Duncan Chapple from Lighthouse AR has posted on his blog the following entry: Datamonitor, Ovum & Butler cohabitation makes AR easier (Analyst Equity).
Overall, I would say the reactions were very postive, juste tempered by a “wait and see” attitude towards whether they will execute efficiently. This is my personal take on some of the reactions and by no means an IIAR position or the aggregation of all the present members opinions. We can’t say too much as we’re bound by an NDA, but here are my thoughts -for what they’re worth.
Still personally, I think this goes in the right direction and if they they execute it correctly, we will end up with:
- one single point of contact for the commercial aspects
- unified deliverables formats and research agendas
- no more duplication in coverage areas
