Story
Tagline
Technology writer and editor, covering computer industry 1991
Introduction
I am the managing editor (technology) on Computer Weekly magazine responsible for commissioning, writing and overseeing  the magazine strategy concerning all matters relating to technology from up-and-coming research and development to systems management challenges and legacy support and maintenance.

I have been writing about these subjects since the early 1990s. In my current role, I write a regular blog called Cliff Saran’s Enterprise blog which aims to unravel the hype, weed out the fear uncertainty and doubt spun by the massive marketing machinery in the IT industry.
Bragging rights
I look at how IT can be integrated across businesses and supply chains to improve efficiency and create new opportunities
