IT management, line of business management, and vendor clients appreciate the breadth of experience, industry knowledge, and real-world perspective that our analysts use to provide insight into the specific issues they face. Every primary analyst has over 25 years of experience in IT and related areas, including front-line and executive functions in pre-sales technical support, development, alliance management, product marketing and program management.  In those rare cases where we lack a needed skill in-house, we work with outside consultants to find solutions for your problems.
