Tech Research

HP exec asks for input on the issue of whether indie tech research houses should committ to standards of transparency, neutrality, governance and liability.

David Gee, an exec at HP, is asking over at his blog for input on some thoughts he's mulling over about tech research.

Anyone in the tech industry knows the influence that research houses can have in determining perspectives--whether companies are buying tech, what kind, who is winning, who is losing.

So Gee is asking for people's views on whether this industry, like Wall Street analysts, should have "standards for transparency, neutrality, governance and liability."

Of course, one question to bring up in this kind of discussion might be what influence companies like HP, which buy the research, have in determining its direction. Anyway, if you have some thoughts on this, the door at Gee's blog is open.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
