In the fast paced and somewhat chaotic world of Information Technology (IT), it can be very challenging to find the sound information needed to enable the effective use of IT resources and support strategic decision making. Sorting through the volume and reliability of the data available is a significant undertaking. How do you separate vendor hype from reality? How do you manage the inherent risks of technology decisions? Who are the emerging leaders in technology and will they survive?
One key tool available to IT professionals is the use of an IT research and advisory service. There are a couple of services available in this space and the ITS has retained Gartner Inc. as our service provider. Gartner was chosen for two key reasons. First, Gartner's position in the market place, and second, for the Web delivery of research materials, which are available to the RIT community. Access to services like Gartner is typically limited to a small group of individuals in a company or university. RIT is fortunate to have the new Gartner IntraWeb service available to the entire RIT community.
