BYOD: A Boost for SMBs
Of all the things that small business owners have to consider in the course of everyday operations, one of the oddest yet potentially most valuable involves four simple letters: BYOD. Short for bring your own device, it’s a principle that sounds easy to work with, but quickly expands into a maze of new considerations, potential risks, and possible rewards.

Priorities for an Effective IT Automation Roadmap
CIOs are constantly under pressure to meet management goals for faster and more accurate delivery of services. No one wants to be left behind, and IT automation promises to be the hope for improved efficiencies and the reduction of costs.
The Case for Managed IT Services
The global market for managed services is expected to reach $193 billion by 2019. Managed IT services in particular can help businesses in a number of ways. From cost savings to better security, managed IT services are particularly beneficial to companies with a small — or no — IT department.
How Managed IT Provides a Competitive Advantage
Managed IT services is one of the most constantly changing fields in technology. This is in part due to the nature of technology, which is always outdating itself. Focusing too much on technology can distract a company from its goals, which are to satisfy customers and keep revenue flowing.
