Michael Krigsman writes about the global IT failure market according to ObjectWatch’s CTO and enterprise architect, Roger Sessions.

“According to the World Technology and Services Alliance, countries spend, on average, 6.4 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on Information Communications Technology, with 43 per cent of this spent on hardware, software, and services. This means that, on average, 6.4 X .43 = 2.75 % of GDP is spent on hardware, software, and services.”

Everything We Know About Apple’s Touchscreen Tablet
Brian X. Chen offers details around a rumoured 10-inch tablet PC that may be coming out from Apple next year.

“The latest update comes from a tipster with a solid track record, which reinforces previous reports that Apple will deliver a tablet in early 2010. The tipster also shares details on the rumored product’s specifications. The tipster claims the tablet will measure 10.7 inches (diagonally) and will run the iPhone operating system. The tablet will sport a higher resolution than the iPhone or iPod Touch screen.”

Creating a Culture of Continual Service Improvement

Phil LaForge writes how managed services providers can better improve their service levels.

“Highly satisfied customers stay customers, and unhappy ones exercise their right of market choice and leave. That’s why tracking retention is so vital. Year over year retention rates should be in the 90 per cent and higher range.”
