The new Ziff Davis
In the wake of the sale to Insight Venture Partners, the remaining eWeek staffers are enjoying a boost in morale, according to Jim. Debt free and with the promise of investment from the new owners, things are looking up. Expect the staff to grow and note the following changes already in place:
The priority for Jim is ensuring that the reviews approach brings a full enterprise focus to the product.
It's a monster: (web authoring and development tools, multimedia development, document and content management, portals and knowledge management, browsers, commerce and B2B applications, application servers, web servers, general labs questions) but Jim points out that most of the bullet items on the list aren't constantly being released. "It's part of the job. You have to get the product in and get it tested." He also adds that with such a senior team he relies on them to tell what what products are interesting and recommends PR pros go directly to them on products in their area of expertise.
