“Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM” – a widely used cliché (FUD) from the 70s and 80′s. This would not work as a sales line now and perhaps, the days of “No one ever got the sack for using Gartner” and the role of AR professionals are also numbered ?
Disrupting the status quo of the legacy analyst firms with their “Fiery Fireside Chat“, on 26th September, were R “Ray” Wang (@rwang0)of Constellation Research and Phil Fersht (@pfersht) of HfS. This great discussion raised many points of interest for all Analyst Relations professionals; like: Do you have the right boss?

She’s getting closer and you’re guessing it’s about that magic quadrant. Yup, the dot moved down a little bit. The analyst won’t explain, you’ve tried his boss, send some emails and it feels you’re out of options.
Time to play the trump card. (more…)

Kable was a specialist of government information intelligence and plans to broaden its reach to other industries. Mike brought several Ovum and Datamonitor staff, including Tim Royston-Webb (LinkedIn), now the group’s MD. (more…)
