Artificial Intelligence is everywhere, but it’s critical for companies to take the time to research, analyze, and develop a strategic plan before deploying AI initiatives. Well it seems this artificial intelligence thing has caught on after all, and looks like it’s here to stay.
Most of us are familiar with the saying “upstream without a paddle”. This is an unfortunate event, where one finds themselves without the proper resources. I have witnessed this exact phenomenon on one of my canoe trips. A pair of canoers had broken a paddle.
Just because virtualization is an incredibly advanced and complicated technology doesn’t mean small businesses can’t get in on the action. As experts debate the merits of virtual desktops versus containers, all SMBs need are an elementary understanding of how virtualization works and an IT provider.
Trends & Observations can serve two purposes. One, a view into a possible state and two, a reflection of things around us that can lead to disruptions. Sometimes you have to look closely to see the trees and other times far away to see the forest. #1 Customer is King The customer it turns out, […]

Much of what I predict to be significant for the data storage industry in 2018 may go unnoticed by most IT professionals, even though some of these concern major progress that hasn’t been experienced in nearly a full generation! So much has been happening in the development of exciting new […]
I’ve been into serverless technologies for a few years now. The thought of not having to care about what platform my code is executing on, or having to manage and operate it, resonated with my developer side that just wants to code. I also saw it as a possible catalyst for change in how we […]

To stay relevant, companies that want to play a major part in this fourth industrial revolution must digitally transform.
The notion of “the whole being greater than the sum of its parts” is true for many implementations of technology. Take, for example, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions like the Dell EMC VxRail. HCI combines virtualization software and software defined storage with industry standard servers.
