Turning IT 'weak links' into strengths
With so much focus on ICT innovation and emerging computing platforms it's easy to overlook a central truth of the business computing age: IT performance is governed by the weakest link within a system of inter-related parts e.g. server virtualisation might offer better protection from hardware failures, but what does it matter if a failed communications link prohibits access to applications running on those servers?

Retail therapy - no time for POS headaches

The customer standing on the other side of the counter simply isn’t prepared to wait for delayed transaction processing.
