A message from Jamie Lewis

A Message from Jamie Lewis, CEO, Burton Group


As we kick off 2010, I’m thrilled to announce that Burton Group has been acquired by Gartner, Inc., the world’s leading information technology research and advisory firm. Given the importance of this news, I want to make sure that all of our clients understand how this acquisition affects them and the services we provide.


The answer is simple: It won’t.


Gartner acquired us precisely because of what our clients already know to be true: The practical, technically in-depth advice we provide to frontline IT professionals is very different from the strategic services Gartner provides to CIOs and IT leaders. Together, we will offer a complete world-class solution to every level and functional expert within the IT organization.


The majority of our clients currently use Gartner services as well as ours because they see our offerings as highly complementary and best-in-class for the IT roles and functions we both support. Consequently, Gartner will continue to offer IT1 and other Burton Group research services as separate products. Gartner will retain almost all our employees, including 100 percent of our research and consulting staff, so clients will continue to receive the same great value they expect from our company. Gartner also intends to continue our simple, enterprise-wide licensing model that our clients have asked us not to change. Finally, Gartner will increase its investment in our products and services, allowing us to expand our coverage scope to areas many of our clients have asked us to support.


In short, this acquisition will enable us to provide the best, most complete set of IT research and advisory services available. We are excited to be a part of the leading research and advisory firm in our market, and look forward to bringing the benefits of our acquisition to you, our valued clients.


On behalf of everyone at Burton Group, thank you for your continuing support. I look forward to updating you on our progress over the coming months. As always, feel free to contact me directly or any of us at Burton Group if you have any concerns or comments at +1.800.824.9924 (USA) or +1.801.304.8174 (international or direct dial).
