Who we are

Canalys offers the reactivity and dynamism of a much smaller company with the global coverage and local insight gained from offices in America, Europe and Asia. Experts in their fields, our analysts combine market knowledge and approachability to create tailored customer deliverables.

Our dedicated mobility services span smart phones, tablets, notebooks, netbooks, security and app stores. First to incorporate netbooks and tablets into PC market tracking, we also offer the most thorough smart phone data – tracking shipments into the channel, not sales or activations.

Within the IT infrastructure sector, our services encompass data centers, networking, security, unified communications, client PC markets and go-to-market strategies. Regardless of the customer segment, we maintain an unrivalled focus on technology distribution channels.

Each of our services benefits from the same strict methodology, with clear, global definitions and detailed, country-level data, all published on the same day with no preliminary data or forecasts. We are transparent about our facts and always happy to give more details about our findings. All Canalys customers – wherever they sit in an organization – have access to our research in their respective service areas.

Our channel partner community, Candefero, further enhances our core service areas by enabling us to provide real-time insights on market movements from the ‘people on the ground’. This unique dialog with several thousand partners forms the basis of our annual Canalys Channels Forum events.

The Canalys Channels Forums are major independent events for channel partners across EMEA, APAC and LATAM. The events bring together major technology vendors, distributors and resellers to discuss industry trends, forge new business relationships and create sales opportunities. The Canalys Channels Forums provide IT vendors with the opportunity to develop business through a combination of theater presentations, one-to-one meetings and networking with delegates. They are a great opportunity for channel partners to learn from independent analysts about the important industry trends that will affect their businesses in the short and medium term.
