IT changing the world VS. The world changing IT

We are at an inflection point for IT. Think about the following:

  • 10-20 years ago people had the best computer at work, the best printer and even a mobile phone! Today we see the exact opposite, a personal phone is better than the work phone. People use the latest communication tools like Google, Facebook, G+, Twitter etc.
  • On their personal lives people access their data from anywhere using all sorts of devices. People use every available tool to pass their message across and contact their friends. This change is unstoppable, IT is being “consumerized”.

The questions are: “how are companies taking advantage of these new trends while keeping company data secure?”. It´s not all about having a BYOD* policy and insuring it’s secure. People changed the way they work and the world is different. We realised that we work better together, that great ideas and great solutions come from groups.

Unfortunately I see that at work several people feel locked, unhappy and unproductive.

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein

I see companies every day with this problem and helping them to adopt a better and more productive way of working is what I like to do the most 🙂

Cloud Computing

A few months have passed since I last posted in my blog and I apologize for that.

I’ll come back to this topic later but take this as an introductory post on Cloud Computing. 🙂

Cloud Computing is a concept that 10 years ago seemed a dream because of very slow internet connections,  today is a very solid reality.  It is amazing to see productivity gains, amazing collaboration potential etc. With cloud computing and SaaS (Software as a Service) you can take full advantage of a service without having to maintain all the technology behind it. It’s like going to a pub, enjoying a draft beer without having to worry about goes on in the background.

Below, in a glance, the potential that Google Apps can bring to your business…

Did you know that the name “Cloud Computing” is based in the cloud symbol that is used to represent the Internet in flow charts and diagrams
