I believe technology can be exploited to greater levels than we have allowed. We are constrained by 20th century business models and ideas. Collectively, we need to move past technology for the sake of technology and truly focus on moving markets beyond the status quo!

The Results Are In!!!
Remember a couple of months ago we put out a call to Business Analysts to take our survey on the role of the BA. Well, the results are in! The full report – voke Market SnapshotTM Report: The Role of the Business Analyst is available to subscribers at www.vokestream.com.

Here are a couple of nuggets to whet your appetite:
- 91% of survey participants say they use ineffective tools to define requirements
- 58% of participants say their applications “only sometimes” or “never” meet the needs of the user

We will be speaking in more detail about the report and how business analysts can enhance their roles in a webinar on Thursday, August 21 2008 at 2:00 PM Eastern / 11:00 AM Pacific. Join voke, Blueprint, and HP Software to find out the keys to business analyst success. Register here.

In other news, we launched the voke Market Mover ArrayTM Chart where we rank the leaders of the application lifecycle market based on technology leadership and market leadership. The voke Market Mover Array is the one and only independent analytical source for information on application lifecycle vendors.

As a corollary to the voke Market Mover Array, we also launched the definitive research on global lifecycle transformation. The global lifecycle transformation piece is being lauded as a roadmap to achieving business success by embracing the lifecycle.

We at voke have had a busy and productive summer, so check out our newly updated Web 2.0 platform for our research at www.vokestream.com. By subscribing you can read all about business analysts, the application lifecycle market and more.
