Taking Stock: An Explanation of the New BizTech

A fresh look and fresh content make the magazine (and soon, its website) even more engaging for readers.

BizTech has always been committed to sharing the stories of business leaders who successfully leverage IT solutions to grow their organizations. Ten years in, that mission hasn’t changed.

But as you’ve surely noticed, this issue, our first of 2014, looks different.

The bones haven’t changed: You’ll still find the in-depth features; how-to tips, trends and tactics articles; product reviews; and big-picture, high-level insights that help busy IT leaders and company executives do their jobs better. But we’ve added some muscle and cosmetic improvements to better engage readers and enhance their BizTech experience — in print and, later this spring, online, optimized for all devices.

Fresh Look, Fresh Content

From cover to cover, there’s more to see, read and discover.

The most obvious change is the aesthetic. We’re still celebrating business IT success stories with big, glossy photos and firsthand accounts of how company leaders made it happen.

But there’s more to every story, and that’s the case here too. Clean, modern font treatments; more callouts to relevant data and online resources; and reader-friendly “quick hits” of useful information — all of these changes will make it easier to consume our content and then apply these peer-tested and proven products, solutions and strategies to your own business operations.

New Dashboard BizTech

It begins with an overhauled Dashboard, where we provide noteworthy business and technology news and insights that you might have missed.

A big change is apparent in the review of the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, which includes a checklist of product specs and callouts to important features, along with a synopsis of the reviewer’s impressions of the tablet after putting it through its paces.

We’ll also continue to report on the best practices that inform and enhance technology deployments of all types. But now, we’ll be showcasing them via rotating departments with more visuals and takeaways. In this issue, for example, we’re introducing a new department called Security Save that details the tools, techniques and ­processes of a particular security “saving the day” for business users.

So, please, take a look and experience what the new and improved BizTech magazine has to offer.
