Regional Study Will Help Develop Online Collaboration Tools
Market research into how enterprises in the North of England use IT is being completed as part of a new project funded by the EPSRC and Northern Leadership Academy.
Research will also explore how managers perceive that open source web-based technologies could enhance their organisation's capacity.
A telephone based survey will collect vital IT statistics and managers' perceptions from 1,200 enterprises of all types in the North West, North East and Yorkshire and Humber regions.
The eventual aim of this project is to develop a set of easy to use online business tools, like video conferencing or document collaboration software, to help organisations in the UK remain competitive.
