IT directors group CIO Connect has partnered with analyst relations strategy firm The Knowledge Capital Group (KCG) to help members measure the value of research.
According to CIO Connect, most organisations have difficulty in measuring the return on investment of their spend on research.
CIO Connect said the service aims to identify the best individual analysts to engage with for each technology initiative and will use industry best practices to integrate research and inquiry into the selection and buying process.
"For years our members have expressed concerns about the best way to use industry analyst research and services to improve their decisions" said Nick Kirkland of CIO Connect.
KCG president Stephen England said, "We have seen dramatic growth in the demand for a better way to use the undoubted expertise of the industry analysts by CIOs who really want to make well informed decisions without spending a fortune."
