About the 451 Alliance

The 451 Alliance is a community of IT professionals, tech executives, and tech-adjacent professionals who banded together for a common purpose: to be heard. 

IT vendors and service providers have an abundance of resources to market their products, but too often they tell would-be customers only what they want to hear. 

A division of 451 Research, the 451 Alliance harnesses the collective voice of these IT elites to report what’s really happening in IT. By sharing their knowledge and insight with the community, members are able to see through the hype and get down to the common experiences and trends that affect everyone. 

Membership is complimentary for those who qualify to join. In return for participating in market research, members gain access to the valuable information this community generates in the form of reports, email newsletters, webinars, and more.
