CXP Group – A European analyst powerhouse in formation?

CXPLaurent CalotWith over 20 joining the IIAR Webinar with Laurent Calot (@LaurentCalot), CEO of the CXP Group yesterday (23rd April 15) who provided a detailed overview of the CXP Group, this was followed by an enthusiastic Q&A session.
Having merged both the end-user business and vendor business of three companies (CXP, PAC and BARC) the CXP Group now provides good positions in both France, Germany and other locations (there are 17 offices in 10 countries) from combination of:
However, there is little remaining from previous partnerships such as the one between PAC and TBR > PAC and TBR announce a ‘strategic global partnership.’ Yep or RADAR PAC does Nordic.
CXP in a Nutshell – From the overview presentation …
CXP Overview
Pros: CXP is gaining in importance in Europe, increasing cross-border translations and bringing product sets together and hiring key analysts: Andy Bitterer (ex. Gartner) and Andreas Zilch (ex. Experton)
Cons: Many offerings still national (e.g. PAC Radars) potentially limiting relevance for large vendors
Bottom line:
  • AR pros should keep a watch on the internationalisation of the CXP Group offerings on the one hand and the impact of CXP Group companies in local markets where they are often deal makers.

A recording of the session and a copy of the presentation are available for members <<Here>>

The press release is scant on details about the exact terms of the collaboration but they point out that they complement themselves geographically, with TBR based mostly (if only?) in the USA and PAC being a Franco-German (or actually Germano-French) firm.

  1. What are your coverage areas?
    Everything! I’m a complete jack of all trades (and a master of none?). I’ve covered everything from CRM and ECM to e-payments and open source. And services. And printers. And…oh you get the idea. I’ve been around long enough to have seen everything at least once. Don’t you think the IT industry just keeps reinventing old problems as new ones to solve? These days I’m actually more interested in how IT firms go to market – they are generally appallingly poor at marketing themselves and their wares. Continue Reading →
