We are excited about the possibilities the new site delivers to our membership
Calgary, AB (PRWEB) August 28, 2008
The Integration Consortium (IC) announces the launch of their new social network website designed to bring the global community of professionals to the desktop and build business value from a network of collaboration in a trusted setting.
The mission of the new website is to provide a single location where people have the opportunity to gather relevant information on integration practices and technology working towards achieving the goal of establishing an Integration Body of Knowledge (IBOK) for integration as a distinct discipline.
"We are excited about the possibilities the new site delivers to our membership," states John Schmidt, Chairman of the IC. 'It was created so that individuals with similar interests can easily exchange experiences and ideas related to all the specialties in the field of enterprise integration such as Service Oriented Architecture, Integration Competency Centers, Business Intelligence, Data Governance, Enterprise Architecture and middleware."
"Last month, visitors to the IC website represented nearly 50 countries from North America to South America, Europe, Asia & the Middle East", says Leanne MacDonald, IC Executive Director. "The IC is a global organization and so, we required a website that would allow members to be active 24/7. Reaction to the new site has been outstanding and we are thrilled with the increased level of member participation."
The site offers access to a news release section, 500+ case studies & whitepapers, blogs, event listings, resources, Chapter groups, technology specific groups and much more -- all dedicated to integration, architecture issues and best practices.
