|How We Do It|
What is the ChangeWave Research Network and Who Are Its Members?
The ChangeWave Research Network is a group of 25,000 highly qualified business amd technology professionals – as well as early adopter consumers – who over the past 13 years have joined to form one of the most unique intelligence gathering networks in the world.
Our proprietary process is based upon the systematic collection of valuable information directly over the Internet from accredited members. ChangeWave surveys its Network members weekly on a range of business and consumer topics, and converts the information into a series of proprietary, large sample, quantitative and qualitative reports.
The intelligence provided by ChangeWave provides a real-time view of consumer spending, corporate purchasing, and company, technology and business trends in key market sectors, along with an in-depth perspective of the macro economy – well in advance of other available sources.
The Network has assembled its membership from leading companies of select industries – credentialed professionals who spend their everyday lives working on the frontline of technological change. More than half of members (53%) have advanced graduate degrees (e.g., Masters or Ph.D.) and 91% have at least a 4-year bachelor's degree.
Members represent a broad cross section of vertical markets such as software, telecom, healthcare, energy, hardware, manufacturing and retail, along with a wide range of professional disciplines including IT decision makers, programmers, executives, sales personnel, engineers, and physicians.
