Will the iPad truly change IT?

You have probably heard of the iPad by now.  If not, welcome to Earth.  The iPad has proven to be a game changer in personal technology devices, but has it truly been a revolution in changing the way IT staffs function and set policy?  The following link is to an article that suggests that if it has not already begun that paradigm shift, it soon will.  It details how most younger people entering the workplace expect to be able to use their own devices in the enterprise. It's worth a read.

Millennials, Technology and Staying Connected

Ever hear someone say that access to technology is becomming a generational expectation? Well, they were more right than you might realize. Check out this article on GigaOm that discusses the use of Wi-Fi technology in helping the younger set maintain relationships.

Why Connected Real Estate (CRE)?

The purpose, first and foremost, to create the Information Network is to create a collaborative, unified infrastructure aimed at cost recovery, reduced capital to build, greatly reduced operating expenses, and centralization of building management systems, resulting ultimately in lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). It happens to be a great benefit that the convergence and integration of all these building systems, including HVAC control, power metering, water monitoring, lighting control, access control, IP surveillance, digital signage networks (DSN), etc. has been facilitated by the emergence of open, standards-based Internet Protocol (IP) communication standards. This, in turn, allows the Information Network to realize the powerful potential to also provide tenant services, including Voice over IP (VoIP), high speed internet, Wi-Fi, physical security, and potential future IP Television services.

Use Technologies Available Today as an Asset to Cut Costs

Times are tough and prudence is particularly necessary in a down economy; however, there are ways to spend smart money and save. Technologies are available today to help companies do exactly what they should be doing to weather the economy and better prepare themselves for the future. It can be used to drive productivity, save operational costs of owning or occupying a building, reduce capital costs of constructing a new building, and/or provide the potential to create revenue streams for the owner or manager. The question is, "Which technologies are important and which ones would just be nice to have?" Today, the nice to haves can wait! The key is to plan ahead and build a foundation for the future possibilities of all of your technology needs AND wants. Through strategy sessions with all stakeholders within an organization, these two lists are compiled and then prioritized by analyzing ROI and risk. This entire process starts with the layer 1 connectivity, or structured cabling system. If you don't get that right, then your scalability and future expansion are in jeopardy of being obsolete before their time or not even capable of implementing the technologies available when you want. After that, look at building operations and automation. What most organizations don't realize is that millions can be saved by coordinating the technologies required for today's building ops with the folks in IT. Internet Protocol (IP) technologies are quickly becoming the de facto standard for the communication protocol of all low-voltage automation systems in a building; therefore, they use the same type of network infrastructure as the IT technologies (READ: Reduced CapEx to build and implement). If facilities and IT are aligned, where a partner consultant like iconnect Technologies (www.iconnectllc.com) is involved, then costs are displaced or eliminated completely in many of the traditional trades used to operate a building.

At a minimum, it's prudent to explore and discuss the possibilities.
