Analyst Interactions & Support

We believe for clients to effectively utilize player intelligence and market analysis, they need to be combined with effective analyst support and interactions. The two thrusts need to be mutually supportive without inhibiting one or the other.

Our new research service is a unique, personalized, and powerful decision-support tool for strategy and market development, M&A activity, competitor awareness, market intelligence, business development, R&D, sales, marketing, and more. Our services are configured and aimed directly at your core information needs:

  • Forward-looking, differentiated perspective and analysis of where Smart Systems and the Internet of Things is headed and how to take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity.
  • Tailored tracking, interactions and support. We will set an agenda with you to cover topics of your choosing and configure the required interactions (in-person briefings, telecon updates, or workshops) to support your company’s goals.
  • Access to Harbor SmartSphere. Our innovative online research and content portal offers business intelligence on Smart Systems and Services players, events, investments and alliances, compiled with commentary provided by experienced researchers and analysts.
  • Expert analysis. Whether it’s our annual forecast study, our market and technology research reports or on-going ‘configured’ competitive intelligence, our analysis is aimed directly at your needs.

Harbor’s domain research services are intrinsically client-specific, and thus configured and priced specifically based on your needs and goals. Our goal is to deliver clear value whencompared to the costs and limitations of conventional research and consulting.
