What’s the Purpose of White Papers?

White papers discuss a specific business issue, product, or competitive situation. In many cases, they summarize information about a topic, for example the results of a survey or study and then suggest a proposal for action, with the research data providing the justification for the action.

White Papers share technical knowledge and business information with others in the same field; for example, CIOs who are interested in how to use web services with Ecommerce applications.
