Mission

The Analyst Syndicate is a multi-dimensional platform through which:

  • The world’s best technology and business analysts can publish their insights and recommendations
  • All our smart readers can extract maximum value
  • All our sponsors can expose themselves to both content creators and consumers.

Crowdsourcing

We don’t know all of the world’s best analysts. We are starting with a small group of some of the best known to us, very senior, well-respected analysts, alumni of the world’s leading technology and business analysis firms. We will invite others to join based on the quality of content you provide in comments on material we publish.

Non-Exclusive

Contributors to our platform are not restricted from publishing the same material elsewhere.

Free

Readers will not pay for access. Authors of blog posts will have the opportunity to earn compensation for their contributions depending on the number and quality of readers they attract and the syndicate’s cashflow during the previous quarter. Sponsor contributions will fund our operations and reimburse contributors. 

Transparency

There will be no “pay to play.” We will not write white papers for any single vendor and our coverage will not be biased towards sponsors. Internally, documentation on all finances will be provided to all authors who have published at least two blog posts in the last quarter or four in the last two quarters.

Agendas

Freedom to innovate takes precedence over agenda plans. Every author will publish a list of upcoming research they’re planning on but each also has the right to change that list anytime and solely at their own discretion.

Coverage

We will cover emerging technologies (and other technologies that may have already emerged but also relate to emerging technologies) business impacts and the broader economic, social and governmental implications of the uses of technology.
