Podcasting and blogging take IT industry analysts to a new level of service

Summary:We bat around the relevancy of SCA, sort out Vista's actual year of meaningful arrival, and ponder the trajectory to legacy of enterprise Java.

Some kind words from Wind River's CMO John Bruggeman highlight a growing trend around IT industry analysts reaching new audiences and better serving their traditional audiences through RSS-enabled blogging and podcasting. As I've said before, real-time analysis via free syndication is gaining quite a bit of attention.

An example, obviously is this blog, dear reader, but please peruse further evidence within my most recent BriefingsDirect informational podcast. Joining me are other well-spoken independent IT industry analysts: Neil Ward-Dutton and Neil Macehiter, co-founders of UK-based advisory firm Macehiter Ward-Dutton. These seasoned analysts also grok the new paradigm of analysis delivery offered through RSS publishing and the global reach of the blogosphere and iTunes-arranged podcast syndication.

In this year-in-review BriefingsDirect episode, the blokes at Macehiter Ward-Dutton join your's truly to bat around the relevancy of SCA, sort out Vista's actual year of meaningful arrival, and ponder the trajectory to legacy of enterprise Java. Good stuff cheap.

If you're a vendor or enterprise accustomed to spending more than five figures to tap into the insights and forecasts of leading IT industry analysts, have a try at what's available now via B2B informational podcasting. I certainly look forward to the next IT trends mash up with the Neils of Macehiter Ward-Dutton. Cheers, gents.
