We’ve never closed off any part of our website from anyone. But with the level of content increasing at a significant rate and that this content can be of value to even those not using our software, we’re considering making chunks of the site private – reflecting the vlaue we place in partnership with us. On the other side of the coin there are those saying that we need to remain completely open so that those not partnerwing with us can see what the Tower difference is.
As to which side will win the battle is unsure at this stage. It’s an issue now because of several valuable research projects we’re about to release reports on.
For me, the oppenness demonstrated in a company’s website is indicative of the openness of the company itself. Okay, so you know which way I am leaning. (That’s a challenge who want to close off parts of our website.)
