Around Douglas Hayward from IDC in 10 questions

Today’s star analyst in our reasonably priced Around in 10 Questions series is Douglas Hayward from at IDC. You can find Douglas at Twitter under @douglashayward.

1. What are your coverage areas?

From October 2010 (earlier in reality), I’ll be co-ordinating IDC’s Western European IT services and business services forecasts (business services basically means business consulting services and BPO). I’ll also be running the European Services: Markets and Competitive Insights subscription research program, an overview program that tracks the dynamics and fortunes of the European services market, and those of the key vendors.

I’m also launching a very exciting new IDC service that I can’t talk about yet.  As well as all that, I’ll continue tracking the business consulting market in Western Europe – but note that from October onwards, I’m no longer officially tracking BPO in Western Europe. I reckon I’ve got enough to keep me busy without BPO. Continue reading
