IDC's IRS Select is a scalable service that provides IDC financial clients with flexible access to IDC's global content and worldwide analysts through a dedicated, single point of contact. IRS Select offers unencumbered access into five research content areas. Subscribing to IRS Select entitles clients to a bank of inquiry hours that can be allocated toward direct analyst interaction, custom research, and consulting projects. Additionally, this bank of hours can be allocated toward existing published data and information that fall outside the five research content areas, at a significant discount.
