    How about not fostering that parasite Oops! Analyst community that takes information from one place and packages it and sells to another person. If the analysts were as visionary as they seem to project themselves they would be running some business and not working for some company like Gartner and coming up with jokes like Magic Quadrant.

    I really do not see any earth shattering analysis done by most people. The same goes for bloggers who call themselves influencers.
