From the Senior Vice President

I wanted to share a couple of important announcements. We recently welcomed two new analysts to our team: Analyst Alexander Camargo, who is based in New York, and Senior Analyst Phillip Silitschanu, based in our Boston office. We are proud to have these additions to our Securities & Investments team.

At Celent, we're bringing new tools to help our clients make informed technology decisions. As a refinement to our ABCD Vendor View research, we've introduced the XCelent Awards, which you can see an example of in our recent report, Client Reporting Tools, by Isabella Fonseca and Alexander Camargo.

Please contact Nick Bockh at or +46.8.650.4401 if you have any questions about the XCelent Awards or if you would like to schedule an introductory call with one of our new analysts.

Best regards,

Mayiz Habbal, PhD
