Maven for Information Technology Professionals
Technical Expertise On Demand
We seem to have reached the golden age of information technology. Almost every day there is a new tool available to help you and your organization succeed… but how do you separate the game changers from the also-ran’s? From the smallest widgets to the biggest pieces of infrastructure, we help information technology professionals find the right solutions for their specific situations. We have the world’s largest pool of on-demand IT expertise ready to help you choose your next solution wisely.
Don’t Reinvent the Wheel
Are you facing a difficult problem or unique situation? Chances are, someone has been there before. Use Maven to find them and get their help so you can fix it and move on. Don’t waste time reinventing the wheel when all you need is a little guidance from another professional who is ready, willing, and able to help you.
The Right Solution Instead of the Easy Solution
They say you’ll never get fired for hiring the guys with the blue logo, yet sometimes you just know they’re not the right choice. So how do you convince the powers that be that the other guys will do it better? Connect with peers who can provide the social proof you need to make your case and get the right decision made.
Cut Through the Noise
That new vendor’s pitch really wowed you, and you think you’ve found a winner. Their solution appears to check all of the boxes, and they have provided some solid references, but you wish you could talk their other customers (not just the ones they have trained to say nice things about them). Guess what – you can! Use Maven to get the straight story from people who have used the product and seen the technology in action, so you can cut through the noise and make the right decision.

Getting a company of that size to add a new tool to their shed is not easy, but with the insights we gathered from your Mavens, we were able to confidently develop an action plan for deployment. Our customer is happy and so are we.Senior Project Manager
If we had continued down our previous path, the results would have been disastrous. Only through our interactions with the Mavens were we able to see our mistake and fix it.Senior Manager, IT Products & Services
End user testing is very challenging. Finding the right set of testers is difficult, and even when you do find them it is tough to remain objective about their feedback when you know them personally. Maven solved both of these problems. They quickly assembled the right group of Know Your Customer compliance experts and the anonymous Survey approach helped us to get unbiased results.Senior Product Design Engineer
