Wireless is a very generic term that may refer to numerous forms of non-wired transmission, including AM and FM radio, TV, cellphones, portable phones and wireless LANs. Various techniques are used to provide wireless transmission, including infrared line of sight, cellular, microwave, satellite, packet radio and spread spectrum.
In this Gigaom Research webinar, we will discuss the technologies that will enable this perceptive intelligence. We will also evaluate the long-term future and provide advice to technologists and manufacturers looking to participate in the coming era of device intelligence.
As the Internet of Everything (IoE) drives exponential change — and opportunity — customers and retailers face a complex maze of shopping journeys.
Mobility and apps now represent a disruption similar in scope to what we saw with e-commerce in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In the second quarter of 2014, total discretionary retail spending rose 3 percent; e-commerce rose 10 percent; and mobile commerce rose 47 percent.
Building a mobile collaboration or bring-your-own-device solution requires three things: mobile applications, the mobile devices themselves and the network that underpins them both. Often, the network and its capabilities take a back seat to applications and devices—which can ultimately lead to poor performance or an inflexible infrastructure. Find out how to develop the type of network that truly supports mobile devices, applications and unified communications programs, thereby establishing the foundation for stronger mobile solutions.
As mobile technology evolves, it’s bringing rapid change to enterprises everywhere, so it’s essential to know the latest trends and how to build on them to create real business benefits.

Organizations are largely relying on TCO and ROI models in determining whether or not to invest in a unified communications (UC) solution. But what other factors are they considering? You’ll better understand the value that firms are deriving from UC, the status of its adoption, and the barriers to full implementation.
With users connecting to unsecured public networks and running multiple applications from both company and personal devices, sensitive corporate data is more vulnerable than ever before. For your security policies to be effective, they need to bring all devices and applications under IT control and regulate user behavior
With users connecting to unsecured public networks and social media platforms on both company-owned and personal devices, sensitive data can now be accessed--and lost--from more endpoints than ever before.
Virtualization promises cost savings, improved productivity, and the ability to transform your business. But too often security can either detract from the performance gains that virtualization promises, or just not give you the protection you need. Getting the balance right is critical.
For virtualization security, there’s no one size fits all solution…and trying to fit your organization’s specific needs into the wrong security product can be a costly mistake. Do you know how to pick the right option for your organization?
Is email still the “killer app” it used to be? Social technologies and mobile capabilities are changing the way people communicate in the workplace. Many organizations are employing BYOD strategies and embracing social business tools like file sharing, chat, wikis and communities. In the past, email was used for storing and sharing documents and having conversations with groups. Tasks which are much better suited for today's social cloud collaboration tools. Email usage may be evolving, but email is not dead. In fact, everyone in the organization from executives to factory workers needs email to stay connected. And many organizations are moving their messaging to cloud to take advantage of the flexibility and cost savings a cloud environment provides.
The introduction of personal and mobile endpoints is dramatically reshaping the landscape for group video collaboration. IT leaders should align their video portfolios for maximum utilization and strategic fit with their related investments in collaboration and unified communications.
This study includes an analysis of 11 worldwide enterprise videoconferencing equipment vendors. To qualify for inclusion in this IDC MarketScape study, vendors must offer a portfolio of enterprise-class videoconferencing products, solutions, and services either directly and/or through channel partners.Basic capabilities of the vendor offerings should include support for high-definition (HD) video and audio technology, availability of data collaboration tools and applications for use within a video
session, and the ability to integrate with UC portfolios and business applications, among other criteria.

It’s not just about reducing travel... The value that video adds goes far beyond the removal of the need to travel. Video isn’t just in a ‘conference room’ – it’s wherever people choose to work. Use video for your next meeting to overcome the expectation that ongoing help and support is required. Hold your next external meeting over video to give it that personal touch.
Most established organizations have large IT departments with staff exclusively devoted to IT security. Education is a key
component of this defensive strategy in today’s cybercriminal ecosystem. If you don’t know it’s there, you can’t defend against it.
