As MWD’s Operations Director it’s not often that I get to blog, but I’ve got a bit of company news to share that we’re excited about.
As a reader of this blog you’ve probably been around MWD for a while and heard about the research we publish on a regular basis – dozens of reports each year in fact. Until now there have been two main ways to get hold of the actual reports: one, be a ‘named user’ as part of your company’s corporate subscription to one of our research programs (right now that’s Analytics & Information Management, BPM and Collaboration); or two, buy a report from our web shop. And many of you do.
However we’ve been hearing from our community for some time that it would be great to be able to get full access to all the premium reports published within our research programs, but that accessing the budget for a corporate subscription is hard… most people have to jump through major budgeting and purchasing process hoops. And while it’s useful to be able to buy individual reports now and then, well – wouldn’t it be nice to have access to the whole lot at an affordable price?
So we’ve come up with something we think you’ll really like. It’s an all-new “Personal” membership plan, which gives you unlimited access to all our premium research, decision support and planning tools and other goodies for just £295/$495/EUR350 per program per year. We think that’s a really compelling price (and represents a colossal saving over buying reports individually).
We’ve designed the Personal membership plan to make it easy for individuals like you to benefit from our research really quickly without having to make complicated business cases, enlist approvals from corporate purchasing departments and so on. You can sign up and get started in just a couple of minutes by subscribing online using a credit card (or if you don’t have one, just drop us a line and we’ll send you an invoice).
Of course spending money of whatever amount still needs to address a need or business pain, right? Perhaps you’re keen to see the new batch of BPM technology assessment updates for 2012 comes out next month… or if you’re looking at saving your company big bucks by switching to email in the cloud you’ll want to get access to a strategic guide to doing just that, along with a collection of vendor profiles to help you build your shortlist and identify your requirements. Or maybe social analytics is your focus; if so, sign up now and download a Strategic Insight report on the topic immediately, and then watch out for a new accompanying series of vendor profiles scheduled to be published this summer. By subscribing to the Personal membership plan you’ll instantly save $$$ (or £££, or E-E-EUR). Your subscription runs for 12 months so you’ll catch all the great new research we have planned, as well as everything currently published.
If you want to find out more, please have a look at this membership plan overview page. It’s got all you need to know about the new Personal plan, as well as our existing Team and Enterprise plans, and a selection of sample reports. And if you still have questions for us, take a look at the FAQ.
Our aim is to make it as simple as possible for you to access great research so you can make better, more informed plans and decisions. We think we’ve just made a big step in that regard.
So that’s my news. I hope it piqued your curiosity. Now over to you.
