Strategies, L.L.C. was founded in August 2005 by Dr. David Hunter as a research consultancy specializing in strategic planning information for Microsoft technologies based on years of
experience in dealing with Microsoft as both a competitor and partner.
David Hunter, Managing Partner of Hunter Strategies, L.L.C.,
retired from IBM in 2005 after a career spanning IBM's Research
division, membership in the IBM Academy of Technology, and
various development roles in both hardware and software
mainframes, disk storage, personal computers, multimedia,
workstations, and servers as well as IBM's enterprise software
products. This latter included a stint as Windows 2000 System
Manager when he lead the team that helped bring IBM's middleware
to world class status on Microsoft server platforms. In recent
years, Dr. Hunter worked as an internal IBM software liaison for
Microsoft technologies and served as the interface between
Microsoft and IBM software development teams, as well as taking
a broader corporate role as a Microsoft technology expert.
Hunter's experience made him keenly aware of the need for
timely, concise, and accurate strategic planning information on
Microsoft technologies for independent software vendors,
original equipment manufacturers, and IT service providers.
Hunter Strategies was formed to meet that need.
