  • It's all happening in the world of big data.

    For a relatively new market, there is a lot happening in the world of big data.  If we were to take a "Top 20" look at the technologies, it would probably read something along the lines of this week's biggest climber being Hadoop; biggest loser being relational databases and staying place being the less-schema databases.

  • The continuing evolution of EMC

    The recent EMCWorld event in Las Vegas was arguably less newsworthy for its product announcements than for the way that the underlying theme and message continues to move EMC away from the company that it was just a couple of years ago.

  • Finding new containers for the BYOD genii

    Many headline IT trends are driven by organised marketing campaigns and backed by industry players with an agenda - standards initiatives, new consortia, developer ecosystems - and need a constant push, but others just seem to have a life of their own.

  • Print security: The cost of complacency

    Quocirca research reveals that enterprises place a low priority on print security despite over 60% admitting that they have experienced a print-related data breach.

    Any data breach can be damaging for any company, leaving it open to fines and causing damage to its reputation and undermining customer confidence. In the UK alone, the Ponemon Institute estimates that in 2013, the average organisational cost to a business suffering a data breach is now £2.04m, up from £1.75m in the previous year.

    Although there is much talk of a move towards virtual
    desktops, served as images from a centralised point, for many organisations,
    the idea does not appeal.  Whatever the
    reason (and there may be many as a previous blog here points out),

    As the web
    has evolved so have the security products and services that control our use of
    it. In the early days of the "static web" it was enough to tell us which URLs
    to avoid because the content was undesirable (porn etc.) As the web became a

    bad URLs that appeared overnight or good URLs that had gone bad as existing
    sites were compromised. Early innovators in this area included Websense (now a

  • Two areas where businesses can learn from IT

    Many IT
    industry commentators (not least Quocirca) constantly hassle IT managers to
    align their activities more closely with those of the businesses they serve; to
    make sure actual requirements are being met. However, that does not mean that
    lines of business can stand aloof from IT and learn nothing from the way their
