Infoholic Four Wall provides a unique distinguishable process of identifying major players/vendors in a market on a given segment. It’s a culmination of research for a market/product/service/solution, giving a holistic view of the relative positions of the market's competitors. The differentiation comes here from the fact that analysis is done on four major parameters i.e. Business Strategy, Market Growth, Innovation and survey amongst users on various parameters

Each player has been measured on the above-mentioned parameters and have been given a specific position on the wall. The walls are:

1.“Emergers”, the first wall represents players who are niche and small. These players are either new to market or have just plunged into that segment (with a limited revenue). These players have the penchant for dominating the market.

2.“Climbers”, the second wall represent players who have a revenue greater than “Emergers” but have been in market longer than them with a greater revenue and market share. These players have a certain understanding of the market but have not yet achieved a total dominance.

3.“Dominions”, the third wall is representation of the players who have a long vision and have executed their strategy well. They have a long-term focus giving them a competitive edge.

4.“Popular”, the fourth wall representation is purely based on end users input (CxO level) across regions. This has been achieved through a set of questionnaires and telephonic interviews with respective strategic decision makers.
