“Sales of media tablets such as Apple’s iPad, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and an army of other competitors from RIM, Motorola and Hewlett-Packard will give global information technology spending a boost, according to the latest forecast from Gartner. The research firm said it has added tablet spending to its hardware spending estimates. The result: Global IT spending will be $3.6 trillion in 2011, up 5.6 per cent from 2010.

Why the Cloud Is Actually the Safest Place for Your Data
Citrix Systems chief technology officer, Simon Crosby, writes about the importance of desktop virtualization.

“A locked down data centre is all well and good, but how are workers supposed to be productive if they can’t move data around? With virtualization, data is available from multiple points. Accordingly, there’s never a reason to save anything to removable media (like the kinds that seem so often to fall into the wrong hands). A good desktop virtualization solution lets you set policies as to what kinds of client-side devices can be used, from thumb drives to printers.”
