    Why KCG’s analyst relations awards beat the IIAR’s

    Why KCG’s analyst relations awards beat the IIAR’s

    We used 18,777 data points from the Analyst Attitude Survey to compare the two leading awards for analyst relations teams. Although we found that KCG‘s awards are more useful than the IIAR‘s, both primarily reflect corporate performance rather than that of the AR teams. As a result, there’s very little that AR teams can do better or worse in these […]

    Netscout continues unwise Gartner suit

    Netscout continues unwise Gartner suit

    Netscout and Gartner have scheduled their trial for next July. The case stands little chance of improving Netscout’s value. It does, however, risk harming the reputation of both analyst firms and analyst relations professionals. Over the last weeks, pressure has mounted on Netscout’s lawyers. Netscout claims Gartner’s Magic Quadrant harmed its enterprise sales and that the truth of Gartner’s statements […]

    Is this how the Quadrant lost its Magic?

    Is this how the Quadrant lost its Magic?

    Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is the most influential non-financial business research document. In the late 1980s, it was a quick and dirty stalking horse to provoke discussions. Today it is an extensive and yet highly limited process, based on the quantification of opinions which are highly qualitative. The early evolution of the MQ tells us a lot about the challenge of industry […]

    David Bradshaw, one of the colleagues I worked with during my time as an analyst at Ovum, died on August 11. He led Cloud research in Europe for IDC, whose statement is below. David played a unique role at Ovum, bridging its telecoms and IT groups in the late 1990s by looking at computer-telecoms integration areas like CRM, which I […]

Blog Directory – Forrester

We have moved! Please visit our new location on the SageCircle website.

SageCircle has launched a new website that is now the location for Forrester Blog Directory and the other directories.

Register Here” in the Login box in the upper right column. You will have to validate the registration by responding to a confirmation email that will appear in your inbox in a few moments. Once registered, you can login in and then find links to the directories on the “User Menu” which will appear in the left column under “Upcoming Events.”

Besides the Twitter Directory, the website (www.SageCircle.com) is also the new location of our blog on the analyst ecosystem. You will be able to read all the past posts and comments, the latest blog posts, review the Analyst and AR Twitter Directories, signup for SageCircle’s free AR newsletter, listen to available recorded AR Coffee Talks, and more.

Please let us know what you think about the new website. We appreciate your comments as we work to improve the website and our other services.

  1. Carter and Dave,
    Just an FYI, and request to update your Analyst Blog Directory. I have established my own personal blog, and moved off the
    Forrester blogs (I was too vendor-oriented for the Security blog, and too security-specific for the Vendor Strategy blog).

    My new blog, Cyberia, is focused on security and privacy and can be found at http:/jpenn.wordpress.com. I’d appreciate if you could update your Blog Directory.
    Thanks,
    Jonathan Penn
    VP, Tech Industry – Security
    Forrester Research
