"TRA is a standout research partner for Channel Asia across Asia, demonstrating unrivalled knowledge of the local market and a sharp understanding of both customer (end-user) and partner (channel) priorities. This joint expertise is rare for any analyst firm and demonstrates a vast array of specialisation from all aspects of the technology spectrum, whether the ecosystem approach of vendors, distributors and channel partners or the future investment plans of end-users – or both.
TRA is a also master at going beyond surface-level insights to provide crucial in-depth context when presenting data and advising the market – recognising that general commentary stating the obvious is no longer a credible source of information. Knowledge spans the entire technology stack – from hardware to cloud – and is shaped by the delivery of pragmatic guidance and realistic advice with analysts aware of the day-to-day realities of the market. TRA is a one-of-a-kind research firm backed with a credible, strategic and collaborative approach to partnering... an important voice of authority in a crowded market."
