May 23, 2012

NEW YORK, May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM today launched Future of Work Enabled, an online community for chief information officers, other senior IT executives, and the business unit leaders who are deeply involved in technology initiatives that will support organizational changes in how corporations and individual employees successfully get work done in an era of globalization, universal connectivity, and a workforce born in the digital age.

The site is a leading provider of information and analysis on the future of work amid changes brought on by the convergence of multiple technology and social forces. It is a community that engages insightful voices and opinions to shed light on the important issues surrounding the impact of technology on work, and a vehicle for IT executives and their partners to seek the advice and guidance of their peers. Daily blogs and busy message boards will be complemented by regular live chats and Webcasts about technical, managerial, and cultural issues that engage enterprise professionals implementing mobile strategies, big-data initiatives, social media conversations, and work by employees and external business partners around the world.

Experienced technology journalist James Connolly was named editor in chief. In an almost 30-year career as a technology journalist, he has written about the use of technology at the enterprise level, IT management, and emerging technologies. His experience includes work with The IT Services Site, TechTarget, Mass High Tech, and Computerworld.  

"This site isn't just about technology, but how tech is changing the very culture of the corporate world. This is a community where we invite our members and expert writers to share ideas, opinions, experiences, and concerns," says Connolly. "No matter what challenge our members face, they know that someone else in the community has shared their experience. We are the vehicle that will pull them together."

The site is published by UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM.
