Why Jackdaw?

Jackdaw Research is a small, new analyst and consulting firm, and as such you might wonder why you should work with Jackdaw. Here are some of the key reasons:

  • Jackdaw takes a different approach to the market. Most of the analysts in the technology space focus narrowly on one particular area, but the most successful companies in the space – Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, major carriers and others – compete across major categories like hardware, software, content, communications and connectivity. As such, it takes a broad perspective to really understand these companies and the keys to success, and that’s the approach Jackdaw takes. More information on this approach may be found here.
  • Jackdaw is widely respected in the industry and widely quoted in the media. Since launching in November 2013, Jackdaw Research has been quoted in a large number of publications, including major US newspapers (New York Times, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, USA Today), major tech blogs (CNET, BGR, LightReading, FierceWireless), news agencies (Reuters, Bloomberg), news weeklies (BusinessWeek, TIME, Newsweek), and on TV and radio (BNN, WNYC). The companies covered by these articles included Apple, AT&T, BlackBerry, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Sony, T-Mobile, Verizon and others. A listing of recent press coverage may be found here.
  • Jackdaw is influential. We have relationships with major carriers, device vendors, online services companies, infrastructure vendors and many others in the industry. We regularly present to them privately and to wider audiences at industry events. Jackdaw Research has a public blog at Beyond Devices, and Chief Analyst Jan Dawson also blogs regularly at Tech.pinions.
