The humorous and thoughtful Redmonk Analyst Michael Cote’ has put together this infotaining slideshare on how to deal with analysts. Here’s a tip to vendors, if you’re briefing me, be sure to ask me questions and get my take, you don’t have to do all the talking, chances are, I can tell you something about clients, the market direction or what your customers really think about you.
If you’re not sure what Analysts do, see what my readers said, much of the comments were fairly accurate, some dead on. The Redmonk monastery does a good job telling their story: how to work with them, what they do, how to reach them.
In your opinion, how well do other analyst firms do at telling their story?
