The companies in leadership positions in the coming decade will be those that have focused their business and IT investments to improve business processes and performance. Ventana Research's Assessment and Benchmark Services enables companies to focus their business and IT investments to improve performance and gain competitive advantage. Business technology is a critical investment and a market delineator that enables an organization to perform better and achieve its objectives more easily. But selecting and deploying technology is challenging. IT resources are stretched. Vendors and options are proliferating at a time when IT departments are trying to consolidate their portfolios. To turn these challenges into opportunities, businesses and IT buyers must ensure they get the maximum return on the time and money they invest in technology. And to do this, they must have a solid strategy that works with the right technology.

Ventana Research can help. We are the leading business technology research and advisory services firm. Our research analysts have extensive experience and do in-depth research into business and technology trends, vendor solutions and business and IT best practices. We provide your team with objective advice and assessments that will help you create a solid roadmap that addresses both business and technology issues.
