No other media company is focused exclusively on the needs of IT pros who serve small and midsize customers. We recognize that SMB’s have specific challenges due to the size of their staffs and IT budgets, and the IT pros that serve them must be able to offer them right-sized solutions --- not a watered down enterprise solution. We provide our audience with insights, best practices and product coverage specifically for SMBs and that has made our audience (and our advertisers) very loyal to us.
