UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM Launches IT Migration Zone for Upgrade-Minded Windows Professionals

Sponsored by Dell, ITMZ's English, French, and German editions will address client, server, application, mobility, and security issues of Windows OS upgrades

Aug 15, 2012

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM announced the launch of IT Migration Zone, which consists of English-, French-, and German-language editions for IT executives and professionals navigating a Windows transition in the datacenter, on the desktop, or in the field.

IT Migration Zone is a new, trilingual community that can help IT professionals foresee the obstacles that can bring a migration screeching to a halt – and find ways around them. IT Migration Zone will feature best-practices and case studies of successful migrations, completed on time and on budget. And the community will also examine effective ways to obtain buy-in from users and provide them with the tools and training they need to adapt, while also making the migration invisible to the customer.

IT Migration Zone will address all parts of the Windows migration equation – client, server, application, network management, mobility/wireless, and security.

Veteran IT journalist Susan Fogarty was named Editor in Chief. She has written about information technology, networking, and enterprise business issues for a variety of audiences.

"As a highly interactive community, IT Migration Zone is designed to foster the sort of debates and discussions that truly matter to today's business technology decision maker," Fogarty said. "In addition to community-contributed content, we'll include a rich slate of material written by real-world IT professionals with actual experience in purchasing, running, deploying, and managing technology in business."

The site is published by UBM TechWeb and UBM DeusM. Dell is the exclusive sponsor.
