It’s no secret that 2011 saw the adoption rates of cloud computing increase, and 2012 should see even more growth as organizations not only move their critical applications to the cloud, but small and mid-sized businesses begin to request more cloud-based applications.   For all its popularity right now, cloud computing is only in its infancy stages. Years and even decades from now we’ll be looking at what happened in 2011-12 and repeating the phrase commonly heard on those annoying AT&T 4G LTE television ads, “that was so two decades ago.” That’s because ubiquitous computing is coming. One day the notion of going to a computer to Google something, or read your email will seem quaint and old fashioned. “Grandpa, did you really use a PC and a rat?” children will ask. “You mean a mouse and yes, of course everybody did,” a grandfather will answer.

Despite an increase in BYOD, only 8% of UK organisations have use-policies in place, reveals Zenprise research

As enhanced efficiency, employee productivity and the reduced burden on IT teams continue to drive adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), a recent survey of more than 500 IT decision makers, conducted by Zenprise - the recognised leader and innovator in mobile device management (MDM) - suggests that UK firms are leaving themselves dangerously exposed to security risks, as only a handful of organisations are implementing formal policies that govern the use of personal devices in the workplace. The security implications of enabling access to corporate networks and resources from personal devices are significant, and without careful management, could lead to the malicious or accidental leakage of sensitive corporate data. Despite these risks, 39% of respondents stated employees are permitted to use devices for both personal and corporate use, while only 8% have a f... (more)

Aereo v. Broadcasters: Things to Ponder

According to aereo.com, “With Aereo, you can watch real, live TV through a tiny remote antenna you control over the Internet — from home or anywhere in your home coverage area.” If you’re a TV viewer with a broadband connection to the public Internet, this seems like an awesome idea.
