In June 2008, the Institute of Industry Analyst Relations (IIAR) announced its awards for industry analysts. CCS Insight was honoured in two categories: Analyst Firm of the Year and Communications and Networking Analyst of the Year.
We took tenth place in the global Analyst Firm of the Year award, competing with over 100 rivals, including the biggest names in the industry. Ben Wood, CCS Insight’s director of research, beat some notable figures in the mobile community to come second in the section dedicated to communications and networking analysts.
Nominations and votes for the IIAR awards come from a survey of more than 100 analyst relations practitioners worldwide. Respondents were asked who they felt were the best individuals and most important and relevant firms in the analyst world.
CCS Insight’s strong performance in the IIAR ratings occurs just two years after the company rebranded and set its sights on becoming a major force in the mobile and wireless analysis industry.
