Rishidot Research is a three months old startup but we are already growing. Yup, I call it a startup because I am running this analyst firm in a startup mode, full of ideas, nimble, passion to disrupt the space and other startup emotional buzzwords one can think of. Even though #clouderati community and many others who are connected with me on Twitter know about this news, I think it is time I make this official in this blog.
Rishidot Research is having two new additions to the team, Lori MacVittie and Jocelyn DeGance Graham. Lori is well known in the industry for her great insights on cloud infrastructure landscape and beyond. Her blog posts are some of the most insightful posts ever written in the space and I have greatly benefitted from her knowledge. I am excited beyond words to have her part of Rishidot Research and I am sure our clients will immensely benefit from her expertise. For now, she is going to continue with her gig at F5 Networks as she slowly transitions into the analyst role completely. She will stay out of any research where there is a conflict of interest with them. She shares Rishidot’s belief on transparency and she will add disclosures wherever appropriate. I once again welcome Lori to our team and looking forward to our collaboration on research topics of mutual interests.
I know Jocelyn for almost two years now from the time she was at Grails Research and I strongly feel that her expertise in market research will aid the research team in a big way. She is going to wear multiple hats at Rishidot Research (don’t people wear multiple hats in a startup?) from helping the research team collect, analyze and make sense of market data to business development to sales. Her multi-faceted experience is going to immensely help this young research firm and I am both excited and confident about our company’s future. I once again welcome Jocelyn to the team and looking forward to working with her scaling the organization in the coming years.
It is a great start for a young company and we are already planning our agenda for the next two quarters. Watch this space for more information.
