itmWEB Research


Viewpoints and Research



Our research projects are focused on predictive research - forecasting what IT departments will be doing and how they will be doing it in three to five years. The reports are published in a "how to" format with frameworks, guidelines, and maturity models for immediate application within an enterprise.


Presented below are some snapshots of our latest business and technology research projects. Most past results are now in the form of either a summarized report or a presentation.


We also web publish our viewpoints regularly through Techweekly.com - see the link at the left. We also send out a free monthly summary of our current viewpoints and new research findings to our email subscribers - use the box at the bottom of this page to sign-up - it is managed through Mail Chimp.  


Contact us if you have an interest in any of these projects or findings. See our Speakers page if your company, event, or retreat audience would like a presentation on any of these topics.

                        Our Research Methodology                           

Participation in any of our research efforts welcome. We conduct sixty day time-boxed studies. We start by aggregating existing data from trusted research and academic sources in order to begin from a existing viewpoint.  We then identify deeper target topic study areas of interest to mid-sized organizations. Our findings are then derived from this process.


Most information is collected through confidential surveys (usually using Mail Chimp and Survey Monkey) - or in a few cases through conference calls with our research team. Participation is free and all results are always shared with the participating respondents.


Generally each research team is comprised of an associate from itmWEB, a subject matter affiliate representative, and a researcher from one of our university partners. The published results are then shared with each research organization for final distribution or academic publication. 


Contact us if you want to be on our new research project announcements. We regularly send new research findings and announcements to existing contacts at no cost.
