Leaving InformationWeek SMB, And Introducing Enterprise Efficiency!

As regular readers of InformationWeek SMB may have noticed, I haven't been around much lately. That's because for the past few weeks, I've been hard at work at a brand new TechWeb "skunkworks" project called Enterprise Efficiency, or E2, which launched last Friday.

As regular readers of InformationWeek SMB may have noticed, I haven't been around much lately. That's because for the past few weeks, I've been hard at work at a brand new TechWeb "skunkworks" project called Enterprise Efficiency, or E2, which launched last Friday.I'm tremendously excited about the new site, a unique community where enterprise CIOs and other business technology leaders and executive decision makers can share peer guidance, news and analysis, and best practices on the strategic uses of technology in the enterprise.

We've already gathered an impressive collection of more than 20 bloggers, including CIOs, CEOs, analysts, consultants, journalists, and other leaders with a wide range of IT backgrounds and areas of expertise. Even more remarkable, in just its first few days of operation, Enterprise Efficiency has already attracted more than 200 comments to our message boards! Come visit today!

But don't worry, InformationWeek SMB remains in good hands. That's because Ben Tomkins has returned as site editor, supported by InformationWeek.com editor-in-chief Alex Wolfe and the rest of the InformationWeek team.

The impact of their efforts will become more and more apparent as InformationWeek SMB becomes more closely integrated into InformationWeek. With Ben and Alex at the helm, I look forward with real excitement to the continued evolution of InformationWeek SMB.

Even as I transition to my new project, though, I want to express my appreciation to everyone involved in the site I co-founded almost 3 years ago as bMighty.com. Building the site and covering the technology needs of small and midsize businesses has been an honor and a privilege for me. In particular, InformationWeek SMB has allowed me to

1. Meet and learn from scores of talented, smart, committed SMB business and IT folks. Despite massive challenges and often minuscule budgets, they often found ways to out innovate and out maneuver much larger, better financed companies.

2. Work with a team of great editors and writers who made InformationWeek SMB the success it continues to be. 3. Follow the ongoing evolution of SMB technology vendors from relying on dumbed-down versions of enterprise products or tarted-up rebrands of consumer options to creating increasing numbers of products designed specifically to meet the needs of SMBs.

I salute you all!
