Don't Leave Money on the Table

  • 4-Dec-2018

Does your fiscal year end at the end of this month? What do you do with the euros left in the budget that went unspent?  Perhaps you can roll them over; perhaps not. Experience tells me many of you feel rushed to spend resources on low-quality projects.  Instead I'll encourage you to allocate remaining funds to benefit you immediately and well into the New Year.

IT professionals are increasingly getting asked to do more with less. That can make the end of the year an excellent time to help you become more prepared. Investing in your 2019 strategy now relies on solid groundwork, and research can play a key role here: trusted strategic frameworks, independent vendor advice, and fresh insights that can guide faster decision-making.

RSG's Research Can Save You Time and Trouble

Getting your hands on relevant research and advice can be faster and less expensive than you think. Discover a new vendor, source new insights, and absorb new learning resources — like market analyses, survey findings, and advisory papers that will benefit your team and your organization.

At a time when half of all technology projects fail, RSG can help you make the right decisions during the key, early stages of your investments. Since 2001, more than 4000 organizations around the world have used our research and advice to improve their business. We invite you to join them.

To be sure, you can check with whoever handles IT research for your organization. Or if you want a really quick answer, just send us a note and we can let you know.

Our customers say...

"The Real Story Group celebrates its 'vendor neutrality'. But it's not a neutrality that avoids taking positions. Far from it, their opinions are clearly stated, always well informed, and invariably fair."
