About Insight Platforms
What is Insight Platforms?
Insight Platforms began life as a list of research and analytics software providers. We wanted to help researchers find digital tools to support their work.
Now, as well as searching the directory, our audience comes to learn.
Each year, nearly a quarter of a million people view our articles, videos, demos, ebooks, live events, training courses and company profiles.
We’re a small team of fully remote team members based around the world.

How we make money
This site makes money in four different ways.
1. Directory Listings
It is free to submit a basic listing in our directory. Most listings are free.
Featured and Startup Listings are paid.
These allow companies to be found in many more categories, to be promoted at the top of our main category pages and to be featured in our showcase.
Companies with a featured listing can also contribute educational blog content and host an ebook or white paper for download.
We run three types of events: individual webinars, Virtual Summits and Demo Days.
For each of these, companies pay us to participate and present their expertise or showcase their technology.
All our events are free to attend live or watch on-demand; in exchange, audience members consent to receive follow-up email contact from participating companies.
We host online training courses that are created by members of the Insight Platforms team, by independent subject matter experts and by sponsoring companies.
In most cases, Insight Platforms courses are paid. Pricing varies according to the nature of the course content.
Occasionally, sponsoring companies pay us to host and promote a course which is available at no cost to students.
We provide consulting services to corporate insight and research teams, agencies, technology firms and investors.
The scope of these services varies, but has included strategy development; content creation; and evaluation of potential software or data partners.
