I am very happy to announce the launch of Network Computing Pro. NWC Pro is a subscription service with access to more than 450 technical analyst reports covering topics in application optimization, cloud computing, data center, storage, virtualization, wireless and more. Written by our cadre of Network Computing real-world experts and InformationWeek Analytics analysts, Network Computing Pro is the ultimate resource for IT, by IT.
Currently, Network Computing Pro is hosted on its own site, pro.networkcomputing.com. It's devoid of advertising, so nothing gets between you and the content you need most. We selected key analyst reports and articles from our Analytics practice and made them available via subscription. We plan on adding new services and new types of content as we build out the site. You can search topics and report types, see all the content by an author, vote on content quality, and interact with peers and the authors. The site should be easy to navigate, putting the experience and knowledge of our experts at your fingertips.
Our reports focus on industry trends and IT strategies that keep you current on critical IT issues, and provide depth and breadth to help you with IT strategy and tactical decisions. The majority of our analysts work or consult with IT organizations, and bring a wealth of real-world, practical experience to their articles. For example, Mike Healy explores the state of cloud computing in 2011, highlighting key areas "that IT must focus on to avert problems: integration, security, connectivity, monitoring, continuity planning and long-term staffing." Kurt Marko, meanwhile, explains what you will need to run SharePoint 2010 in your organization.
As we move forward, we'll add more reports to Network Computing Pro so you can keep abreast of IT trends. When you need a deep dive, you can come back for more. This is just a first step in making Network Computing an expert resource. If you have any questions, comments, wants, needs or desires, please leave a comment or send an e-mail.
