As a crucial part of your company’s daily operations, it is imperative to seek the most advanced IT solutions available to enhance overall efficiency and minimize your risk of data loss.
The world of IT services is constantly changing and improving, and finding all-encompassing IT solutions to make the most of your investment is an important factor in the growth of your business. Here are three of the many benefits to seeking the best IT solutions available for your company:
Over 42% of corporate leaders plan to increase their spending on cloud computing by the end of 2015, and for good reason. The future of data storage, cloud IT services, are an integral part of any successful business today. As of now, 88% of businesses use a public cloud while 63% opt for a private cloud. Your company needs the power and efficiency of a public cloud with the security and control of a dedicated environment, which is exactly what a great IT company can offer you.
One of the most important aspects of professional IT solutions, a disaster recovery system aids in protecting information from a sudden and unexpected loss. A disaster support plan helps prevent against the consequences of a power outage, which can strike any moment. It also eliminates the possibility of data loss via hard drive crashes, which happens about 140,000 times a week in the U.S. Your company’s information will be consistently archived so you can be prepared for any bumps in the road that may come along.
While you may think you are well-equipped to ward off hackers, there’s a good chance you don’t have the protection you need to fully protect your company. For example, did you know that current employees accounted for 35% of all data breaches in 2014? The people who have access to your sensitive information could be the ones who initiate your downfall. The best IT services work with you to eliminate this risk and protect you from all potential threats, whether they be internal or external.
These are just a few of the qualities of the best IT solutions available. Your company needs an all-inclusive protection system to maintain your success and build for the future. Talk to a qualified IT services company and discover more of the amazing things they can do for your business.
The Internet of Things offers a vast world of potential. As it stands now, physical and digital designers have already developed about 60% of its potential value, and are working on the other 40% of its potential value. By 2020, it’s predicted that 50 billion things, and more than 5 billion people will be connected to the Internet. By 2025, it could be worth $3.9 trillion to $11.1 trillion.
It has also created an amazing marketing opportunity for digital agency Netflix.
As the cultural status of “Netflix and chill” continues to grow and grow, some Internet of Things designers have created a Netflix and Chill button, which the eponymous digital agency have fully embraced.
“The Switch,” as Netflix’s PR department dubbed it, is a simple piece of Do-It-Yourself technology. All it is is a box with a button. If you press that button, it’ll dim your lights, turn on your TV, boot up Netflix, and even order pizza.
The Switch uses a Particle Core, which is a basic computer. The whole, entire design is available online, and the TV and movie streaming service even offers a complete step by step guide to building your own.
What’s neat about the whole DIY approach is that you don’t have to make it follow those exact specification. With a bit of tinkering, your own Switch could potentially start up Hulu instead, or order Chinese instead, or even get the fire going (if you have an electric fire).
So while analysts and entrepreneurs foresee the amazing possibilities of the Internet of Things — all of the energy efficiency improvements, health tracking, and home improvements — others are using the Internet of Things to make some fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
This is not the only odd thing to come out of the Internet of Things either. If you know of any other odd creations, feel free to share them in the comments, and let us know what you think.
