Ventana Research is a trusted research brand in how business and technology align to drive better performance in business today. As organizations shift from transactional computing and the associated infrastructure to a more strategically aligned set of systems and processes, our body of research and knowledge establishes us as well positioned to lead this transition. Without this foundation, guidance on the use of technology cannot be optimized to satisfy the burgeoning expectations of executive management. The approach still embraced today by existing IT analyst firms does not allow them to deliver advice to the right level of depth that is relevant to today’s markets, with the significant current merger and acquisition activity, and the paralytic confusion in the buyer community.
Ventana Research stands out in its laser-sharp focus and its passion and determination to help organizations reach their full potential. Our dedication to high quality research benchmarks and Value Indexes through our research methodology generating broad scope of quality types of research notes, white papers and webinars. Our focus is to help organizations use business technology effectively to manage performance makes the firm one of the most valuable resources available to business and IT management seeking competitive advantage and superior performance.
