STKI Summit 2010

On March 16th I participated in the STKI summit by the local analysts company STKI.

The company headed by Dr. Jimmy Schwarzkopf is focused on the Israeli market. The theme of this year conference was: Finding the Right Balance: Standardize vs. Innovate.

Presentations were based on an Israeli market survey performed by the company.

The company's analysts' presentations topics were Infrastructure Trends, Applications Trends, Office of the CIO trends and Infrastructure Services Trends, followed by wrap-up IT Trends presentation by Jimmy.

The second topic summed up the surrey's results and was limited to the Israeli market. The local companies in each category (e.g. Storage Hardware, Integration Software), were ranked by Revenue and Client's Mind Share.

I was surprised to find myself appearing in 11th place in the Infrastructure related Consulting/Analysts.
