TechWeb membership (registration) is required to access InformationWeek Analytics. Premium reports can be purchased on the site now, and by subscription in the near future.

Recognizing the trust, value and respect IT professionals place on peer perspective, InformationWeek Analytics content is provided by an analyst team that includes a fusion of practicing senior IT professionals and InformationWeek's world-class editors. This combination of quantitative research for IT decision-makers and real-world analysis by practicing IT professionals has made InformationWeek Analytics the premier source for expert advice on how enterprises can adopt the most critical technologies to achieve business goals.

"Amazing report," says one reader of our recent Analytics research report on mainframes. "I can't believe you hit all the points you did ... bravo, I have had this job for three years, and your summary/analysis is remarkable."

"IT managers and CIOs need actionable, practical information to make smart buying decisions," says Art Wittmann, Managing Director of InformationWeek Analytics. "The theoretical, reactive information they get from typical analysts just doesn't cut it anymore. The new Analytics site delivers insights from practicing IT professionals. This peer-analyst approach is what IT decision-makers are constantly requesting."

"InformationWeek continues to put the IT decision-maker at the center of everything we do, and InformationWeek Analytics is a strategic part of our content delivery strategy," says John Siefert, Senior Vice President and Group Publisher of the InformationWeek Business Technology Network. "Our investment in this new site reflects the tremendous growth we've seen in our Analytics business and will serve to further enable advances for this business."

InformationWeek Analytics also offers technology marketers fully integrated marketing communications programs to engage and activate volume buyers of their products and services. Underwriters of premium content will enjoy the contextual relevancy of their message. TechWeb's performance marketing programs scale from thought leadership and editorial alignment to highly targeted lead-generation focused on specific topics and technologies.
