Research group 451 Research announced on Friday that industry experts Al Sadowski and Liam Eagle have joined the 451 Research team.
The appointments follow recent acquisitions by 451 Group, including strategy, advisory and research firm Applied Velocity Labs and mobile research firm Yankee Group.
With the newly appointed Sadowski and Eagle, Internet infrastructure services research team is able to expand the scope and depth of its analysis.
For more than 20 years, Sadowski has served in management roles of software development, network operations, product development and product management at AT&T, Global Crossing and Level 3 Communications.
He led global teams that developed customer care applications, defined cloud strategies, managed colocation product portfolios, and launched multiple network-based managed services for the enterprise sector.
Eagle covers managed hosting, cloud, and mass-market hosting for the Internet Infrastructure Services practice.
During his tenure at the WHIR, he has seen many of the transformative trends shaping the industry, including the emergence of virtualization and cloud technologies, and the development of the partner ecosystem that underpins the hosting market.
Eagle also served as co-chair of HostingCon for two years, where he built the educational program for the industry conference and trade show.
“Al and Liam bring a wealth of experience, insight, and expertise to the Internet Infrastructure Services practice,” said Simon Carruthers, chief operating officer at 451 Research. “With their knowledge of cloud and hosting markets – and their long-standing involvement in the industry – they are strong and welcome additions to the 451 Research team.”
