Microsoft Office is part of the iPad arsenal and 35 million users have downloaded since it was launched in March. Now Microsoft has issued several updates, which it describes as the features users request most often.

The upgrades — improvements for the Word, PowerPoint and Excel applications — are designed to enhance the user experience.

EMC Syncplicity Redefines Work for the Mobile-First Era

2014-31-July-jeetu-patel.jpg

If there’s anything EMC Syncplicity General Manager Jeetu Patel is more passionate about than security and functionality of his company’s Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution, it’s Syncplicity’s app.

“Have you seen it?” he asked the last time his team unveiled one.

He was as enthusiastic as a dad whose kid had just hit his first home run.

And though Patel’s passion goes a long way, it’s the app itself that’s the real story. You don’t wish that you were using a hip, consumer solution when you work with it. Instead you wish that the app you use to share photos, files, and messages with your friends and family was more like Syncplicity. And that’s exactly what Patel wants.

Why AirWatch by VMWare Stands Out from the EFSS Crowd

AirWatch co-founder and General Manager John Marshall won't say anything negative about his competitors in the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) space — even off the record.  He won’t even comment why Secure Content Locker, AirWatch’s Mobile Content Management solution, might give any one of the 100 plus other vendors competing for the same customers a run for their money.

“We’re very respectful of other players. They’ll be better at some things. We’ll be better at others,” he said.

CrossIdeas Acqusition Underlines IBM's Security Drive

2014-31-July-crossideas.jpg

IBM seems hungry for acquisitions, even though its revenues are down two percent on the year. The latest buy comes in the shape of CrossIdeas, a Rome, Italy-based cyber security vendor.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, which means Big Blue probably got it relatively cheap. It also underlines IBM’s growing strength in the security space after it took third position as the biggest security vendor globally after Symantec and McAfee, pushing Trend Micros into fourth place.

Mac News: OneNote Upgraded, But What About Office?

2014-7-31 OneNote for Mac.jpg

Microsoft has just announced major upgrades for OneNote for Mac and iOS. They're interesting upgrades and point to a future where Microsoft works on cross-platform development, offering everyone access to everything.

It’s a great vision. And while Microsoft is making progress, it is still far from reality. While upgrades and access to OneNote will be a major plus for users, there’s still nothing for Office for Mac.

Top 5 Internet of Things Security Concerns

2014-30-July-hp-iot-security.jpg

Security concerns are developing faster than the Internet of Things (IoT). But HP claims it is tackling IoT related concerns head on and has identified what it describes as the top five issues for businesses to consider.

The research, carried out by Fortify, part of HP Enterprise Security Products, confirms those security concerns. It shows 70 percent of the most commonly used IoT devices contain vulnerabilities, including password security, encryption and general lack of granular user access permissions.

Qlik Ready for Battle in Data Visualization

Qlik Technologies last week took a major step to boost its positioning against key competitor Tableau Software. It introduced Qlik Sense Desktop, an application targeted at the fast-growing, self-serve data visualization market.

Qlik Sense is the initial piece of Qlik’s .Next offering (the main Server edition is scheduled for a September launch), which aims to make tools for business intelligence (BI) easier to use for a wider variety of enterprise employees. The Server edition will feature server-side deployment, a mobile-first focus,  collaboration and expanded enterprise capabilities.

Google Smacks MS Office With Better Docs Collaboration

2014-7-29 Google Docs Enterprise Collaboration.jpg

Google is making it even easier to move from Microsoft Office to Google Docs.

At last month’s Google I/O conference, Google gave Office users the ability to edit documents in Docs, which was one of the sticking points for those considering a jump to Google.

We didn’t think it could do much more to make Docs attractive, but it has. Like last month’s QuickOffice integration, this enhancement is small but significant. The upgrade comes in the shape of tracking changes.

Design Information Systems with SharePoint in Mind

Any company that stores information on a computer is storing knowledge. But not all companies have an effective knowledge management system in place to manage that information. That depends on how the system was planned and how it is managed on an ongoing basis.

Whether you have a new system or an existing one that encompasses several different platforms, it's important to assess whether it is delivering all that it can for your organization. How can you do that? An (enterprise content management) ECM Reference Architecture can help you understand gaps and redundancies from a platform perspective.

OKCupid's Secret Formula for Finding Love Revealed

2014-28-July-couple-in-love.jpg

“We experiment on human beings,” so said Christian Rudder, co-founder and president of matchmaking site OKCupid in a blog post.

You might have thought that he and his colleagues work tirelessly as data scientists trying to help Romeos of this world find their Juliets … and sometimes, they do.

But they’ve done other things, too. Like tell their customers that they’re 90 percent matches when, in truth, the likelihood was closer to 30 percent.

Why’d they do that, you may be wondering. To test the power of suggestion is the short answer. And it turns out that it’s pretty powerful.

People who were told they should like each other did, even though statistically, that shouldn’t have been the case. “The mere myth of compatibility works just as well as the truth,” Rudder wrote.

Pivotal, Hortonworks and a New Hadoop Management Standard?

Gartner analyst Merv Adrian wrote an interesting blog post earlier this year titled “Hadoop is in the Eye of the Beholder.” In it, he posed an interesting question. What is Hadoop?

We’re not going to rehash his argument.  It’s a fine and even funny post. You should read it. But if you don’t, suffice it to say that he concluded that it’s not a question that’s easily answered. As a result, if you’re an enterprise that is “doing Hadoop,” “buying Hadoop,” or “shopping for Hadoop,” what exactly are you talking about?

Enterprises Still Crippled By Document Management Chaos

document-management-roll-up.jpg

Even with the vacations, there is still some notable news in the document management space — and not all of it is good.

Docurated this week discovered that enterprises are still drowning in content and documents despite the large number of vendors that have introduced apps to manage both.

And both Kodak and Parascript released or upgraded new capture solutions and M-Files upgraded its mobile apps.
