Here is the official statement that Yankee Group provided SageCircle on 8/26/08:
“Yankee Group is making changes to better align the company for success. Known as the “global connectivity experts, we are uniquely focused on the evolution of Anywhere, and we chart the technology effect that Anywhere computing and “ubiquitous connectivity” has on networks, consumers and enterprises.
We’re now tightening our research focus even more to be 100% focused on Anywhere topics. As part of this re-alignment, there are some general topics that we will not be focusing on going forward, and as a result, some of our teams have been realigned as well. We regret that some of our talented colleagues will not be with us going forward. We remain committed to delivering on the high level of quality research and consulting that our clients have come to trust from the Yankee Group for nearly 40 years.”
Shirley Macbeth, VP – Marketing and Communications, Yankee Group
