Known as information technology (IT) to the use of technology – specifically computers and electronics – for handling and processing of information – specifically the capture, processing, storage, protection and recovery of data and information.
The origins of IT are recent. Although the name of information technology goes back to the 70, its use in business goes back to mid-twentieth century, during the Second World War. However, it has been in the last 20 years which has reached levels of use and applications as varied and ubiquitous, which has become an area of great extent and impact on all aspects of daily life – including the management of any company , Which today is almost indispensable.
Since the emergence of Internet, has joined the IT mass communication aspect, which is usually referred to an even broader subject, known as Information and Communications Technology or ICT.
Information Technology Company
The department or team within an organization that exercises the functions of IT is responsible for study, design, develop, implement and manage information systems used to manage data and information throughout the organization. These systems, in turn, include applications or software, and equipment or hardware.
Carry out the tasks of the organization relying on information technology generally results in a faster and reliable processing of your data. The resulting information has greater mobility and accessibility, and has more integrity, that when processed manually. Similarly, computers relieve employees of many repetitious activities, allowing them better leverage their time on activities that add more value.
As prices come down computer equipment, their capacity increases, and become easier to use, IT is used in new and varied forms. In business, its applications are diverse. Today, most medium and large (and increasingly small and micro-enterprises) use IT to manage almost all aspects of business, especially the management of financial and transactional records of organizations, records employees, billing, collection, payment, shopping, and more.
As expected, Apple announced its new iPhone 4 which had connection problems with AT & T network at the time of the demonstration, which took Steve Jobs to continue with other aspects or new cell phone features.
technology called “retinal display,” which increases to four times the density pixels in the same space, says Jobs. Per inch is calculated 326 pixels. This device would have a thickness of 9.3mm. The iPhone 4 uses a micro-SIM card, like the iPad. One of the biggest best according to Jobs, is that the battery is much more durable and A4 processor, would achieve up to 7 hours talk, 6 hours surfing on 3G, 10 hours Wi-Fi browsing and up to 300 hours standby said Jobs. Similarly, Jobs said he would have a memory capacity up to 32GB.
Moreover they are adding new hardware, is the gyroscope, said Jobs. This would help improve the functionality of the accelerometer, in order to more effectively capture the movement and the turns you make to the phone. Similarly, in the metal around the phone Mars, there are several slots, which Jobs said would help improve the quality of the call, and would work as an antenna.
The new iPhone 4, brings a 5 megapixel camera with flash, 5x digital zoom, also has the ability to capture HD video in high definition, with “FaceTime,” which provides video calls and will geolocation. With this new feature, Apple iMovie has been designed for the iPhone, offering the ability to edit and better manage your videos that can be recorded with the Apple iPhone. As expected, the new iPhone 4 will serve as a front camera to iChat and you can see horizontal and vertical. (more…)
Between traditional PBX players are well positioned and start-ups to limited staff, the Post Office who wanted to install a VoIP solution in a new building, made a bold choice by awarding the contract to an SME. The beginning of a collaborative, value-added grew over time.
Two moves in quick succession in 2 years for a body of nearly 1,000 people and the need to settle in an old building where thenetwork needs to be redone. “Simplify, save, make the choice of VoIP, a technology that has market recognition,” offers Olivier Lenoir, head of IT infrastructure of the service at La Poste, which launches in 2007 containing a tender specifications providing 800 to 1,000 positions.
The traditional players are well positioned PBX and offer peak loads up to 30,000 jobs. But then, budgets are poorly understood … For the traditional PBX players have made an effort on the huge commercial IP phones they offer at competitive prices. But their business model does not allow them to engage on standard billing means services will be charged again, any new connection to the workstation as well. As for the French players in the VoIP, that are start-ups.
One of them, Proformatique, created three years ago but which in 2010 merged with Avencall, expert of Asterisk, a standard that has proven itself across the Atlantic and won for its strength and functional flexibility, moved XiVO its solution. “But will they align with the field teams sufficient to connect the phones on time? The Open Source VoIP Solution XiVO, will he good communications if hundreds of people are online at the same time? It was entitled to ask these questions, “recalls Olivier Lenoir, behind the tender. The Post did, however, a bold choice and “the tender was won narrowly by Proformatique, given the selection criteria set by equation, the overall cost of the investment, references and the structure of the provider” Olivier Lenoir said.

Seductive, virtualization workstation VDI does not benefit. Marion Gravot, product marketing manager at Systancia, the future is a combination mode VDI – SBC that gives priority to application virtualization and provides the workstation as needed
Virtualization workstation or otherwise called VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) is the technology solution that everyone istalking about now. The largest international analysts like Gartner have paved the way and presented all the advantages of this approach:
* Operating systems and applications are no longer installed directly on the user workstations, but servers;
* The IT department of a company can easily manage their infrastructure and completely alleviating, including maintenance operations;
* The user to start his computer, like being on a normal workstation, nothing changes, but in fact, he became an image, a virtual representation of the system (eg Windows Seven ), image-related data center that hosts the actual system.
For example, if I have a fleet of 1,000 conventional PCs with Windows Vista, how can I easily switch to the new version of Microsoft? Moving towards a VDI, my deployment of the 1,000 Microsoft operating systems Seven takes a few clicks on my server infrastructure. Users, the next connection, see on their desktops, the focus Vista replaced by Seven. The ultimate solution is to replace desktop PCs, thin clients, cheaper and dramatically reduce energy consumption. The thin client contains nothing, apart from the party performing the virtual image.
