Corporations operating in the IT sector can be both the disruptors and the disrupted: The pace of change in technology markets means that there are frequently as many opportunities as there are threats to your business. Accordingly, you need an agile insight partner that can help you stay ahead of your competition – wherever this might come from.
B2B International has a specialist technology insights team: They help the world’s leading IT and technology brands solve their biggest strategic and marketing challenges.
In almost two decades of doing technology market research we’ve acquired lots of practical, category-specific experience along the way.

We deliver IT market intelligence studies that are uniquely designed for you and your stakeholders’ needs. Whatever the challenges and information requirements of your role, we can design research solutions to suit:
Technology marketers and sales teams
Enterprise technology decisions are often complex, long-term purchase processes with many stakeholders influencing and shaping them. We can help you to better understand the purchasing unit, the decision-makers and influencers to optimize your sales and marketing efforts.
Product and category management
Tech brands need to maximise returns from existing offerings and find incremental sources of income from new, innovative propositions. Whatever the maturity of your market, we can help you to assess market reactions from initial ideas, through to go-to-market planning.
Market insight and research professionals
For B2B tech research professionals, it can either be feast or famine. Sometimes you’re overwhelmed with data and need help organising your knowledge assets. On other occasions, you need targeted research that’s addressed at your market niche. In both cases, we have the resources and experience to assist.
Strategy groups and senior management
Investing in new opportunities and assessing the potential left in existing markets requires solid evidence. Our practical experience in accurately sizing and forecasting technology markets can help in planning your organization’s next strategic move.
Integrators and channel partners
We can help you understand your position within the full value chain – from OEMs through to end users: Which vendors are in demand? What are the needs of B2B technology buyers? What are the drivers and barriers to sales?
We Only Do
We don’t do off-the-shelf reports or “me too” insights that your competitors can also use: We build all our research programs from the ground up, just for your brand.
We’ll approach the brief objectively and give you an honest appraisal of the commercial opportunities and your position in the market.
We Design Research With Practical Change In Mind
Our B2B Advisory services mean we can help you to go further than many technology insight partners in implementing the tactics and strategy arising from research.
All good research starts with speaking to the right people. As B2B market research specialists, getting access to the relevant tech sector target audiences is our stock-in-trade.
We place the utmost importance on the quality of the data we collect – whether it’s online, by telephone or face-to-face. Below are just some of the audiences we can help you to access:
