IT Organizations That Helped Build the Museum…

Ferris Research would like to thank the following organizations and their IT departments. We helped them plan and deploy their email systems. And they shared their hard-won insights and experience with us.

We were lucky that we could develop a personal relationship with many of our clients. This was extremely valuable, because it helped us learn about user adoption issues and strategies, and what was working well vs. what was failing. It’s hard to reason a priori about deployment issues. So much of our research was done by talking to IT staff responsible for deploying email, and then generalizing from what we learned.

In many cases it was also distinctly pleasurable to get to know our clients.

We therefore single out a number of people for our particular appreciation. We’ve missed some people who should be here. If you had a close relationship with us, but aren’t on the list, please drop David Ferris a line on david.ferris@ferris.com, he’ll be happy to hear from you:
