Ransomware Tops 2016 IT News

And a look at the Crystal Ball for 2017

In our January, 2017 SIMformation, we look at  how ransomware dominated the news in 2016, and steps that companies are taking to try to insulate themselves from having their files locked and forced to pay up to have them decrypted.  We then look ahead for the hot topics for the coming year in IT, and understandably, Security leads the list.  Analytics, "X" as a Service, Mobile Apps and Virtualization all will be things to watch in 2017. We also look at the growth of Windows 10 last year and how it is positioned as the operating system that Microsoft is pushing hard for us to adopt. Our Support Team weighs in on some tips for when we need to connect to you remotely, and we discuss Bluetooth 5 that will impact adoptions of devices for the Internet of Things as well as how Amazon dominated the holiday E-shopping marketplace.
