Todays Presentation Review of the Responses Demo of the Interactive Tech Report
Some highlights from NTAP Tech Surveys of 2008
Background Originally conceived of as a techie directory for the community Now more of a snapshot of where programs are with IT related stuff. Help see what IT choices peer programs made Very complex to do at regular intervals of time
How it was done Two extremely long surveys Admin survey was sent to administrators or directors IT survey was sent to via lists like lstech for a techie in the program to complete. None of the questions were mandatory. 84 responses to admin survey and 72 responses to IT survey. Thank you!
NTAP Tech Surveys Overview Admin Survey Budget IT Priorities Website Tech Training Project Mgmt + Wiki Tech Staff Tech Policies + Plans Software IT Survey Servers Backup Network Hardware Training Communication Web Conferencing Anti Virus
LSC funded Admin Survey 67% IT Survey 68%
No. of programs with dedicated IT budgets in relation to no. of programs in each budget category
IT Budget Hardware ranges from 1% to 50% Software ranges from 1% to 30% Training ranges from 0% to 6% Outside consulting/contracts 1% to 27.5% Communications 0.2% to 1%
Other observations Consistently and overwhelmingly, hardware and personnel make up the majority of the IT budget. Where the personnel budget % is low, it is usually made up in the category of Outside consulting/support contracts. Training is consistently the lowest portion of the IT budget and seems to trend with the personnel budget.

Some more tidbits
Purposes of Wikis 31% report having a wiki
46% Using HotDocs
VOIP 7 more are considering getting VOIP in the next year which would make this a split
Web Conferencing Uses
So.. There is so much diversity and variety in each facet of what our community has and does. It is almost impossible to cluster this information. Search rather than summarize would be more useful.
The Interactive Tech Report Quick access to the responses for the Tech and Admin Surveys Madhu was just talking about. Temporary home: ntapsurvey.lsntap.orgntapsurvey.lsntap.org Good tool to get a sense of tech adoption in the community.
The Interactive Tech Report What does it do? Access information about tech in other programs Viewable via search filters and sorting Upload or update information from your own organization Rate products, add new products to rate, and see the ratings of your peers Preserve confidentiality
The Interactive Tech Report Todays Demo Simple search, sorting and filters Individual records Product ratings How you can participate
The Interactive Tech Report Still in development: Exporting data Linking product pages to the survey records for all the products mentioned in the surveys Devising better browsing for the Product Review page. Matching the design to the upcoming new NTAP website
The Interactive Tech Report
NTAP looks forward to your participation in the ongoing Tech Report Product Ratings Product Reviews New program responses Updated program responses For reference, see How to Participate: Well let you know when the site goes live in April 2009!
