London, 10 March 2015 - Creating everything as a service (XaaS) and delivering innovation is set to be the major driver of IT development this year as XaaS becomes the preferred consumption model for enterprises. In its conference sessions, the European Software and Solutions Summit (incorporating the eighth European ISV Convention) will feature speakers from Gartner, HP, Interoute, Oracle, Salesforce.com and Verizon delivering their visions of how this changes how users buy IT, who buys it and how it is paid for.
More and more, businesses expect IT to enable their staff to work wherever they are located and via whatever device is most appropriate, says Duncan Campbell Senior Director, EG Alliances Marketing and Business Development Hewlett-Packard Company who is one of the presenters. “They want to have technology on-demand that can scale and is secure, PLUS pay only for what they consume. They want IT to innovate with the line of business to enable them to transform their processes and the user experience. Those IT departments that do not engage with the business will not be relevant, and their budgets will be impacted.”
Scott Liewehr emailed me today announcing that Digital Clarity Group and Constellation Research, Inc. are forming a strategic alliance to better serve their clients. Scott is CEO of Digital Clarity Group and it's no secret CMS Report is an admirer of both him and his company. Yet Scott's email still surprised me. Why would DCG, rising among the ranks among analyst firms, strike an alliance with Constellation?
The press release that accompanied Scott's email gives reasons for the strategic alliance, but I'll add one observation of my own. Both DCG and Constellation likely recognize they share the same understanding of how legacy research firms are failing their clients and believe a fresh approach to handling "digital disruption" is necessary. An understanding that can easily translates to the buyer seeking out this kind of research that two heads are better than one.
