Working with Lux has been excellent. They provide insightful information on a proactive and summarized basis, which is exactly what I need. The breadth and depth of emerging technology and market coverage provided as well as the discussions and exchanges with Lux analysts on topics of particular interest have been particularly valuable. The Lux engagement team has always been very helpful, too!Steve Griffiths, Senior Vice President, Research and Development, Office of Vice President for Research | Khalifa University
Our company was reviewing a new IoT offering from a vendor. We hired one of the Big 4 consultants to do a major review of the vendor offering, it was going to cost us $275k. The Lux report hype-busted the offering and it was enough that we canceled a $275k consulting project. Lux saved us $275k – that single report was worth the entire annual contract and then some.Program Director, Business Strategy and Development, Fortune 500 Company
Feedback about Lux is very positive. I see Lux Research as an invaluable resource to help do my job more effectively and provide relevant advice to my business and corporate leadership.Paris Tsobanakis, Manager of Disruptive Innovations and Emerging Technologies | Cargill, Incorporated
