BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Dec 1, 2015) - Aberdeen Group, the market leader for technology industry data, predictive analytics and premium content, is excited to announce Charlie Allieri as the business's new Chief Data Officer and Managing Director of the San Diego office. He will manage the company's data and analytics business.

Starting first as a practitioner and then as an entrepreneur, Charlie's near 25-year career has been focused on B2B technology marketing, combining the latest in computing techniques with data to drive insights and performance. Most recently, Charlie co-founded iLantern in 2005, whose key assets were acquired by Avention in 2014. iLantern is a leading provider of dynamic event data and customizable trigger solutions.
