The Open Source analysis wiki just launched

James MCGovern speaking with Raven Zachary , from The 451 Group, got the idea to ask other analyst firms to join him to collaboratively work on the notion of an open source industry analysis guide.

In his post he reported some issues to be addressed, Barbara French from Tekrati also joined the informal community to develop a guide to working with industry analyst firms using open source licensing / analysis as part of their business model. So did James McGovern who said that the open source analysis wiki aims to answer some questions like:

  • what is open source analysis?
  • Why is it different from traditional industry analyst models?
  • How do we best engage with open source analysts?

I believe is a very good start, the inter-firms collaboration works fine!
