In our conservative, risk-based marketplace, change is often described as an oxymoron. But thanks to free enterprise, keeping up with change is not only necessary, it's critical to your success. Perhaps the greatest change has taken place in technology, not only because of automation and the Internet, but because it's finally being recognized for what it is: a critical ingredient to successful business operations.Perhaps Mike Byam put it best during a recent Insurance Networking News Virtual Trade Show session. The vice president of e-business & technology transformation at The Hartford's Financial Services Group said: "The line is becoming blurred between IT and the business. At some point, IT won't be the focus of the discussion. The focus will be one of several elements comprising successful business strategies."

This brave new world, one that integrates business and technology issues, demands an authoritative voice that delivers appropriate, thorough information to enable you to make the connection between IT and your business. Premiering in this issue, we intend to help you make that connection. Insurance Networking News has taken on a new size, a new look and a new editorial format. These changes reflect a 12-month analysis of reader surveys, focus groups and one-on-one discussions with a variety of our stakeholders.
