451 Research springing into 2018 with changes and successes

The first quarter was a busy one at 451 Research, and it’s hard to believe spring is already here! Our global analyst team continues to be in high demand. To date in 2018, our analysts have met with more than 50 customers face-to-face, conducted more than 600 briefings, hosted 20 client webinars, and delivered over 300 hours of inquiry, speaking and strategy sessions. And if that’s not enough to keep us busy, we’ve also managed to publish more than 450 Market Insight reports and 50 long-form Technology and Business Insight reports and associated datasets.

As we kick off Q2, we are excited to announce some important changes and additions to our research organization. We’re also happy to introduce a new research delivery platform that will be available to 451 Research customers later this month. These changes will allow us to more effectively deliver on our core mission: to better serve our customers.
