Welcome To Our E2 Community

We're delighted to welcome our beloved E2 community as we integrate with our colleagues and the community members at InformationWeek.

If you're joining us here from EnterpriseEfficiency.com, let me extend a hearty welcome to our new home, InformationWeek's IT Strategy community. If you're with us because you're a longtime InformationWeek reader, we're thrilled to engage with you.

I'm Susan Nunziata, most recently director of editorial for EnterpriseEfficiency.com, one of the longest-running community sites owned by UBM Tech, InformationWeek's parent company. Joining me now on InformationWeek are my former E2 editorial colleagues Curtis Franklin and David Wagner.

We're joining forces with the accomplished InformationWeek editors and writers you've come to know and value. We look forward to engaging with all of you in the InformationWeek community, including the news writers and commentators you see here with us today on the IT Strategy page.

Together, we'll bring you more of the kinds of unique IT Strategy coverage and perspectives you've come to value on InformationWeek. We'll also join you on the comment boards to share our insights and trade stories about our experiences.

Over the next few weeks, we'll feature the CIOs, CTOs, and other IT leaders who've written and participated on EnterpriseEfficiency.com, including David Fletcher, CTO of the State of Utah; Larry Bonfante, founder of CIO Bench Coach; Andrew Froehlich, network engineer and IT consultant; and Brien Posey, former CIO. But that's not all. The InformationWeek IT Strategy community will throw open its doors and invite the rest of the C-suite into the party, discussing how technology choices impact the marketing, finance, and other departments, and how those departments are changing the way IT decisions are made.

InformationWeek has started a weekly radio show, a Q&A and chat format to which E2 community members are accustomed, and we're delighted to invite you to join us on those shows featuring a wide range of top-notch guests. You can find the InformationWeek Radio agenda for the next several weeks here.

In the meantime, our longtime E2 colleague Sara Peters, former editor in chief of the site, has joined our sister site Dark Reading, where she'll be writing about and conducting radio and video interviews on the hottest information security topics. We look forward to having Sara drop in and join us here from time to time, as well.

This is an exciting new opportunity for all of us, and we're delighted to welcome you to the beginning of a new era for our beloved E2 community as we integrate with our colleagues and the community members at InformationWeek.

Now, let's get talking. Which IT Strategy topics matter most to you? Which challenges can we help you overcome, and which questions can we help you answer as you develop your own IT strategies? We're here for you.

Our InformationWeek Elite 100 issue -- our 26th ranking of technology innovators -- shines a spotlight on businesses that are succeeding because of their digital strategies. We take a close at look at the top five companies in this year's ranking and the eight winners of our Business Innovation awards, and we offer 20 great ideas that you can use in your company. We also provide a ranked list of our Elite 100 innovators. Read our InformationWeek Elite 100 issue today.

Susan Nunziata works closely with the site's content team and contributors to guide topics, direct strategies, and pursue new ideas, all in the interest of sharing practicable insights with our community. Nunziata was most recently Director of Editorial for ... View Full Bio

Re: E2 meets Information Week
@Henrisha: yes, many familiar names are here! I hope we will find all our entire E2 community on this site. I expect that it will just be a transfer across platforms, the same interaction and vibe among us will continue.

Re: E2 meets Information Week
It's nice to see so many familiar names and faces here. Happy to see that a lot of people from the old community are here. :-) I'm definitely hoping the radio shows continue, too, those were one of the features that I looked forward to regularly.

Potential Topics
If you're asking for what we would like to see at our new home, here are some ideas...take 'em, leave 'em. I won't be insulted! Hope this of benefit

- comparative pieces which show the differences between verticals for use of IT, purposes, policies, etc., i.e., healthcare vs. financial services, government vs.everyone. Compare and contrast, and where are the benefits and the downsides. What can be learned, what will change, what will stay the same.

- a running  tab every 6 months on "new positions" -- jobs that didn't exist x years ago that exist now, and how they keeps changing. Ditto how current jobs have changed by technology. What positions are hot, which ones are not -- based on need and marketplace gyrations.

- case studies, perhaps turning some of those interviews into "how we did it" or "what we faced" and putting a company name on it, the challenges, and the outcomes. Include Best Practices

- startups on the cusp of breaking out that will impact parts of IT from Cloud to Security to UX, etc. CIOs making deals with startups, adapting new startup technologies, etc.

- "Out of the Box" -- a monthly example of "out of the box" thinking somewhere in IT -- anywhere in IT -- something someone did, or a team did, that was different, out of the norm. Did it work? Not work? Why? Can be exapanded to "out of the box" thinking in digital technology in general. Might be fruitful to future IT actions. Not as literate and wonderful as "Geekend," but along those lines.

Re: E2 meets Information Week
I really hope that the E2 Radio shows continue, I know that there are InformationWeek radio shows too but they never quite seem to fit my schedule.  Many more of the E2 times fit better for me and I enjoy your ability to find guests that can carry a conversation.  Sadly that can be tough in the tech world.

Re: I would also like to discuss the results from the OCEG's GRC report on Tech Strategy
Ashish, 

How on this world can you remember all your user names? :/ 

That survey seems to be interesting. Yes, Tech strategy is super interesting.

Re: E2's Welcome Party
Susan, 

I have the suspicion that the party will go on all the weekend. :D We need more cake and tea.

I haven't spotted additional Susans for the Band yet. SueF is the only one next door. There is a Susan on EETimes. :D

Did you manage to move the E2 content here?

Re: First Post- E2 Guru
Yes, Technorati, you were right. And also, yes, it feels like home already, just with a new decoration and neighbors all around. :D

Did you notice that SusanN called you Technorati as well? How nice. :)
