Internet Research Group Publishes Research Study
On Surviving the Recession

Los Altos, CA – January 23, 2008 – Internet Research Group (IRG) today announced the release of its latest report on the business of technology infrastructure, “Surviving This Recession – Strategies to Gain Market Share During the Recession.” Information Technology infrastructure companies are not immune from today’s economic conditions. Many IT infrastructure executives are wondering what 2009 has in store for their companies. During the depression, Charles Kettering, the inventor of the electric car-starter, founder of Delco and head of GM’s research labs to 1947 had this advice for businesses, “I believe business will come back when we get some products that people want to buy.”

In this new report, IRG looks at ways IT infrastructure organizations can align their marketing and sales strategies to make the most of market conditions. “This recession may be an opportunity to put you in the position to gain market share,” noted John Katsaros, co-founder of IRG. “During difficult economic periods, companies often stumble and cut back when in fact they should be re-aligning their positioning and investing in strategies which can increase market share.”

This report presents twelve strategies for winning market share during difficult economic periods.
