The data for this quantitative study was collected in an online survey conducted during July 2016. A total of 500 business and IT executives (aka customers or end users) participated in the survey. The overall margin of sampling error yielded a 95% confidence rate, +/- 4.5 percentage points. The sampling error is larger for data subgroups.
As with any survey, the sampling error is only one source of possible error. While non-sampling error cannot be accurately calculated, precautionary steps were taken in all phases of the survey design, collection and data processing to minimize its influence.
