IDC Promotes Michael Melenovsky to Senior Vice President

FRAMINGHAM, MA – AUGUST 2, 2000 – IDC, the world's leading provider of intelligence on the IT industry, today announced the promotion of Michael Melenovsky to senior vice president, Worldwide Services research. Melenovsky has been with IDC for eight years. With his guidance, IDC has become the number-one provider of IT services research worldwide.


"Despite the fragmentation and local nature of the services industry, IDC Services analysts speak with a single voice and present a single face to clients as a result of Mike's foresight and management," said Kirk Campbell, president and CEO of IDC. "As a result of his leadership, IDC now sets the standard for thought leadership in services research and is the name brand for services analysis and forecasting."

Melenovsky’s efforts have strengthened IDC's Services research not only in the United States but worldwide. He has hired and trained several analysts in the United States who now work in IDC's international offices in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Sao Paulo.

During the time that Melenovsky has led IDC's Services research, the industry has transformed from break-fix maintenance to outsourcing and systems integration and most recently to business process outsourcing and ebusiness services. Under Melenovsky's guidance, IDC has been able not only to keep up with the changes, but also to predict they were going to occur.

Melenovsky received an associate and bachelor's degrees from Purdue University and studied for his MBA at the University of Hartford. Before joining IDC, he worked for a management consulting firm, where his engagements included understanding end-user critical service expectations, developing metrics for measuring customer satisfaction, providing strategy on where to target and prioritize improvement efforts, and establishing benchmarks for ongoing customer feedback. This experience has helped him position IDC's Services research as the industry leader.

IDC's Services research covers incubators, information security services, application service providers, Internet service providers, IT education and training, human resources strategies, traditional outsourcing and consulting, and many other areas.
