About Diaz Research
Diaz Research acts as a trusted hub for subscribing members, allowing them to exchange information with each other and providing them with high quality research. In 2010 we moved beyond our historic base in the UK and Ireland by setting up the Global Best group of companies.
We are completely independent and take no sponsorship or revenue from anyone other than our clients. Client events are private peer-peer exchanges. No suppliers or press are present, except by special invitation - and then only for their own part of the agenda.
If you want to keep in touch with what we are doing, and with developments in this field generally, why not take our (free) e-newsletter.
As of January 2013, many of the largest IT functions in the UK and Ireland are clients, as are an increasing number of companies from elsewhere, under the umbrella of the Global Best group.
Diaz Research was founded in 2001 by Iain Smith, then head of the Hay Group's TMT consulting team in London. Initially it was a pure research company focusing on IT employee issues but it soon launched its first subscription service, providing a mix of research and meetings.

'Diaz' was chosen because it is memorable and because it has an exploration theme. Bartolomeu Diaz was the man who first went round the Cape of Good Hope.
