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.”
Digital security and surveillance (DSS) tech is getting smarter. Using the latest advances in artificial intelligence, microprocessing and the Internet of Things, it’s changing the way we interact with our digital hardware.
If your customers are interested in video surveillance and edge-based analytics, now could be the right time to show them the latest in smart DSS.
More Affordable Tech
The era of 5G mobile data is about to begin.
Some 50 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices are estimated to be coming online over the next 5 to 10 years. To serve them, faster, more efficient communication will be needed, too.
Key to full-scale IoT are high speeds, low latency and full support for low-bitrate devices and sensors. 5G technology promises all that — and more.
Apple, beware: Microsoft is clearly gunning for the creativity market. The company’s Windows 10 Creators Update is coming soon — reportedly in April — bringing to the forefront 3-D production, virtual reality and social connectivity.
The recent introduction of the “phase two” 7th Generation Intel Core processors brought with it an array of new features focused on business, security and multimedia.
However, extreme performance enhancements were not on the menu. The 7th gen Intel Core processor family, originally codenamed “Kaby Lake,” is based on the same 14nm architecture as its predecessor, Skylake. The 7th gen processors are faster, sure. But for the average user, the extra speed is nothing to write home about.
It’s official: Skylake is yesterday’s news.
PC makers are showing renewed interest in the creative-computing market. If your clients routinely work with audio, video and or computer-aided design (CAD), now might be a good time to present them with some cool new options.
Microsoft: A Bite out of Apple
Tablet prices are coming down — way down. As the R&D costs of last year’s microarchitecture development melt away, OEMs including Microsoft, Amazon and ASUS are focusing on high sales volume over profit margins.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly finding its way into all aspects of our lives. And it’s growing fast. Cisco predicts the global IoT market will be worth $14.4 trillion by 2022.
With so much potential revenue in the IoT market, forward-looking channel partners are vying for a better foothold. But given limited resources, what’s the smartest way to approach this herculean task?
