The goal of ESG Technical Validations is to educate IT professionals about information
technology solutions for companies of all types and sizes. ESG Technical Validations are not meant to replace
the evaluation process that should be conducted before making purchasing decisions, but rather to provide
insight into these emerging technologies. Our objectives are to explore some of the more valuable
features and functions of IT solutions, show how they can be used to solve real customer problems, and
identify any areas needing improvement. The ESG Validation Team's expert third-party perspective is based
on our own hands-on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production
