Introducing #ThoughtLeaderThursday – Mint Jutras
As part of Amalgam Insights’ research process, we also keep track of the wide array of analysts, consultants, and thought leaders who are most relevant across our practice areas. Beyond the most well-known firms, such as the likes of Gartner, Forrester, and IDC, there are a wide array of bespoke and custom firms that conduct world-class work. To help provide context on how Amalgam Insights looks at our peers, partners, and competitors and to help technology buyers make better decisions, Amalgam profiles a firm or thought leader each Thursday to provide guidance on those who we think of as influential and innovative thought leaders.
First up in this series is Mint Jutras, a firm that Amalgam Insights greatly respects in the Enterprise Applications market.
Who They Are
Mint Jutras is an independent research and advisory firm led by Cindy Jutras, the President and chief analyst of the firm. Mint Jutras covers the business benefits of technology and conducts primary research and analysis across ERP and related enterprise applications including enterprise performance management, manufacturing solutions, and accounting as well as digital transformation, business customization, and strategic planning. Mint Jutras provides speaking, writing, and research capabilities to the enterprise applications markets.
Why You Should Read Them
Mint Jutras brings deep experience across pricing, licensing, product development, and a variety of industries. In addition, her primary ERP survey provides deep insight into the current state of ERP, including emerging trends and data points that either confirm or contradict market assumptions. Having had the experience of working with Cindy Jutras at the Aberdeen Group and having learned some of the intricacies of survey-based research from her, I can attest to the detail and thought of the survey process that Mint Jutras has put into each annual survey.
Mint Jutras also provides deep experience from Cindy Jutras’ career that spans the history of Enterprise Resource Planning as a core enterprise system. This experience is the basis of the context that Mint Jutras brings into its research. This combination of experience and data makes Mint Jutras a must-read firm for any ERP vendor or for any business strategist seeking to augment, update, or replace their ERP environments.
Potential For Amalgam Insights to Work With Mint Jutras
Amalgam Insights and Mint Jutras share a Director of Business Development, Lisa Lincoln and our respect for Mint Jutras should be obvious. However, our coverage areas only overlap in the areas of accounting and enterprise performance management, which limits our potential to work together. That said, it’s fair to say that Amalgam would love to work with Mint Jutras if the potential for a joint project came up.
