The Gartner/RIS News Retail Tech Study 2009

by Jeff Roster  |  January 27, 2009  |  1 Comment

I just launched the study yesterday and the data is streaming in.  Already I’m seeing some interesting and counterintuitive trends in the data.  Each year this study is important.  It gives us a unique view into the retailer mindset on IT spending patterns.  However this year the importance is off the charts.  If you haven’t gotten a survey invite and would like to particiape please drop me a note at and I’ll send you the link.
