By utilising a hybrid cloud system you can host more sensitive information on traditional infrastructure in a personal cloud while maintaining an off site cloud for your less sensitive information.

Office 365 – The Answer You’ve Been Looking For

Is Office 365 really the solution for your small business?

Office 365 can help your employees work together and collaborate in new and more efficient ways. But, Office 365 is more than just a set of tools. It’s a new way of working.

Here are four reasons small business owners should consider using Office 365.

Stay up and running, no matter what happens

Let’s face it. If your in-house system crashes or your office building is destroyed by a fire or flood, you’re stuck. You have no data, servers or website. If you send your data to the cloud, all your business documents and applications, such as email, will always available. You’ll be up and running, no matter what happens.

Data security

Data security in the cloud isn’t an issue with Office 365. Office 365 has built-in security so small businesses can focus on the important things. You always know where your data is and who has access to it. You can also remotely wipe all data should you lose your mobile device.

So, go ahead and store your data safely in the cloud. Storing your data online also keeps it safe in case something unfortunate happens. Imagine losing your laptop or breaking it? Thanks to 1TB of OneDrive online storage, your data is safer than ever before.

You and your employees can work anywhere at anytime

Working remotely used to mean you needed help from an IT friend or cousin to set up a Virtual Private Network (VPN) so you could access your files from the office. With Office 365, this isn’t necessary. You don’t need any special configuration or IT skills. An internet connection is all you need and then you can start working. It’s that simple!

Organisation has never been so easy

Meetings, email and contact management are a big part of everyday life in a small business. When you use Office 365, email, calendar and contacts are all synchronised to work together. Update a contact on your mobile phone and it will be automatically updated across all your devices. This is a really cool feature to help small businesses get the most from Office 365. You can also access the same data from any device. Save a document on your PC and continue working on it on your mobile or tablet.

10 Things That May Be Obsolete By 2020

The IT world moves at a rapid rate. This is due to the speed of technological advancements.

While we are unsure of the wildly innovative ideas the future will bring, we have a pretty good idea of which devices will fall into disuse.

Here are 10 things that may be obsolete by 2020.

1. Hard drives
Soon, everyone will keep their information in “the cloud” and there will be no need for physical storage devices.

2. Thumb drives
Thumb drives may be a convenient way to carry data around in your pocket, but thanks to cloud computing you won’t have to carry anything at all.

3. Fax Machines
Let’s face it — fax machines should have disappeared long ago. Once paperwork goes, these dinosaurs are going, too.

4. CDs
People rarely buy music anymore, much less in any physical form. Streaming services are the way of the future.

5. Remote Controls
You won’t have to search for the remote or replace its batteries when voice commands and smartphone controls become widespread ways to operate your devices.

6. Paper Work
With Google Docs and digital signatures becoming the norm, contracts, medical forms, and other documents will cease to exist in paper form.

7. Home Phones
When did you last use your landline telephone at home? For a growing number of Australians, that’s a moot question: they just don’t have one.
Data released by the Australian Communications and Media Authority on November 30 shows that 5.78 million Australians – about 31 per cent – have no fixed landline at home.

8. Paper Receipts
Officeworks receipts are so long they have become a meme. But even they have begun offering digital receipts. Many vendors already send receipts via email, so it won’t be long until it’s the new standard.

9. Passwords
Apple debuted FaceID this year, while Microsoft’s Windows Hello facial recognition system has been in place since 2015. Forget letters, numbers, and special characters — biometric passwords will be the norm.

10. Headphones with cords
From Apple’s AirPods to Bluetooth headphones, the headphone jack’s days are numbered.
