As companies become increasingly mobile, managers need solutions to optimise their management of field workers, office staff and back-office systems. Similarly, office staff and field workers need to communicate and have instantaneous access to critical information so as to perform their tasks effectively. The solution to all of these challenges can be seen within mobile apps.
Although encrypted traffic improves privacy, it provides hackers with the opportunity to conceal their exploits from security software that does not inspect SSL traffic. Hackers can evade over 80% of companies’ network security simply by tunnelling attacks in encrypted traffic.
Videoconferencing offers an impressive value proposition: improved collaboration between geographically separated workers, while also cutting travel costs, increasing productivity and connecting people.

Implementing a data centre infrastructure management solution does not necessarily guarantee success. There are a number of identified pitfalls that can destabilise a DCIM design so that the end result will not effectively provide what was originally planned.
The effectiveness of a data centre cooling system can be greatly improved with an air containment strategy. Containment solutions increase system reliability, rack power density and cooling capacity, and promote significant energy savings.
In today’s service markets there is an evident gap between what customers want and what B2B businesses can essentially provide. Business IT infrastructures tend to lack the flexibility, where software can be added easily and instantly, to effectively close this gap between what you offer and what the customer requires.
You probably think your networks and systems are secure against cyberattackers. But think again ... some of the biggest breaches of recent times have come from criminals exploiting the simplest of gaps in companies’ defences.
Business process management (BPM) has numerous pitfalls that can lead to failure. Organisational politics can cause initiatives to stall or fail completely as they hit internal challenges, hurdles and opposition. Include event processing and predictive analytics technologies in the mix and the potential for failure compounds.
Cache-accelerated sequential layout (CASL) storage has the potential to eliminate the trade-off between Flash storage performance and capacity. The CPU-driven storage architecture offers superior read and write performance, while dramatically increasing the usable capacity of a disk.
A drop cable is a critical component of network deployments, but the many challenges and considerations can make choosing the right drop cable technology a difficult task.
A new generation of applications uses computer intelligence to extract context-relevant information associated with business processes. That information is used to select the next steps in the workflow, for example when handling payments, through contract bids, claims and loan origination, to traditional healthcare, crime or legal cases.
Users of corporate networks expect to be online all the time and are continually demanding a higher performance from their networks. This is placing enormous pressure on network managers to take a user-centric approach to network delivery.
Optimised customer service is imperative for customer-facing businesses of any size. A cloud-based mobile workforce management system can provide the flexibility needed to achieve this goal.
