We are looking for thought leaders, and subject matter experts like you to help grow our content. Your contributions would provide Iasa’s members and outside practitioners with a learning venue where they can share similar goals, interests, problems, and approaches within the IT Architecture domain.

What is Iasa’s Content Initiative?

Iasa’s Online Content Initiative is ambitious. Though the program will begin with modest objectives, the overall goals are to raise the profile of Iasa in the IT industry, increase membership, and generate revenue for the organization.  The other major objective is to provide Iasa members with information-rich content that will help them in their work and achieve increased affiliation/loyalty to the organization.
