HP slices up services for small biz

Chris Mellor writes about HP’s new support services for SMB customers.

“There are four new support services, two analysis services and two new procurement options. These moves by HP to make its services more attractive to SMB customers are somewhat similar to those made by Dell to package its services in more easily affordable and predictable chunks.”

Security Spending Segmentation

Jon Oltsik writes about IT spending for the year, according to an ESG survey.

“According to ESG’s 2010 IT Spending Intentions data, 55 per cent of midsized (i.e., less than 1,000 employees) and enterprise (i.e., more than 1,000 employees) will increase spending on information security products and services in 2010. Great news for the industry but further analysis provides a more succinct picture. While 61 per cent of enterprises will increase spending, less than half (48 per cent) of midsized companies will do so. Marketing VPs should take note and filter budget dollars toward enterprise sales and marketing programs.”

iPhone ‘4G’: What’s in a name?
The loop

Jim Dalrymple writes about the problem of a “4G” name for Apple’s upcoming next generation iPhone release.

“Those who follow Apple know the company’s nomenclature. An iPod 2G is a second generation iPod – pretty simple. But as Chris Rawson at TUAW points out, the iPhone presents a new problem for Apple. With its fourth generation iPhone due out this summer, what will Apple call the device? After all, 4G is a term that refers to the next generation wireless technology. It could be confusing for new users.”
