Be Better at Managing Your Web Design Projects

Regardless of the project you're working on, good project management is a must. In a web design project, for instance, good project management will not only help you organize every part of the project properly, but also allow you to overcome challenges and get the best results without wasting too much time revising and debugging. According to studies complied by Brandeis University and its masters in project and program management program, good project management involves five important steps.

The most important part of the project management cycle is actually planning. You can't plan for everything, but good planning will help give you that extra set of guidelines that will get you to your goals faster. You can also organize resources and time better with careful planning at the beginning of the project.


Infographic: IT Disaster Recovery Plan

Technology is the backbone of your business, but what happens when it fails? Make no mistake - this isn't an "if" scenario, but a matter of time: From power outages to weather events or network issues, technology doesn't always work as intended. How do you make sure you're prepared?

Anatomy of a Disaster

What's behind an IT disaster? The hard truth is that anything can cause network problems, device failures or total blackouts - some issues are simply more likely than others. For example, power outages caused by large-scale events such as storms or fires often top the list of IT disaster causes. Other common origins include issues with existing networks, such as the migration from local stacks to cloud-based networks or attacks by malicious actors. These could include DDoS attacks that are designed to quickly bring down tech services by overwhelming them with network requests or could be the result of employees accidentally or maliciously allowing attackers access to corporate networks.

Infographic: 2016 State of OpenStack Adoption and Key Use Cases

VMblog and CloudCow surveyed nearly 700 technology professionals and members of organizational management in order to gauge people's understanding and adoption of OpenStack; as well, to find out how the market is using the technology.

The survey reflects a wide range of industries and company sizes, ranging from less than 10 to more than 10,000 employees.  Data was also representative across the globe, with the majority of respondents coming from North and South America, followed by Europe.

The internet of things, as it has become known, is gathering speed and momentum and nowhere was that more apparent than in the auto industry. Innovation is everywhere. Consider, for starters, the new BMW 7 Series which boasts tech straight out of the future, like ‘’touchless” control of the audio system’s volume control, wireless phone charging and a world-first remote control parking feature.

Dispel cloud computing confusion with our 3 Layers infographic

Grazed from EveryCloud. Author: Editorial Staff.

The cloud can be a difficult concept to wrap your head around. What exactly is the Cloud? When are you using it? Where is it found? Sure, the cloud is useful for backing up files and accessing globally distributed software, but how does one pin down those nebulous definitions? To make matters worse, terms like “PaaS” and “SaaS” have popped up recently, further mystifying peoples’ already foggy understanding.

Fortunately we’ve put together a simple infographic breaking down the three layers of cloud computing ­ PaaS, IaaS and SaaS ­ by explaining just what each one does and how it contributes to cloud computing as a whole. From providing core computer infrastructure like operating systems and file storage at a global level, to consumer-facing software users can download or access through their web browser, these three layers encompass pretty much everything about the cloud...
