Linthicum Recognized as Leading Technology Specialist in Cloud Space

BOSTON, MA – August 3, 2016 – Cloud Technology Partners (CTP), the premier cloud services and software company for enterprises moving to cloud, announced today Apollo Research has named Senior Vice President, David Linthicum, the #1 industry analyst influencer, in the Technology Specialists category.

Author of the Apollo Research report and the company’s Managing Director, Richard Laven, stated, “The job of the tech analyst varies enormously from analyst to analyst but essentially their role is to be expert in their chosen marketplace, understand the competitive landscape and have a view, backed up by credible evidence, on which vendors are getting it right and which are not doing so well. It’s their job to compare the technologies, services, solutions and products offered by the vendors and assess them.” He further stated, “Few in the technology world are as influential as the industry analysts… The question is: who influences the industry analyst?”

According to the Apollo report, which takes an in-depth look at the people, media and organizations that most influence industry analysts, Linthicum is viewed as one of the world’s foremost thought leaders on cloud computing. He tops Apollo’s list above Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon and Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate of Splunk. (The top 30 technology specialists and the companies they work for are outlined below.)

“The role of industry thought leaders is to provide a real and open dialog as to how to leverage technology correctly for any purpose,” said Linthicum. “I’ve always focused on providing practical advice on how to leverage cloud computing technology correctly and effectively. It’s an honor to be ranked number one in this report, and I as well as Cloud Technology Partners, will continue to provide guidance that allows our clients and followers to be successful the first time with their cloud initiatives.” ​
