On Mon, 11/15, Microsoft will introduce a redesigned home page to TechNet, to provide IT Pros with more guidance about what news and issues Microsoft has that day. The big changes will be obvious immediately to frequent visitors. There’s more news and feature content at the top of the page — moved the left rail navigation–the list of all the TechCenters and topic centers–to bottom of the page.
- TechNet ON, biweekly feature on a key IT Pro topic, gets more play at the top left of the page. A “Hot Topics” section, gets the upper right corner, going to deliver day-of-release news about new products and services.
- Today’s News, will remain “above the fold” on the home page, along with new “Getting IT Done” section in right column, which provide links to new and growing set of IT scenario guides to help get visitors to point in the explore-deploy-manage-maintain lifecycle they need.
- Local Community, will be featuring local TechNet Edge video and opportunities to meet and talk with your peers in your region.
- Finally, moved that large subscription section at the top of the old home page to the bottom, because many people, upon their arrival, spend extensive time and energy trying to figure out what costs money on TechNet.
