In this segment from the IBM Software Group Connection Summit 2007, James talks with Jerrilyn Glanville, a veteran of IBM Analyst Relations (“AR” for short). They discuss the role of AR, both on the side of the analyst and of executives, some examples of different styles and idiosyncrasies of both analysts and execs, and then talk about the changing nature of analysts.
