2009 brings big changes to DM Review - a new name, first and foremost - which my colleague Jim Ericson explains here

Before you get to that, I'd like to point out some features you'll find in our new magazine and why you're seeing them. We know our mission is about real people and real businesses working to get ahead and stay ahead. It's reflected in our new subtitle, How Your Business Works. Our goal is to connect the community to you, and we'll be doing this in several ways.

For starters, you'll see more case studies and stories from end users facing the same issues you are. We have added more features and deeper dives into subjects. You'll discover that our columns have been reorganized into subsets you'll relate to and find easier to navigate. We've added a simple ranking tool to each column to help you quickly size up the business value and the technical depth within. You'll find contributions from familiar names and a wider variety of experts.

To keep things in perspective, we've added more coverage of timely research on our Snapshot page. There's a handy calendar to keep you updated on conferences, seminars and other events of interest. Finally, our new back page, called Interface, will recruit a variety of experts for commentary and updates on the way we interact with information, collaborate and work, in the office and on the Web.

Some of these developments are already reflected in our relaunched Web site, info-mgmt.com. In the coming year, you'll see new interactive and rich media tools to consolidate topics of interest and make these topics easier for you to find. We'll be linking out and adding working experts to write about what they're seeing in the world of information management. It's all about being a constructive part of your working day.

We are able to make these changes because of strong editorial leadership and a talented team that stretches from the creative department right through the front office of our parent company SourceMedia. Some of you may already know our new group editorial director for business/technology publications, John McCormick, whose wealth of print and new media journalistic excellence will help guide Information Management as the leading brand for business and IT.

Finally, we thank you and all our readers for 20 years of support and participation, without which none of this would be possible. Here's wishing you a prosperous year and continued success.

Enjoy the issue.

Julie Langenkamp, editor in chief
