Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Reg Tech Panel There's been a lot of talk recently about the imminent death of traditional email and office applications to be replaced by shiny new web apps all served from the Cloud. Now, we know the world changes slowly and this won't happen overnight, or be suitable for all.

But there are a lot of old Exchange or Notes installations out there that are struggling along, and plenty of companies are looking to do PC or office suite refreshes too. There are a whole bunch of other changes also happening, with the increasing use of smartphones and the emergence of tablets leading to new ways to access email and office documents.

Meanwhile the Internet has fundamentally changed how business is done. Many small and medium-sized businesses are now competing on national or global stages and need access to features and functionality that they may not themselves be able to implement or manage.

This is leading to a difference in how we think about email and productivity apps. It may be difficult to try and provide real-time email 24/7 to a mobile workforce when the system was envisaged to serve desktop PCs on a LAN.

The way we work and communicate has changed considerably over the past few years, and is continuing to change. Now is an ideal time to investigate how email and other office productivity applications and tools are delivered and used. So please let us know your views, and helps us to separate hype from reality.

You can get started right here.
