Insight. Inspiration. Impact.

HFS is a research, insight and advice company that primarily serves the technology and services industry. We provide visionary insights into the major innovations that impact technology and business operations and our research, insights and analyses help senior decision makers.  At our core, we are an industry analyst firm and our CEO and founder, Phil Fersht is a well-known industry influencer. 

As an organization, great research and client projects excite us. We integrate and work collaboratively with our clients with our analysts working as an extension of their teams – or running projects on their behalf.

We believe that research insights that inform the industry and challenge thinking should be readily accessible. We make all of our points of view (POVs), blogs and industry Hot Vendor reports available at no cost to our community of subscribers.

We also offer more client-tailored research and strategic advisory sessions on a subscription basis and bring our research and ideas to life through the lens of what we call OneOfficeTM . This is our vision of the future of business operations and a framework for implementing it.

As industry analysts, we pride ourselves with having a pulse on the market. We have an extensive network of clients, conduct over 5000 enterprise interviews annually and have been recognized multiple times as an industry leader and influencer.

We are also known as disruptive thinkers. We like to think BIG and host the conversations that are changing the industry. In fact, we believe it is important to challenge the status quo and continue to push our thinking for the benefit of all. We are always unbiased and pride ourselves on ‘telling it like it is’; Always thoughtful, somewhat provocative but transparent and straightforward in approach.

We know that timely research insights and analysis of market trends are vital to support your business decisions, so we never compromise on quality but you will see that we publish new thinking regularly. We think more like a start up, so that means we are agile and responsive to our clients’ needs.  We’d like to know more about how we can help your business.
