Is Cloud Computing A Threat To Older Tech Companies? Part 1 Almost exactly a year ago, The Informational Data Corporation (IDC) made some pretty bold predictions regarding the development of a new high-tech industry in the convergence of social networking, and cloud-based computing and data storage. IDC suggested that many industry giants may scramble to maintain relevance in 2012, while some startups would gain leadership positions – part of the technology industry’s fastest transition ever. Today’s major big players may be in trouble if they don’t prepare for change. Spending on the new technologies will reach nearly $700 billion, or

Cheap Laptops or Integrated Cloud Systems for Education? One of the most heated debates in many emerging economies and third-world countries is tying education to device ownership. The original mentality of NGO programs that use e-learning to support remote communities online is to provide over-the-counter laptops. These would normally have a face value of under a hundred dollars per machine. The schemes would even do away with Value Added Tax in the country of use. Now there is the integrated system that brings together a myriad of such devices in a classroom and makes them more than a mere local network.
Towards Intelligent Cloud Diagnostics: Well Researched Software Marvel A devoted group of researchers at North Carolina State University have painstakingly developed a novel software tool aimed at addressing performance disarrays in cloud computing systems. The tool functions to automatically classify and respond to potential network disruptions before they actually occur. Cloud computing provides the freedom of creating numerous virtual machines provided to the end-users across a single computing platform – all that functions autonomously. Performance issues with such an approach are bound to occur. In case of a software glitch or a closely related hiccup, problems arising across a single
How To Reduce Risks In Cloud Computing Healthcare IT News survey results released recently show that 48% of respondents plan to include cloud computing in their IT projects, while 33% have already done so. However, the survey also found that 19% of respondents had no plans at all regarding cloud computing. The co-founder and president of ID Experts, Rick Kam, has a reason for this: security. The 19% of total respondents fear that cloud computing is not secure enough for their data. For health care institutions, entities, and providers in particular, it is data security that is of utmost importance,
