The Henry Corporation Brings Familiar Experts Back To Support The ITC Industry


What happens when a major market research organisation off-loads most of its senior analysts in EMEA? I’m sure it does its best to run its services with newer researchers. However many industry execs will miss the quality of support, ideas and advice that they once had. In the case of my old company some familiar faces, now independent, are also as eager as ever to provide support. For myself I set up ITCandor in May 2009 and am publishing research and offering my services through this web site.

To help bring potentially lost expertise back to the industry on a wider level Carsten Schmidt launched the Henry Corporation on November 1st 2009. The aim of the organisation is to provide clients with marketing supporting (presentations, consulting and market reports) on the ITC industry in EMEA.

The constitution is a loose grouping of senior executive ‘Henry Fellows’ – currently all ex-IDC analysts with decades of experience in tracking complex markets. Current Fellows include:

  • Anne-Lisa Wang (HAIKKOO) – Software industry, applications, enterprise portals
  • Claus Egge – storage systems, data leakage, cloud based content, green IT, new media types, data security, disaster recovery/BC, server, storage virtualisation
  • Marcel Warmerdam – IT markets, forecasting, market models
  • Martin Hingley (ITCandor) – ITC markets, data centre, cloud computing, CSR, digital explosion, forecasts, market shares
  • Pim Bilderbeek – Telecoms, multimedia, social media, enterprise mobility, unified communications, cloud computing, managed services, data center, and mission critical infrastructure
  • Simone de Bruin (LinkedResearch) – pan-European partnership strategies pan-European partnership strategies in the software/services industry

I can personally vouch for all of these experts, as I worked with them for many years (decades in some cases). It happens that they are also all good friends. I’m very proud to be a fellow myself and pleased that Carsten’s activities will stretch my own activities into Northern Europe and beyond. We have been unshackled from the infrastructure of a large company and able to provide more dynamic support than before.

I encourage those of you in the industry looking to understand and succeed in this industry to contact the Henry Corporation for ideas and support, especially if you’ve been missing something in the last few months. I also encourage other independent analysts to sign up to the Henry Corporation to broaden its appeal even further.

If you have any questions on my participation please contact me via email or by posting a comment on this article.
