Mimecast has just released some new and interesting research: - The Shape of Email Report.The report itself is quite interesting, 500 IT Managers interviewed about their opinions on how employees in their organisation use email and the quality of their users inboxes - but what is probably more interesting is the fact that Mimecast has embarked on a rather daring adventure.
I was browsing through some of my social networks earlier today when I was struck by how interconnected everything has truly become.More than just how interconnected, but how difficult it is to clear up the digital breadcrumbs of your life.
A few weeks ago I wrote a blog piece called "Bring Your Own Delusion (BYOD)".In this piece I explored the thought that reactions to recent BYOD noise are largely emotional.
Everyone I speak to these days is asking me to talk to them about BYOD (Bring your Own Device) and how it impacts on corporate networks and CIO’s decision making processes.What to me is the most interesting thing is that from any surfing around and looking for comments on the Internet, you’ll find two very distinct schools of thought have evolved and they seem to be pretty equally balanced.
