Cloud ERP Gains Ground

erpThe cloud has been advancing steadily into the enterprise over the past years. However, many ERP users are still hesitant to move their business into the cloud.


As SaaS ERP emerges, enterprises seem to eagerly cloud-enabling their offerings. In the meantime, new organizations come on stage claiming their offerings are "true cloud" or "more cloud" than others. Thus, there is nowadays a misunderstanding in the market about what is considered as a "real cloud" solution, which makes the buying decision even more difficult for potential customers.


"As companies that have not traditionally been cloud ERP clients turn to the cloud, competition in the market will increase," said Andrew King, Managing Director of WebSan Solutions Inc. "This will require customers to carefully evaluate cloud ERP vendors across specific industry benchmarks before purchasing a new cloud solution."

Business Intelligence

In 2014 Business Intelligence will be a must, since large and small organizations continue to look towards BI tools in order to benefit from data and maximize their investments in Enterprise Resource Planning solutions. Users are constantly looking for accurate and comprehensive information through visually appealing dashboards. In turn, by having real –time access to relevant data, companies can use this information proactively to make business decisions more effectively.

Mobility

Mobility is not only a trending topic but an everyday reality across most businesses. It is expected to be seamlessly integrated into business applications as part of the whole delivery experience for both customers and employees.


BYOD (bring your own device) will become more prevalent as companies realize the benefits of making business applications securely available on users' mobile devices.

Security concerns have taken the Internet by storm the last couple of days since a new bug called "Heartbleed" has been exposed by Codenomicon, a Finnish security company, and Google.


Heartbleed is an exploit that compromises secure communications using OpenSSL which is typically configured on servers in a *nix environment. The bug has exposed millions of usernames, passwords and reportedly credit card numbers. It was named Heartbleed because it affects an extension to Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) which engineers simply nicknamed Heartbeat. The two companies disclosed knowledge of the Heartbleed bug on Monday, but they noted that it went unnoticed for as long as two years.

SSL is one of the most commonly used encryption tools on the internet, deployed by almost 66% of all websites. If you ever see a little padlock symbol in your browser then it is likely that you are using SSL.

It's as if someone left their house not knowing the lock on the front door was broken.Could someone walk in? Yes. Have they actually walked in? No one knows.heartbleed

Recent  Microsoft acquisition of Skype has landed a partnership with US cable giant Comcast Corporation. The ideal partnership will bring Comcast’s television service to be partnered with Skype’s video conferencing service. There will no longer be a need for conferencing through pixelated video on laptops at the boardroom now that businesses will be able to conference in high definition video calls through their projectors.

The forecast of the partnership are still in talks and planning, however, one can only anticipate when “smell-o-vision” will exist.

Are you ready? It was just announced that Toronto will play host to one behemoth conference in 2012. This will be the second time Toronto will play host to the conference since 2004. Microsoft Corp. said it plans to hold its Worldwide Partner Conference from July 9 to July 13. More than 15,000 people are estimated to attend the conference in Toronto which will represent over 130 countries in the technology industry. While this year’s 2011 Worldwide Partner Conference is currently wrapping up in Los Angeles, we Canadians are already excited for 2012.

Bring Your Own Cloud trend arises

Written by

We have all heard about the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon in which employees bring their own computing devices to their work, such as their laptops, tablets or even smartphones to complete their job tasks more conveniently. Now Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) is arising and reshaping the world of IT management.

Bring your own cloud is a concept about employees being allowed to use public or private third-party cloud services to perform certain job roles, according to techopedia. Many of the services are web based and cross-platform with Dropbox being probably the most famous among them. Other popular personal cloud services are iCloud, Google Drive and SkyDrive. Additionally, these private cloud services are free to use under a certain storage limit, usually between 2 and 5 GB which is enough for storing emails, documents and other raw data.

Therefore, these BYOC services offer an efficient option for storing files off-device for greater protection, automatic backup and constant availability. However, at the same time they provide an avenue for corporate users to compromise security by storing important data outside the company’s secure barriers. The concern here is not about the Bring Your Own Cloud trend taking over the Bring Your Own Device. The real question is:

How securely can the two concepts coexist in a corporate environment, where you cannot really stop users from using private cloud services when they bring their own devices?
