So what is Gestalt: An organized field having properties that cannot be derived from the sum of component parts; a unified whole.
Today each of us blogs independently as well, we get website hits that probably vary from several hundred to thousands a day. We have a set of readers we get every day and some exposure on search engines like Google and Yahoo. But is that it…..
Looking at the benefits of Gestalt IT, the exposure a reader gets in terms of overall IT Industry is far better than individual blogs themselves. In the future you will see each writer will be publishing post – articles exclusively for Gestalt IT. There is a lot of behind the scene collaboration going on with all the authors.
So who are these Authors…..

A variety of topics and discussions are always on going at Gestalt IT at any given time, there are quite a few new features and enhancements that are upcoming for readers. Also after visiting several other IT magazines, one theme that draws me away from them is the excessive ad campaigns they run on the sites to make money. In the thirst to make money, a user probably goes through 10 clicks to read an article as he is juggling between pop ups and ads.
With Gestalt IT, you are assured of the clean view each and every time. A lot of authors on Gestalt IT come from various industry practices and have been major contributors in specific fields including other IT magazines.
