Tim Sheedy

Sr Analyst serving CIOs

Based in Sydney, Australia, Tim helps business and IT leaders across Asia Pacific drive better customer outcomes using technology. He helps clients focus on business technology (BT) and identifies opportunities to drive real business outcomes through the use of BT. In the age of the customer, companies that embrace the right disruptive technologies are better positioned to meet their customers' needs in that time of need — Tim's role is to help clients set their technology strategy and embrace the digital disruption.

His main focus is mobile — a technology driving significant disruption across all industries and all geographies. Tim helps companies in Asia Pacific develop better mobile outcomes for their customers. With a focus across the mobile value-chain — from internal employee developments to external customer or partner-facing services — he educates, informs, and guides clients on mobile decisions. Tim is working with many clients across retail, travel, banking, insurance, construction and engineering, consumer packaged goods (CPG), healthcare, and more to advise and guide the development of their mobile strategies.

Previous Work Experience

Tim comes to Forrester with more than 10 years of ICT analyst experience with ICT vendors and IT research providers. Most recently, he was the research director of IT solutions at IDC in Australia, where he assisted ICT vendors in designing solutions to better fit market requirements and assisted user clients with their strategies to improve the effectiveness of their IT functions. In this role, he developed a reputation as a respected and sought-after industry analyst and an entertaining and informative public speaker on many of the key trends in the IT market.

Prior to this role, Tim worked with Hutchison 3G as an analyst, helping to launch and optimize its direct sales channels and developing strategies to increase the use of non-voice products on what was at the time, Australia's first high-speed 3G network. He also spent a number of years working as an independent mobile analyst. In addition, he worked for IDC in the UK, managing its European Wireless & Mobile Communications research program.

Tim is a highly regarded industry speaker, presenting regularly to CIOs and senior IT and business audiences at IT conferences in Asia Pacific and across the globe.
