Director Analyst in the Data and Analytics group (D&A) for IT Leaders. Mostly I cover data platforms: from legacy on-premises database management systems (DBMSs) to new cloud data platforms (CDPs). I specialize in uses of these data platforms for data warehouses, data lakes, reporting, and analytics.
Before Gartner, I was an industry analyst in four firms: TDWI, Forrester Research, Giga Information Group, and Hurwitz Group.
