Area of Coverage

We use the term “infra­structure” to describe the areas that we cover.  To us, the most inter­esting parts of the infra­structure are those topics that are changing rapidly due to a disruptive technology or event that poten­tially can impact the market.  Disruptive events are difficult to identify and even more difficult to quantify.  Our methodology for studying disruptive events in the market uses “expert interviews” — in-depth discussions with experts who are familiar with an aspect of the technology and its potential use cases.  When new markets are emerging there may be only a handful of people with enough experience with the technology to describe its impact.  Our expert interview methodology identifies and uses an open-ended interview format to understand their unique experiences and the conse­quences on market development.

Currently our favorite topics are virtu­al­ization, datacenter infra­structure, WAN Performance, Cloud Computing, security and Big Data.
