Why Read This Report

Each analyst has a natural influence level for a vendor — a degree to which the analyst productively influences the market in some way that brings the vendor benefit. For many vendors, this is the full extent of analyst influence, although it's difficult to quantify, leaving analyst relations (AR) bereft of influence metrics. But this report explores how smart vendors use natural influence as the starting point for AR, which then maximizes analyst influence in visible and measurable ways.
