Apple’s BYOD improvements will save time for IT

Apple announced numerous enterprise-focused enhancements in its operating systems at WWDC, all of which business users will get to use this fall. But some we’ve not looked at too closely yet include tools to balance privacy with managed IDs.Managed Apple ID improves dramatically Appe’s most important improvement is its all-new declarative device management system. The big idea behind this is to move device management from being reactive to becoming declarative, which gets the device itself to ensure it remains secure.To read this article in full, please click here

This SQL master class bundle is temporarily discounted to just $20

Everyone knows about the data sciences. Few, however, truly appreciate all that the job entails. Put in the most simple of terms, data scientists turn seemingly useless bits of information into knowledge and wisdom. This is why they are paid so well and are constantly in demand. Want to learn more about it? Then the Complete 2021 SQL Master Class Bundle is a wise next step.The Complete 2021 SQL Master Class Bundle features seven courses that introduce students to the dynamic world of data sciences. They’ll receive an introduction to database development, discover the role of an SQL server, and learn how to write data queries using structured query language. And while we agree that this all sounds very technical, the courses are actually presented in a beginner-friendly way which means virtually anyone can make sense of it.To read this article in full, please click here

Tech innovators pivot to support the post-COVID workplace

Plenty of firms have been busy over the past year building new products or enhancing existing ones to support a distributed workforce, virtual collaboration, and socially distanced office space. Over the next two newsletters, I’ll be looking at a few of their inventions that particularly impressed me. This week we look at how technology will change the way we meet.The Brady Bunch modelOne thing Covid has taught us is that the technology we used to use to accommodate remote participants into meetings, well, sucked. The audio quality of most legacy conference bridges was awful, forcing dialed-in workers to struggle to hear or speak. They couldn’t see what was going on in the room and, lacking a visual presence, were easily forgotten.To read this article in full, please click here

3 near-term tech advances that could change the future

(Disclosure: most of the companies mentioned are clients of the author.)The pandemic has had a fascinating impact on the speed of change in IT.  We connect remotely now more than ever before. We have a real chance for videoconferencing to finally do what it always promised — eliminate most business travel, including the morning commute. Tech companies in Silicon Valley have turned this into a massive hiring advantage: by hiring people who work remotely, they pay less than they otherwise would while offering salaries far above what they’d get locally. It’s an ironic win/win for both sides.  The business changes foisted upon companies by Covid-19 have also led to advances in other areas that could soon disrupt much of what we do. Those areas are conversational computing, ambient computing, and Cloud PCs.To read this article in full, please click here

The semiconductor shortage has wreaked havoc on manufacturers, and Apple will soon feel pinch. In the company's Q3 earnings call, chief executive Tim Cook said that supply constraints around "legacy nodes" will affect iPhone sales. These "legacy nodes" include chips for the display, ports and audio, not the A- and M-series processors that Apple designs for its devices. Macworld executive editor Michael Simon and Computerworld executive editor Ken Mingis discuss how the chip shortage will affect Apple, why Apple is considering using its own chips in monitors and other revelations from the earnings call.

How to give your phone an Android-12-inspired privacy upgrade

Android 12 sure is an onion of an update, wouldn't ya say?Now, don't get me wrong: I'm not suggesting it's fragrant, likely to make you cry, or positively delicious when cooked in a stir-fry. (That'd be one heck of a piece of software!) I just mean that it has lots of layers to it, including some that are beneath the surface and impossible to see when you're only glancing from afar.Android 12 is full of changes both big and small, in fact — and while many of its most noticeable external elements will be limited to Google's own Pixel phones, some of the improvements tucked away in those sticky lower layers are arguably the most important changes of all.To read this article in full, please click here

