The local branch of the global IT research organisation IDC has launched a Website which it hopes will make it easier for everyone in the industry to get access to its research.
Although only brief descriptions of reports on the New Zealand industry are available online, the full reports can be ordered by email. The page also links through to more detailed reports carried on IDC's coprorate site in the US.
"The site is intended to give people the chance to do their own seraches, rather than have to call us and have us do it," says research manager Pat Pilcher, who created the site himself over the past six months. "I hope it will enable a lot of people to get a lot of access to a lot of information. After all, IDC worldwide generates about 200,000 pieces of research a year."
