TalkingPointz Premium Subscription


There’s plenty of insight and analysis on TalkingPointz for free, but there’s only so much you can do in a blog post.  There’s much more to  learn in a TalkingPointz Research Note.

TalkingPointz publishes about 8 research notes a year. Some of these company profiles, and some are related to news/announcements.

Why TalkingPointz research?

  1. No commercials, no ads, and no awards.
  2. Speed. TalkingPointz is often the first to publish research and opinions after major events. For example, TalkingPointz research on Microsoft’s Skype to Teams news was published the following Monday after it was announced at Ignite 2017.
    TalkingPointz published a revised outlook on Avaya (and its announcements) a few days after Avaya Engage 2018. This is why a subscription is so important, because freshness matters.
  3. Ease. As the name implies – TalkingPointz are points, not paragraphs. Easy to consume.
  4. Interactions. The report subscription includes interactions with the author. No one leaves hungry.
  5. Opinion. Not all news is good news. TalkingPointz Research is objective and fair, not fair-weathered analysis.

Recent reports include: EC18, Avaya, Vidyo, and Microsoft. About 8 reports are published a year.
