Michael Lock, Aberdeen Group

As a Vice President and Principal Analyst, Michael oversees two main research practice areas at Aberdeen: Business Analytics, and Business Planning & Execution. Between these two areas of coverage, the team conducts cutting edge, user-driven research in some of the most critical and growing areas of the business world including business intelligence (BI), big data, enterprise resource planning (ERP), corporate performance management (CPM), financial management & GRC, and business process management (BPM). Michael’s own research focuses on business analytics and the usage of these vital tools and strategies among a growing base of non-technical, line-of-business decision makers. The research covers emerging trends such as self-service BI, collaborative analytics, operational intelligence, and embedded BI. Michael’s fact-based research explores the end-user’s perspective of business analytics and continually seeks to draw a connection between analytical activity and tangible, repeatable business performance. Michael has spent the bulk of his career on strategic technology issues in both hardware and software environments. Michael spent the first five years of his career at Seranoa Networks, a DS3 Gigabit Ethernet technology solution provider headquartered in the metro-Boston, MA area. At Seranoa, he was responsible for supervising the design and development of new hardware, building and improving supplier relationships as well as coordinating hardware design verification testing and circuit board design. Michael holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Trinity College and an MBA from Babson College.
