To follow the IIAR Webinar with ARInsights and Huawei “Tracking Analyst Influence: Is there an easier way?” on the 29th May 2014 this describes the systems used by Huawei and a case study of their experience. The full document, presentation and recording from the webinar are all available here.
Several IT buyer surveys have established that industry analysts are the second biggest influence on technology buying decisions, behind peer groups but well ahead of consultants. Analysts influence through a number of different avenues – by direct phone conversations, by creating a broad media buzz through subscription research, media quotes and in social media such as blogs and the rapid fire of Twitter.
Intuitively, most AR professionals know that they need to track what analysts are saying via all these outlets, but are overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the task. Shouldn’t it be easy in the age of “GOOGLE” to find anything that exists on the internet? Technically, YES! Although, when you are monitoring more than a handful of analysts across their research, blogs, Twitter and media quotes, things can get a little hectic.

As an analyst relations manager you may ask yourself the question: Should I do any specific German AR? Should I run an activity at CeBIT in Hanover, or at the Supercomputing show in Leipzig or set up exclusive f2f meetings with analysts at some location like Munich or Frankfurt, and maybe do it in local language? Should I send my stakeholders to a local analyst event like the Gartner CIO summit in Berlin?
How does the German analyst landscape look like. Which industry and analyst events are relevant? How big is the German analyst firms’ influence? Continue reading
