publish well known reports such as Market Scope and Magic Quadrants. Here is a simple way at no cost for you to get these documents.

When technology providers are mentioned in these famous reports they pay a right to reprint and allow people or companies that let their contact information to access the publication. Gartner is providing a hosted environment for these suppliers and their related customers to obtain their researches.

The Hint

The IP address of this site is http://mediaproducts.gartner.com/reprints. I found out for instance the “Magic Quadrant for IT Project and Portfolio Management” (2 June 2009) @ http://mediaproducts.gartner.com/reprints/ca/article3/article3.html.

The Tip

Looking at this URL, it was tempting to test if by increasing or decreasing the article number, I could access other reports. And guess what it works. You can use this technique and replace “ca” by “bmc” or “oracle” for instance.

Other like “Microsoft” and “sas” are important consumer of Gartner and they have volume like “http://mediaproducts.gartner.com/reprints/microsoft/vol6/article15/article15.html” or “http://mediaproducts.gartner.com/reprints/sas/vol5/article15/article15.html”.

Don’t forget to have a look at the great comments and let me know what you found.
