GCN broadens coverage, merges sections

Beginning with this issue, GCN consolidates two long-standing sections'Desktop Computing and Enterprise Computing'into one Enterprise Computing section.

The new section, starting on Page 27 of this issue, will have the same number of pages and editorial column inches as the two previous sections did.

The more expansive layout, however, will let GCN do more in-depth agency application stories and technology trend pieces.

According to GCN editorial director Thomas R. Temin, the move to consolidate the sections also reflects a fundamental change in systems use among GCN readers in recent years.

One focus

'The distinction between desktop and enterprise has been blurring for some time,' Temin said, 'because nearly all PCs and workstations in government offices are connected to a network'at least a workgroup LAN and likely to an agency or departmental WAN. This section merger recognizes that evolution and eliminates an artificial distinction.'

Chris Driscoll will cover the end-user and workgroup technologies, including PCs, workstations, servers, peripherals, personal and workgroup software, and agency application deployments at the LAN level. He can be reached by phone at 301-650-2125 or via
e-mail at [email protected]

Patricia Daukantas will cover enterprise topics, including WANs, systems-level hardware and software, databases, data warehousing, application development tools, storage, mainframes and supercomputing. Contact her by phone at 301-650-2140 or via e-mail at [email protected]

The Power User and Beat the Clock columns will continue to appear at their present frequencies'every issue and every other issue, respectively'while information from the Tech Refresh column will be presented in a new format.
