Dear Colleague:

2015 continues as a busy year for the AR Community, and the past month since our last Newsletter is no exception. Let’s jump right into this month’s updates.

New Enhancement to Gartner Peer Insights: Gartner Peer Insights, a new and innovative platform that enables end users to rate software and services providers and their offerings, was launched to the AR Community in October and was met with high interest. We are now announcing to the AR Community several new enhancements that are available immediately: High-tech and service company professionals can now access the Write a Review experience and see an expanded list of markets covered by Peer Insights. In addition, Peer Insights reviews are now available for quoting and excerpting under the Gartner Copyright and Quote Policy.

Gartner AR Regional Briefing Videos Available: We’re very excited to announce to the AR Community the availability of video versions of the presentations delivered across several of our AR Community events. Our first selection of videos from our San Francisco Bay Area AR Regional Briefing includes AR and Analyst Best Practice presentations. We will continue to post additional video versions of our sessions as they become available.

Gartner AR Forum Barcelona Charts: On 10 November, we held the Gartner AR Forum at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo Barcelona, and charts from several of the presentations are now available. We have posted Peter’s presentation on an update on Gartner research strategy, Nancy’s update on the Copyright and Quote Policy with a post-Orlando addition pertaining to the quoting of Peer Insights and Jeff’s charts on “AR Strategies and Techniques in Magic Quadrant Management.” Ken Davis’ discussion on the new Gartner Peer Insights platform is supported by a documentation package designed especially for Gartner high-tech clients interested in learning more and to access Peer Insights.

As always, please send us your questions to, and we wish you much continued success with your Analyst Relations programs!
