Where in world is Peter Kim? Now we know. Today is Forrester analyst Peter Kim’s (blog, Twitter handle) last day. In Now’s the time, the time is now, Peter gives an update on what is next.

Illuminata is rolling out a new website. Put on your “official analyst hat” and let them know what you think.

Macehiter Ward-Dutton (MWD) has launched a new Collaboration Service.
