Collaboration tools – how about a little more?

Four men after sport. They've polished off the pizza and are sitting over the obligatory espresso. Four small cups hover over the table. Each is flanked by the unavoidable biscuit ("Prodotto originale"). Bernie: "I don't like these biscuits.  Does anyone want it?" Tom: "There's probably wheat flour in it. I'm allergic." John: "I'd really rather have a tiramisu right now." And suddenly I'm sitting there with four biscuits. A fantastic metaphor for the future workplace, or smart office, and its…

The secure future workplace? Just hybrid, please!

Buzzwords like "public cloud first" or even "public cloud only" are all the rage. Agile, innovative, forward-looking companies hardly have a choice: they all rely on the public cloud. Its advantages are well-known: simplicity, dynamism, cost-effectiveness. Agility is great for new, internal applications in core processes. But when companies bet on reliability, they have to go whole hog. That means the collaboration tools for the future workplace cannot lag behind. So off to the public cloud we go. The future…

Collaboration tools – as you like it

Microsoft Office is the standard for the digital workplace – and not only among Baby Boomers. Even when you talk to college or high school students: hardly anyone can imagine a world without Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. As such, these Microsoft products have become part of our human (IT) heritage, despite the various open-source initiatives. No matter whether they're provided from a public cloud, a private cloud, or a hybrid model. Will they remain the collaboration tools of the future…

Two-class society

At times, new generations of employees put the established culture of work systems and collaboration to the test. The provision of new, “fancy” IT equipment for efficient working is only the tip of the iceberg: the IT department also faces the challenge of managing the new world together with the old one. Upside-down world: Generation Y has greater leverage It isn't always just digitalization that changes our society and how we work. Sometimes, it's simply the population pyramid – same…

About file sharing and lost identities

The marketing people have once again stuffed the master file with lots of huge pictures. PowerPoint is crippled, and Outlook refuses to transport the file. And my boss is pleading with me to get the file to him, because he wants to present it in a management meeting 10 minutes from now. Scenarios like this will no longer scare office workers. They're IT-horror stories of yesteryear. Thanks to file sharing. File sharing – data from the cloud File sharing made…

Hybrid hype, everywhere

"Hybrid" is the buzzword of the day. And for good reason. Particularly where workplace systems for communication and collaboration are involved, hybrid approaches – operating a mixed private/public cloud – can deliver significant cost reductions. Hybrid is everywhere My neighbor has a big, black VW bus. He uses it whenever he drives his sons and their friends to soccer practice or when they take long vacation trips. Next to it is a white Golf, which he uses for shopping, going…

Energy efficiency cuts colocation costs

The electricity bill: in recent years, opening it was almost a pleasant experience. No price increases. But then came 2019 – and with the new year, an increase of five percent. Although it's only mildly aggravating for me as a private consumer, it's a relevant business dimension for data center operators such as colocation providers. Accordingly, colocation customers also faced higher bills starting in early 2019. Green policies demand energy-efficient data centers In green times like these, with an increasing…

Data center seeks parking space

Gridlocks are very much a part of the real world, as I recently read from my fellow blogger Hermann Hänle. Finding an affordable parking space is becoming a Herculean task in some of Germany's big cities. Now imagine that you're looking for a place to park your data center, not your car. Data centers are getting long in the tooth Although a data center isn't quite as mobile – and above all, quite as compact – as a Smart car,…

The engine room of digitalization

We've become used to digitalization. We chat, play games, search for restaurants in unfamiliar cities, book travel, buy necessary and unnecessary things, and work on the move. Any number of things could be added to the list. And of course, we assume that our PC or smartphone is the center of the universe. That's probably another interpretation of customer centricity. The cloud as the backbone of digitalization What we are missing here is that in a world where we're accessing…
