Singapore (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
Asia's leading Enterprise IT publisher, Fairfax Business Media Asia (FBM Asia), is significantly expanding its digital information services anchored at its MIS Asia web portal (http://www.mis-asia.com).
Eight new, specifically-targeted weekly eNewsletters, providing niche industry, geography and technology-specific market intelligence and information, will be available to subscribers before the end of the year.
FBM Asia's Director and Publisher, Andrew Smart, said the new eNewsletters stem from considered market research and subscriber feedback. They would also mark the resurrection of the MIS tech brand after a three-year hiatus.
Smart said the expansion of digital publishing, which currently accounts for 25% of revenues, was part of the ongoing re-balancing of FBM Asia's operations, which includes events, research, digital and web publishing and the production of its print titles.
"This expansion of our digital services aims to provide subscribers with more niche information in the way they've said they want it," Smart said. "Our subscribers and readers have told us they want these specific areas covered and we have listened and taken action.
"The new eNewsletters will provide examples of management best practice, outline new research and trends, air expert opinion, provide access to focused blog discussions and keep IT executive subscribers informed and competitive within their jobs."
Four new eNewsletters will be available from 13 October 2009, in the first phase of the FBM's digital expansion. Subscriptions to FBM eNewsletters can be registered at -
