Consider this: you have been searching for a household item on the internet and have narrowed the choices to two based on product and feature information on the company websites. Before making your final decision, what do you do? If you are anything like me, you will get distracted by some other chore or notification and the laundry will continue to pile up until you return to the search. But enough about me – my point is that most people would not make the final purchase until they have looked at some unbiased reviews of the products in question.
Now, consider you are making a purchase at work with budget for which you are the business owner. Making a business decision is a huge responsibility. With multiple stakeholder involvement, large budgetary requirements, compliancy considerations, implementation concerns (the list goes on) - IT decisions can often be the most complex. The process can be arduous, and it helps to have the right information available at the right time to ensure the final decision is well informed. You may be in an organization where the choices are already mapped out and it is a case of compare and contrast, or you may be in a position to look at a wide market of platform, tools and vendor possibilities. Regardless of the decision tree, you will want to browse some content from current users of the proposed solutions in various formats such as case studies, use case documents, articles or presentations.

Often, a longer form piece of written content delivered to stakeholders at the right moment can be excellent in providing deeper insights into how technology has made an impact within an organisation.
