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.
