Who are we?

The Vanson Bourne Community is a part of Vanson Bourne, an independent and specialist market research agency that delivers research which contributes to the global success of technology companies.

Vanson Bourne has been a leading researcher provider for the technology industry since 1999 and works with a number of large and small partners helping them to achieve their objectives.

Who are our members?

There are currently around 1,000 Community members (and growing) working in IT roles for a wide range of organisations, big and small, up and down the UK.

All our members are regularly invited to take part in research studies, either for our clients or for thought pieces, such as our monthly blog.

By joining us you’ll have a fantastic opportunity to influence the decisions that technology companies make and to discover new emerging trends and perspectives in the industry.

That’s not all, you’ll also be able to join your peers across the technology industry to discuss thought-provoking topics and share your views in our discussion boards.
