Decisions also get harder to make, rarely reaching your doorstep unless they are complex. Very few peers within an organization can grasp the full scope of business and technical considerations that a CIO must weigh. Having access to an online network of peer IT executives to learn from can be incredibly helpful.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) March 22, 2006
ITtoolbox, the online community enabling professional IT knowledge sharing, today announced the launch of the ITtoolbox CIO Knowledge Base (http://CIO.ITtoolbox.com). This new Web site connects thousands of IT executives with their peers, allowing them to communicate with one another in a professional and unbiased environment to share information and experiences. Through this process, executives responsible for their company's IT departments can make better decisions and do so more confidently by learning from others facing similar challenges.
"The higher up you get in the decision making process, the greater the impact each decision has," said Dan Morrison, ITtoolbox CEO and co-founder. "Decisions also get harder to make, rarely reaching your doorstep unless they are complex. Very few peers within an organization can grasp the full scope of business and technical considerations that a CIO must weigh. Having access to an online network of peer IT executives to learn from can be incredibly helpful."
The CIO Knowledge Base was created in response to an increasing level of collaboration among C-level community members throughout other parts of the ITtoolbox network. More than 30% of current ITtoolbox users identify themselves as executive level or IT decision makers. This new knowledge base provides them with a platform for the open exchange of knowledge.
Modeled after 27 existing ITtoolbox Knowledge Bases, the CIO Knowledge Base includes:
- Blogs featuring first-hand experiences from C-level professionals
- Peer discussion groups on strategy and planning, vendor selection, and project management
- Hiring and salary trends from the IT community
- Executive employment opportunities
This new online community can be visited at http://CIO.ITtoolbox.com.
