Le futur des sciences spatiales: cartographie technique de l’univers


J’ai toujours pensé que le futur des sciences spatiales serait un domaine que d’autres personnes viendraient me raconter. Comme par exemple lorsqu’il y a 8 ans, j’étais assise dans l’auditoire de l’Association d’Information Géographique et j’écoutais le conférencier nous expliquer comment l’espace était en train de changer le monde. J’ai alors vu une des premières […]

Of all public cloud services, Software as a Service — or SaaS — is the offering with the biggest potential. It truly is IT-as-a-utility, like water from the tap or power from a socket.

Why and how to collaborate on Windows 10 app updates


Another large migration of enterprise devices to Windows 10 has begun, and planning/deployment is commencing in most organizations. Many conversations I’ve had on this focus on features, compatibility and readiness for migration.  These are great discussions to have — but the answers need to be enabled by an increasingly weak and fragmented collaboration between IT, Business App Leads, […]

Now’s the time for the C-Suite to take joint responsibility for application platform decisions

Business Meeting

Here’s a novel, but controversial statement, “it’s time for the CEO, COO, CIO to start to take joint responsibility for application platform decisions.” For too many years now technical meritocracy has led the decision-making for the business with regard to platform selection. This includes, but is not limited to, servers, operating systems, virtualization, cloud and […]

A rookie’s guide to mobile virtual reality for iPhone


The man-child boomer got the best of me, and I fell victim to the hype, going into one of my obsessive spells to try to learn everything possible about mobile virtual reality (VR) for iPhones.

The 99% claim means that many clients will have fewer difficult apps to resolve compatibility issues. Still, the 1% for some clients could equate to 50 […]
