Sources of software knowledge

The purpose of "inlevel 2011 Report: Middle Management as Business Software Influencer's" based on survey conducted between American middle managers was to check their approach to business software. Do they have influence on software they use? What they need? Do business software vendors pay enough attention to them?

Middle managers are not typical decision makers within enterprise. However, 42% of them actively act during enterprise software selection process. They want to talk to software vendors, gather knowledge about software and participate in software project teams. 21% of middle managers want to introduce their own software initiatives and present them to management.

Being experienced in real environment respondents expect that IT people can be against their software initiatives (24%) and they expect that management would not be interested (23%). 21% of middle managers feel comfortable with business software issues and they are sure their own suggestions about software will be welcome within company.

Middle managers think that their influence on software selection would be more effective when software vendors put more attention to them, especially:
- provide clear, easy to understand description of what software does (45% respondents asked for it!)
- prepare educational/training materials about software dedicated to business professionals
- make possible to easily find software related to particular job

38% of middle managers do not know what software their peers are using. They also do not treat social services as a medium to exchange thoughts about software.

Search engines are still perceived as the main source of information. However as we know the vast majority of content presented by search engines is created by companies to get their websites listed at the top of search results and in consequences it does not bring real value. Second source of software information are IT people.

The interesting is that 16% of respondents are getting information about software directly from software vendors. It means they are able to directly manage vendors in terms of their business software needs not being typical business software decision makers.
