This forum is also about engaging the widest spectrum of discussion on IT. This time we talk with powerhouse Editorial Director, Martin Slofstra, of the IT Business Group.
I enjoyed our chat since Martin brings a unique perspective on the industry and what matters to IT pros. Martin will share his insights every month in the IT Managers Connection. I invite you to post your comments here or send me an e-mail at email@example.com.

I do more online than off so the trends make sense. Getting Martin's viewpoint is useful and I want to hear more.
Edge fits the bill for managers though I would like to see more future technology roadmaps
