Now online! Take the Analyst Value Survey

The 2015/2016 Analyst Value Survey is now open. Please share the address,, and take the survey yourself. As the video above explains, the Analyst Value Survey plays a unique role for the analyst industry. Each year over a thousand users of analyst research share their experiences about the analysts they are using, and how competitive analyst firms are advancing. Let’s check it here.

The Analyst Value Survey (AVS) is the only public survey into how thousands of professionals value different analyst firms like Gartner, Forrester and around 100 of their most successful competitors. The survey has been held since 2001 and the results are being read by an ever increasing audience. The increasing number of participants reflects efforts by vendors, analyst firms and Panalyst, our in-house database. The results of the 2013/14 survey were viewed over 10,000 times in the first half year, and the 2014/15 results were shared over 500,000 times. The survey also provides the data for our annual Analyst Firm Awards.

Leveraging the results

  • Technology Buyers: Buyers of analyst services use the results of the AVS to see which firms are perceived as delivering the highest impact on their IT decision making.
  • Technology Providers: Analyst Relations and marketing professionals at technology providers use the AVS to improve and justify their prioritisation of relationships with analysts who impact their business.
  • Research Firms: Analyst Firms use the AVS to understand how they can deliver more value and overtake their competition.
