Tekrati – a go-to source for news and information about the analysts

logo-tekrati.gifLast week Dave Eckert and I sat down with Barbara French for lunch at Buck’s, the renowned hangout of VCs and digerati. It’s always a pleasure to chat with someone knowledgeable and opinionated about the IT analyst industry and analyst relations. The conversation ranged from industry gossip to AR best practices to the small but dynamic AR services market and ideas how to get a more active on-line community going.
 
Barbara is the founder and executive editor of Tekrati: The Industry Analyst Reporter, the leading analyst industry news site. Tekrati is an incredibly rich source of information about the analysts including:

  • Directory of analyst blogs
  • Directory of analyst firms
  • News about firms and analysts (e.g., new analyst hires and research services launched)
  • News about research publications, organized by market
  • Opinion column by Barbara
  • Special search functions for analyst blogs, analyst firm websites and analyst credentials

photo-barbara-french-at-bucks.jpgAnalyst Profiles is Tekrati’s analyst directory and includes biographies and photos. The cost is $397 per year.
 
Bottom Line:  Tekrati is a very useful and feature rich website. Highly recommended for anybody who interacts with the analysts.
 
Question:  What do you think of Tekrati?
