Leveraging the advantages of BYOD

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend, which has employees making use of their own smartphones, tablets and notebooks for business purposes, is a growing phenomenon in the business world. This is especially so in the light of the fact that a recent estimate has the average employee using up to five devices.

Jerker Hellström
Rugged computers are more than just "hard shells"

Even professional users of rugged laptops, tablets and smartphones are sometimes unsure of what defines a "rugged computer" and how the various tests to validate ruggedness are carried out. A truly rugged computer is so much more than just a normal computer wrapped in a tough outer case.

Adapting to change in a virtual world

It should come as no surprise that the biggest technological impacts on IT departments in 2013 were mobile and big data. Both issues also dominated conversations in the storage arena last year and with employees now increasingly working remotely, it's highly likely that 2014 will see more and more organisations struggling to manage large volumes of data.

What is web hosting?

Being a "good host" was definitely high up the list of what parents of middle-class spoilt brats, like me, expected from their children. Apart from learning to place many more pieces of cutlery on a table than were required, I think the answer to being a good host was, and still is, to provide a decent and handy location for a group of people to share vaguely similar interests and to start a few conversations and make sure there are no uncomfortable silences. And, for me, that location was usually around a dinner table. Now it's around a computer.
