"...gave us additional data to help refine our roadmaps."

Shrout Research helped us evaluate our product offerings in comparison to competing solutions. Ryan and his team have a compelling outlook of the landscape for mobile hardware, large screen devices, and emerging markets and they have provided valuable insights. This was very useful as it gave us additional data to help refine our roadmaps. The team at Shrout research is highly professional and thorough in their research and data analysis. I would highly recommend them for future projects at ARM.

“Thoughtful and insightful discussions.”

Ryan Shrout was invited into AMD’s Software Leadership strategy meetings as an external advisor. He led the senior level managers into thoughtful and insightful discussions on the state of PC gaming and the overall tech industry. He had an excellent presentation ready for us, but more importantly shared his vision of industry trends. This led to a very productive session for AMD and several strategic initiatives will be kicked off based on his recommendations.
