What's right for your business file storage needs: Cloud, On-Premise or a Hybrid solution?

Historically, businesses had only one option to store their digital files: a server or computer that was located on-premise in their office.

Today, there are also Cloud-based and hybrid file storage solutions available – but how do you know which solution is right for your business?

The end of 'Made in China'?

For decades, China has been the place to go to for incredibly-cheap manufacture of goods. However, with the Chinese manufacturing wages rapidly increasing, it seems this may no longer be the cheap option for businesses looking to keep costs to a minimum.

However, at the same time there is a growing trend for 'locally produced' goods, and consumers and more and more willing to pay more for products made in their own country.

What do you think is the best business strategy to adopt - looking for the 'next China' for continued cheap manufacture, or changing branding focus to promote the fact that goods are now made ethically and in-country?

+Trevor Pickens Actually, on this topic we've just found this great article from +Growth Business UK - it looks like in the UK at least, more companies are bringing their manufacture closer to home! http://www.growthbusiness.co.uk/growing-a-business/human-resources/2454917/why-businesses-should-bring-manufacturing-back-to-the-uk.thtml

High attrition rate causing your contact center a problem? I think it's time you provide your call center agents adequate visibility, practice a culture of open communication and unify agent expectation to the managements expectation. It will not just improve your agents performance, it will also increase engagement, and solve your problem on attrition.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN HACKERS AND SPAMMERS ATTACK YOUR SITE?
We have a site that is focused on the construction industry and the professionals who make a living in the industry.  The site is almost two years old and www.elmpost.com tries to write at least one article a week that will be of interest to construction professionals, we offer free classified ads to anyone in the business and we have an e-commerce store.  In our first year we were very happy with our growth then we noticed that something was wrong we just weren’t growing.  So we went to the SEO experts.  We quickly found out three things; one, most quoted phone numbers, two, they promised the world and three everything was shrouded in mystery.
We struggled to get the site back on track and after the normal horror stories we met an individual who was really able to help use and we would like to pass on the following information that could be of real help to anyone who is experience the same nightmare. 
 First and foremost go to Goggle Webmaster Central http://www.google.com/webmasters/  and read their Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide.  Really take the time to understand this great tool.
 Sign up for Goggle Analytics and Goggle Webmaster Tools and see what Goggle is saying about your site.  Make all changes and corrections necessary from what you discover.
 If you are theme based make sure your site is working off the latest updates for your theme.
 Use a good malware scanner like Succuri Sitecheck Malware Scanner to check theme and Plugin’s for spammers.
 Install the latest security plugins [make sure they receive high marks before choosing]
 Change all your passwords and use a password site like Dashlane  that scrambles your passwords so they are next to impossible to hack.
 Report any spamming or hacking to all the search engines immediately.
 Check your site daily to make sure you are not being spammed or hacked.
While this is not a cure all it is a decent start.  Please ad comments if you can add or improve on this list as the only way we can protect any of us from spammers and hackers is if we pool our knowledge.

Big Data is a nebulous term with different meanings, representations, and uses for different organizations. The bigger it gets, the harder it is for researchers, knowledge workers and business owners to understand its analysis to make effective decisions. It seems that we need robust tools to visualize the data in meaningful ways that are interactive. That begs the question, is visualized data the right framework for having a deeper understanding of Big Data? Let me know your answers.

Tech companies are quick to tout the world-changing powers of “Big Data”. Never before has so much data been available covering so many areas of interest and it’s most likely that enterprise organizations are planning to continuously deploy big data related projects. So much has been said about its power, but is Big Data necessarily better data? Let me know your insights about it. Thanks!

The buzz about 'the cloud' is louder than ever as most organizations have adopted cloud applications such as Salesforce.com or Dropbox, and many are now offering their solutions 'as a service'. With the increased volume and speed of cloud offerings, you may be wondering if your business can benefit from greater leverage of 'the cloud'. You may wonder what this really entails and if it is worth it. You may also question the maturity and the security of cloud technology.  #cloud  

Reducing IT costs remains one of the top drivers for companies moving to 'cloud', or 'as a service' model. Similarly, the increased predictability of monthly recurring revenue makes transformation to an "as a service model" quite attractive. But before you take the leap to the cloud operationally or as a business model, it is critical to understand the impact of the transition on the entire organization.

Businesses which have successfully transitioned business model can attribute their success to

Asking the right questions
Setting realistic expectations
Developing required processes

Implementing strategy and tactics that meet prioritized business needs

By making a complete plan encompassing these critical elements before you make a the decision to move forward, you can speed success. To grow your business exponentially through cloud deployment, it is important to ask the right questions and plan your journey accordingly.
