From Thomas DelVecchio, Director of Enterprise Technology Research (ETR):
Enterprise Technology Research is a purpose-driven, next-generation research model that connects CIOs and senior-level IT professionals with each other, as well as with select institutional technology investors, for the purpose of conducting real-time research for critical decision-making and building mutually beneficial relationships.
Enterprise Technology Research utilizes tactical, high-velocity surveys via pervasive social media techniques, in addition to electronic messaging, to optimize the participation process as well as the turnaround of results for the participants. This real-time proprietary research provides IT executives and their organizations with an extremely valuable peer benchmarking tool and enables them to make informed decisions in a very timely manner.
In addition to the proprietary research that we conduct, Enterprise Technology Research enables the IT executives who comprise its membership base to conduct custom surveys among themselves to obtain, for example, peer-to-peer intelligence about vendor selection.
Enterprise Technology Research also provides its members with online professional networking (via social-networking connections and managed introductions). Enterprise Technology Research's Web-based interactive meeting place offers a platform where members can instanteously seek out and network in a highly specific fashion, among a large global community of enterprise technology end users, to exchange ideas and experiential learning. Enterprise Technology Research members can interact with their peers to solve critical business problems, remain current about emerging trends, learn about the newest technology implementations, discuss common challenges, share IT best practices, provide and receive mentoring, uncover business leads, and advance their careers -- in real time.
The CIOs and senior-level IT professionals who comprise Enterprise Technology Research are from over 20 countries and have high-level domain expertise and titles across a broad spectrum of key enterprise technology sectors -- including, but not limited to: Storage, Server, Software, Security, Networking, Telecommunications, and Outsourcing. Enterprise Technology Research intentionally establishes an industry-weighted end-user mix so as to replicate the S&P 500 Index industry mix. Further, Enterprise Technology Research includes government, education, and nonprofit industry verticals, in addition to being weighted globally, thus ensuring a comprehensive view of end-user demand and sentiment.
