CxO of the Week: Analyst Daniel Burrus, CEO of Burrus Research

The world needs an analyst. In order to fully understand the nature of tech and computer science, it is probably a good idea to listen to experts. What’s more is we need to understand what’s around the corner.

Daniel Burrus takes the role of analyst to the next level. He’s more than an analyst, an expert and a business advisor; he’s a futurist.

Unusual Beginnings

Following his graduation from the University of Wisconsin, Burrus started his career as a biology and physics teacher. Burrus was no run-of-the-mill teacher; he was nominated for the Educator of the Year during his first year of teaching.

In 1978, Burrus founded his first of many companies to come. His research into the tech industry consequently led him to become one of the experts in the field.

Analyst or Futurist?

Some people think that nobody could have predicted the future of tech. Who could tell that by the mid-90s most classrooms would have PCs? Who could have predicted that smart phones would become our main personal computers by 2010?

Burrus could. In fact, Burrus accurately predicts nearly every major technological leap. In the 1980s, Burrus became the first and only futurist to predict the twenty technologies that would fundamentally change the tech business landscape.
