joins TechRepublic has now become part of TechRepublic

It's official - has now merged with TechRepublic, so allow me to extend a warm welcome to all the readers who are now joining TechRepublic. Please make yourselves at home!

TechRepublic and have always shared the same mission: to help business leaders take smart tech decisions that make their organisation more effective and successful.

That means that together, and TechRepublic can offer expert reporting, original and exclusive content from CIOs and other IT professionals and peer-to-peer advice, all aimed at helping IT executives excel.

As part of the merger, much of's signature content - from our popular Cheat Sheets to the respected CIO Jury - has moved over to TechRepublic, plus our team in London will be bringing you the hottest news and features out of the UK and the rest of Europe.

We've already set up two new sections on TechRepublic, which I'd urge you to take a look at:

First up, the CIO Insights section looks at the world of IT from the point of view of the CIO, CTO, IT director and other senior business and technology decision-makers. This section is also home to's Cheat Sheets, and the CIO Jury.

We've opened up the CIO Jury to CIOs across the globe, so that the new CIO Jury will now bring you the opinions of CIOs worldwide. If you'd like to get involved with the CIO Jury, follow this link to find out how.

The CIO50 - now in its sixth year - will also be moving to TechRepublic. We'll be bringing you more news on that development later this year.

Secondly, the European Technology section on TechRepublic covers the big enterprise technology news from the UK and mainland Europe - and what it means for you.
