The role is a mix of internal and external analyst relations activities that include developing strong relationships with key IT and industry analysts who influence buying decisions in the Teradata market. These include such firms as Gartner, Forrester, IDC and others.

You will develop a broad understanding of the full Teradata suite products and services and build a strong network with Teradata subject matter experts and executives. This knowledge and internal collaboration will be used to build and nurture appropriate relationships with key analysts in order to drive more positive commentary, recommendations and coverage.

The Analyst Relations team takes advantage of the unique position that these key outside influencers have with our prospects and customers to help drive revenue. You will leverage analyst research and opinion to convey market trends and information to Teradata sales, marketing, product development, and executives, as well as raise the awareness of the AR program internally.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Develop and manage strong relationships with key analysts in both the IT and industry segments for Teradata’s market
  • Execute briefings and inquiries with relevant analysts and company spokespersons to ensure ongoing engagement and to affect positive opinions of Teradata, its market strategies, products and services with the analysts
  • Increase Teradata’s inclusion in analyst research reports, market perspectives, market share data, and industry event presentations, where applicable
  • Work to establish Teradata as an integral part of the end-user consideration set via analyst recommendations on buying decisions

This position requires a person who possesses broad company knowledge and good relationships across the organization, so as to appropriately align the organization and the analysts’ needs. 

This person must have previous experience in working with Gartner and Forrester and know how to navigate Tier 1 Analyst firms.

As many of the analysts are acknowledged thought leaders in their field, they are often sensitive to any disagreement, so this position must be able to negotiate well to achieve a win-win solution and to push back forcefully but sensitively so as to keep a positive, yet long-term, working relationship. This position requires someone with professional written as well as verbal communication/negotiation (occasionally confrontational) skills. Successful candidates must be able to gather all facts and decipher opinions from reality quickly and then objectively, yet forcefully, communicate to the analysts/consultants, and then continue a long-term relationship.
