Well, almost…. Ovum kindly gave us an exclusive for the video below.
The London event featured “the Patriarch” Gideon Gartner (the founder of Gartner and Giga), superstar Jonathan Yarmis (LinkedIn, ex. AMR and now with Ovum, @jyarmis) and IIAR co-founder and AR extraordinaire David Rossiter (blog, @davidrossiter, LinkedIn, firm). The New Amsterdam event was with Carter Lusher instead of David.
The “fireside chat” is on the IT analyst business, its beginnings and weaknesses in the original model bringing technology and business together over the course of the last 20 years. It contains quite a few really good thoughts provoking issues, including:
- What’s the future of IT analyst firms?
- Is the average age and experience of analysts decreasing?
- Should IT analysts be paid like financial analysts, on results?
- What should be the alternatives to Gartner?
