  1. Interesting – only IDC seems to have nose-dived in 2007, with all the other big analyst firms doing well. why do you think that is?

  2. I wish more firms were public so we would have more data. Oh well.

    Probably a few factors:

    – Straight up price increases

    – Transitioning clients to role-based services, which have a higher price tag than WholeView and Core Research

    – More bag-carrying sales reps selling into enterprises, which offsets losses in vendor client base due to market consolidation

    – More events
