Resources and services
This page is intended to convey a picture of the kinds of things that we do.
Non-members can gain a better understanding of the research we carry out, as well as view brief abstracts or contents pages for a selection of our research, by visiting our demo research library.
Non-members can also search our secure website.
We conduct various types of research on behalf of members who can log into our live Members' site and download PDFs, presentations, and Word documents at any time.
Our research falls into four main categories. Our most popular format is the Analyst Note, a concise piece of research summarizing research findings and giving actionable advice on a very specific topic.
At the start of the year we produce a longer publication called the IT People & Organization Review, which sums up the IT Human Resources scene as it stands as well as providing predictions for the coming year.
We also publish quarterly Snapshot Research reports. These quantitative reports are based on data provided by contributing members via a short questionnaire.
In addition to these publications, we have 'consultants guides'. These guides are extras and are not bundled into any subscription. Here are the contents pages of one.
As well as providing our members with research, we also host meetings on various topics. Nothing said in Diaz Research client meetings ever goes 'on the record' but we do produce notes that capture some of the interesting bits. Members get paper (never soft copy) printouts of any presentations made. Here are some sample notes.
Online events generally feature an update on the IT HR scene or a presentation on a key topic (e.g. Re-motivating the ageing IT workforce) while teleconferences are informal exchanges on key specialist topics (e.g. SAP skills and pay issues, IT contractor pay issues). Presentations are loaded onto our members' area.
Here is a flyer that describes this facility.
