When we published our first article six years ago, “big data” was the buzzword that made IT leaders cringe. Back then, CIOs were shoring up their innovation efforts to avoid another buzzword - being "Ubered.” They were also still coming to terms with what Marc Andreessen’s famous declaration that “software is eating the world” meant for their organizations. 

A lot has changed in enterprise IT since The Enterprisers Project launched on Sept. 16, 2013. The CIO role has taken on new prominence in the C-Suite, and we’ve been documenting the shift, the challenges, and the opportunities along the way. 

We’ve evolved into a full-fledged community publication for CIOs and IT executives, publishing 10-plus articles per week. Those articles are either written by the CIOs or the IT leaders and experts on the front lines of rapid change, or they round up wisdom and experiences from technology and business practitioners. Last week alone, we featured 34 different voices on topics ranging from soft skills needed in the AI age to curbing bias in the IT hiring process

Through the years, hundreds of CIOs, CTOs, and other technology and business experts have opened up to us about how they tackled their toughest challenges.

Through the years, hundreds of CIOs, CTOs, and other technology and business experts have opened up to us about how they tackled their toughest challenges. Each month we vet dozens of article submissions from people who want to use The Enterprisers Project to get their ideas out. Those that make the cut adhere to our editorial guidelines, which emphasize avoiding jargon, sharing original points of view and novel advice, and importantly, are vendor neutral.

There’s no shortage of places to get news and opinions online, and our hope is that you’ll continue to turn to us for real-world experiences and lessons learned from your peers. When we recently asked CIOs to share their tips for keeping current with emerging technology, we were heartened to receive this response from Net Health CIO Jason James:

"First of all, let’s give a shout out to The Enterprisers Project. The real-world insights from IT thought leaders allow me to gain insights about what has worked in their respective organizations without the noise and marketing hype from vendors," James said. 

Bringing you guidance, ideas, and insights from your peers is at the heart of what we do. To better reflect our mission, this week we’ve updated the tagline that describes The Enterprisers Project to: “A community helping CIOs and IT leaders solve problems.”
