IEEE-CS Launches Expanded Computing Now Site

LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 30 August 2012 – Computing Now, the IEEE Computer Society's online gateway for computing technology articles, news, and multimedia, has added targeted channels, industry-focused articles, weekly polls, leading bloggers, and solutions centers.
Adding industry articles and other new features to Computing Now's deep bench of news, multimedia, and peer-reviewed research will greatly increase the site's appeal as the online destination for computing technology leaders.
"When we launched Computing Now in 2008, our goal was to provide readers and subscribers with online access to the IEEE Computer Society's high-quality print periodicals," said Computing Now founder Dejan Milojicic, senior researcher at HP Labs. "Thanks to the devoted efforts and innovative drive of volunteers and staff, the site has evolved into a central hub for members of the computing profession and the basis for IEEE Computer Society social networking strategy. The site's expansion will open it up to an ever wider audience of technology leaders."
To help site visitors track new developments in targeted technologies, the content will be organized into channels on:
  • Cloud computing
  • High-performance computing
  • Mobile computing
  • Networking
  • Professional development
  • Security, and
  • Software development.
Solutions-oriented articles and case studies by industry leaders from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, NASA Ames Research Center, Siemens, Vitesse Semiconductor, and other companies will help visitors find real-world solutions and applications for current technology. The audience will range from C-level executives to software developers, networking and security experts, and other computing professionals.
Industry-leading bloggers will keep their fingers on the pulse with frequent dispatches from their corners of the quickly changing technology world. Among them will be:
  • IBM Fellow Grady Booch, whose blog, Human Aspects of Computing, will highlight his current computing-history documentary;
  • James "Cope" Coplien, whose Agile Careers blog is at turns practical and philosophical;
  • Tore Dybå, chief scientist and research manager at SINTEF, whose blog will cover lean development;
  • Christof Ebert, managing director of Vector Consulting Services, who will write about the software business and global software engineering;
  • Hakan Erdogmus, president Kalemun Research, whose Things Software blog covers all aspects of software engineering;
  • "The Dark Side of Software Engineering" co-author Robert Glass, who will write about software engineering; and
  • Diomidis Spinellis, a professor at Athens University of Economics and Business, whose blog dds  covers software tools.
The expanded site will also include Solutions Centers focusing on technology insights and specific resources to meet current industry needs. The first Solutions Center are sponsored by Schneider Electric and IBM Rational.
The expanded site will also offer new advertising and sponsorship opportunities, from videos and weekly polls to solutions centers, a buyers' guide, and blogs. For more information, contact Sandra Brown at
