Forrester is looking for a new Analyst to join the modern service delivery area (#2 above), to focus on the "monitoring" and analytics components of operations and of the DevOps lifecycle (concentrating on areas like application performance management (APM), cognitive and AI for intelligent operations, and the evolution of monitoring).

The Analyst will research concepts, frameworks, technologies, best practices, organizational and business implications of monitoring and analytics for modern service delivery, application performance, and operations.

Expand "monitoring" beyond pervasive but obsolete interpretations to a whole new level of value. * Write/create approximately 10 reports and workbooks per year and use social media to develop visibility for your research and Forrester and contribute to Forrester client communities. * Consult with clients to apply Forrester's research in the context of their specific business environment, and to help solve their problems through inquiry and advisory. * Present at Forrester-sponsored and industry-related events and deliver client webinars. * Establish an industry presence as an influential speaker and thinker; build relationships with senior I&O professionals and vendor executives, CTOs, and CIOs, as well as with the journalists who cover the sector; and participate in vendor briefings and field press inquiries as necessary.
