GigaOm Research Bulletin #001 News-thread



To begin, let us express our appreciation for the participation of providers in our research last year. We are now researching 1,700 vendors in 120 solution categories. Last year we received information from a total of 836 providers, which is staggering. Whether it’s responding to requests for questionnaires or fact checks, or simply including ourselves in general information programs, we couldn’t do our job without the input and support of relationships with analysts, product leaders and others. Thanks for that!
