Since the UK’s number one business technology publication was acquired in April by Techtarget, the number one US online publisher of technology websites, we have been working on a major IT migration project to completely redesign our website and transfer all our articles to a new content management system and publishing platform.
A total redesign of the look and feel of the site was combined with migrating tens of thousands of online article and images, accumulated since ComputerWeekly.com was first created in 1999.
Now, as part of the Techtarget network of technology sites, Computerweekly.com can claim to be the number one UK business technology website, offering UK IT professionals a unique combination of IT strategy news and information, plus in-depth technical content from our sister sites.
All the high-quality news, analysis, opinion, features, blogs, photo stories and videos that our readers have come to expect are still the core of the new site, but now we can offer an even wider range of articles from across the Techtarget network.
In the coming months, we will publish a regular stream of focused technology guides, combining all the information on key IT topics from across the Techtarget network. From a single page, UK IT managers and IT professionals will be able to access the latest news and features on strategic technology trends, plus practical, technical content for those readers requiring more detailed information.
ComputerWeekly.com readers can also access the Bitpipe whitepaper library – one of the largest collections of IT industry whitepapers in the world, with the latest reports, case studies and technical information from key IT vendors.
We have plans in place to release further new functionality for the site in 2012, and with the backing of our new owner, Computerweekly.com will continue to meet the information needs of UK IT professionals and IT managers throughout the lifecycle of their technology strategy, purchasing, projects, implementation and support.
Our migration project has been a major undertaking – the biggest technology project ever experienced by Computer Weekly. We have followed agile development methods to create the new site, working with an international development team in the UK and US, integrating cloud-based technologies to bring the latest features and functions to our readers.
Like many of the best agile projects, there may be a few bugs and problems here and there on the new website, but we will address them in future development iterations – if you spot any such issues, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Enjoy the new site – and let us know what you think.
