Today we are very excited to announce our partnership with UBM TechWeb. We've been clients of UBM TechWeb through our sponsorship of Gov 2.0 events (for our IdeaScale business) and participated in many of the events that they put together - Web 2.0 Expo, Web 2.0 Summit etc.
This partnership is unique and interesting in the sense that we have a lot of ideas that we know we can work together on to bring some changes to the market research industry and business as a whole. UBM TechWeb as you might be aware owns a lot of media properties including InformationWeek and Light Reading. One of our goals is to revolutionalize access to research by allowing our customers easy and one-click access to the audience profiles like InformationWeek and Light Reading.
Over the next few months, we will be rolling out a series of enhancements and services that will reflect this partnership and enable our clients to push the boundaries of traditional market research.
One such concrete example is a pilot project on an InformationWeek Pulse Panel. The IW-Pulse panel will be a representative sample of IT-Pros and we will be not only powering that technology, but we'll also provide other clients and market researchers access to the IW-Pulse panel. We plan on launching this in the next 2 months. If you'd like to get notified when this goes live, please subscribe to the blog - we'll update it when we go live. Review official press release below:
