Opt In to Receive Gartner Research on Topics of Interest to You
By David M. Blocher – Director of Policies and Strategies Office
Effective July 1, 2006 Gartner is restricting the use of its services to specific named individuals. Thus I have designated Victor Chakravarty and Stephanie Parker of my staff as the State of Maine Gartner seat holders. Either Victor or Stephanie can obtain copies of Gartner materials on the behalf of OIT Employees. Victor also has access to Gartner Research to ask questions or coordinate external reviews of draft work.
In addition, you may e-mail Karen Strong ( email@example.com ) of Gartner to opt in to receive an average of three e-mails a month on any of the following topics. You will get an announcement of new papers that are available, but will need to go through Stephanie or Victor to request copies. Be sure to identify which topics you would like to receive when e-mailing Karen. If at anytime you want to opt out, simply let Karen know.
