Boca Raton, FL, January 23, 2020 — Accelerated Strategies Group (AccelST) has launched with the mission of disrupting the technology analyst market by utilizing the same principles of the open source, free model now prevalent in the greater technology/software market. AccelST will focus on the areas of Digital Transformation, DevOps, Cloud-Native and Cybersecurity.
The last few years have seen a revolution in the go-to-market and consumption of software powered by the cloud, Cloud-Native, DevOps, Agile and similar methodologies. Free, open source software has become the dominant component in most applications today, bringing disruption and change throughout the sales and distribution model. AccelST will use this same model to disrupt the outdated models of publication and distribution of technology analysis information.
“It is amazing to me that even with the triumph of open source business models, the analyst industry has insulated itself from the basic proposition that information and knowledge want to be free,” said Mitchell Ashley, CEO and founder of Accelerated Strategies Group. “We intend to make all of our research, analysis and work open and free to end users. Our consulting and sponsored activities will fully fund our organization.”
Accelerated Strategies Group is a joint venture by Mitchell Ashley, a respected technology industry veteran, and MediaOps Inc., the company behind DevOps.com, Security Boulevard, Container Journal and Digital Anarchist and co-founders of the DevOps Institute. “Working with Mitchell is amazing because he is consistently on the forefront of changes we see in our target markets—he walks the walk and talks the talk,” said Alan Shimel, CEO and founder of MediaOps. “Adding key industry and community leaders to the lineup really positions Accelerated Strategies Group as a firm that understands today’s markets and can help others with their transformations.”
