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.

Re: Welcome To Our E2 Community
@Zerox203: So great to see you here, and thank you so much for the kind words and for all you did to contribute to the e2 community with your insights and your experiences and your sense of humor. We have a place for all that here and so much more. Being at IWK, we have access to the entire breadth and depth and scope of coverage that is much more than we could ever do on E2--we encourage you to get to know some of our new colleages and community members here, and assure you that you'll find us commenting on a whole range of topics here, including a lot of the hardware and software topics our expert peers here are writing about.

If there are particular topics or specific types of hardware you want to know more about, let us know and we're happy to connect you with the subject matter experts here at IWK.

Re: E2 meets Information Week
@vnewman2: Ha, such meetings are the bane to our existence. Thank you so  much for all the kind words about our radio shows. Our "golden voice of E2 radio" has been dispatched to SAP Sapphire this week, so we won't be hearing him on air. But we do have a show tomorrow on ageism in IT: http://add.vc/g0ci

We'll be there, hope you can join us and help spread the word--it's a topic that should be of interest to many within and outside our community here.

Re: Welcome To Our E2 Community
Hey, that's me! Always good to be welcomed somewhere. I think it counts as thanks, which as Dave explains in his post about Pizza, is very important to have once in a while. I didn't really share my thoughts on E2's closing over there too much, but it does feel like the end of an era. I can't really put a number on just how much I learned over there, and how much I felt like I was tapping into a source of limitless IT knowledge and experience. I was there since the day E2 opened, and it certainly does feel like four years have gone by in the blink of an eye... but looking back on how much I've learned, that number suddenly sounds a little more realistic.

That mix of nuts-and-bolts technology info and management/big-picture lessons is hard to come by on the blogosphere, and it was great feeling like I could learn about what a new technology was, and then how to use it (from a management perspective) in the same day. To that end, I personally would love to see you guys keep up a little of the hardware info here on IW. I'm a hardware/gadget guy myself, and you're much more likely to find me breaking a perfectly good server than reading a white paper. Strategy and inter-office politics are important themselves (and indeed, they may be what people like me need to learn about the most), but I'd love to see a good mix going forward. I'll see you guys around!
