3coast announced the release of its business technology blog. The new blog focuses on providing insight into enterprise resource planning (ERP), addressing CIO projects like business continuity planning and answering tough questions about aligning business processes with technology.
“The 3coast Blog is a forum to share insight on leveraging technology to solve business pain and drive competitive advantage,” said George Black, president and CEO of 3coast. “Our goal is to engage our audience in real conversations and offer practical solutions and advice.”
The blog, found at www.3coast.com/blog, will function like an interactive magazine. Eight sections focus on specific, technology-related topics and encourage readers to post feedback and questions. One section, Ask 3coast, prompts readers to ask detailed questions about their business pains or technology issues and promises to provide feedback on their situation. Other sections include ERP Insight, CIO Center, Business & Technology, Virtualization, IT Staffing, Outsourcing IT and Web 2.0.
3coast executives and thought leaders take turns writing articles each week. Readers can expect to see articles such as:
- “10 Steps to Outsourcing IT”
- “Building Trusting Client Relationships to Mitigate Business Risk”
- “How Accurate is Information from the Digital Oilfield?”
- “What is Virtualization? And How Does it Reduce IT Costs?”
“3coast has many interesting, insightful and fun personalities, who are excited to share business technology thought leadership,” said Stephen Sweeney, chief operating officer of 3coast. “We look forward to the dialogue between 3coast and those who are as passionate about technology and business as we are.”
