Author of the Apollo Research report and the company's Managing Director, Richard Laven, stated, "The job of the tech analyst varies enormously from analyst to analyst but essentially their role is to be expert in their chosen marketplace, understand the competitive landscape and have a view, backed up by credible evidence, on which vendors are getting it right and which are not doing so well. It's their job to compare the technologies, services, solutions and products offered by the vendors and assess them." He further stated, "Few in the technology world are as influential as the industry analysts… The question is: who influences the industry analyst?"
