    Analyst Relations Value Forum to discuss Tragic Quadrant

    The IIAR has updated its Tragic Quadrant, which ostensibly ranks the ten top analyst firms in terms of impact, relevance and ease of doing business with. Earlier posts have mentioned the weaknesses of both the Quadrant and the underlying method. The IIAR’s 2017 top ten drops PAC, the fifth most valuable analyst firm.

    Your pitch to analysts isn’t just about your solution

    Your pitch to analysts isn’t just about your solution

    In pitches to analysts, there are many conversations going on. At one level, there’s a communication about the business solution. There’s also a conversation about the wider market and about the personal credibility of the participants. Sometimes the slides used in pitches are just excuses for the interaction. The slides are used to assess both the market vision of the firm and the […]

    IDC could flourish after IDG’s sale to Chinese consortium

    IDC could flourish after IDG’s sale to Chinese consortium

    As we predicted in our April Fool’s Joke last year, IDC has been sold as part of a Chinese-led purchase that leaves CEO Kirk Campbell at the helm. IDG Capital will take control of the IDG Ventures; China Oceanwide will control IDG and most of IDC, and an independent trustee will take control of IDC’s High Performance Computing (HPC) practice, […]

Highly recommended – Participating in the Gartner Quarterly AR Call on September 17 and 18

The topic we hear analyst relations (AR) professionals and other vendor staff talk the most about is Gartner. There is always something brewing about the Gartnerians’ business model, research methodology, product management and policies that gets under the skin of AR pros around the globe. While there is widespread feeling in the AR community that Gartner does not listen to us, we think that a productive use of an hour is participating in the Gartner Quarterly AR Call and telling the Gartner executives exactly what is on your mind. With a variety of GVPs and VPs participating, we think that AR pros should give these executives the benefit of the doubt that they will listen to well reasoned observations with positive suggestions about how to correct the situation.

Dear Colleague:Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 17, or Friday, September 18, to participate in the Q3 Gartner Analyst Relations Webinar and Teleconference.With Gartner Symposium ITxpo season almost upon us, and with many of the Gartner AR community members attending, we’re excited to bring you a personalized “heads-up” on what to expect. Mike Anderson and Sue Landry, both from the Gartner Research team responsible for Fall Symposium 2009 agenda planning, will preview what to expect and how to maximize your Symposium experience as AR professionals.

Nancy Erskine, group vice president, office of the Ombudsman, also joins us for this quarter’s webinar with some important updates to the Gartner escalation and quote policies, which many of you participate in during the course of your work as AR professionals. Nancy will highlight some key changes and help you optimize your efforts and work more efficiently with Gartner.

Our next presenter, Jenni Lehman, group vice president, Gartner Research, will introduce to the AR community a new addition to Gartner written research documents called the “Evidence Sidebar.” This change provides a way for readers to see the analyst sources behind their research and promotes an increase in research transparency.

Our last webinar segment, delivered by Jeff Golterman, group vice president, Gartner High-Tech & Telecom Programs, will preview what to expect at the Gartner Analyst Relations Forums that will be held at Symposium/ITxpo this fall. With Gartner executives, outside speakers and Gartner CIO clients planned for our AR Forum agenda, we will give you an opportunity during the Webinar to forward the key topics and questions that you would like to see addressed at the AR Forums held during Gartner Symposium in October and November.

We very much look forward to hosting you during this quarters’ webinar — see you in a few weeks!
