System Integrator Risk Mitigation Processes Often Have the Opposite Effect
How can it be that projects continue to go wildly over budget or result in significant business disruptions but profits by systems integrators continue to rise? How is it that with fixed price contracts, modern implementation tools, and supposed sophisticated project management capabilities, clients are still getting burned?

After Sondergaard, analyst firms must take stock
“Analysts become dancers and performers, with all the good and bad that involves. They can internalise their projected self-confidence and capacity for accepting risk and ambiguity. Analysts can get carried away by the feeling of influence, their confidence, and the respect that clients show them. They start to believe their own performance. The generic reality of men in authority within male-dominated organisations has to be layered over that position. And, perhaps, even the role of the performer has additional complexities: when they are playing a role, the appetite for using authority can be increased.”

Forrester SVP: VMware Is One Of The 'Exciting' Stars Of IT Automation Era
'O'Donnell called VMware and Pivotal the "crown jewels" of Dell's $70 billion blockbuster acquisition of EMC in 2015. "It's the future," said O'Donnell. "It's the software side of it. A lot of good stuff came with EMC but what VMware and Pivotal are doing is the future. It's all about software."'

Veteran Tech Analyst Aims to Change the Research Game in Tesla and Others
The pressures of being public drive bad research management decisions, this dude believes:

“If you look at places that attract the best talent, they’re all partnerships — the old Goldman Sachs, or consulting firms like BCG and McKinsey, or law firms. You don’t want any other shareholders than those bringing in the intellectual capital. I believe ultimately the leading research houses will all be partnerships and nothing else.”

Forrester Loses $90m and Josh Bernoff | Kea Company Blogs
Forrester’s readership is changing, however. Kea Company’s 2014 Analyst Value Survey showed that Forrester’s hold on its potential audience is shrinking, especially in the freemium readership that is transforming the analyst industry. In 2014, Forrester was used by 65% of survey participants whose companies subscribed to analyst firms. That’s an impressively large number, despite being down on the 2013 percentage. Importantly, just 41% of those without corporate subscriptions use Forrester. Forrester’s audience is (like many of the top ten analyst houses) too small in the freemium segment, which is now the majority of the audience for analyst research. Of course, 41% isn’t a terrible percentage: Forrester’s the second largest analyst house, and it has a significant audience. That said, any analyst firm should look at the ratio between its freemium audience and the premium (subscription-paying) clientele. Some firms can get more freemium readers per client than Forrester does (such as IDC). When I was doing charts for the post on the industry analyst business, I noticed that Forrester’s profits had been shrinking: Without looking at the details it was hard to say if this was good or bad (a company can choose to spend profits to grow, invest in the business…or they could just be doing poorly). Anyhow, this write-up from Duncan Chapple goes over some highlights from recent earnings at FORR.

The New Stack Makers: An Interview with Adrian Cockcroft of Battery Ventures | The New Stack
I just keep getting questioned: “What’s big in cloud and what’s really happening?” You see people saying the cloud market is a hundred bazillion whatever, most of it unsubstantiated. When you drill in, you find they were making numbers up, top down. Enterprise markets are trillions and trillions, so it’s got to be some percentage right? So we’re trying to go from the bottom up to see if it makes more sense. Nice interview with Adrian Cockcroft.

Dealing with industry analysts, for startups
Dealing with industry analysts, for startups from Michael Coté Earlier this week I had the privilege to speak at HeavyBit, a developer centric incubator run by some ex-Heroku (and other!) folks. First of all, the premises of HeavyBit is awesome: for as important as developers are, there’s not enough attention paid to companies that are building developer products and services in the investing and incubation scene…so, let’s do that. If you look at the HeavyBit portfolio, it’s a nice collection of interesting developer-centric tools. Someone even used the phrase “B2D” - Business to Developer - which was certainly, you know, cute. The HeavyBit folks asked me to give some practical tips of talking with industry analysts, dealing with them as it were. I’ve done this talk from time to time over the years, but not really since 2010 formally. It’s a fun topic. The presentation is up, and there’s a recording that HeavyBit will post eventually as well. On that note, do you have any tips you’d give for dealing with analysts?

