We provide analyst services. I’m an analyst. We are an analyst firm. You may have read or seen such statements on various web sites or information on profiles in Linkedin, but not everyone knows what an analyst is, what role they play in the industry, how vendors see them (for the most part) and how as an analyst and/or analyst firm can provide information to enable consumers to make an informed decision.
Who am I?
Who am I? That is a line from Les Miserables but as an analyst it can be an important foundation when dealing with vendors.
At my firm, we provide advisory (for vendors), consulting (for consumers) and analyst services. As an analyst (one of my hats that I wear), it is very common for vendors to reach out to schedule an analyst briefing.
