Influencer Relations blog has announced the 2014 "Analyst Firm of the Year" awards. Contenders have been narrowed down to a shortlist of 18 firms which are in the top ten rankings for ten different categories. The awards aim to recognise the most valuable analyst firms, and to recognise firms that have won a leading role in specific market segments.
Greyhound Research, an Indian IT & Telecom research & advisory firm has also made the cut and is in the running for the Analyst Firm of the Year 2014. Talking about the nomination, Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst & Group CEO, Greyhound Research says, "We are glad to note that Greyhound Research has been nominated amongst the top 18 analyst firms for the Analyst firm of 2014 award by KEA Company. I truly believe the IT Analyst world is changing and fresh perspectives from younger entrants like us (we started in April 2013) are helping level out the industry. Most importantly, we are home-grown (originated in emerging markets) and focused chiefly on what's disrupting the IT industry. We truly believe that Emerging Markets - Asia Pacific Japan (APJ), Middle East Africa (MEA), Eastern Europe and Latin America - deserve exclusive focus and the attention; hence our dedication."
"Since inception, Greyhound Research continues to hold true to its values of not undertaking any form of vendor-sponsored research," says Gogia. "We keep research and advisory relevant to roles, industry and geography. We believe in harnessing the power of communities through its exclusive, invite-only community for IT Decision Makers, Greyhound Golden Gate and using its sister companies under Greyhound Knowledge Group to help companies holistically and more specifically connect Business to IT in true sense of the word," he concludes. Greyhound Research also carried out a survey along with Firstbiz analysing Indian SME perceptions around Union Budget 2014.
