GigaOm Research Bulletin #004

Welcome to GigaOm’s research bulletin for August 2023

Hi, and welcome back!

Our CEO Ben Book has taken GigaOm from a boutique analyst company to what is now recognized as a leading analyst firm, redefining the nature of analysis in the process. Here he looks at how the market for research has evolved and how GigaOm has shifted to align with the needs of end-user organizations as they prepare for a data-driven, digital future.

Our latest podcast discusses how organizations could implement technical strategies instead of spending most of their time putting out fires. Give it a listen!
