ITtoolbox is an online community, enabling peers to share professional knowledge about information technology. Since 1998, ITtoolbox has helped professionals make IT decisions and stay current in the rapidly changing technology market through peer collaboration. The company was founded in 1998 as "ITtoolbox," one of the first online communities enabling professionals to share knowledge about information technology. Initially, the community was built on five knowledge bases (SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Baan, and ERP) powered by discussion forums. The ITtoolbox platform now incorporates a professional network, 28 knowledge bases, more than 200 blogs, 650 discussion groups, and a wiki to facilitate targeted community interaction in which IT advertisers can participate through a proprietary contextual matching system. In February 2000, ITtoolbox launched ITtoolbox Groups, e-mail-based discussion communities covering a range of IT products and topics.
