Enterprise Software:

Hardware, Software and Services:
Hewlett Packard shows it's possible to offer a wide variety of products and still get high marks.

Networking:
Cisco continues to dominate this category, coming in first five years in a row.

PDAs:
Palm's plummeting scores allow RIM to widen its lead in this category.

Security:
IT executives think highly of their security firms, but none more than VeriSign and Check Point Software.

Telecommunications:
Reliability ratings improved in this low-scoring sector, but there's still plenty of room for improvement. T-Mobile beat out Verizon Wireless for the top spot.

Industry Leaders:
