The Financial Times launched “The Connected Business,” Sept. 23 on FT.com and will feature it monthly in a pull-out section of the print edition beginning on Sept. 29, when it replaces the FT‘s Digital Business section.
By highlighting the latest IT trends, products and strategies, the section aims to provide an understanding of how businesses can benefit from information technology.
The online service will combine news, analysis, commentary, videos and interactive features from FT journalists and guest contributors. The newspaper features will focus on how IT can best be applied to different aspects of a business, addressing a new area each month.
The Connected Business will be edited by Paul Taylor, U.S. telecommunications editor and technology correspondent for the FT, who will continue his weekly technology review column online.
“Senior executives often struggle to find time to exchange ideas with CIOs and IT managers, causing them to be left out of vital information that could help their companies operate more efficiently,” Taylor said in a statement. “The Connected Business will fill this void by providing constructive and accessible insight that can be applied to businesses across virtually all industries.”
