Ventana Research focuses on business and technology trends and best practices that maximize organizations’ potential to perform while reducing the time, cost and risk and still achieve optimal outcomes.

Ventana Research business is focused on meeting the needs of two key constituencies: buyers of business technology who require research, education and benchmark services to inform their acquisition decisions and ensure the optimal alignment of people, processes, information and technology in their organizations; and the suppliers of that technology who need research and insight into the buyers needs. Taking a top-down perspective, this pragmatic, management-oriented business approach yields the unique insights and advice that are at the center of the firm’s services. These services are built upon education-based approaches to workshops, assessments and advisory services that leverage our research methodology to deliver value in repeatable client engagements.

To truly make an impact on your organization you need a strong will and a solid plan for improvement. Ventana Research can help with both. We are linchpin that brings together the four components of performance management – people, processes, information and technology with a strong foundation of expertise and best practices focused on helping you. No consulting, IT advisory or business peer collaboration service offers the unified approach Ventana Research delivers through its combination of research and education, benchmark research, technology vendor knowledge and business and technology expertise. The Ventana Research approach will help you reduce the cost, risk and time of achieving optimal performance.

Ventana Research has established a research brand and respect 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 and benchmarks and our focus on helping 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.

Ventana Research provides the most comprehensive analyst and research coverage in the industry; business and IT professionals worldwide are members of our community and benefit from Ventana Research’s insights, as do highly regarded media and association partners around the globe.
