TelePacific Talks | February 2012
The Value of Online Data Protection
Business professionals and IT managers are increasingly drawn to the cost effectiveness of online services to back up and recover corporate data distributed throughout their business on desktops, laptops and mobile devices, according to a recent white paper from Autonomy Systems Ltd.
The paper, How to Measure ROI for Online PC Backup and Recovery, explores the business case for deploying online data protection services rather than continuing current methods of backup and recovery, or implementing other onsite alternatives. It also highlights "soft" benefits that are difficult to quantify but add real value to companies evaluating any data protection strategy. Read more.
For many of the reasons above, your customers may be interested in RemoteStor data recovery products and OneSecure managed security services. Over the past two years we've invested substantial capital and human resources into these solutions and hired product experts who specialize in guiding customers through the assessment process to help them discover if these products make sense for their business.

CIOs Starting to Embrace
A recent white paper, Managing the iPad in the Enterprise, written by TechTarget's Linda Tucci and Michael Brandenburg reveals that more than 80 percent of Fortune 100 companies have deployed or are testing iPads. Carolina Milanesi, research vice president in the mobile device group at Gartner Inc. told Tucci "our advice to CIOs has been to go out and get one and make sure you know what this thing is, because like it or not, it is coming into your enterprise."
Tucci reports that CIOs are increasingly comparing notes about how to deploy mobile devices in a manner that ensures corporate data is secure while accommodating employee-owned device trends in the workplace, commonly called BYOD (bring your own device). Dick Escue, CIO at RehabCare Inc., told Tucci, "We refuse to be that IT department that was always saying no to everything. If you think you are going to stand there as an enterprise and say no in the face of unbounded technology for the consumer, you're foolhardy." Read more.
Social Media and Donuts
If you haven't been using social media to promote your business or you're just scratching the surface and could use a primer on the most popular websites, here's a whimsical explanation: Donuts.
There are ample reasons to consider investing in social media. Using various social media can help you improve customer relations, communicate product news and updates, drive more website traffic, generate media coverage and demonstrate your company's unique personality, to name just a few benefits. But the viral nature of the platform is perhaps the most exciting because it sometimes allows you to catch lightening in a bottle.
Social media explained in donuts is a good example. A creative team at Three Ships Media came up with the concept, snapped a photo and posted it on Facebook and Twitter, had a beer, a good laugh and went home for the weekend, as explained on the company's blog. A few days later, more than 60,000 people had "liked" it on Facebook and thousands more Tweeted about it.
