Peer Networking Services from Global’s Sister Company, the IMF
The Information Management Forum: The Peer Networking Side of Global
Mission Statement: The IMF is the best source for unbiased, shared information in IT. We provide the highest quality personal service for a group of select members and work to be the best value in their IT budget.
The Information Management Forum was founded by five forward-thinking CIO’s who envisioned peer-to-peer learning in a strictly vendor-free environment. Though vendor-sponsored networks and research companies have expanded and saturated the IT landscape over time, IMF’s goal since its beginning in 1975 has been to be the best source of experiential data in IT for a select group of members while remaining strictly vendor-free. The diverse base of members utilizes IMF as an extension of their staff to achieve their goals. For over thirty years one constant remains the same: IMF’s only motive is its members’ success.
-Use of IMF Forums for Leadship development for their entire IT Organization, as well as for the HR functions that support IT. Forums are kept small and interactive, and include dozens of meetings and Web Forums that enable direct peer-to-peer interaction on topics of broad interest.
-IMF Connect forms ad hoc focus groups to answer specific questions. Our members tap the experience of their peers to get answers to challenges that they are facing within their own organizations. The IMF facilitates and project manages these discussions and produces final summaries for our busy members.
-IMF Reports provide a rich archive of real-world experience participants can draw on as they address their issues and challenges. More than 900 reports covering the full spectrum of IT issues and challenges are available online.
-IMF Benchmark Forum allows unlimited, on-demand access to benchmark data to be used for comparative business analysis.
