Canalys has announced the launch of a new addition to its portfolio of mobile apps, Insight @Canalys, to make high-tech market intelligence and insight publicly available. The app is available for Android devices through the Google Play store, for iPhone and iPad users via the Apple App Store, and for other mobile device users as an HTML5 web app.
‘We want to give everyone with an interest in technology markets access to our headline data and market intelligence, from those working in the industry, to university students aspiring to join it, and from journalists and tech bloggers to tech-savvy consumers,’ said Steve Brazier, CEO and President, Canalys. ‘Alongside our already popular content catalog app for clients and our world-class Canalys Channels Forum event apps, Insight @Canalys shows we practice what we preach. We have embraced the mobile app revolution and not just watched the market from afar. We are committed to finding innovative, streamlined ways to share our insight and market intelligence with an increasingly mobile client base while also engaging with other audiences.’
The Insight @Canalys app allows users to access a growing library of market-leading research, previously only available to clients, delivered through clear and accessible graphs and charts. The app features ongoing market, ecosystem and product analysis, and market-sizing and forecasting for a range of technology markets. These include: smart phones and mobile phones, tablets and PCs, apps and app stores, appcessories and wearable technology, network infrastructure, IT security, data center infrastructure, and unified communications.
The app offers users the ability to share graphs and charts via e-mail or a range of global social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Weibo. Content is categorized by industry and users can search for information relating to a particular industry sector, region or product category. The app will be updated frequently with new charts and graphs highlighting different trends and key data points from Canalys’ vast and diverse datasets.
