As our initial research briefly touched on an overview of CrowdStrike including its specialties, revenue, growth, customers, and geographies, we recommend continuing our research with the following: 1) provide a company analysis of CrowdStrike to include its target market or audience, products/services offered, how they sell their products/services (i.e. partners/channels), and their key initiatives/areas of focus, 2) provide a detailed overview of CrowdStrike's core businesses to include the categories of products and/or services offered that contribute the most to the company's profits and include details about what those categories entail 3) provide an overview of CrowdStrike's growth in the past five (5) years. We will highlight the business areas/units that are/have been driving its growth and mergers and acquisitions (if any), and 4) provide marketing insights about CrowdStrike by providing details about its marketing efforts and channels used, competitive advantage, value proposition, brand positioning and messaging. We will also provide at least 3 creative examples of its marketing efforts.
We also suggest further research to 1) identify four (4) companies that are competing directly with CrowdStrike.
