Dear University of Sunderland,

What IT Research providers are you using for your IT Services department, Academic Staff and Students? (research access through electronic for computing students/information technology)

Do you have a subscription with Gartner?
How much do you pay annually for this subscription?
When does this subscription end?
Who makes the decision to acquire, is it Library or IT Services?
Who can I contact to speak about providing technology based research?

Yours faithfully,
Ash Haque

Dear Sunfoi sunfoi,

Universities use a number of resources for their Students, Academic Staff and also for IT Services.

What I wanted to know is what resources does the University use. For example to teach Students in Information Technology based courses (such as computing, cyber security, big data analytics) or for the IT services to get Information Technology research access.

Yours sincerely,

Ash
