Bye New Age Disruption. Hey Crisp Research!

I have already announced it on my blog at I will end my work at New Age Disruption and start at the consulting and analyst firm Crisp Research as a senior analyst, where I will be responsible for the areas of cloud computing and IT infrastructures. Which impact will this have on CloudUser?

More authors, more content, more opinions

As part of joining Crisp Research I will incorporate CloudUser with the company. So I will no longer be acting as a sole author, but also other analysts publish their opinions and market assessments. First, this will be the two Managing Director and Senior Analysts Dr. Carlo Velten and Steve Janata, who in the past, have made a lots of furor within the German vendor landscape with their cloud vendor benchmarks. Thus, on CloudUser more content will be find on the topics of cloud computing, IT infrastructure and IT strategies in the future.

Furthermore, the design of the blog will change over time to be aligned with the CI from Crisp Research.

More information can be found at “Hello Crisp Research! Off to new challenges.” and in the official Crisp Research press release.
