Overall Satisfaction with Sysomos MAP

I was consulting with a company that was involved in political polling and social media for political candidates and campaigns. I used Sysomos Map to query conversations regarding candidates, their campaigns and other wide varying subjects regarding climate change, alternative energy and traditional energy economic impacts. Sysomos Map gathers conversational data across the internet in detail from websites, forums, blogs and all major social media outlets. Sysomos Map is very effective at being able to reach backwards in time; which was very important and enlightening for my work.


  • It is particularly good at being able to look backwards in time at conversations.
  • The information generated from queries is rich, and comes off in real time.
  • The graphs generated along with data as spreadsheets is intensely rich with useful information.


  • Sysomos MAP does take some significant ramp up time to get a comfortable level of usability due its richness and sheer power of scraping from billions of conversations and web data.
  • Sysomos MAP needs better tutorials and tools to help users quickly become adept at using.
  • Sysomos should offer longer trial periods.
  • The entry price is quite [high] compared to other tools that are now offered.
  • The pricing structure is makes entry tough for many businesses and Sysomos could do better by offering alternative pricing and use possibilities.
  • It was very important to be able to scrape conversations that are dated. Sysomos MAP does this better than any tool we tried.
Sysomos is a top tier and most sophisticated tool when compared to an entry level product like uberVU. It is not as friendly as Viralheat yet scrapes backwards in conversational/data history which Viralheat cannot.
I think purchasing or leasing Sysomos MAP is well suited for large media and advertising organizations.
