TO SAAS OR NOT TO SAAS?
Today with cloud computing, every segment of the technology industry is changed dramatically and ISVs are no exception. Not so long ago, buying software involved a high one-off purchase cost for a solution that you could install on your local computer or server. With more companies preferring to use SaaS applications rather than deal with the time and expense of implementing and maintaining on-premise software, ISV`s are transitioning from an old model of packaged software to SaaS. SaaS comes with added value, it`s browser-based and constantly evolving.Read More
ON-DEMAND WORKFORCE AS A FUTURE OF WORKING
Mobility and remote working are changing rapidly the landscape of the business today. People are opting more and more for the freedom to work where and for whom they choose.

The following post was based on “Will HTML5 browsers become the new go-to VDI client?” by Brien Posey, published on Nov 2, 2016, on Tech Target.
More and more browser-based clients are slowly becoming the standard as many cloud-based applications are using the browser interface.

From smartphones and tablets to laptops and television, 90% of all media interactions today are screen-based. As consumers, we balance our time between smartphones, tablets, PCs and televisions, meanwhile learning to use these devices altogether to achieve our goals. (1)

The following text is a contribution from a freelance writer, Jenny Holt.
It all seemed like such a perfect idea. My office job would switch into a remote job – I would work from home, spend more time with the kids and the dog, cut out the dreaded commute, and spend more time gardening, baking, and reading books in the conservatory.
