From the CEO

It's late October, so let me guess: You're scrambling to finish up 2012 action items. You're trying to put out Q4 fires before they get out of hand. You're also looking toward 2013 and beyond, thinking about your long-term strategies, and crafting a story around the resources you'll need to get your job done. It's a crazy time.

In a sense, the fourth quarter puts a spotlight on the balancing act that most of us perform throughout the year. We have tactical decisions to make, programs to execute, and short-term productivity measures to satisfy. We are also on a never-ending quest for the perfect strategy to meet our long-term goals.

The conflict between these two forces, long term and short term, is what makes life "interesting."

At Celent, we've done a lot of work in 2012 to make sure that we can add value on both sides of this equation. Our in-depth trend and vendor reports provide a great reality check on your current approaches and tactics. Want examples? Click here to download our Q4 report listing. On the strategic side, our coverage of Creative Disruption, innovation, and emerging technologies is designed to support sound, long-term thinking. We also extend the research with advisory services and consulting, led by our seasoned analyst team.

Please let us know how we can help make your Q4 productive (and interesting as well, but in the best possible sense).

Craig Weber
