    Top ten global analysts: 2016’s outstanding research

    2016 produced some outstanding analyst research. We’ve picked the best articles from each of the world’s ten leading analysts firms, as ranked in the 2017 Analyst Firm Awards. Together they show how diverse analysts’ most compelling content can be, including deep quantitative research into mature markets, like cellphones; pointed competitive insight into corporate changes, like Dell’s integration of EMC, and […]

PAC and Ovum have also risen substantially this year, rounding out the top six. In last year’s awards, we saw that firms that could create business leads for their clients […]

    Analyst Value Survey shows deeper frustration with industry analysts

    I’ve been in New York this week discussing the Analyst Value Survey with both Kea clients and industry analysts. The 2017 report will be available early in January, but the responses show that many users of analysts’ services are reaching out to more firms than before, and are gathering quite uneven value. Firstly, the good news is that many users […]

    Webinar: Survey shows new risks for analyst relations

    A first glance at the Analyst Value Survey shows new risks emerging for analyst relations professionals. We’re hosting a webinar on November 30 to hear how leading AR professionals are responding to them, and what the best practice is for your analyst relations program. Three risks stand out massively. First, there a big gap between the firms that vendors think […]

    Vendors’ five key thoughts about analyst firms

    Vendors’ five key thoughts about analyst firms

    Five things stand out from vendors’ responses to a survey we conducted after our Analyst Relations roundtable at the English Speaking Union. Analysts (including analysts who call themselves consultants or advisors) are often thought to have bias, especially if most of their revenue comes from vendors. Sometimes the effort put into staying informed makes analysts seem very process-driven but less […]

AR and analyst gathering in the Silicon Valley on Tuesday, September 15th

Analyst Relations Meet Up

We hope that everybody in the analyst ecosystem has a fun and relaxing summer. To kick off Fall, SageCircle is once again hosting an  AR and analyst Happy Hour.

The gathering will be in Cupertino in the heart of the Silicon Valley. It will be on Tuesday, September 15th, starting at 6 pm PT and going to 7:30 pm. So please drop by after work for some booze and schmooze.

Remember…. We won’t be using this as a sales opportunity for SageCircle and there will not be any formal presentations. Nor is this a meeting of SPAR or IIAR. Rather the purpose is to promote the community around the analyst ecosystem.

If you think you might be showing up for this AR and Analyst Happy Hour, please RSVP so that we can ensure we will have enough drink and finger food on hand. Contact us at 503-636-1500 or “info [at] sagecircle [dot] com”.

Please spread the word to AR, analysts and IT managers.

    where would be a good site to look for opportunities.

  3. Although this is not related to the gathering referenced above, I wanted to draw your attention to the following blog entry on my friend and former colleague Larry De’Ath. Larry, who passed away suddenly last April, was one of the greats when it came to AR–I know, i worked for him for years and even though i had several years’ experience in AR myself, i was in awe of what Larry could do. This entry provides some insight into Larry’s best practices that i think would be good to share with the SageCircle community. http://blogs.gxs.com/keifers/2009/04/larry-deaths-top-10-best-practices-for-analyst-relations.html
