Unleash the Beast

What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a monster?
EMC and Dell, really? You could have knocked me down with a feather. I know it makes sense - hardware is diminishing and EMC has such a wide portfolio of products that this offers the perfect vehicle for Michael Dell to enter into the lucrative world of software and services.

They won it on paper first

Right now much of the world is gathering around television sets to watch the 4th or possibly the 3rd (see later) largest global sporting event of modern times. Apparently only the Olympics, the FIFA World Cup and another event, are larger than the Rugby World Cup.

Sweltering in the heat, or did you see that coming?

It’s hot, it’s humid, it’s sunny - it must be summer. I know that in the UK that is a strange phenomenon but for many of us from other parts of the world it’s the norm. Rather than one long temperate weather system that is persistently wet we have seasons and seasons come and seasons go.

LANDESK Interchange Changed?

This year in Las Vegas, the emphasis was on using what you have better and getting more value from your existing investments, whoever they are with and whatever you use.  The essence of the interchange annual use conference can be summed up simply with the phrase “Using what you already own – just BETTER”

Canada Day – Diversity with Unity

(Just like a sound IT network)

July 4 is just around the corner and whilst the most famous Independence Day is celebrated wide and far I want to use this opportunity to promote another independent country, a common colonial past with a rich history of its own.

Kids - stop reading and get on the X-Box! REALLY?

Well LANDESK Interchange, the annual user conference, is over for another year and simply put “what a show that was.”

A mixture of astute assessments of existing issues and their solutions along with visions for forthcoming problems on the horizon to address the ever evolving IT management headache. More on this in another blog to follow later.

The show was fundamentally geared around end user efficiency, adding value to the end user whilst offering a clear insight into the entire supported IT estate for managers and technicians alike.

Revolution or evolution – all will be revealed

Next week the LANDESK annual User Conference, Interchange will commence at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.  Very much a showcase for the latest and soon to be released technology within the LANDESK portfolio, customers will be delighted and appeased with the progression of the solutions they use every day.

Choose your side or choose your poison?

On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean the public soon get to make the most important choice of their lifetime so far, with the onset of the elections of Governments and Presidents.

Every person of voting age (technically known as universal suffrage) will get a choice. Amazingly some people will choose to make no choice at all and will elect not to vote – effectively handing control of their destiny to others. As the saying goes ‘If you don’t have a plan, you will be part of someone else’s.

Understand that with great power comes great responsibility.
