Ask a question, win a t-shirt through February 9th



Posted by: JennyMack
Contests, ITKE

We’re rewarding great questions on IT Knowledge Exchange by giving away ten t-shirts to good questions asked in the community over the next 30 days. All you have to do is submit a well-thought-out, well-written (and hopefully well-tagged) question to the IT Knowledge Exchange community, and we’ll choose our favorites in time to announce in our newsletter on Tuesday, February 10th.

Remember — if you think a question is well-written, say so! Let us know by e-mailing us or, even better, posting a comment in the discussion.

Need a refresher on how to write a good question? Check out our best questions guide.

Need some examples of great questions? View the winners of past question contests for some ideas.

Happy posting, and good luck!

IT Blogger of the Week – Boche.net



Posted by: JennyMack
IT Blogger of the Week, ITKE

Our featured IT blogger of the week is Jason Boche of Boche.net. Following in the theme of several bloggers we have been covering, Jason’s expertise lies in all things virtualization:

I am a VMware Communities User Moderator, the Minneapolis Area VMware User Group Leader, frequent VMware/VMTN Communities Roundtable podcaster, and contributor to the Petri IT Knowledgebase.

Recently, Jason was one of the first bloggers given permission by VMware to publicly announce the new name for the next generation of VMware Virtual Infrastructure, VMware vSphere. His content is engaging and his opinion is well-respected by many virtualization pros. IT Knowledge Exchange is pleased to feature him here.

IT Knowledge Exchange is a proud sponsor of the 2009 TDWI World Conference Series — below is information pertaining to the first event, taking place in Las Vegas in February.

The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI) has announced it will host its winter 2009 World Conference in Las Vegas, NV, from February 22–27, 2009.

TDWI’s premier BI/DW education event emphasizes a topic on every executive’s mind: how to keep organizations properly aligned and responsive to change in today’s volatile business environment. Courses such as “Agile Project Management” and “Aligning Balanced Scorecard and BI to Optimize Business Performance” aim to provide a holistic approach that allows businesses to align people and projects to deliver agile solutions. The full-day courses will also feature topics in operational BI, insightful analytics, data management, and other business intelligence and data warehousing (BI and DW) disciplines. In addition, the TDWI BI Executive Summit will be co-located at the event in Las Vegas.
