The Research Platform (TRP) serves small to large businesses, investors, and entrepreneurs with information, analysis, and advisory services focused to emerging areas of opportunity or threat, especially where communications and information technology (CIT) is increasingly having a transformative and/or disruptive impact on businesses, industries, supply chains and ecosystems. TRP will tend to engage multiple clients which have interests/needs within TRP’s established research focus areas (generally, TRP will not pursue research for a client in a new area, unless it is likely it can become an established area of on-going research focus for TRP).
The types of services TRP offers to its clients range from live briefings to physical reports that address basic information about dimensions of a particular area (e.g., market size, type, number and identity of suppliers, trends, etc.) to more in-depth, customized analyses of certain questions or issues which may be relevant to a particular client. Specialized business advisory services are also provided to support strategic planning, forecasting/scenario building, product-marketing planning, investments and M&A.
