Cloud computing is on the uprise and already on its way to playing a huge role in IT. Some say that introducing the cloud will solve all of our IT problems by providing simple and flexible mobile working for employees without the need for access to a company’s servers.

Are you looking forward to getting back into the office as soon as possible or are you a convert to working from home? For me, the choice is clear. I’ve been an ardent supporter of Team Home Office for many years, but Germany as a whole is split. Businesses here are busy discussing how to get back to normal with much stricter hygiene rules front and centre, but there is no blueprint for who should work where.

Cast an eye over the market and one thing becomes clear: Customers are increasingly turning their backs on perpetual licences in favour of flexible options. Citrix has spotted this and is adapting its business model accordingly. From 1 October 2020, Citrix is switching to a subscription licensing model to reduce the complexity of their offering.

To find out more about the background to the zero trust concept and why companies should act now, read on.

Businesses want their cloud services to be hosted in German data centres. The services should be highly available and flexible in line with a hybrid cloud approach, and deployment should be from a central data centre but also various other locations. A self-service portal and a transparent, calculable invoicing model are also essential. We’ll show you how Bechtle can support you with this model and secure a connection to the cloud by means of a Managed Firewall solution.

Systematic monitoring of IT infrastructure has been part of the daily routine of system administrators for many years, but as the importance of the topic has grown, so have the requirements for IT monitoring. For this reason, IT decision-makers should definitely address the issue of IT monitoring. If companies put their monitoring on the right footing, they not only safeguard the performance and general condition of their corporate IT, but also gain important insights for setting the course of their own IT strategy.

When it comes to modernising IT infrastructures, this impacts the core of the company as well—the ERP system. However, conventional ERP systems are not flexible enough to be quickly adapted to changes, which is why a growing number of businesses are being forced to make the switch to modern, intelligent ERP systems. For businesses using SAP, that means switching to S/4 HANA now!

Advancing digitalisation means data are being generated absolutely everywhere. The value of these data, how you can leverage them and what this means for your business are all questions that you can answer with Bechtle and Splunk.

For many years, a lot of German companies have rejected the idea of integrating home office and location-agnostic working into their corporate culture, but events of the past year have left them little choice as the world of work has undergone fundamental changes. Experts predict that some of these changes will be permanent and we have witnessed the birth of new world of work with digital leadership, less office-based working, fewer trips and more online-first conferences, and the use of digital collaborations tools characterising our working days.

Way too often, companies, projects and people are hampered by the same recurring or even persistent challenges. A company may struggle with increasingly fierce competition and dwindling demand; a project may once again fall short of time, budget and quality targets; or people may find themselves personally unhappy with the state of collaboration within their team.

Businessmen have always said that purchasing is the key to profits, but this idea falls short in today’s world as surveys are increasingly showing that companies and consumers are less likely to to be motivated to make a purchase just because the price is low. Instead, sustainability is growing in importance, with consumers wanting to know how a product was manufactured, how transparent the supply chain is, what working conditions are like at production facilities, and how CO2-neutral the production process is. Modern companies think ahead, always have an eye on the big picture and face up to their sustainability responsibilities.

“Can I work from home tomorrow? Someone’ll have to let the heating person in.” This is not a sentence you’ll hear very often anymore, because in a lot of companies, people connecting to the office within their own four walls is nothing worth talking about. Flexibility is the magic word. Yet the amenities of a modern workplace are not without their challenges, as the realities of existing structures often defy the hybrid workplace. Empowering a modern work style is not just a matter of giving people the right tools; it also takes a much more radical cultural shift.

Practical, compact and flexible. The perfect definition of 2-in-1 notebooks aka Convertibles and Detachables. Half notebook, half tablet, these devices can be adapted to the user’s needs. And being portable, they combine the convenience and light weight of a tablet with the performance of a notebook and are becoming more popular as a result. But what are the advantages of these 2-in-1 devices and what should you look out for when shopping?

Digitalisation is changing the way people live and work. This has also changed the expectations that end users have towards applications, especially in terms of usability, as badly designed apps can now easily frustrate customers. Something we can all relate to from experience. On the other hand, you also have many examples of how a positive user experience can really bind your customer to a software or even a brand as a whole. Expectations towards digital services have changed—customer satisfaction is now key. In this blog, we’ll outline the opportunities digital transformation can bring to the finance and insurance sector and how you can make them work for you.

One man’s joy is another man’s pain. While New Work concepts can bring with them plenty of benefits such as more flexible working and a better work-life balance for employees, for IT departments, they mean having to manage environments that are becoming ever-more complex. It’s a job made even more difficult by the increasing number of cyberattacks, but modern IT deployment and management can help relieve your IT staff of tedious and time-consuming routine tasks.

Attacks on IT infrastructures are no longer the exception. Every day, an uncountable number of businesses fall victim to cyber criminals with the BSI Situation Report 2020 describing 117.4 million new, previously unknown versions of malicious software. That equates to more than 320,000 each day. In order to serve their purpose, they naturally have to spread and that means we see the same situation play out over and over again—an employee receives an e-mail and opens it without thinking. The result? Disaster. Carry on reading to find out how you can get your company onto a secure footing.

Advanced Persistent Threats, or APTs, are a multi-layer, sophisticated form of attack that a growing number of businesses are becoming acquainted with. Experts are clear. Anyone can be impacted. To make sure you don’t fall victim yourself, we’ve put together some detailed information on this often underestimated attack scenario and explain how it unfolds. We’ll also give you some tips on how to protect yourself and what to do if the worst comes to the worst.

No matter if in the cloud, as a hybrid solution or on premise, at the end of the day, IT is on physical computers housed in a building. In other words, a data centre. To make sure a data centre operates smoothly, it is essential to keep an eye on a whole raft of components within the IT infrastructure and in the room itself to pick up on any potential vulnerabilities early and, therefore, precent issues, damage and even outages.

The figures speak for themselves. Whether it’s the number of patents, the use of modern IT technology or the degree of digitalisation in companies—Germany, its SMEs in particular—is stuck in the middle field. People are saying that German SMEs are running out of gas, and their lack of progress is endangering other branches of industry, for example production. But let’s be honest – Is this really the truth?
