Recommended reading on how one analyst firm is tranforming itself to the new realities of the industry...

Suffice to say that sometimes the industry analyst business looks something like the Mafia.

To take the metaphor a little further, and uncomfortably close to the truth, some analyst firms appear to run a sophisticated version of the protection racket. If you pay up we let you do business - if not we can make life real hard for you by smashing the place up/downgrading your products. Its an open secret in the business, the corpse out in the backyard we all catch occasional whiffs of.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the industry analyst business is ready for an overhaul.
