Benchmark Survey To Measure Strategic Importance Of Information Technology In Midsize Companies


Survey to provide business and IT leaders with insight into how peer companies use Information Technology to drive business performance.

PARK RIDGE, Ill. – January 24, 2008 – Midsize companies rely on Information Technology, but some companies use IT more effectively than others. The Mikan Group wants to help business leaders understand how IT is being applied by other companies and industries to enable business growth, innovation, and competitive ability.

Available online at, the 2008 IT Business Alignment Benchmark Survey is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Information Technology in enabling companies to overcome business challenges and execute strategy. The compiled and analyzed results of the survey will provide business leaders with valuable information that can be applied to their own enterprises.

Leaders from all business functions, including IT, are invited to complete the 10-15 minute survey. Each participant will receive a copy of the published benchmark data, including detailed analysis and key findings. The survey will be available on The Mikan Group website until February 22, and company President Michael Topalovich is confident that business leaders will find significant value in participating in the benchmark survey.

“The business environment is growing more challenging and complex, and midsize companies are looking for new ways to grow and compete,” says Topalovich. “Information Technology, when managed effectively and integrated with business strategy and processes, can enable such growth and competition. This survey will help business leaders frame the discussion around the strategic use of IT in their own companies by understanding how IT is being leveraged by peers and competitors.”

As an additional thank you for completing the benchmark survey, The Mikan Group is also offering one hour of phone consultation at no charge to survey participants from qualified midsize organizations.
