If we did, we would produce ill-informed research that our customers would not respect. That's all there is to say on the matter!

On the subject of the post, I have to agree violently that targeting is key and with Gerry that relationships matters.

We took the Tweet as inspiration to talk about best practices for briefing requests and the policy differences between various firms. We did not mean to imply that IIAR was reporting it as fact. And we did our own fact-checking with Gartner, Forrester and IDC to confirm that they are not changing their policies. Our hope is that this information would be useful to the community and a starting point for future conversations. Thanks for the comment Ludovic.

We were merely asking confirmation if any "reputed firm" (the wording and the tweet aren't mine) refused briefings for non-clients. And yes, for briefing that fall into the coverage area of analysts and thus are relevant. This was thus meant to be a fact check. Melissa,
