Gartner’s IT Trends In Your Industry Report & Presentation: Industry Overview and
Strategic IT Trends
Report Instructions: In this report, you must examine how IT is used in an industry that you are interested in. You
must define the industry, describe key issues and current IT trends. A secondary goal is for you to learn about and use
sources like ONET, IBIS World and Gartner. (Length: 2.25-2.5 pages: please do not go over or under).
• Introduction: Discuss what the paper is about
• A small section on your Career and Industry: For your career– What kind of career are you interested in?
(Feel free to discuss your entry-level career and your career 10 years down the road!). Use ONET or a similar site
(and be sure to reference it at the end). As far as your industry, the IBIS source is great to use. Include the
o Industry NAICS title and code. Please include a source citation.
o Industry Size (typically measured in billions of dollars). Please include a source citation.
o Industry Competitors (two to three sample firms). Please include a source citation.
• A larger section on the one (or two–no more) strategic IT Trend (from Gartner articles) that impacts your
industry the most: For this section, use Gartner research available from WCU’s Library. Which of Gartner’s top
10 strategic IT trends impacts your industry the most? For your industry, look up each strategic IT trend and note
which ones produce the most/best results. Another strategy to try is to use other sources (Google) to identify
trends in your industry and then use Gartner to learn more about one or two of the trends. Be specific in this
section. Use Gartner as a source (and be sure to cite it in your post and reference it at the end) and include
source citations. Include specific examples of that trend affecting specific firms in your industry.
• Conclusion: wrap up your report
Format: Microsoft Word document, double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12-point font. Word Count
excludes references at the end. Do not write your name, my name or the date on the first page. Just title your report at the
top and start right in with your introduction.
In-Post Citations, References and Quotation Marks: You should have at least five cites (citations) WITHIN the paper
AND five corresponding references at the end. One cite and reference needs to come from Gartner.
For cites within your post, use APA style such as (Kapakos, 2021) or (www.biztalk.com) just after the information you got
from that source AND also include references at the end of your report (please use APA style). Plagiarism includes
leaving out in-paper cites, quotation marks or references at the end. End-of-Paper references do not count toward paper
