The evolution of the datacentre
Company executives have a lot of big decisions to make when it comes to their datacentres. There is compelling argument to do away with it all together and transfer all the data into some outsourced facility. But there are also reasons to keep the datacentre on-premise.

Desktop virtualisation: why it's still relevant
When the concept of desktop virtualisation arrived a few years ago, it promised the world. Where previously, businesses had to manage specifics, like what applications were loaded onto each PC manually, virtualisation allowed them do so remotely via centralised control. Desktop virtualisation, in effect, enables organisations to give their employees the flexibility to work anywhere, on any devices, but without compromising security. Virtualisation also protects a business in the case of an unforeseen event. If bad weather, for instance, prevented its employees from coming to work, it could have them work from home.
