My Team

Updated September 16th, 2016.

At Gartner, I work with a broad range of other analysts to cover the spaces that I watch. If you’re a vendor that interacts with me, here’s a guide to some other analysts that you should know.

There are three groups of analysts here at Gartner who have coverage related to mine, who belong to three different teams. Those teams are our Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) team, which is part of the division that offers advice to technology buyers (what Gartner calls “end-user organizations”) in the traditional Gartner client base of IT managers; our Technology and Service Provider (“T&SP”) division, which offers advice to vendors and investors along with end-users, and also produces quantitative market data such as forecasts and market statistics; and our Technical Professionals division (formerly our Burton Group acquisition), which offers advice to technology implementors, generally IT architects and senior engineers in end-user organizations.

We all collaborate with one another, but these distinctions matter for anyone buying research from us. If you’re just buying what Gartner calls Core Research, you’ll have access to research targeted at IT leaders. To get access to T&SP-specific content, though, you’ll need to buy an upgrade, usually in the form of a Gartner for Business Leaders (GBL) research seat. The Technical Professionals (GTP) resesarch is sold separately; anything that GTP analysts write (that’s not co-authored with analysts in other groups) goes solely to GTP subscribers. The I&O analysts and T&SP analysts are available via inquiry by anyone who buys Gartner research (although you must have a GBL research seat to ask about T&SP content regardless of its author), but the GTP analysts are only inquiry-accessible by those who buy GTP research specifically. You can, however, brief any of us — client status doesn’t matter for briefings.
