Datamonitor – Corporate Announcements: After the recent purchase of META by Gartner, Datamonitor (which has bought Computerwire) announced the purchase of Butler Group. Strategically, this is interesting. While Datamonitor is closer to Computerwire’s core business, Butler is a little further away. It is more focussed and more reliant on a cadre of top managers.
