Picture of Tony ByrneTony Byrne oversees all of The Real Story Group's technology streams.

In 2001, Tony founded CMS Watch as a vendor-independent analyst firm that evaluates digital workplace technologies and publishes research comparing different solutions head-to-head.

Prior to 2001, he managed an engineering team at a systems integration firm. He now focuses his own research on Enterprise Community and Collaboration software, SharePoint, Digital Marketing, Enterprise Mobile Applications and Web Content Management.
