Our discussions are still at a strategic level – we aren’t ‘in the weeds”. But we don’t simply “skim the surface”. The length and the depth of the discussion may go beyond what you are used to in typical internet videos. So I’ve broken them up into bit sized chunks at about 6 minutes each. Grab a cup of coffee. Close the door and let some of Gartner’s leading analysts bring you up to date on key issues.
