Think About Business

Think About Business is a collection of business-related IT news, opinion and discussion generated by Think I.T. team members and our partners. We anticipate publishing every 4-6 weeks.

Think About Business is our way of keeping you informed of developments and trends and their relevance to your enterprise, as well as discussing some general business issues.

We welcome your input and feedback. Let us know what you like and don’t like. Tell us what you want to see being discussed or illuminated. The best “letter to the Editor” each edition will be rewarded with a bottle of something nice chosen by our resident Oenophile, Kerry Wilson.

If you have a colleague who would benefit from subscribing to Think About Business, please have them email editor@thinkit.co.nz and we will sign them up.
