WABAN, Mass., Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Temkin Group released a new
research report, Tech Vendors: Benchmarking Product and Relationship

based on feedback from 802 IT professionals within large North American
organizations. Microsoft servers and VMware earned the top scores for their
products while Deloitte Consulting and Trend Micro were the lowest scoring in
this category. VMware and SAP Analytics were the highest rated in the
relationship category while Deloitte Consulting and Fujitsu fell to the

"Our research shows that tech vendors have taken a step backwards in how they
serve their large IT clients," states Bruce Temkin, Managing Partner of Temkin
