“Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream.” – Debby Boone
How did it all begin? And Why As Disruptive As IT Gets?
Dreamt, founded and seeded by our Chief Analyst, Sanchit Vir Gogia, As Disruptive As IT Gets started in the midst of crossfire and change. Crossfire was between his heart and mind. While his heart said, believe and get started, the mind said, experiment first and then plunge. And the need for Change was the flavour of the season. This gave enough and more reasons for our Chief Analyst to disrupt the status quo in the analyst world and experiment with an independent source of opinions, perspectives and guidance for IT Decision Makers. Hence the birth of As Disruptive As IT Gets.
How has the journey been so far?
The website was well received since the start – In 30 days of existence, the website had received 1800 views from 40 countries. And within three months, we had touched over 50 countries. This was the tipping point and what gave confidence to our Chief Analyst to set out on the entrepreneurial journey. Hence, Greyhound Research was born.
Over time the insights portal has grown to become the backbone of opinions, perspectives and actionable guidance for IT Decision Makers on a range of Digital Transformation topics.
As Disruptive As IT Gets has been ranked #10 in top 20 most influential writers, publications, pioneers and tech Zen masters across the globe in 2014. The portal was also ranked as world’s #30 Must-Read IT Insights Portal by BizTech in 2013.
Today, we are read by 100,000+ CxOs and 10 million consumers in over 125 countries. But this is not all. Read below for more.
