Case Study

See how IDC is helping the State of Illinois transition to become the first "Smart State"

While there has been tremendous focus on smart cities in the past few years, in the US, smart states and regional governments also need to play a role. Working with Illinois while it put the concept of the smart state into action, IDC has identified a three-pronged approach for successful transformation.

IDC exhibits incredible customer service. They know my agenda and are basically an extension of my research team.

Director of Research, Healthcare Services and Strategy Firm

Research is both relevant and comprehensive around the subjects they cover. I just got new IDC DecisionScape stuff—looks like a 15 out of 10 for what I am looking for. Looks like exactly what I've been looking for a decade in IT materials.

CIO, State University

IDC is a great partner; they go above and beyond. They are very proactive. The variation of information about the same topic, IDC MarketScapes, IDC FutureScapes and depth of resources on a particular topic is pretty deep.

IT Manager, Top 10 Bank

For me in retail, what I like about IDC (unlike other firms like them) is they have a lot of retail specific expertise. The model is user friendly so we get multiple seats amd access. With Gartner, it's my personal license so it's all me.

CMO, Retail Performance and Security

My client service manager is responsive and can find a needle in a haystack. She's very flexible and serves things up to me. Client services is a differentiator for IDC.

CMO, Retail Performance and Security

If a colleague is in the energy industry, I would definitely recommend IDC. IDC research is spot on with where we see the industry going. We get a lot of value from the research & analysts. I like the new service - research access is excellent now.

Director, Enterprise Software

When we first renewed, I was amazed... I couldn’t believe how much access we had.

Director, Enterprise Software

I have always received a lot of value from time spent with analysts. They are always willing to get on a call on short notice to discuss some market trend or industry that we are interested in and that’s been very valuable.

Director, Enterprise Software

We did a workshop with some analysts and got really strong reviews. An analyst from France was really strong on mobile computing and helped us set our strategy and roadmap.

IT Enterprise Architect, Agribusiness

Whenever I made a request for anything the response was very quick and just what I was looking for.

IT Enterprise Architect, Agribusiness

IDC's core differentiation is their understanding of the technology space and healthcare industry.

Business Development and Strategy Manager, Healthcare Insurance

IDC research is more personalized than some of the other firms that are more well known. IDC seems to dig in and be more specific to your problem and goals.

Director, IT Project Management, Consumer Beauty Products Manufacturer

Every analyst I have spoken with has been really good. We invite them back to speak at our events. Knowledgeable, relevant, practical real-world experience and they are in touch.

Chief Technology Strategist, Network, Security & Data Company

The IDC differentiator is the quality of research and benchmarking, which is super helpful. The knowledge of analysts on different topics and different industries is also a strength. They are well versed on the landscape in the industries we work in.

EVP, Global Technology PR and Marketing Firm

IDC prepares high quality, very well written, thoughtful research. IDC takes things a step ahead and into another level of detail.

IT Manager, Global Supply Chain, Surgical Equipment Manufacturing

IDC analysts are pretty strong in a number of areas. They go beyond technology and try to understand business and how technology is plugged in.

IT Director, Global IT Delivery and Operations, Accessories and Clothing Retailer

We needed a concierge service, someone to help find the right research. IDC does this and separates themselves in that degree.

IT Director, Global IT Delivery and Operations, Accessories and Clothing Retailer

IDC's global footprint is stronger than others. A key strength is the depth in the areas of technology that matter for us and our clients.

Research Director, Global Digital Marketing and PR

IDC stands out because of their analysts. They are super transparent with us about what they are seeing in the market & they have a good handle on what is going on in the space.

Director, Product and Market Strategy, Healthcare Software and Tech services

IDC is easy to work with. I love that the packages are comprehensive for the organization and not as restrictive as some competitors. Coverage is very relevant to our space.

Director, Product and Market Strategy, Healthcare Software and Tech services.

Global research is a key strength. They have a group of top-notch analysts and their approachability helps the customer experience. I can’t imagine doing my job without them.

Director, Market Insights, Global IT Services Consulting

We have a very good relationship with IDC as far as a customer-client relationship. Their research is good, the work the analysts do is superb, and they are very responsive. We also have a major project with the consulting group which is key to what we do.

Director, Market Insights, Global IT Services Consulting

IDC brings multiple analysts to some of the calls which I like. It becomes a good group discussion as opposed to listening to a presentation or one person’s point of view. Being global, we really factor a global point of view into our decisions and actions.

VP, Digital Experience, Global Credit Services Provider
