The Value of Custom Research to IT Executives
In today’s world, organizations live and die by their data. According to 2016 PWC research, companies that prioritize data as a decision-maker over “intuition” are three times more likely to see a strong improvement in their overall decision making. But it’s not enough to simply have the data; you need to know how to interpret and utilize it.
Senior IT executives and their teams can access a wealth of available data and analytics, but it may not be the right type of data. Broad market trends can highlight large, global patterns, but details specific to your organization may not always be represented. Interpreting the data is as important as gathering it. Without proper interpretation, you may waste precious time and resources with little ROI. By leveraging the Advanced Practices Council, along with fellow members and colleagues, you gain access to independent researchers who have the resources, experience, independence, and time to gather data and help you interpret the data for your specific needs.
According to the Info-Tech Research Group, clients who employ outside research resources see a vast improvement in ROI: on average over $20,000 and 14 days saved.
Imagine what you can offer your company by gaining the intelligence and data from research studies of the Advanced Practices Council, which are directed by you and your fellow members, looking to achieve the outcomes and results that custom research delivers.
