Software Defined Talk: On Being an Analyst
In this new episode of the Software Define Talk podcast, we discuss my life as an analyst and strategist (part 2 of a series.) SDT regular Matt Ray is off in Australia, so it’s just Brandon Whichard and myself. We also discuss: what IT analyst work on; working with marketers that have poor, nothing new material; learning how to function inside a large company in the executive suite; M&A and investment bankers, getting shit done in large companies (it’s always slow,) like Project Sputnik.
