The Verdict Is Out: Greyhound Research ranks in top 3 Analyst firms in Asia Pacific

Yes, you read that correct! Per the outcomes of the recent Analyst Value Survey conducted by Kea Company that benchmarked 70 analyst firms in Asia Pacific, Greyhound Research has been ranked in top 3 analyst firms in Asia Pacific.

The survey was filled out by 138 industry watchers (IT Decision Makers and IT Vendors) in the region and is by far the most comprehensive study that benchmarks analyst firms and reflects on their value and importance. Here are some insights that we believe matters most to our followers, clients and industry friends.

  • Greyhound Research is the 3rd most independent analyst firm in Asia Pacific. Since its inception, Greyhound Research has maintained its stand on not undertaking any form of vendor-sponsored research. The results below reflect this well.Slide2 with watermark
  • Placing us at the 3rd spot (again), industry watchers believe Greyhound Research’s influence in Asia Pacific has significantly increased over the last year.Slide4 with watermarkAs shared in our recent blog, we are focused chiefly on what’s disrupting the IT industry – new business themes, evolving IT decision makers, emerging technologies, emerging markets and verticals – and plan to continue the same focus for the foreseeable future. We truly believe Emerging Markets – Asia Pacific Japan (APJ), Middle East Africa (MEA), Eastern Europe and Latin America – deserve exclusive focus and the attention; hence our dedication.

  • Greyhound Research is focused on the buy-side and offers solid value for money (on par with some of our Global peers!)Slide5
  • Greyhound Research is the ONLY analyst firm head-quartered in Asia Pacific to rank amongst top 10 firms that influence buyers in Asia Pacific. We also happen to be the ONLY young firm amongst the list of long existing global majors!

As shared earlier in a blog, Greyhound Research is highly focused on the buy-side community. To augment our efforts, we launched an exclusive, invite-only community of IT decision makers. Called ‘Greyhound Golden Gate’, this program has been running successfully over the past 10 months and we’ve managed to enrol CxOs from over 150 organizations in Emerging Markets. 

  • Industry watchers value and trust Greyhound Research insights – ranked 4th in Asia Pacific for our engagement with Journalists.
