About Research Circle

Gartner Research Circle is a members only online community created as part of Gartner’s commitment to keep IT and Business decision makers at the heart of our business and research initiatives. Your input provides valuable insight to help shape the future of the industry.

What’s in it for me?

First of all, taking part in Research Circle is a unique opportunity to let Gartner know what you think, and play an active role in shaping influential thought leadership for your role and industry. You will do this through polls, short surveys, discussions, focus groups and other online activities.

But we also want to keep the conversation going both ways. As a Gartner Research Circle member you will have exclusive access to the results synopsis and key findings on research you take part in. These summaries will be available on the Gartner Research Circle Latest Results page once the data has been aggregated and analyzed. Note that the timeline for receiving research summaries can vary depending on the scope of the research and can take anywhere from two weeks to three months to become available.

Finally, we think it’s important to say thank you for taking part; that is why periodically we will offer you other perks and benefits, or make a donation on your behalf to a charity of your choice. Because we want all our members to see value in being part of Research Circle, we will make sure to design a reward program that works for you.

How does it work?

You can expect to be contacted about once or twice a month to take part in various research activities if we feel they’re relevant to you, that’s why it’s important to make sure your profile is up to date.

You can also login whenever you want to see what’s new on Research Circle – such as latest research, quick polls, surveys and online discussions – and you can interact with other members by reading, commenting or liking posts, starting your own discussions or sending a private message.

Rest assured that the information you provide will only be used in aggregate. Your name or company will never be associated with feedback or information you provide. Confidentiality is of utmost importance to us.
