Hyland CommunityLive 2022

Hyland took the plunge this year to return to an in-person (Nashville, TN) customer event. That decision was not an easy one to make. Many other tech firms have been struggling with the same decision-making process in the wake of the pandemic. But thankfully, it worked out well, and Community Live was well attended. So …

5 Years of Deep Analysis & Market Shifts

It’s hard to believe that I founded Deep Analysis five years ago (almost to the day). It’s hard to believe we made it this far and that we are looking forward to the next five. But maybe what is hardest to grasp is just how much our industry has changed over these past few years. …

Deep Analysis Reports

2021 Deep Analysis Pick of the Pops

analyst notes we published at Deep Analysis in 2021? There are 89 in total! As the writers of this research, we have our personal favorites, but we thought it would be fun to just pull the numbers and see what were your favorites – remember our research is open source so anyone can access it from anywhere. That said  I would never have guessed the following would have been the most popular reports of 2021 in a million years 🙂

The Danger of Over Simplifying Complex Enterprise Software

Even though analysts need to label and sort enterprise technologies into neat silos, this practice has always been of limited value. As it often makes navigating a buyer toward the right product for their needs much harder than it should be.

Innovation Index

The 2020 Deep Analysis Innovation Index………

2020 has been a year of misery, economic crisis, hardship, political upheaval, and of course, COVID 19. So we want to close this year out with a positive, socially distant, and safe celebration of our industry. To that end, we will soon be launching our Innovation Index Report; in this report, we highlight the technology vendors that have stood out and moved the needle for us.

Enterprise Blockchain 2021?

This past week Peter Brooks and I finished up some client research on the topic of Enterprise Blockchain. The fact is from a year or two of POC’s and poking around; real-world implementations are now underway. What’s interesting to us is that there are two ends to the spectrum of Enterprise Blockchain. At the one end, significant ambitious projects, like transforming entire global supply chains, and the other end, the transformation of under-appreciated but critical tasks. Oddly though, on the surface, there doesn’t seem to be much in between.

blockchain disruption

Enterprise Blockchain – its coming, ready, or not.

Although as analysts we try our best to be ‘opinionated’ pragmatists so one thing we know for sure is that the numbers don’t lie. So we can state with certainty that Enterprise Blockchain is a growing market and is set to continue to grow substantially…. Even though it will face plenty of challenges along the way.

Enterprise Blockchain progress and challenges

It turns out that building a global blockchain infrastructure, though not cheap or straightforward, is very do’ able. What was impossible to access just five years ago is now accessible from any connected laptop with the swipe of a credit card. Though admittedly, there is more to be done, the global blockchain backbone exists today and is available to anyone that wants to use or develop upon it.

Shell Kittiwake

Oil & Gas – Information Management Crisis

This year we spent time researching and talking to experts in Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the US. The result is this new report Oil & Gas: Mitigate Future Disruptions with an Intelligent Supply Chain. The report is free to access, and we hope you take the time to read it and provide us any feedback you may have.

China Enterprise Blockchain

China’s Blockchain Network should rattle our cages

Oracle, SAP & IBM all have impressive Blockchain credentials; within those organizations, there are people with vision and ambition. But we need that excitement to be reflected if not driven at a higher level within society. Change is on the horizon like it or not; the question is whether we will lead the change or if we are going to get dragged along unwillingly.
