Lux has very good analysts that we turn to often to help in our initial assessment in competitive landscaping and market trends. Their response time is very quick and their database is very user-friendly.

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!

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.

Thanks a lot for this material. As you said, lots of elements to ponder. We are going to do a proof of concept with the company you suggested. The cost of using them could be 60% lower than the competitor. The information below gives us a good external view supporting this PoC. Thanks again!

As usual, Lux provided timely, thoughtful information in response to a challenging question about the interplay of technology, economics and rational choices in the question to solve big issues in energy [hybrids and EVs]. This is the reason I continue to value Lux as the premiere provider of intelligence in the industry.
