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.
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.
Today’s the day when Microsoft begins releasing the Windows 10 Creators Update. Here are 7 things solution providers need to know about this latest version of the popular PC operating system:
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.
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.
Because malware gets much of the attention, you might think it’s the biggest cyber threat. But a new report, based on a recent survey of security researchers, finds otherwise.
With today’s smartphones so powerful (and expensive), the idea of a phone doubling as a computer makes a certain kind of sense. Why lug around both a laptop and phone if just 1 device could do the work of both, and at roughly half the cost?
If you have small-business clients who want to keep workstations and servers on-premises, Intel has a new processor family for you.
Intel yesterday introduced its Xeon E3-1200 v6 processor family. There are 8 versions, all designed for both entry-level workstations used by business pros and entry-level servers used by SMBs. The new processors are shipping now.
