Reg Tech Panel There's a lot of stuff running on servers that underpin the majority of your organizations applications and end user computing.

From operating systems, web servers, through BI and analytics systems, to transaction engines, workflow engines and other forms of middleware – not to mention the development environments and management systems needed to make it all work.

It's rare to find anyone who doesn't think about all of these elements separately. But vendors are increasingly touting their integrated stacks and platforms as a way of optimizing business processes and delivering performance excellence.

Are they right? We've got a survey right here that will help all of us answer that question.

Plough through the questions, share your wisdom and in return – in a couple of weeks - we'll send you the resulting report. Then we'll know for sure. ®
