Thought Leadership

The Hurwitz & Associates senior leadership team provides thoughtful analysis of emerging trends and how they impact customers.  The Hurwitz team provides insights and innovative thinking that helps our clients to understand the implication of emerging and innovative approaches often ahead of the market.

For example, our team provided guidance regarding issues around anti-virus software.  We were among the first to explain to management the value of a Service Oriented Architecture through our best selling book, Service Oriented Architectures for Dummies.  Because of our knowledge and insight, we provide actionable leadership to both suppliers and consumers of important software technologies.

Our team takes a holistic view of an emerging technology and puts in into perspective both in terms of its likelihood of success and its value to customers. We look at how IT vendor’s offerings of software, hardware, storage, and services enable business innovation and growth in business productivity and profitability. Our focus is on best practices and how organizations use technology to improve their relationships with customers, partners, and suppliers.

An extensive selection of our thought leadership articles, papers, and reports published as a result of our independent primary research and client engagements are available for download from this website. Our Analysts are regularly engaged in speaking engagements and webinars. You will find listings and downloads of speeches available as well.
