Bloor research has the story nailed


When I was in London last month on the App Vision World Tour I met with David Norfolk of Bloor Research. David and I have met many times over the years and I do enjoy sparring with him. He has great insight and is really well connected in the tech community and he has a wealth of real world experience.

In the interview he was eager to hear about how Serena saw the future and how we were executing against that. In his excellent blog post from yesterday he captured perfectly the strong messaging and vision that is driving Serena.

With great new products and a host of successful customers already implemented there is a renewed sense of energy and excitement in the corporation. And with some very high profile wins against some very well funded competition Serena continues to demonstrate its technology leadership.

Looking forward to our next bout David!
