Final Analysis: $120 Million
Doug is out today, so filling in for him is Michael Domingo, editor of MCPmag.com and the voice behind Redmond Radio.
Gartner just gobbled up AMR Research for $64 million last month, then scooped up Burton Group for $56 million this week.
Gartner's FAQ explains that their data has "strategic" implications, while Burton's is "practical." Spin is one thing and perception is another, so my questions to you is: Whose data is more useful? How much, if any, do you rely on analyst firms on your own IT planning and spending decisions? Send your analyses to email@example.com.
