The research covers the MSE CIO and their teams, and the critical roles and talent needed by MSEs. Mr. Ruggero was recently the Managing Vice President for the ERP and Enterprise Applications Research team. Prior to that, he was the head of Gartner's Executive Programs business, firstly in the APAC region, and then in the Americas and Japan, as well as working with enterprises in Latin America and Europe.
