|4 ways to ensure DR is successful|
Imagine getting up on a Monday after a great long weekend spent with the family, driving to the office, only to find the building on fire. Most people would be dumbfounded, or feel a profound sense of loss. If you have a Disaster Recovery (DR) system, you wouldn’t have to worry, (well not as much anyway), as could rest assured that your documents and systems would be up and running soon, with little to no loss of important data.
Here are four ways to ensure your DR plan is sufficient and company is disaster-ready.
Are your systems compliant?
Another issue with DR software is that it’s often not used, lying dormant for years. You should regularly check and ensure the software meets modern compliance standards, is up-to-date and licenses have not expired. You should also be aware of how the software you use integrates and interacts with the DR software. For example, an upgrade to a new email server, may not communicate well with your DR software.
What’s the status of your backup server?

|Worm or virus, what’s the difference?|
Computer terminology can be one of the hardest things to wrap your head around. It’s can all seem like mumbo jumbo, with made-up or adopted words. Some of the more confusing terminology comes from programs and software with harmful intent. Is the program infecting your computer a Trojan horse, worm or malware though? It can be hard to differentiate them sometimes.
|Optimal productivity of remote employees|
Productivity of your employees can be a hard enough thing to manage and encourage when your employees work in the same office as you, let alone employees who work remotely. While it’s a dream for many to work remotely from home, very few employees find they can pull it off. For those that do, bosses need to ensure that they’re as productive as onsite employees.
|Great new Microsoft Office features|
Few programs are more useful than Microsoft’s Office which can be found in nearly every business and home and has become the go-to program for nearly everything related to information development or gathering. Microsoft has recently introduced a new version of Office, Office 15, more commonly known as Office 2013. This latest development looks to bring drastic changes to Office.
|Better decisions due to analytics|
Have you ever sat at a metaphorical crossroads, faced with a decision you have to make, but have no idea which option is best? If so you’re not alone, business owners and managers are faced with decisions on an almost constant basis, many of which can overwhelm the most seasoned entrepreneur. Many successful companies employ business analytics (BA) to help them with their decisions. Does your company use BA?
