Ovum Straight Talk Weekly

Ovum Straight Talk was created over two years ago to provide incisive, definitive, and often challenging insights about leading-edge issues. It has developed and matured into an anticipated communication, particularly the quarterly magazine format.

Recently Ovum have been thinking about how they can improve the way Straight Talk is delivered. They recognize that the ways you access key information have evolved considerably in the past few years. Therefore they’ve started some exciting projects that will enable you to access our daily opinion on your terms – whenever, wherever, and in a format of your choosing.

In anticipation of the forthcoming enhancements, the 22 October 2010 edition of OpinionWire will be the last. Later this week, they will be launching the very first edition of Straight Talk Weekly. The new product will bring you:

  • market insight from a principle analyst around the week’s key themes
  • recommended research
  • a spotlight on upcoming events
  • and more.

Members have access to the following titles:
