What We Do

We are Indaba. We make it our job to know what customers, solution providers, and vendors are thinking. Our research process starts with conversations with Info-Tech Research Group’s IT end user customers – of whom there are 21,000 globally. We also speak with technology vendors; we’re aware of top tier IT vendors’ latest product releases, channel program updates and changes in strategic direction often before they are publicly announced. And we give a voice to solution providers with our extensive partner program research.

How can we help?

If you're looking for market insight or advice on go-to-market strategies, our team of analysts can guide you in the right direction.  Our syndicated research focuses on the following three pillars:

  • Syndicated Market Research
    • We understand solution providers: we know their pain points, and we know what it takes to win their loyalty.
    • We talk to end customers: we know what IT customers want, we know the current industry trends, and we know what topics are hot.
  • Custom Research and Consulting Services
    • We follow a 7-step hypothesis driven research approach to uncover key insights for our clients.
      • Step 1: Hypothesis Creation
      • Step 2: Hypothesis-Testing Interviews
      • Step 3: Survey Creation and Fielding
      • Step 4: Statistical Modeling and Analysis
      • Step 5: Insight Interviews
      • Step 6: Final Reporting
      • Step 7: Action Planning
  • Go-to-market services
    • Sales Team Enablement – Our analysts equip your sales force with an understanding of IT customers’ key issues and empower them to better sell IT solutions.
    • Vendor – sponsored demand generation and lead nurturing activities allows us drive customers towards specific initiatives or solutions. Examples include:
      • Canada’s Smartest IT – an online community that educates IT and business decision makers on technology trends and advises them throughout the entire purchase process, providing research reports, ROI tools, and webinars.
      • Meeting of the Minds – a road show where analysts join forces with industry experts to educate customers, partners and prospects
      • Webinars – audio or video webinars can be customized for any technology area and are used to highlight industry trends, new products, or programs
  • Marketing collateral
  • Analyst Inquiry
    • Our thought leaders are the cornerstone of our success. Info-Tech’s teams of seasoned analysts provide unbiased, executive decision support across a broad range of subject areas.
