Farewell to E2, but Not Goodbye

Susan Nunziata
For more than four years, EnterpriseEfficiency.com (E2) has been the best IT community on the Internet. As with all good things, soon our time together here will end.

As of May 31, the E2 party will be over. But fear not. Just like the Oscars or the Grammys, the best parties always have the best after-parties. In fact, in this case, you're invited to two after-parties: Dell Tech Page One, where you can find news and analytics from the Dell Inc. editorial team; and IT Strategy, the new community on InformationWeek.com where all your favorite E2 editors will be hanging out.

Tech Page One is a rich source of information for professionals who place a high value on technology that enables their lives. It covers enterprise technology, business, and a bit of gadget-geek culture. Whether you’re exploring topics like modernizing the datacenter, turning big data into usable insights, or how IT is reshaping healthcare, Tech Page One has you covered.

Our longtime E2 editorial team of Susan Nunziata, Curtis Franklin Jr., and David Wagner, along with all our valued contributors, will be hosting the after-party at our new home: IT Strategy on InformationWeek.com. Our own Sara Peters will also be dropping in as she can; Sara's en route to IT Security stardom with her new gig at our sister publication Dark Reading.

IT Strategy will feature the CIOs and other tech leaders you’ve come to know and love here in our E2 community. But that's not all. The IT Strategy community will throw open its doors and invite the rest of the C-suite into the party. Together, we can talk about how your technology choices impact the business, and how business is affecting the way you make technology decisions.

In the next few days, you’ll see tributes to E2 from our editors, our contributors, and our community members. What always made E2 strongest is you: the people who read our content and listen to our radio shows, join our live chats and comment on our posts, and openly share professional struggles with us on a daily basis. You made E2 the best community around. For that we’re grateful. As we move on to our new home, IT Strategy on InformationWeek.com, we welcome you to join us there and keep our community going strong.

Don't think of this as an ending. Rather, it's two new beginnings. From the foundation of E2, you have two resources at your disposal, each with its own unique content: Dell Tech Page One and IT Strategy.

Thank you for more than four years of sharing your personal and professional lives with us here at Enterprise Efficiency. We feel proud to be a part of this amazing community. We look forward to seeing you at the after-parties.

Re: So E2 is going places...HAPPY
I too am actually excited about Dell's Tech Page One.  I've already seen some really interesting content there that I've missed elsewhere among the many -- many -- tech sites I check.

Re: migrating the content
@Hospice: Fear not.  No matter what ultimately winds up happening to the content, there's always the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.  You can use that to find stuff that was taken offline YEARS ago.

Re: onward and upward
Incidentally, what is happening to the URL?  Once the migration of content presumably happens to IW, will it go up for sale?  Can I buy it?  :)

Re: It's not goodbye, E2!
@Sara... A suggestion: How about a different wig for each topic you write about?  Pink for news of a recent security breach, blonde for the cloud, brunette for Windows migration, etc.
Joe Stanganelli   Farewell to E2, but Not Goodbye   6/1/2014 3:43:38 AM
Party!
That's a good way to look at it, Susan!  On from one party to the next!  Reminds me of that neverending party from Douglas Adams's Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Re: See ya --- somewhere else
@Broadway,

And to add to your comment....if everyone is as enthusiastic as you are,  the community will keep on going :)

Re: See ya --- somewhere else
This anxiety I feel won't recede, I fear, until E2 fully moves over to the new site and the community remains intact. That ultimately is what has made E2 so special these 4 yrs. The community. If that doesn't disappear, I won't disappear!

Re: onward and upward
@impactnow,

To add to your comment,

The rich content that has been shared in all radio and video shows is something that many other similar sites should emulated, since it shows how fare collaborating and sharing insights and opinions can make.

Re: See ya --- somewhere else
@tinym,

"You guys have done a great job building a community around interesting (and useful) information. "

Truer workds could not have been mentioned. The quality of the content, and the active participation from all members, with response that have a great deal of substance, have been of great benefit.

Re: Adieu E2!
@Lufu,

"Always informative, always engaging, and always a fresh edge and viewpoint."

I think it's the best set of words to sum up my experience with E2.

As I once had expresed to the site editorial team....being part of the community actually helped me obtain a better job opportunity :)

Google's Chrome OS has a lot of potential value and a lot of recent press, but it still needs something to make it more than a thin client. It needs cloud integration, it needs extended APIs via web services, and it needs to suck it up and support a hard drive.
