How the Cloudswave Awards Ranking Works

The Cloudswave Awards ranking is based on the proprietary Cloudswave Score which is designed “to deliver an unbiased weighted average rating that takes into account the degree of importance of each software review source.”

Below are some points detailing how this weighted moving average score works (the following information are taken from the Cloudswave website):

  • The sources are carefully selected based on their seriousness, credibility, degree of independence, their user verification processes, and their focus on business software
  • We do not take into account the reviews written on
  • Sources are weighted according to a logarithmic domain authority score provided by Moz
  • We crawl all the selected sources on a daily basis to gather the latest reviews and update the Cloudswave score of all the listed software
  • Sources that provide numerical ratings of their reviews weigh more than “non-numerical rating” sources
  • Reviews and ratings are considered as is. We do not intervene to filter out unpleasant reviews
  • The cloudscore is a moving weighted average: Older reviews have less impact than fresh reviews.
