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. Crisp Research, ESG and Machina (Gartner’s IoT boutique) make the IIAR’s top ten. Major demand-side influencers including Everest Group, ISG and NelsonHall fail to get a mention.

The TQ will be one of the topics debated at the international Analyst Relations Value Forum, to be held at King’s College London on September 14th. To register your interest, sign up at
