On behalf of Sun Microsystems and its learning arm, Sun Educational Services, I would like to welcome CLO, Chief Learning Officer Magazine to the enterprise learning scene. From our experience in the enterprise learning industry and from working with many CLOs, Sun has witnessed the growing recognition that learning is a key element to organizational success. We have also watched the industry mature with ever more sophisticated customer demands driving vendors and products to new levels. Certainly, CLOs are at the heart of this revolution. A critical part of a mature market is a robust, vibrant and independent marketplace of ideas, and CLO Magazine is certainly a most welcome addition in this regard. We at Sun Microsystems anticipate that this magazine will quickly become a valuable source of information and thought-provoking dialogue for CLOs (and all of us in this industry), as we strive to help organizations succeed by developing, extending and managing their talent.
