Really, what else is a blog for, but to talk about yourself? Actually, I have a private blog where I do that occasionally, but I noticed that several other analysts have a posting where they introduce themselves, so I thought it would be a good idea, a best practice even.
Here is what I look like.
If you see me at conferences, I will either be on stage talking too loudly, or standing in the corner looking uncomfortable in crowds.
I am an analyst in Gartner’s collaboration and social software group. I cover most things having to do with collaboration, but especially team collaboration and unified communications and collaboration (UCC). I also work with Nikos Drakos, Anthony Bradley and several others covering social software. I tend to look at big picture, strategic issues rather than the products and underlying technologies. Not that I don’t talk a lot about products and technologies; of course I do. I’m just supposed to talk more about the top level issues.
I’ve been an analyst since 1995, when I joined META Group, covering e-commerce and content management. After the
acquisition merger, I came across and they asked me to concentrate on collaboration. I live in Amsterdam, but spend a lot of time in the French mountains near Grenoble.
Like all analysts, I seem to spend even more time in airports.
