Briefing Our Analysts
The Tambellini Group encourages higher education technology vendors to brief our analysts when introducing a new product or service, changing a business model, or forming a partnership, merger, or acquisition. A vendor briefing with The Tambellini Group is not interactive between vendor and analyst. Analyst feedback is not a component of a vendor briefing and does not have a role within any given session.
The Tambellini Group analysts schedule briefings at their discretion based purely on an interest in the vendor, its technologies and its marketplace, not because of any fee or contractual relationship.
Why You Should Brief The Tambellini Group
Vendor briefings are used as research tool by The Tambellini Group analysts. A vendor briefing provides a unique opportunity for higher education technology vendors to present products, services and share business updates with our analysts for input into their research. Vendor briefings are vital to our higher education clients who rely on the research of The Tambellini Group to help guide their technology strategies and procurements. For example, our Peertelligent online data service provides higher education technology buyers and influencers with research and analysis to make informed decisions about software and services – without the effort of conducting their own research.

Face-to-face briefings are infrequent and are scheduled at the analyst’s discretion and based upon analyst travel requirements.
The Analyst’s Role During a Briefing
The Tambellini Group analysts use briefings to learn about changes in the vendors, products and services in the higher education market. Throughout the briefing, the analyst will ask clarifying questions on their knowledge regarding your company, your customers and your objectives. Analysts’ questions can range from specifics about customer experiences and product features or functionality, to your company strategy and competitive positioning.
You should not expect or request analyst feedback of any kind during this briefing.
