Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We demoed each product against a few instances for a month. We made our final decision on price. I am not saying price is not a major factor but I should have spent more time investigating the support model and checking sites like Trust Radius.

Other products now allow for reasonably priced job management. This would make them more competitive and we would probably set up a test environment to run all of those products competitively. Ideras tools in particular are now more worth considering. However, familiarity and trust in the existing product is keeping us on the platform.

I wouldn't change a thing. Our evaluation process is very thorough. We look at the overall value to our organization through live trials. We will continue to follow this process to land at the best tool that meets our needs. Like many organizations, we constantly look at available technology. As people, products and technology change, we have found this approach to be the best. Today that process keeps us on SQL Sentry.
