Under normal circumstances, we are making comments on vendor merger and acquisition activity in his blog. Today, tables are turned as Gartner announced the acquisition of Burton Group this morning. Needless to say, it’s an exciting and tumultuous time for us as we become a part of the largest research and advisory firm in the industry.
Many details of the integration plan will be worked out over the next few months, but essentially the Burton Group research product that many are familiar with and rely on remains intact within the larger Gartner organization. For many years we have been saying that Burton’s research is complementary to Gartner’s offerings – obviously Gartner came to the same conclusion!
Here is a link to a note from Gartner CEO Gene Hall and you can expect more information in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with questions or comments
