Burton Group's IT Research Reports

 

Burton Group’s IT Research Reports are tactically focused to keep info tech managers ahead of the curve on new IT developments. Burton Group offers in-depth reports on products and technology areas, a web-based decision-making tool called a “reference architecture” as well as methodologies and best practices documents. What I especially like are the powerpoint versions of reports with all the graphics to help with communicating to upper management.
