Vendor Watchlist

This is my new way of tracking vendors in the broader BSM Value Proposition space (BSM and BSM Enabling Technology). I do not endorse any one vendor, but they each have things that I personally find valuable to a BSM strategy. I try hard to keep this up to date, but as you know, the industry is very dynamic!
