Edge Research Group provides market research, strategic advisory, and content marketing services for technology firms. What’s behind the name?
Think about the “edge” – we can be standing on it or near it. We can be at the edge of one era, and the start of another – we can be on the verge of something new and exciting.
If we have information and insight that competitors don’t, we have an edge. We can try not to cut ourselves on the edge, but we can also use it to carve a niche or a space in a new market.
Our research is about exploring the ‘edge.’ Edge Research Group covers new ideas, new technologies, and companies that push boundaries to create new markets.
Areas of inquiry include key developments in cloud and networking at the edge of the network. Our focus is on edge compute, storage and network services such as content delivery networks. Areas of research inquiry include:
– Network edge access and security services, as enabled by SDN
– Blockchain’s impact on networking
– IoT and its impact on edge network and compute services
Edge Research Group evaluates technology in the context of creating business value. Our research spans both public and private companies that are expanding existing markets and moving across the edge of one market and into another market.
We help clients understand how markets are changing, and how to position themselves to benefit from those changes. Our services include strategic consulting, competitive intelligence reports, and support for content marketing (including custom reports, webinars, and presentations) that are built around each client’s unique requirements.
Jim Davis, founder and principal analyst, has a track record of providing insights into the technologies and companies that are influencing markets.
