HP has got its groove going.
Last week market watcher IDC said HP had become the No. 1 PC supplier worldwide for the first time since early 2013. HP topped Lenovo in this year’s first quarter by more than 820,000 units.
In February we pointed out that while the overall PC business was tepid in Q1, HP’s PC business grew by 8 percent, in part by focusing on devices for businesses.
Intel’s latest memory innovation, called Optane, is now available to enterprise customers running large server arrays. Smaller form factors designed for laptops and PCs will be available in the second half, Intel says.
No, but sometimes it surely seems that way.
Just as Amazon has transformed the retail world, its Amazon Web Services unit is transforming the world of data centers and IT management.
This public-cloud service provider is upturning the authority of CIOs and creating huge new price pressures on traditional enterprise-IT suppliers. I believe it’s even creating the possibility for a world without central IT organizations. Who will need the huge cost and complexity of a central IT group when you can just put all your computing and storage in the public cloud?
Found it challenging to sell more PCs this year? You’re not alone. New figures from market watchers IDC and Gartner point to a Q1 market that was either flat or down slightly, depending on how you define it.

When it comes to artificial intelligence, Intel is not only talking the talk, but also walking the walk.
First the talk. This past November, in an online editorial entitled “Intel’s AI commitment to deliver a better world,” Intel CEO Brian Krzanich wrote that AI is not just a cool new technology, but “the next major turning point in human history.” He also promised that Intel would make major investments in AI technology.
Find it difficult to keep your clients’ PCs up to date? Then take a little pity on Microsoft.
Starting next Tuesday, April 11, the company will begin rolling out its Windows 10 Creators Update to something like 400 million desktop and laptop devices around the world. The process could take months.
This new version of the Win10 OS will be offered as a free update, and it will offer new features that include:
Here’s why: More than 15 percent of small and medium businesses (SMBs) have been the victims of cyber attacks. And a whopping 60 percent had to close their doors within 6 months of a data breach.
Yet when asked which issues they’re most concerned about, fewer than a third (28%) of SMB executives mentioned the safety and security of their technology, email and documents.
So here’s a threat that could close their business. Yet only about 3 in 10 think it’s even an issue.
Xerox wants to change the way your clients interact with printers. Now they’ll print with customized workflows, apps and cloud connectivity.
That's one of the big ideas behind Xerox’s launch last week of no fewer than 29 new multifunction printers (MFPs). Xerox says its new printer designs, dubbed VersaLink and AltaLink, will act as what it calls “smart, connected workplace assistants.”
Q: What do your clients have in common with the U.S. Democratic National Committee (DNC)?
A: Both are subject to cyber attacks involving non-malware.
