Interesting comments from James at Redmonk on our post from yesterday: Redmonk and the open source analysts.
Indeed, does scale matter? We would not dispute that Redmonk those two nice lads in a niche are doing well -a refreshing piece of news in the analyst landscape. But is this model replicable or scalable to balance the frantically assimilating and aggressive Borg dominance? Some, like Bloor, seem to think aggregation will help -we Just don’t know yet. Nice plan though…
Note to James:
- by replicable, we mean other firms’ ability to emulate the model
- as for size is concerned, we would define it by number of “employees” (ideally while maintaining the revenue per head ratio)
