An iPod for your TCO numbers

Yes, Radicati again … I received an email yesterday in which Radicati offers and iPod Video (30gb) if you fill in a TCO survey on behalf of your organisation.

Now that Loti sort of have banned Radicati from their world, could mean more iPod for Exchange 2007 users 😀


We are contacting you because you have previously requested to receive correspondents from The Radicati Group. We are conducting a new survey for the following e-mail platforms:

-Lotus Domino 7

-Microsoft Exchange 2007

-Novell GroupWise 7

This survey pertains to Total Cost of Ownership data, including number of users, acquisition/maintenance cost, administration costs, etc. The survey should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete.

Respondents that complete surveys will be given a free Video IPod (30GB) for their time.

If you are interested, please reply with the following information:



-Platform (either Domino 7, Exchange 2007, or GroupWise 7)

-Number of Users on that platform

Selected respondents will need to complete our survey and possibly speak with an analyst to confirm their results.

No company-specific information will be included in this survey, your name and organization will remain confidential.

Thanks in advance for your time.

The Radicati Group

  1. Bear in mind that medium to large companies do not allow their staff to mention their company, nor profit from schemes like these. So all thats left are small customers, BP’s and fanboys.
    Self-selecting, low participation, and dubious motivation behind participation. You can just smell the quality.
    And now you see why Radicati’s “surveys” and viewpoints are IMHO – shall we say – factually challenged ?
    You’d have thought they’d have offered a Zune for the MS fanboys though..

  2. Bill,
    Although I am less biased with regards to Radicati then you are, I agree with you.
    Regardless whether or not a company would allow its employees to benefit from this sort of activity I would say this sort of ‘bonus’ is not quite in line with the effort.
    I like the fact that it’s and iPod because it illustrates the objectivity wrt the Microsoft reationship 😉
