The information and communication technology industry is one of the most innovative, stimulating, challenging and fast-moving, and, whether we like it or not, IT has become a major part of all our lives. The industry has created vast new opportunities for job seekers, consultants, shareholders and investors alike. The Corporate Research Foundation's panel of independent experts (drawn from the leading technology press, broadsheets and trade associations) analysed over 2000 IT and Communications companies to find the most successful in the UK. Their insights, based on interviews with senior management and HR personnel as well as extentsive research and analysis, are here compiled into a series of in-depth profiles. Each profile features star ratings, best and worst features and key facts and figures, as well as performance assesments based on reputation/customer focus, products and services, turnover/profit/growth rate, strategic alliances, training and development, and career opportunities.
