An iPod for 10 minutes of your time

By completing ZDNet UK's IT Priorities survey, you will be contributing to a unique and significant research programme

With summer drawing to an end, our new IT Priorities survey is now live and we want you to get involved and tell us about your IT plans for the rest of 2005 and beyond. The information gleaned from the survey will be used to create an informative research report on the state of UK IT as well as shape our future editorial coverage. Oh, and you get the chance to win an iPod.

You can access the online survey here.

You can also register for our IT Priorities Live! conference on the 26th September which will explore the issues raised in the research here.

At ZDNet UK we pride ourselves on tackling the issues our readers want to see addressed, from highlighting the latest security flaw in Windows to examining whether blade servers make sense for your business.

In 2003, the IT Priorities research programme was created with the goal of tying our editorial coverage even more closely to the purchasing and implementation plans of UK business. To this end we have carried out reader surveys every 90 days to find, for example, whether Linux on the desktop really matters or if many companies are actually using 3G mobile technology.

In particular we will continue to use the information to fine-tune our range of IT Priorities Toolkits to ensure that these content portals address the technical questions our readers want answered.

Answering the majority of the survey is simply a case of ticking boxes but you also have an opportunity to describe in more detail any IT projects you may be particularly proud.

Remember, you'll only be entered for the iPod draw if you complete the survey — but this should only take around 10 minutes of your time.

If you provide your consent, our editors may choose to follow up some of the information provided in the survey in order to share the lessons learned with other readers. Any information published will be completely anonymous unless you and the companies involved agree to be named.
