IDC's Private Vendor Watch Service provides detailed data and analysis on emerging technology vendors, markets, and deals that can't be found anywhere else. The Private Vendor Watch Service was designed by financial and strategic investors to address a gap in the marketplace for accurate information and expert guidance on smaller, private tech vendors before they hit the public radar. Each year, the service produces hundreds of company profiles by conducting actual company briefings; each profile includes detailed company vitals, combined with expert IDC analysis on potential gaps, opportunities, differentiators, and much more. The service also tracks all technology M&A and IPO activity, including deal values, market classifications, and trend analysis with large quarterly reports and biweekly deal feeds, all captured in an online database.
