The report reveals findings based on 20 key metrics used to determine vendor performance in their respective areas over the past 12 months. With an MSP-focused mindset, vendors are assessed and analyzed on ease of use, technological capabilities and market performance. The Matrix evaluates three primary inputs, including analyst assessment, ecosystem feedback and market share metrics.

These metrics feed Canalys’ proprietary model, which yields a series of two scores, the Leadership score and the Momentum score. The overall Leadership score represents the vendor’s current standing against the three primary inputs, while the Momentum score indicates the degree of change.
