Readers may have noticed a few more mentions of our Web site, ITWorldCanada.com, in the last couple of issues. This isn’t a coincidence. We want the network professionals who read Network World Canada to know more about our Web site, largely because it’s a much richer source of information than the print edition of NWC can ever hope to be.
Some publication Web sites are mere mirrors of a publication’s print edition. ITWorldCanada.com is a lot more.
In addition to running the hottest IT stories of the day — stories you won’t necessarily find in the print edition of NWC — ITWorldCanada.com features case studies, video interviews, an IT job board that can be used by both employers and employees, technology white papers, reviews of IT products ranging from mobile phones to routers and links to upcoming IT events.
If that’s not enough to convince readers to check the site out, it also contains a number of Knowledge Centres, including Enterprise Infrastructure, Extended Enterprise, Security, E-Government and Wireless and Mobile Computing. If a reader is interested in finding stories on a specific topic, she can just click into the appropriate Knowledge Centre and browse through the stories inside. And if she doesn’t have the time to browse and knows what she’s looking for, she can use the search engine on the front page to sort through thousands of stories housed in the site’s archives.
Another key feature of the site is the Salary Calculator that helps IT professionals figure out how much they should be making based on their job title, industry and location. The information is based on survey results generated from more than 5,000 IT professionals.
Finally, ITWorldCanada.com lets readers post immmediate feedback on articles they’ve read on the site — something no print publication can offer.
Like most Web sites, ITWorldCanada.com is a constant work in progress, so readers should drop by regularly to see what new features and functionality the Web team has
