There are basic deliverables that are always present in the output from this service. This foundation takes the general format of:

  • Write-up of pertinent information targeted at query, as stated by client
  • Charts, to provide visual clarification, as needed
  • Comparison findings, as appropriate
  • Possible areas of additional consideration, based on preponderance of data patterns

Additional deliverables may be added to the output, based on the findings of the specific analysis.

SIL's Quick Query - Industry and Technology (QQIT) services provide a rapid analysis of the factors facing an organization for critical decisions. This level of query addresses questions that are targeted for a specific technology, and may also include a further focus on industry. Whether an organization is trying to understand the specific risk of a new industry application, change in the industry market positioning or other issues, the SIL QQIT is a fast and cost effective way to get an analysis that is backed by extensive data from the SIL heuristic database.

SIL customers use the QQIT service for many things. Some examples are:

  • What are the risks of MSN cloud adoption for collaboration systems within the real estate industry?
  • What are the costs and benefits of the most highly-adopted RFID products in national distribution companies?
  • What are the average personnel costs for supporting an Oracle DB within domestic retail organizations?

When an organization needs to have rapid research and substantiated analysis in groups of query-type activities, SIL offers a packaging of QQ service called a Query Pool (QP). This provides a more cost-effective and convenient grouping, reducing overall per query cost and avoiding individual purchasing overhead. The QP pricing is based on the number of queries included over a specific timeframe. QPs can be structured to contain a single type of query or to span all QQ offerings. Contact SIL communications for more information on QP packaging and pricing.

Whatever the type of IT or organizational question that is driving a strategy or tactic, SIL's extensive experience and data provides clear and objective information to assure informed decisions.
