About Dave Noble

Prior to establishing Intelligen, Noble was responsible for analyst relations, market intelligence and strategic planning activities for Hewlett-Packard’s enterprise systems business, covering 13 countries in the Asia/Pacific region. During this time, he established HP’s best practice analyst relations program, elevated the role of market intelligence in the business, and developed more effective internal and external market data analysis processes. He also warned HP executives to prepare for the pending 2001 server market downturn several months before mainstream industry analysts.
Noble joined HP after 11 years in senior analyst, sales and management roles at IDC Australia, a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading IT market research firms. During this time, he developed hands-on experience managing large and small research projects, streamlined research processes and helped shape IDC’s business strategy in Australia and Asia.
