The new program takes effect on April 20 of this year, and will offer complimentary access to Aberdeen research -- addressing an array of business challenges and solutions -- published over the past three years.

"We are making this research content available at no charge to showcase the depth and breadth of our analyst and research expertise," explains David Hatch, Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Aberdeen Group. "Business leaders have long relied on the best practices data Aberdeen research delivers to make more informed business and technology purchasing decisions, and vendors in the IT marketplace also rely on our insights to understand their customer's pressures, actions and capabilities. We believe that making Aberdeen research more widely available will ultimately lead to better-informed business and vendor communities."
