Given the Propensity to Go BOYD, Knowing What Belongs to Whom Is Paramount
Every company needs to keep track of the assets, least they have a new equipment purchase program that is not of their choosing.
Cloud technology is beginning to dominate the business world, with various estimates suggesting that its combined services market will be worth $180 billion by the end of 2015.
While this represents a substantial figure, however, it still does not do justice to the level of influence that Cloud computing has within companies nationwide.
From human resources to customer relationship management, there are a growing number of Cloud based systems that are enabling businesses to cut their operational costs while also optimising efficiency.
Asset management software provides another relevant example, as it is available in numerous forms and affords companies the opportunity to control their physical and intellectual property.

If you missed this year’s event (we did, long story, keep reading…) or if you haven’t heard of HRTechEurope, then you haven’t heard just how explosive this event was this year for both HR technology as well as for Europe.
The hashtag #hrtecheurope on our TweetDeck was beeping so much we had to turn the sound off which still meant the popups were arriving in multiples.
This proved to make our attempt to write anything during the event very challenging as we instead found ourselves having a hard time staying up with the twitter conversation.

Guess What? Your Tech Savvy Customer Is No Longer Predominantly a PC User
With BYOD now a given, there are many advantages of producing you own apps
In this article, remember that your customer can be the public — as well as your own employees.
In spring 2013, Apple reported 50 billion apps have been downloaded from its App Store.
Even more interesting, is that 800 apps are downloaded every second, and 2 million are added each month.
Besides being a useful piece of techie trivia, what does this popularity mean to today’s business leaders?
First, it means your customers are likely heavy users of mobile phones and tablets.
Second, it means that your employees are likely to be just as familiar with apps.
We receive 4000+ emails every day and we are always happy to see correspondence coming from familiar names — no matter what level of influence they may be…

We hope you can make the time to attend this conference. Unfortunately, we have a few situations here in Brasil that need attention and prevent us from attending this year — hopefully we will be arriving next year to meet you all!

Security Just Doesn’t Happen
You have to deal with it, every day…
It seems that everyone is in the cloud.
Most business owners, even those who haven’t actively sought out the use of cloud storage, still use cloud computing in their business.
Communication methods such as email and text messaging fall under the cloud computing umbrella because they take place over the internet and the information is stored remotely.
As cloud computing becomes more predominant, it’s also important to consider cloud security.
Cloud security, also referred to as cloud computing security, is a rapidly developing sub-domain of computer information security.
Included in cloud security are controls, technologies, and policies that protect the applications and information of individuals and businesses everywhere.
There’s really no way to get around the issue of dealing with cloud security, making the topic one that’s important for all business owners to understand.

More Evidence of the High Rate of Change In Cloud Computing
Out with the old and in with the new is challenging the concept of the database as well
Cloud technology is experiencing a wide range of directional shifts, but perhaps the most pressing shift in the cloud has to do with database technology and management.
This is largely due to the fact that the modern database is becoming increasingly complex with the rise of big data.
Cloud database offerings – now being labeled under Database as a Service (DBaaS) cloud-computing model – are offering new ways for IT pros to manage databases in the cloud.
Historically, database management was a job reserved for the Database Administrator (DBA), but now there is some question as to how DBaaS providers will change the nature of DBA’s.

The chances are, if your job involves the use of an office suite, you will have used either Microsoft Office or Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), or both.
And, if you haven’t used either, you’ll almost certainly have heard of them.
Google Drive is a constantly iterating thing, with updates coming in small bites, rather than larger, one off updates, so it’s difficult to tie this suite down to a version.
Microsoft Office on the other hand, has been restricted to major updates (Office XP, Office 2007, Office 2010… you get the idea), and its latest offering, Office 365 (2013), is about to go up against Google Drive in the online space.

Eying the growth prospects associated with this technology, entrepreneurs are exceedingly following measures which can help them adopt it into their business model.
