Monday, September 14, 2020

Gartner informs and empowers you by providing research and analysis on IT-related topics in easily relatable terms

If there’s one constant for those of us at Stanford involved in information technology, it is that nothing is constant except change. That’s why access to the Gartner IT research library is a game changer. This indispensable resource for all IT professionals can improve your IT-related decisions and save you an incredible amount of time while doing so.

And at least through this academic year, University IT will continue to make it available to all Stanford faculty, students, and staff (including those at SLAC) at no charge.

In addition to the Gartner IT research library provided by UIT, University Human Resources provides the Stanford community with access to two additional Gartner modules:
