(Vocus/PRWEB) February 04, 2011
Gleanster today announced the publication of three new "Gleansight" benchmark reports, on Mobile Marketing, Business Intelligence and Enterprise Collaboration. Drawing from the experiences of more than five hundred companies, the reports offer a comprehensive look at how Top Performers are implementing each of these initiatives to achieve their desired business objectives.
"There’s a lot of confusion in the marketplace, owing to the fact that these are all emerging, rapidly evolving areas," said Jeff Zabin, chief and research director at Gleanster. "Industry practitioners are struggling to understand what works and what doesn’t, and how they can maximize the value of their investments. This research should go a long way toward helping them make smart decisions when it comes to not only deploying the right enabling technologies but also to putting in place the right organizational resources, business processes and performance metrics."
