Cloud Backup: The Simple Solution for Your Backup Needs

Imagine what would happen if your servers crashed tomorrow or an unexpected storm left your computers damaged or destroyed. Insurance would probably replace the equipment, but without proper backups, the data would be gone forever. Having a solid data backup solution is critical to the long-term safety of any business. So, what is the best data backup solution?

In the past, backing up and safely storing data was a tedious task that meant spending hours copying data to tapes, discs, or other storage media and then storing them in a location away from your main business location. Today, online cloud backup is becoming the backup method of choice for many individuals and businesses. What is cloud backup? Cloud backup is the process of transferring data via the Internet to an off-site cloud storage company that stores the data for you.

Affiliate Marketing: Future Trends in the Marketplace

Affiliate marketing, as always, will follow the successful trends in the global marketplace. Affiliate programs arise through precise forecasting of what will sell and what won’t. Just as bricks-and-mortar storefronts have to close their doors when business slows to a trickle, affiliate programs can’t maintain themselves unless affiliates can make money selling items as affiliates. And to know what items have the best chance of selling, you need to know the future trends evolving in the global marketplace. Here are some of the trends, not in any particular order, making their impact in the market and on the web:

· The Job Market (or lack of it): Unemployment is at an all-time high. The economy is not in great condition. More than ever, people are looking for ways to make money at home or to start their own small businesses. That means affiliate… Continue reading

Why Companies use SharePoint


Any business interested in participating in the global economy (and what business isn’t?) must have a robust data sharing system operating in real-time. Without capitalizing on some such system, employees lack the ability to effectively participate in a community of data and idea sharing. The challenge that small- and medium-sized companies face in providing such a community is typically cost effectiveness and lack of physical space required for hosting. One smart, increasingly popular solution is offsite managed hosting services. SharePoint hosting services are a prime example of one of these newly available, custom site hosts.

SharePoint hosting is cost-effective because your company doesn’t bear the burden of the on-site infrastructure usually required to make this level of accessibility possible. It’s beneficial to avoid the initial costs of servers, but the real savings come from elimination of the need for on-site resources to manage those servers. Using offsite SharePoint services saves… Continue reading

The Simple Object Access Protocol

Web Services (WS) are business logic components which provide functionality via the Internet using standard protocols such as HTTP. It can convert your application into a Web-application, which can publish its function or message to the rest of the world. I.e. WS describes a standardized way of integrating Web-based applications using the XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI open standards over an Internet protocol backbone.Thus it is a method of communication between two electronic devices over a network.

WS uses Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) in order to expose the business functionality. SOAP defines a standardized format in eXtensible Markup Language (XML) which can be exchanged between two entities over standard protocols such as HTTP. SOAP is platform independent so the consumer of a Web Service is therefore completely shielded from any implementation details about the platform exposing the Web Service. For the… Continue reading

The Business of Software Development – Not For Nerds Or Techno Geeks

I have seen it happening in almost all the seminars and conferences that I have attended. As businesspersons, we enjoy the opportunity of networking during the gourmet coffee (if we are lucky) breaks and lunch between long sessions and powerpoint presentations provide us. Plates and glasses in hand, small groups form on the floor of the recreation lounge; and light to moderately intense conversations blossom forth. Talk to these groups about anything under the sun: be it planning, be it the latest regulation or ruling on taxes, be it the latest opportunity in some exotic venture, be it the latest rumor about some takeover or acquisition, the participants are brimming with it all, eagerly exchanging notes. But, the moment somebody utters the word “software”, you can almost see visions of high-tech computer labs, of nerds and techno-geeks… Continue reading
