About This Role:
Analysts conduct innovative research and deliver advice through written reports, consulting, client inquiries, webinars, and event speeches. Forrester’s infrastructure & operations (I&O) research team advises clients responsible for three principal areas: 1) infrastructure + service design (including cloud computing and software-defined infrastructure); 2) service delivery (including operational excellence, DevOps, service brokering, analytics, and automation); and 3) edge + employee experience (including IoT, mobile, and the future of work). Forrester is looking for a new Senior Analyst to join the service delivery area (#2 above), to focus on the “operate” components of DevOps (meaning production processes like incident, change, and problem management), operational excellence overall, and DevSecOps.
The Senior Analyst writes to, presents to, and advises I&O professionals as well as clients in other roles, such as CIOs, CTOs, enterprise architects, and security & risk professionals. The Senior Analyst will research concepts, frameworks, technologies, best practices, and business implications of the “operate” components of DevOps, operational excellence, and DevSecOps. The Senior Analyst will develop innovative thinking on DevOps that challenges the status quo, and will be curious about new and emerging trends, and comfortable advising C-Level clients.
Understanding of what Forrester clients require to be successful as I&O professionals, with a focus on how they deliver an optimum experience with automation, infrastructure, and cloud services.
