A picture describes things better than a thousand words. In this case, the logos above depict quite well the changes Ovum experienced over the past few years. It will indeed be quite interesting to hear an update from the firm, now under Informa Telecom and Media (and no longer Datamonitor). There’s been some speculation about the future of Informa, so this call promises to be quite interesting.
Carter Lusher (@carterlusher) sent us the details of their next AR call, see below for more information and registration instructions.
On a side note, it’s good to see some firms holding those calls: Gartner and Ovum now do them regularly and ‘get’ the fact AR is one of their best sales channel in many cases or at least an important influencers. They bring useful insight to AR on how to understand the firms, which is essential for AR professionals to pitch analysts to their internal stakeholders. It would be good indeed to see IDC and Forrester following suit.
