“Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM”

“Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM”  – a widely used cliché (FUD) from the 70s and 80’s. This would not work as a sales line now and perhaps, the days of “No one ever got the sack for using Gartner” and the role of AR professionals are also numbered ?

Disrupting the status quo of the legacy analyst firms with their “Fiery Fireside Chat“, on 26th September, were R “Ray” Wang (@rwang0)of Constellation Research and Phil Fersht (@pfersht) of HfS. This great discussion raised many points of interest for all Analyst Relations professionals; like: Do you have the right boss? Who do the analysts speak to in your company? and Do you spend too much time completing surveys ?

So if you missed the IIAR Webinar with les enfants terribles of the industry research industry or want to listen again you can read the report, listen to the recording or run through a relevant presentation from Ray Wang.
