It's a gain for some, but

fall for many, while few associations have maintained their previous

rank. As the IDC IT channel associations' survey 2010 opened its

pandora box, Mumbai's TAIT scored a hat-trick and grabbed the top

position once again, while the induction of new organizations in the

study has been appreciated.

IDC, one of the leading

research firms of the country has conducted a research of 48 IT

channel associations throughout the country. Cochin-based All Kerela

IT Dealers Association has been ranked 4th. It has made a significant

jump from the previous year's 13th rank, while it was at 33rd

position in the 2008 study. AKITDA has been rated high on membership

growth, timely election, internal meeting, updating the website and

social activities. On the other hand, Dehradun Uttaranchal IT Trade

Association (UITTA) has been ranked 17th this year while IDC rated it

at 30th position in 2009. It has been ranked well on analyst

evaluation and members' feedback. Speaking to The DQ Week,

Vikas Dewan, Secretary, UITTA said that, the 13 points gain in the

IDC survey is a good sign, which can be attributed to the

channel-centric activities. "We are getting back to track and

getting good response from the IT channel community, as well as from

the OEM vendors. The mega event, IT Vision- 2011 is a testimonial to

our significant growth over the last few years," said Dewan.

Associations from cities

like Patna, Lucknow, Indore, Trivandrum, Panipat, Madurai and Trichy

are among those, which demonstrated negative growth in the survey.

Indore-based Madhya Pradesh Telecom and Computer Trader Association

has dipped significantly from the previous year's ranking of 12. It

got the 29th rank with relatively lower score in analyst evaluation

mainly on awareness programs and social activities. Bihar IT

Association (BITA) has declined to 13 positions from last year's

ranking and now stands on 40th position. It has secured

average score on members' feedback. On the analyst evaluation part it

has secured low scores on parameters like internal meeting frequency,

awareness programs, social activities and website updation.

Madurai-based Computer and

Media Society (CAMS), Computers Dealers Association of Trivandrum

(CDAT), Panipat Computer Dealers Association (PCDA) and Association

for Computer Traders Trichy demonstrated a decline o style="background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">f
