Gartner’s Campus Access gives all Yale students, faculty, and staff unmetered access to published research focusing on in-depth strategic analysis of information technology trends, vendors, products, and technologies.

All IT professionals, including IT Partners, are encouraged to take advantage of the recent improvements made to the Gartner’s Core IT Research Library, which provides free access to published research focusing on strategic analysis of information technology trends, vendors, products, and technologies.

The service provides comprehensive insight in many areas including: 

  • Security & Risk Management
  • Identity & Privacy
  • Data Center
  • Network & Telecom
  • Data Management
  • Collaboration
  • Content Management
  • Application Platforms

Within these areas, the service provides documents and deliverables for most project phases including:

  • Planning Guides
  • Technology Assessments
  • Reference Architecture
  • Product Assessments
  • Guidance Framework
  • Field Research

In addition to the Gartner Technical Professionals research, all IT Staff and IT Partners have the ability to schedule 60-minute analyst calls; Gartner’s Technical Professionals Analysts have an average of 23 years of industry experience and collectively have published in excess of 30 books and hold almost 40 patents. In many cases, when you read a piece of research and schedule a call you, will be directed to and will talk with the author or one of the authors of that research.

In short, Gartner for Technical Professionals provides in-depth technical research, knowledge and best practices to advance initiatives and deliver outstanding results, accelerate project timelines and mitigate risk. 

The URL to access this library has changed slightly since the 2013 launch, so be sure to use this updated link:  The Gartner service is accessible with your Yale NetID and password.  VPN is not required to access the service from off campus.
