Reviewing Gartner Top Predictions – Who will step up?

One of the common comments about Gartner is the poor quality of the analyst work. However, it is rare that anybody actually does the work of analyzing any Gartner research. So, dear readers of ARmadgeddon, do you want to do commentary on Gartner’s predictions?

To provide an example, please see the “Comments” for an analysis of a Gartner prediction “In 2005, AT&T will be acquired by BellSouth and MCI will be acquired by SBC” which proved to be completely wrong in a very short amount of time.

If you think this is waste of time, please say so.

We get roasted for pro-Gartner bias

Perhaps Hugo Chavez will be the new face of Hugo Boss, but that would not surprise me more than a comment on Catherine Heltzerman's blog. This post includes a fascinating comment about us:

Armadgeddon excited me to start with, but I am increasingly surprised at how pro Gartner all their analysis is especially given they go under a nom de plumes.
This is a fascinating comment from James Governor. The idea that this blog is pro-Gartner will be a shock to post readers, especialy those who have read this series here.

What's eating James? Does he really think we are pro-Gartner stooge, or is it just than we don't really rate his firm on a par with them?
