Purdue partnership gives students, faculty and staff access to latest technology research

West Lafayette faculty, staff and students now have access to the latest technology research and information thanks to a partnership between ITaP and Gartner, the global leader in IT industry research and insight.

The partnership with Gartner connects the University community to timely, real-world examples and content about technology, applicable to many facets of education - including engineering, finance and business.

Students, faculty and staff can access the Gartner database using their Purdue Career Account (BoilerKey) credentials at no cost, by visiting https://gartner.purdue.edu.

Some topics of interest in the current research include:

  • Digital Business strategy, culture and tactics
  • Artificial Intelligence, best use cases, etc.
  • The Internet of Things and its impact on existing and entrepreneurial businesses
  • Information Security as a key issue at all American businesses
  • Global impact of technology on business strategy and operations
  • Program and Portfolio Management for technology business leaders
  • “Digital Moments” that businesses use to capture market share

“Initially, the goal was to partner with Gartner to provide our team in ITaP with the resources necessary to manage and advance the complex IT infrastructure we have at Purdue,” says Ian Hyatt, Chief Information Officer. “But Gartner’s history of providing its resources to many of our peer institutions made the idea of expanding access across campus an obvious choice.”

Beyond helping IT professionals, Gartner’s tools have been used at universities to:

  • Provide students with advice about digital content management and portal strategies, library systems, and search engines.
  • Help faculty and researchers investigate technology tools for use in the classroom and in the field.
  • Give leadership objective advice and assistance on developing enterprise business and IT strategies, as well as organization structures, leadership, and staffing.
