What the Future Holds for Data Storage

30 September, 2014 - 06:24

Predicting future changes in the world of technology can be a tricky endeavour. New products and innovations are revealed so rapidly that even experts may be caught unprepared. Even so, that doesn't mean looking into the future is without merit as it helps businesses and industries plan ahead. One of the most important aspects of any organization’s operations is the use of storage, particularly as more of the world becomes driven by data. Current ways of tackling storage challenges are already proving inadequate, necessitating new technologies and strategies for companies both large and small. Though no prediction is guaranteed to happen with 100% accuracy, here are several possibilities for what the future holds for data storage based off of current trends and recent technological developments.

The Content Management Professionals Say Goodnight

26 September, 2014 - 21:04

This week, the Board of Directors for the Content Management Professionals announced the ending of CM Pros. The decision to close down the organization was evidently made by the Board in Summer 2014.

Although the CMS Pros didn't play a significant part in my content management endeavors, I'm still a little saddened by their departure. I understand the difficulties of advocating the technical side of content management when the more glitzy marketing side of the house is talking content strategy. But this isn't the cause of my sadness, but my nostalgia for the days professional organizations had real value to people like you and me.

The Biggest BYOD Security Threats and How to Avoid Them

23 September, 2014 - 10:08

With Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs likely here to stay, companies are trying to find ways to reap the most benefits while downplaying the drawbacks. While it’s true that BYOD policies can lead to increased productivity, more employee satisfaction, and greater collaboration among workers, some significant issues have arisen in recent years. At the forefront is the concern over having a BYOD security plan, and since under a BYOD policy employees would be using their own personal devices to access company networks and data, business leaders are finding it an issue they need to address quickly. As businesses gain more experience with the threats associated with BYOD, they’re also finding the solutions to deal with them.

Protecting Your WiFi Network From Hackers

10 September, 2014 - 10:12

It may come as a bit of a shock, but many people simply don’t have security on their minds. With all the stories concerning major security breaches of large corporations like Target and Home Depot, businesses are definitely paying attention, but many private individuals don’t look at data security as a top priority. Even some smaller companies, while focusing on security for sensitive information, may unwittingly engage in practices putting that data at risk. One particular point of emphasis is the WiFi network.

New Study: How Does Google Judge Content Quality?

8 September, 2014 - 22:23

Brands Rank Higher Without Fulfilling Many Criteria Required Of Other Websites According To Searchmetrics US Google Ranking Factors 2014 Study

To achieve a high ranking position on Google, websites need to include high quality content that provides a great user experience according to new research announced today by Searchmetrics. The company found that high quality content covers a topic more comprehensively and is written in a way that is easier for the average person to read. As expected, these types of pages have better user signals, such as higher click-through rates and more time spent on site. They also have shorter page load times and well-organized internal links. However, well known brand websites still rank in top positions without having to fulfil many of the criteria Google seems to require from other websites.

The How Many Active Users on Social Networks Infographic

4 September, 2014 - 23:00

Earlier this week, I mentioned that I had questioned whether social media could replace my need to blog. In my blog post, I mentioned that Google+ and LinkedIn as social network platforms able to provide blog-like functions. Since that article posted, I've already heard comments from my Facebook and Twitter friends that no one uses Google+. I have to respectfully disagree with my friends. While people like to call Google+ a ghost town the numbers don't support their opinion.

Worldwide, Google+ has the third most active social media users with Facebook in first followed by YouTube in second place. Surprising to Twitter fans (I'm one of them), Twitter has only half the active users (271 Million) as Google+ (540 Million). Where did I get these numbers? Over the past couple years I've googled them, but recently I came across Mike Allton's article, Social Media Active Users by Network, via The Social Media Hat.
