NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Tech today named accomplished journalists James Connolly and David Wagner to lead the editorial team for the three-year-old website and online community All Analytics.

Connolly, who was named editor-in-chief, previously had been executive editor on A2 and editor of other UBM Tech properties such as Storage Acceleration, The Enterprise Cloud Site, Big Data Republic, and The Future of Work Enabled. He has more than 30 years of experience in technology publishing, having been an editor with organizations including Computerworld, TechTarget, and Mass High Tech.

Wagner, who was named community editor for All Analytics, previously had been a community editor with UBM Tech's Enterprise Efficiency and InformationWeek, where he has authored the site's Geekend column. Before joining Enterprise Efficiency, he was an assistant editor at MIT Sloan Management Review, where he covered a wide range of business topics including IT, leadership, and innovation. He has also been a freelance writer for many top consulting firms and academics in the business and technology sectors.

A2 founding editor Beth Schultz has been promoted to a new role with UBM's No Jitter and Enterprise Connect properties.

All Analytics (, sponsored by SAS, provides a forum for senior enterprise executives and managers who lead analytics and big data initiatives to exchange ideas with their peers and to learn from and interact with industry leaders. Analytics professionals join the community discussions through daily blogs, A2 radio shows, message boards, polls, and social media outlets such as Google+ Hangouts and a LinkedIn group.

"Interest in the use of big data analytics to improve corporate performance and build closer relationships with customers has been booming. There is a wealth of opportunity for businesses, government agencies, and non-profits to bring dramatic change to their operations, whether they are delivering better services, finding operational efficiencies, or developing new products," said Connolly. "At All Analytics our goal is to help analytics professionals share best-practices and to learn from others in a true peer-to-peer community."

David Wagner noted, "I look forward to joining the great community at All Analytics. The community is what makes the difference between A2 and other sites. The members share a wealth of knowledge that can only come from years of working with data every day. That knowledge and the wonderful stable of writers make for an unbeatable combination, and I look forward to being a part of that long legacy."
