GigaOm Research Bulletin #006

Welcome to GigaOm’s research bulletin for December 2023


Hi, and welcome to the last bulletin of 2023! As we near the end of the year, we would like to express our huge gratitude to all who have engaged with us in our research processes, given us feedback, welcomed us at events, and otherwise worked with us proactively this year. 

As part of our ongoing process of improvement, we are excited to announce the release of our Online Research Calendar, covering the scheduling of GigaOm Radar reports over the next two quarters. This is being updated regularly as part of our PMO process, so the information is coming straight from the source. We are juggling 120 topics across (many) hundreds of vendors, legions of analysts, and numerous external events – so bear with us if schedule conflicts arise, we will endeavour to accommodate! Please do let us know any feedback you may have.

And what about GigaOm in 2024? For us, this year was a time of change, of creating a sustainable and efficient research platform that we can build upon. This work is never done of course, but increasingly we are turning our attention to services across end-user businesses, vendors, and channel organizations. Engage, enable, and empower with research; that’s the name of our game!

On which note, in one of the latest instalments of our podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Techy, some of our analysts and leadership team got together to discuss the realities of finance and technology investment in today’s market – Do give it a listen.
