Gartner Research: Who Has Access to What?

EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) Institutional Subscribers

ECAR subscribers receive three distinct services from Gartner:

  1. Gartner Webinars—All individuals at ECAR-subscribing higher education institutions are able to review Gartner's upcoming complimentary webinars, with the ability to search by topic and access archived seminars (see box at right).
  2. Gartner IT1 Research Reports—In 2014, ECAR staff will select four IT1 research reports that are most relevant or timely for the higher education IT community. Access to these reports expires one year from release. Announcements will be sent to all individuals at ECAR-subscribing institutions who have profiles on the EDUCAUSE website.
  3. Gartner IT News and Insight ServiceOne individual at each ECAR-subscribing institution, ideally the CIO or equivalent, receives access to over 500 Gartner selected research reports annually through the Gartner IT News and Insight Service. Gartner will invite the primary contact at the ECAR-subscribing institution to register to receive IT News and Insight access and communications.

What research is available through IT News and Insights?

How can I find out if a particular Gartner report is available?
If you have access to IT News and Insight and there is a specific Gartner report you are interested in, enter the title of the report or general subject in the search box in the upper right on your My Gartner home page.
