WhatMatrix Community - About Us

Technical insight from the community, for the community 

WhatMatrix is different from product-review sites and commercial analysts:

Focus on transparent technical analysis, in-depth comparisons with 100+ technical evaluation criteria
(no fake or bot-infected user review engines, no biased vendor submissions)

Named, independent community leads, complemented by open community curation.
(accountability of individuals + open community feedback)

All products are listed for free, inclusion is based on capability and market relevance – no “pay to play”
(no commercial conflict of interest, no entry criteria for participating vendors)

All community members contribute in their spare time, without monetary rewards, giving back to the community. 

We believe independent technical analysis should “live” in the community.

Help us make community analysis better by contributing and suggesting changes – Thank You!
