Dear Colleague:

Greetings! As we are already into what appears to be a very busy season of Analyst Relations (AR) Community activities, we wanted to provide all of our AR Community members with an update on a few important topics:

Gartner AR Community Euro Regional Briefing Charts Posted: It was great to see many of you at our Gartner AR Community Regional Briefing on 24 September. We had more than 100 European AR Community members in attendance at the Gartner Offices in Egham, Surrey, U.K., and based on initial feedback from our audience, it was a successful gathering! While we are still processing the videos for future posting, we wanted you to be able to access the charts used throughout the day.
