SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Each day, supporting IT organizations gets more complex. It’s tough enough for IT leaders to keep their arms around this fast-moving industry, and it’s even more difficult for those responsible for cost-effectively procuring these technologies in enterprise settings to vet them and ensure that they are aligned to both business and IT standards. To that end, SHI International Corp., a leading global provider of IT services and products, today unveiled the new SHI blog. The blog will help foster an effective dialogue between executives, IT leaders, and the procurement experts charged with supporting their organization in increasingly complex enterprise environments.
“Our new blog will analyze the trends driving technology development and adoption; provide an up close and personal look at the latest product releases from major vendors, such as Microsoft and HP; and educate organizations about what they need to know when sourcing, deploying, or upgrading their technologies,” says Ed McNamara, Director of Communications and Marketing at SHI. “Our goal is to empower those responsible for purchasing and managing their organizations’ technologies by openly sharing the questions and conversations we have with customers every day. In addition to industry news and changes to volume licensing programs, we want to help clients quickly evaluate the latest and most advanced infrastructure, cloud, storage, networking, and other technology solutions.”
Specifically, the SHI blog will focus on hardware, software, services, solutions, training, cloud, and gadgets for organizations of any size in both the public and private sectors. Penned by SHI’s seasoned team of software volume licensing experts, hardware procurement specialists, and certified IT services professionals, the blog will include posts such as:
- 4 ways to prepare for the Windows 8 update. Caitlin Edwards advises readers on how to integrate their virtualization infrastructure and BYOD policies into an effective licensing solution while developing a technology roadmap that will help prepare their organization for an upgrade to Microsoft Windows 8.
- How to maintain business continuity with a virtualized infrastructure. Josh Dunsky addresses one of the leading barriers to the adoption of virtualized infrastructure.
- SAN, NAS, or both: Which is best for your users? Timothy Henning outlines the differences between two popular storage solutions—network attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN)—and helps readers determine whether either of these, or a unified storage solution, best meets their needs.
- SHI's customers shape the product. Mike Melillo demonstrates SHI’s approach to helping organizations take advantage of the cloud.
Fifteen of SHI’s experts will be contributing to the blog. A detailed list of all the bloggers and their areas of expertise is available on the blog’s masthead. Business professionals, associates, and the press are invited to visit or subscribe to the SHI blog using any RSS reader.
