How in-depth interviews work

Those insights – including anonymized excerpts of the interviews – are then delivered back to IDI participants and all 451 Alliance members in research reports, webinars, and member digests, as outlined in the 451 Alliance membership benefits.

IDIs are conducted on the following IT topics:

  • Cloud, Hosting, and Managed Services
  • IT Infrastructure
  • IoT
  • Information Security‚Äč


Note that your personal information, the name of your employer, and any identifying information will remain completely anonymous. You will never be asked to disclose confidential information as part of research interviews.
