Industry analyst is a tough act to master: just like a one-man-band need to combine multiple instruments, analysts usually have many talents such as writing, public speaking, educating –and ideally analysing. Do they now need to be their own publicists as well?
The pandemic has brought in a dramatic uptick in social media usage, accelerating the move to digital for many interactions. Its convenience and immediacy make it a force that’s there to stay when the new normal finally settles. So, if you have lost the password of the Twitter account you had set-up back in 2007 to kick the tyres and haven’t got a plan to engage on LinkedIn, now is the right time to jump in.Continue Reading →

Le CXP is one of the oldest IT analysis firms around. It was created in 1973, six years before Gartner, under the auspices of the French Ministry of Industry by some of the largest French companies at the time: Air France, Anotec, Bred, BSN (now Danone), EDF, RATP and the Société Générale. Its remit was to provide expertise on packaged software -hence the name in French, the deliciously quaint Centre d’Expertise des Progiciels. It’s been doing just this plus some consulting for IT users, gently and in French (Americans would call this in “local language”) until it bought PAC, a rival but vendor-focussed French firm, in 2014. At last I should say, and after PAC’s founder, Pierre Audoin, passed away.
Before this, Le CXP bought German BI specialist BARC in 2011 and PAC snapped German firm Berlecon on the same year. As a result, we’ve got a Paris based firm doing more business in Germany than France. They must like it there.
