Eleven lucky analyst firms can make space on the shelf. Although the Analyst Value Survey remains open, our analysis of hundreds of early responses to the 2021 study highlights 11 analyst firms delivering exceptionally high value to users across multiple awards categories. We think these firms are so likely to win Analyst Firm Awards, that we are giving them the status of Nominee. This is the first year that early notice of awards has been given publicly.
In alphabetical order, those firms are:
- 451 Research
- Everest Group
- Forrester Research
- Frost & Sullivan
- HFS Research
- Omdia (Ovum, Informa)
These will not be the only firms to win awards, but our current analysis forecasts the firms shown above to win in multiple categories. The firms set in italic also won in multiple categories in the 2020 Analyst Firm Awards.
Emma Hawke, at the Analyst Observatory, will be contacting firms in the next few weeks to give them the Nominee logo.
