What are your IT Priorities for 2005?

ZDNet UK is launching the IT Priorities reader research programme for 2005 and needs your help – in return you could win an iPod

At ZDNet UK we pride ourselves on addressing the technology issues our readers want to see addressed, from highlighting the latest security flaw in Windows, to whether blade servers are a sensible server upgrade strategy for your business.

With the new financial year just beginning, the latest IT Priorities survey is now live and we are inviting readers to get involved and tell us about their IT plans for 2005. The information gleaned from the survey will be used to shape our editorial coverage for the year ahead.

By way of compensation and motivation, we're offering a free 20GB iPod one lucky reader who completes the survey — please note that only those who complete the survey fully will be in the running for the prize.

In 2003, the IT Priorities programme was created with the goal of tying our editorial coverage as closely as possible to the purchasing and implementation plans of UK companies. To this end, for the past 18 months we have carried out regular reader surveys to gauge whether Linux on the desktop really matters to you, whether you are using 3G mobile technology, and so on.

The IT Priorities Research programme is designed to provide a near-real-time snapshot of business technology initiatives over the coming 12 months.

Answering the majority of the questions in the survey, which should only take five to ten minutes to fill in, is simply a case of ticking boxes but there is an opportunity to describe any IT projects you may be particularly proud of in more detail. 

If you provide your consent, our editors may choose to follow up some of the information provided in the survey in order to share some of the lessons learned with other readers. Any information published will be completely anonymous unless previous agreement has been sought with the companies in question.

Those interested in IT Priorities should send an email to: marketing@zdnet.co.uk.
