InformationWeek: Connecting The Business Technology Community

InformationWeek is the world's most trusted online community for business technology professionals like you. Our community members include thought-leading CIOs, CTOs, IT VPs and managers, along with hundreds of thousands of other IT professionals. We want you to join us.

This is where senior-level IT buyers and decision-makers come to learn about and share their experiences with products, technologies and technology trends. It's where they get expert advice to manage their people and advance their careers. It's where they come to engage with one another and with InformationWeek editors to embrace new (and big) ideas, find answers to their business technology questions and solve their most pressing problems.

InformationWeek.com encompasses nine technology and vertical communities: Strategic CIO, Software, Cloud, Mobile, Big Data, Security, Infrastructure, Government and Healthcare. Each community leader is a subject matter expert who collaborates with industry gurus, technology managers, researchers, other top technology journalists, consultants, industry analysts and other InformationWeek members to provide timely, accurate and informative articles that lead to spirited discussions.

We challenge community members with strong, even unconventional points of view, backed by hard-nosed reporting, hands-on experience and the professional knowledge that comes only with years of work with established and emerging business technologies.

We want you to be part of this community. Please join us on live chats, story discussions, polls, radio shows, reader-generated discussion boards, newsletters and other interactive features -- all for free. We'll also invite you to live events where we can continue these conversations face-to-face.

Simply register here – it's free – to join the conversation and fully benefit from all the features on this site. If you're interested in participating further, contact our editors – we're always on the lookout for industry thought leaders who'd like to offer their perspectives on technology in their business.

The Agile Archive
When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
