Following our IIAR Webinar with Soichi NakajimaSoichi Nakajima / IDATE DigiWorld, Digital Telco Practice Lead (@NakajimaSoichiLinkedIn) at IDATE DigiWorld, here’s his interview in ten questions.

1. What are your coverage areas?
I cover all things Internet services and players; if you want to talk about the GAFA(M), FAMGA (yes it’s the same thing), FANG, BAT(X)… I’m all yours. To add a bit of flavor, I specifically take a telecommunication angle to cover the intersections of the Internet and telco worlds. Naturally this leads me to cover the US and China often, but being based in France we also have great European coverage, and it helps being Japanese to cover the Far East.

Around Andy Butler / ex. Gartner in 10 questions….

Today we ask our probing questions to the well renowned Andy Butler (LinkedIn) just retired VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner (Alumnus), who gives us his views on the the industry in 10 questions. Enjoy..

Andy Butler, ex. Gartner for the IIAR website

 

  1. How long have you been in the IT industry and where did you begin your
    career?
    I can claim a 45 year unbroken period in the industry. I left school at 18 and immediately started working, as I was not convinced that a university course would be necessary for where I wanted to go. Back then it was still possible to get into a profession without a degree; something that is much harder to achieve these days. I was able to join Nielsen Research, who employed school leavers with decent grades to be fast tracked into professional roles. After a few months working in a research QA function, I found a role as an RPG II programmer on their IBM System 3 Model 10. I then followed a typical “IT apprenticeship” through programming, systems analysis and finally IT management roles that evolved into various software and hardware product marketing positions at HP prior to joining Gartner in 1997.

Around Vernon Turner from Causeway Connections in 10 questions

Today we ask our probing questions of VernonVernon Turner / Causeway Connections (IIAR Around in 10 Questions) Turner (LinkedIn, @vernonxt)  Principal and Chief Strategist at Causeway Connections.

 

  1. What are your coverage areas?
    All things Internet Of Things tend to be my opening conversation piece, but given my experience in the ICT industry, the topics quickly go to enterprise infrastructure (including the network side), mobility, carriers, cloud), and now the trendy Blockchain, AI, and Digital Twin gets mentioned. The only thing missing is the kitchen sink.
  2. What are your opinions of the IT Analysis Marketplace and where do you see it going?
    I really think that the industry is ripe for disruption and new business models will emerge. I don’t just mean the way we have the Tier 1, 2 and the rest – I mean how we address an integrated delivery model between B2B2C and the analysts. Continue Reading →

Around Shawn Fitzgerald in 10 Questions

Today we ask our probing questions of Shawn Fitzgerald, (LinkedIn@IDC)Research Director, World Wide Digital Transformation Strategies at IDC. Shawn recently joined IDC 

IDC

  1. What are your coverage areas?

I’m responsible for leading and coordinating IDC’s World Wide Digital Transformation (DX) Strategies Practice and continuing to ensure IDC’s thought leadership in the digital economy. As you may already know, IDC estimates the economic value of DX to be $20T or more than 20% of global GDP.

  1. What are your opinions of the IT Analysis Marketplace and where do you see it going?

The role and value we, as analysts, provide is tremendous and is ever more important to smart technology strategies. Today, technology is so core to businesses delivering on their brand promises, both products and services. Making a bad technology decision has such an impact on strategic and operational performance in a way that wasn’t the case 20 or 30 years ago. Conversely, making the right choices can enable break-through business performance and really create world-class customer differentiation capabilities. I’ve yet to meet successful business leaders who don’t want access to those insights. Continue Reading →
