We see “thought leadership” as a catch-phrase to describe the kind of thinking, leadership, and dedication that make a company
stand out in its industry.
Put another way, to be a thought leader means to always be thinking in front of today’s news.

An Educated Staff is the Proactive Approach
In spite of ongoing economic issues, many are confident that hiring trends will continue to increase and have expectations of a revived period of economic
growth. There are also many predictions and discussions surrounding Top Technology Trends and new emerging technologies. Changes in the IT industry happen very
quickly, so one must keep up-to-date with advances and developments as they emerge if you hope to remain at the forefront of the field. Studies indicate that
over the next five years, dramatic changes will occur in IT organizations as they adopt new strategies to raise their companies’ competitive advantage. New
infrastructure will be implemented and tools refined to achieve greater efficiencies in the organization. This will raise complex issues surrounding re-imaging
of IT’s role in the organization. What’s driving these changes?
Imagine IT Simplified
The benefits of cloud computing have placed it at the forefront of agendas at industry association conferences and trade shows. Numerous educational articles
have been published by industry consultants. Product vendors have announced cloud readiness in many of their products, and hotel chains have declared success in
moving applications off premise to private cloud facilities. The concept of cloud computing has arrived in the hospitality industry. So when will you get on
Guest HSIA Network
Today, a significant number of hospitality properties around the world know that High-Speed Internet Access (HSIA) is a
must-have amenity in order to remain competitive. Seen a few years ago as a specialty offering and a hoped-for
revenue source, HSIA is now at the level of a commodity offering – something nearly every guest expects to have available, just
like color television and air-conditioning.
But these same hotel properties – including even global pioneers in IT applications and progressive
management – are dangerously close to missing the big news in HSIA. They are
sitting on an opportunity to shape and control their operations utilizing this
new infrastructure to make money for themselves on all sides of the ledger;
reducing expenses, streamlining operations, and generating important new revenue
High Speed Internet Access
High-Speed Internet Access offers great potential for increased service amenities and revenues in the hospitality
industry, but at the same time requires great care in the selection of service
and business models, appropriate technology solutions, and ongoing customer and
systems support. In this paper, Terry McGowan and Dan Carpino discuss the
evolution and current state of HSIA as it applies to hospitality properties, and
offer key guidelines in how to reach appropriate decisions
for properties of any size.
The Information Technology Industry has experienced rapid growth in wireless
networks over the past few years. The
expansion has been fueled by the low cost
of deployment and the benefits of enhanced productivity. The biggest problem
with this explosive growth is that security has been given a low priority,
leaving most wireless networks extremely susceptible
to exploitation attacks. This white paper is one of three covering Security, Technologies and Deployment. They were prepared
by Datanamics Labs., to help you assess the technology and
determine if wireless is right for you.
Wireless LAN Technology
Wireless networking is today’s glamour technology. You can hardly pick up a technology publication without encountering
extolling its virtues or excoriating its faults. The purpose of this white paper
is to inform the reader about the current
state of wireless technologies, and to
raise some of the pertinent issues regarding its possible future directions.
During the last few years, an increasing number of
wireless products have hit the general market. Because of their low cost,
convenience, mobility, and interoperability there are now more instances where
wireless networking becomes an option in the
corporate wired environment. This
white paper is one of three produced by the Datanamics Labs™ development team to
assist in dealing with technology, deployment, and security.
