Business Background

  Originally formed in 1978, Annex Research has become a storehouse of vital information on the information technology industry. Djurdjevic's opinions are often quoted by major U.S. and international media, such as the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the CNN, the MSNBC/CNBC, the Financial Times (London), the USA TODAY, the Times of London, the Economist, the Business Week... - to mention some.

The FORTUNE magazine, for example, described his analysis of IBM as "prescient," and Annex Research as a "respected consulting firm." The Computer Weekly of London called Djurdjevic "Father of Knowledge" in one personal profile, and the "Giant Killer" in another one (the latter was in reference to the role Djurdjevic's critical editorials played in the former IBM chairman's, John Akers', eventual dismissal). The Enterprise Systems Journal of New York said he was "the dean of a select community of professionals called IBM Watchers." The New York-based Information Week ran an article on him headlined "Watching Those Who Watch IBM." The Canadian national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, did a feature on Djurdjevic's extensive travels around the world - "Traveler jumps high-tech hurdles." Last but not least, the late IBM chairman, Tom Watson, Jr., publicly acknowledged Djurdjevic's contribution to his 1990 bestseller.
