Leading question of the day: Are we witnessing the end of an era for analyst firms like Gartner and Forrester? https://www.cio.com/article/3258546/is-the-influence-of-gartner-idc-and-forrester-waning.html

Top Answer : We use Gartner but honestly I personally don’t feel like some external audits get it right. It really depends on whether or not they take the time to actually talk to he staff the people working not just the higher ups.

We have extracted enough juice from Gartner and Forrester reports and studies. Whilst it helps to a great extent and I have seen some views/reports are not truly aligned with the real industry situation on the ground. I suggest these analysts companies should transform and align with the revised expectations and speed of industry and not stop working.

Not exactly they will continue to evolve with new business model and align themselves to changing ecosystem, if not they will be out of market

Have used the Gartner peer insights only, I understand it’s not nearly the same thing as Gartner. I think these reports give us some additional data points to consider, they can’t possibly be used as the only way to make decisions. The leaderships teams will work together to decide how best to move forward for the organization and its customers, as i said the technology head may use these reports as inputs to support a position. Technology today moves much faster, while the reports are helpful, I think having a more real-time, pulse type report available would be more useful, not just an annual or quarterly report.

I have heard many express doubts about the veracity of their data... have not heard the reverence expressed ten years ago when decisions were made based on which quadrant had what vendor.

Disagree slightly. There's utility there. The bigger question to me is whether or not it's worth current price tags for the same levels of service we used to receive.

Very interesting questions as we have discussed this within the last couple of months.  Forrester used to be the "go to" place for analysts.  Then Gartner came along.  I've attended a number of their conferences, which seem to be over rated and very expensive.  I have found very helpful in their Magic Quadrants.  I am finding more and more similar data just Google searching.
