2011 was a great year for GigaOM Pro, as our startup within a startup continued to grow quickly on all fronts. We’re counting on 2012 to be even better year, as we stay on top of changes in fast moving markets and look to increase the value we offer to subscribers of GigaOM Pro.
One of the areas we’ve seen huge demand for research from both our online and corporate customers is in the area of enterprise IT and cloud computing. From our tablestakes infrastructure, platform and storage coverage, to surging interest in all things big data, to evergreen topics such as enterprise mobility and social enterprise, we can’t produce research fast enough for our customers in this space.
So as 2012 will no doubt bring new opportunities, it will also bring a new face to GigaOM in Jo Maitland, our new Research Director for Enterprise at GigaOM Pro.

We have big plans in 2012 and expect Jo to be a big part of our success, please help me welcome her to GigaOM Pro. You can follow her over Twitter and over at GigaOM Pro, where she’s already finished her first report and will also be our infrastructure curator.