Coté • New Job - Research Director, Infrastructure Software, 451 Research
I started a new job today, going back to the analyst world with 451 Research . I’m extremely honored to have been selected by 451 to head up the infrastructure software practice, which is right in the sweet spot of the two areas of the tech industry I care most about: software development and IT management. There’s much more to infrastructure software than just “DevOps,” but those two things are always what I’m a fool for. To that point, one of the reasons I’ve always liked The 451 Group is their diverse coverage with special attention to emerging technologies. I found this section in the analysts manual today that especially resonates with me: We focus on emerging technologies and fundamentally write about change across a broad range of sectors. This could be change in a vendor’s product strategy, change in the focus of private investors or change in the M&A landscape, among other things. If you’ve know me from back in my midnight blogging and podcasts days, through my wonderful time at RedMonk, and then my work at Dell in strategy, you know that tracking that change, and talking about how developers and organizations can take advantage of it, is my “why ,” my passion. The two years I spent at Dell were wonderful, and I had a chance to learn, be challenged, and work with excellent people. From helping put together the foundational strategy for the Software group, launching and then working on Sputnik , working on Dell cloud strategy, and then Software group portfolio strategy, it was an excellent, hands on time in the industry. I hope to start seeing y’all more frequently, be it my old vendors friends, press folks, and esp. just all the individuals out there in tech world. As you’ll recall, I’m always looking for a good conversation about the tech world. My work email address is and feel free to call or txt me at +1-512-795-4307. You can expect me to keep publishing links and tiny comments here as well as my podcasts, and soon I’ll be putting up reports for 451 subscribers. I’ll also be at 451’s Hosting and and Cloud Transformation Summit later this month. Email me if you’re interested in coming, it’d be great to catch-up!

IBM to Acquire Lombardi
"My reaction is a bit different, and it reflects the comments we've been hearing from our customers: IBM already has too many BPM products, and a third one will only aggravate the situation. This acquisition might make sense if IBM intended to rationalize the products and create one leading-edge product that addresses all BPM use cases (e.g., human-centric, system-centric, document-centric, case-centric, etc). But it seems pretty clear that IBM has no intention to do so."

Gartner Buying AMR Research in $64 Million Deal - PC World
"This transaction essentially makes one big guy bigger, and removes a second from the marketplace, so it certainly changes the analyst landscape in general," said Stephen O'Grady, co-founder of Redmonk. "That said, we're pretty highly differentiated from both, in that our research focus, our audience and to a certain extent, our customer base, is distinct from either Gartner or AMR's. As a result, I don't imagine we'll shift strategies." Major analyst firms like Gartner, IDC and Forrester tend to speak to CIOs and other top IT executives, O'Grady said. "Our view is that [technology] adoption is increasingly driven bottom-up rather than top-down. ... As a result, we're most concerned with developers, which means that we tend to be more ahead of the curve than the big guys."

Gartner's 'Magic Quadrant' set for court dismissal
“The Magic Quadrant is incredibly powerful and is a huge deal," he said. "It's the difference between trying to sell something and trying to fulfill. The business of IT purchasing is predicated on requests for proposals. Everybody in the leaders [quadrant] is always going to be invited to bed."

Altimeter becomes a group. I'm betting it becomes more than that
"I think Altimeter and Redmonk are examples of a next-generation consultancy model. Instead of making money by selling proprietary data, these firms are sharing their data and selling their ability to assemble dynamic expertise to companies who are going to need it if they are to successfully navigate the road to recovery."

Another nice interview about hi-tech analyst relations: "I sat down with Gary Barnett of the Bathwick Group to discuss the state of Analyst relations. Gary confirmed some things that I believe to be true such as the relationship is key to working with analysts. Further, he confirms that analysts have great value to the sales cycle and that it is in the best interest of A/R to use them as a best practice."

How to create an unbelievable amount of buzz | KeeneView Blog
"Brief analysts to confirm your victories. Analysts like Judith Hurwitz, Michael Cote at Redmonk, Mark Driver at Gartner and John Rymer at Forrester are critical for getting the word out, but I see their role as fast followers, not leaders of market momentum. Once you have enough proof points among bleeding edge adopters, the analysts can connect the dots for more mainstream adoption, not to mention perform major messaging tune-ups!" Also, check the charming fellow in the comments.
