* Welcome to the new-look Network World Fusion

My colleagues on Network World Fusion have been hard at work putting together a redesign of the Web site. What has emerged is a one-stop-shop for all your network/IT educational and community needs.

Let’s start at the top. The first thing you’ll notice is the attention paid to research centers. Topics such as Applications, Careers, LANs, Storage and Wireless/Mobile each have their own hub of information. Click into these research centers and you’ll find a tremendous wealth of information, ranging from articles and white papers to how-tos and other features.

Our top-notch editors have each taken on these research centers as a sort of a home base, so you can follow their reporting via their Weblogs. They’ll post product announcements, trends they are noticing, insights from events they are attending – you name it, it’s in there. They also offer up resources that they happen upon so that you have instant access to the best information available on the Web.

These research centers are worth bookmarking as the links are constantly updated and provide and a great jumping off point for most of your fact-finding missions.

Just below the research center links on the tool bar, you’ll find even more content links that get you quickly to different parts of the site – news, reviews, buyer’s guides, opinions, etc.

Some great features to note here: our ever-increasing encyclopedia of networking and IT terminology and case studies. You’ll also find how-tos and primers that let you read firsthand how your peers have tackled the challenges of new technology.

The folks on Fusion have even made finding events in your local area a breeze. Just look at the top of the page under the Network World Fusion logo and you’ll see a drop-down menu for events. There you can choose between events, executive forums and Webcasts. All chances to learn new things and network with your peers.

If you haven’t had a chance to do so yet, make sure you tool around the redesigned site and get familiar with some of the improvements. As always, feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think at Happy surfing!
