The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Reg Technology Panel It's been well over a year since we asked for your views on the organisations you buy IT products and services from. But today sees the welcome return of our The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Vendor survey.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly helps us paint a picture of the supplier landscape, praising those that are performing, shaming those that aren't - and getting a handle on how relevant those so called "hot topics" we all keep hearing about really are.

So what are you waiting for? The survey should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete, but it does depend on how much you want to put in. Click here to get started.

The results will be posted as soon as our number bods have finished crunching all your data, so make sure you keep checking The Register for what is shaping up to be an interesting read.

Last year we were inundated with responses, and if you haven't seen them already a copy of last year's results can be downloaded here. ®
