Does your business pay through the nose for software licenses? Are you worried about annual maintenance costs? For most SMBs, software eats up a significant portion of their budget. Fortunately, with software as a service (SaaS), you can do a lot for less.
In 2018, the buzz in business was all about digital transformation technologies—everything from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to hybrid cloud, blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). That buzz won’t cease in 2019—but the chatter around these technologies may become more refined, with less of a focus on what the technologies are and more on how they will be applied to have the most impact on business.
More cameras, more sensors, more intelligence―today’s advanced video surveillance systems do more than ever before to protect people and property, with applications far beyond perimeter monitoring and access control.
However, as a recent IDC white paper points out, putting new surveillance technologies to work quickly gets complex.
Almost every modern mobile device allows you to send and receive emails, download and upload media files, store data, and even close business deals. As mobile devices have become indispensable in everyone’s personal and professional life, the security risks have also increased — and backing them up has become more critical than ever.
Online blogs and forums mostly cover networks and the cloud when it comes to cybersecurity, leaving other types of technology — particularly virtualization — overlooked and unsecured. If you don’t have the right defense plans in place, your business will be vulnerable to all types of cyberthreats.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to revolutionize the healthcare industry. But as with any new technology, it also brings a slew of security risks healthcare professionals need to address. Devices that contain a treasure trove of patient data are attractive targets for cybercriminals.
The cloud often seems as if it’s something that’s meant more for large companies. But the benefits of cloud services for small businesses might be even more disruptive than for bigger organizations. Consider these common reasons for migrating to the cloud:
Improved productivity: Moving to the cloud means employees can work anytime, anywhere.
As networking moves from monolithic to disaggregated infrastructure, the necessity of programmability has become existential, be it physical or software-defined networks (SDN). A common thread runs through these movements: the need for control.
As the notion of control continues to evolve, it will drive significant changes to the systems that form the foundations of the network.
The cloud allows businesses to take a more hands-off approach to managing their IT resources. And the hybrid cloud is rapidly becoming the most popular option in this category, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Hybrid clouds are a combination of private and public clouds.
