| About Technology Evaluation Centers, Inc. (TEC)
Established in 1993, TEC is the first web-native technology research enterprise. TEC provides decision support solutions that enable stakeholders to objectively identify the software products that best fit their company's unique business and systems requirements, and that contribute most effectively to superior business performance. TEC has a library of knowledge bases, ranging in content from enterprise resource planning (ERP), supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), business intelligence, and outsourcing, to enterprise financial systems, health services, radio frequency identification (RFID), and open source, all with data vetted by analysts.
TEC's solution is driven by its powerful analytic engine. Users deploy this engine to analyze knowledge data at any level of granularity, across any dimension. The analytic engine leverages TEC's quantitative assessment methodology to deliver an appropriate statistical recommendation. TEC's methodology, which is based on regression-correlation and Bayesian pattern matching techniques, compares detailed user requirements and priorities with detailed product capability ratings, and makes appropriate adjustments to account for product capability ratings that exceed or fall short of client requirements.
