The speed of search has altered our expectations when it comes to conducting research. We can search peer reviews for just about anything, but not enterprise software, not distributed working models, and definitely can’t easily research and search peer reviews on custom implementations, how to best work with a CEO, impacts of work from home initiatives, and other CIO and CTO interests.

Meet Pulse Q&A is looking to change that. Pulse QA is the research platform designed and dedicated to helping CIOs and technology leaders make smarter decisions through the power of crowdsourced data, and it starts with building a massive powerful community of the top CIOs and CTOs in the industry.

“The best way to describe Pulse is what Google is to search, Pulse is to research. People have gotten really used to being able to do a search and come up with fast, accurate, and free result. Informed decisions and research on the other hand is extremely hard where you have to set up an account, become a master in how to do surveys, figure out how to contact the right people, especially on the B2B side this is even more challenging.” Mayank Meht, Founder and CEO of Pulse Q&A, wants to close the gap between search and the latency of crowdsourced data. The goal: Get back real results, in real-time to help leadership executives make better and more informed decisions. On this episode of IT Visionaries, Mayank discusses the platform and all of its benefits, and he gives some insight into some of the top conversations CIOs are having today.

Main Takeaways

  • Do You Have Two Forms of ID? By sourcing and authenticating real CIOs, members of the C-Suite are able to confidently ask their peers questions, while gaining insights and information about struggles and solutions that other members have experienced. And this is all data that is not available or difficult to source on other platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Data and Real-time Responses: By limiting the people allowed in these communities to CIOs, Pulse Q&A has the ability to collect valuable insights while turning around real-time responses in order to give the question asker, actionable insights at the speed of search.
  • The Three Big Issues: There are three main challenges that CIOs are facing today. The first is how businesses will effectively return to normal after the pandemic subsides. The second is digital transformations and how businesses can get actionable ROI from their technology stacks. And lastly, how to source through the endless amount of vendors in the space today.
