PSVillage Launches World's First and Only Peer-Reviewed Knowledge Library for Professional Services

New Library Part of Expanded Website and Services Offerings

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) - PSVillage, the leading online global community for IT professional services executives, managers and consulting practitioners, launched its new website today. The new site features a first-of-its-kind "knowledge library" of member-contributed, peer-reviewed content; peer-level moderated forums; the ability to contact other members through the site to share information within a protected, trusted environment; a vendor marketplace for one-stop shopping for professional service-related products and services; and more.

Expanding its scope of services, PSVillage introduced "tiered" membership, opening the community to management and individual contributors in addition to professional services executives, and "pure play" IT technology organizations in addition to traditional embedded service organizations.

"IT services and consulting leaders around the world turn to PSVillage as their trusted resource for professional services best practices, professional networking and peer advice," said PSVillage CEO Brian Whitefield. "We needed to respond in kind with new and more sophisticated service offerings, so we've built a rock solid web infrastructure capable of supporting continually increasing traffic and services. We now have the foundation for a whole new level of resources aimed at advancing the knowledge base for current and future IT professional services leaders."

New and expanded services include:

  • Knowledge Library: The only member-driven, peer-reviewed library of its kind, the library includes practical, proven and reusable artifacts such as templates, models, checklists, sample forms and guidelines in addition to traditional white papers and best practices articles useful to IT professional services and consulting practitioners.
