Picture, for a moment, a young artist who just moved to New York City. He has big dreams of breaking into the world of high society art. Unfortunately, finishing even one painting isn’t as easy as he imagined. He has to find an apartment and a studio. Both of those require rent money, so he also needs to get a day job. Then there’s the matter of art supplies. So many details to consider, and he hasn’t even picked up a brush! Sometimes, software developers may feel like that struggling artist. Before you can create cool or useful new applications, you need to set-up and configure the underlying infrastructure, install software, back everything up and so on. How can you make it easier? ROK Tech recommends the benefits of cloud computing. Developers have already been utilizing the cloud via IaaS, but another emerging option is Platform as a Service.
It’s hard to imagine our lives without the constant connectivity of our smartphones, and yet just a few years ago we lived in such a world. What about the cloud and GPS? Can you imagine a week of your life without using these information technology tools? In a few short years, we will be saying the same thing about today’s emerging technologies that, for the moment, seem surreal and intangible and yet will soon be taken for granted aspects of our daily lives. Did you ever think you would be on the brink of robotics applications in industries across the board, or virtual reality for that matter? These are just a few of the emerging trends in information technology to keep your eye as their will inevitably be applications for them in your business, even if you can’t imagine how right now.

Redundant backups are becoming the norm across nearly every industry to which technology is central. Many companies are now turning to IT consultants to take care of their hosting and greater infrastructure to ensure that their service is always as secure as possible and completely uninterrupted. The right IT partner will ensure that you have all the specs you need that will best suit your specific industry needs. This kind of intentional partnership will ideally save you money in the long run on things like hiring extra staff to manage IT and getting workstation updates that could be avoided with virtualization. Technology consultants are invaluable in the process of ensuring you have the most redundant backups.
Most CAD related industries are incredibly competitive, with constant pressure to meet market demands, and do it faster than the competition. With the demands of this industry, no one can afford to waste any time with unfit CAD workstations. If you have a few of these in your midst and you’re starting to feel the lag, you have a few options: you can either purchase new workstations that will give your employees the computing power they need to work more efficiently, or you can consider virtualization. In a world that is becoming increasingly cloud-centered, virtualized CAD workstations are probably your best bet, and here’s why.
