IoT Gets More Practical
The Internet of Things (IoT) has exploded into concept rapidly, but the
questions still remain. What does it really mean to be connected? Why should
we be connected to everything?
The goal in 2016 is to provide the means to allow devices to report without
having to work nearly as hard. What could this look like in the near future? It’s

All Things Security
Security, security, security. Just as we expected the entire state of IT is
emphatically trying to catch up to the security trends and changes. Data breaches
continue to hit headlines more and more each day and no one wants to be next.

responding and reacting.

Let the data speak for itself! This mantra will continue to reign
in board meetings as employees aim to defend their successes and
failures in front of their members. This ability to quantify and measure actionable
steps is imperative, especially as technology bleeds into all aspects of business.
They say this year IT will focus on forecasting based on the data.
How will this affect the future of IT?
