What are your IT Priorities in 2006?

ZDNet UK is launching its IT Priorities reader research programme for 2006 and needs your help - in return you could win an iPod


ZDNet UK prides itself on tackling the technology issues IT professionals want to see addressed, from highlighting the latest security flaw in Windows to whether blades are a sensible server upgrade strategy for your business.

With the new year just underway, the latest IT Priorities Survey form is now live and we are inviting readers to get involved and talk about their IT plans for 2006. The information gleaned from the survey will be used to create an in-depth report into UK companies' spending plans this year and also shape ZDNet UK's editorial coverage.

You can access a free copy of the last quarter's IT Priorities Survey report, created in association with analysts at Butler Group here.

By way of compensation and motivation, we're offering a free 20GB iPod to 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 ZDNet UK's editorial coverage as closely as possible to the purchasing and implementation plans of UK companies. To this end, over the past 18 months we have carried out regular reader surveys to gauge such things as the importance of desktop Linux, the prevalence of 3G technology or what IT professionals think of mobile working.

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. There is also an opportunity to describe any IT projects you may be particularly proud of in more detail.

If you provide your consent, ZDNet UK's 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 email our marketing team.

The editor of ZDNet UK's Insight section is Andrew Donoghue. Please feel free to email him your comments, queries or suggestions.
