"It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" is a song by the rock band R.E.M.
No, this hasn’t become a music show – especially given the fact that I can’t carry a tune to save my life! However, the above referenced lyrics are more than appropriate in terms of my interview this afternoon with Source One’s Joe Payne and Bill Dorn.
In what was the third and final segment of a 3-Part series (that will air next week), which focused on the company’s announcement that they had earlier this year created a Supply Chain Center of Excellence, both Payne and Dorn shared their belief that traditional analyst firms' and industry pundits' creditability in the market is waning. Specifically, and being caught between serving cross-purposed agendas, firms such has Gartner continue to fail in terms of delivering sound and unbiased insight into industry trends and vendor capabilities.
This is a segment that you will not want to miss.
