Welcome to the new-look Computer Weekly, which is the latest result of our ongoing programme of research into the information needs of IT professionals.
We have created a format that delivers a weekly package of intelligence on business technology matters as they impact on the working lives of IT professionals.
Here you will find incisive analysis of the major business and IT stories of the week, in-depth coverage of the most important issues of IT strategy and management, and expert commentary that helps you set the agenda in your own organisations.
We will keep you, as IT business leaders, informed, well in advance, about the technology-based business issues that non-IT senior management will be reading about in the mainstream business and financial press.
Key elements of the new look are: a full picture front cover that captures the major issue of the week clearer page design, highlighting the information and issues that matter most and more prominent treatment of the technology issues that are important to you. One navigation device is a cursor-like arrow, showing the way to more information on computerweekly.com.
We continue to add more and more technical depth to Computer Weekly. In January we added the Business & Technology and Radar sections - now joined by a refreshed Networks section. Business & Technology, which concentrates on one topic each month, focuses primarily on using IT to back up your business, and, secondarily, offers market overviews. Radar looks at incoming technologies, whether out of the labs or near market, and at innovation in corporate IT more generally.
In giving the magazine a refresh, we have been guided by the principle that not all news in the IT space is worth paying attention to in a weekly print format: it needs to be filtered and analysed. The News of the Week section and news analysis pages do this. Computer Weekly's analyses answer the questions behind the news.
We do not aim to be comprehensive, but to select and offer informed point-of-view analysis. Our bedrock is, as ever, to be the champion of the corporate user agenda and of IT professionalism. We stand for clarity of communication in IT-enabled business transformation and beat the drum of the business value of IT.
This new iteration of Computer Weekly has been designed to be an even better companion to the week.