Google reads the room, tells workers to get their COVID-19 shots

Sundar Pichai, Google and Alphabet CEO, has had enough. Yesterday, he told his workforce and the world that "anyone coming to work on our campuses will need to be vaccinated." Period.Sure, most Google employees are bright enough to have already gotten a COVID-19 shot. Google doesn't hire dummies. As Pichai wrote: "It’s encouraging to see very high vaccination rates for our Google community in areas where vaccines are widely available. This is a big reason why we felt comfortable opening some of our offices to employees who wanted to return early. And, I have to say, it’s been great to see Googlers brainstorming around whiteboards and enjoying meals in cafes again in the many offices that have already re-opened globally."To read this article in full, please click here

Apple’s billion-dollar component nose bleed

Apple shared the dark side of digital transformation during then pandemic when it confirmed this week that component shortages will affect its business. The distress signal came during the company's Q3 results call.A multi-billion dollar nose bleed Apple CFO Luca Maestri said supply constraints would affect company revenue to the tune of $3 billion to $4 billion, though he still predicts double-digit growth for the company. But increased demand for Apple products in combination with global semiconductor shortages means supply will be constrained. While to some extent this is a good problem to have, it’s still a problem Apple must navigate.To read this article in full, please click here

The most important Chrome OS feature of 2021 isn't coming from Google

Well, I'll be. For all the new features and shape-shifting updates Google's constantly cookin' up for its Chrome OS platform, the most eye-opening Chromebook change of the year isn't even coming from within Google's walls.In fact, it's coming from one of Google's biggest, fiercest competitors — a company that'd very much like to see Chromebooks fizzle out and fade away.Don't you just love inadvertent irony?The change of which we speak stems from a recent announcement by Microsoft — yes, Microsoft! — and it technically has nothing to do with Chrome OS at all, even. In fact, amidst all the chatter about what the change means for Microsoft and its world of Windows, I haven't seen anyone so much as mention the potential significance here in the land o' Chrome OS computers.To read this article in full, please click here

Pandemic redux: No, your workers aren’t coming back to the office

Listen, I know you want to turn the clock back. I want to turn the clock back, too. We all want to turn the clock back and change the world so that Covid-19 never came along. We can’t do it — nor can we pretend anymore that we’re over the coronavirus pandemic. We’re not. And that means work isn’t going back to “normal”— whatever normal means now — either.We could see this coming. Too many Americans have not yet been vaccinated (and too many people outside the United States can’t even get the vaccine). What really drove this home for me was when my fellow journalist Violet Blue, who’s been covering the coronavirus like paint, shared that the virus in San Francisco, as of mid-July 2021, has an R rating of 1.66. That’s not Missouri, not Alabama, not the other hotbeds of virus disbelief — it’s the San Francisco Bay area.To read this article in full, please click here

It's time, IT — set the rules of the road for mobile

I recently noticed this piece on Forbes about a suggested change for all iOS Wi-Fi settings and it prompted a potentially controversial question.Why don't all IT/security admins issue a list of setting/configuration changes related to iOS and Android devices for all enterprise users? (If your people are still using BlackBerry — and I just received an email from a U.S. Department of Homeland Security worker who is, which is quite frightening — we need to talk ASAP.)[ Related: What is UEM? Unified endpoint management explained ] Some companies, of course, have these configuration settings written down and released. But why do many CIOs/CISOs not bother? And while I am diving deeper into troublesome waters, let me plunge ahead: Why not make such lists mandatory — a requirement for any company allowing personal devices to access sensitive data and sensitive systems? Almost all mandate the use of a downloadable company-approved VPN, so why not also dictate all manner of other settings that pose cybersecurity risks?To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft has confirmed that the upcoming Windows 11 will be serviced on a monthly basis using the same practices the company has honed with Windows 10.In both a post to the Windows IT Pro blog and refreshed online documentation, Microsoft last week said that it would continue to deliver what it had dubbed "quality updates" at least twice each month.Security updates, commonly known as "Patch Tuesday" updates, will be issued on the second Tuesday of each month for both Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Acronis teams with Jamf to secure the Apple-centric enterprise

As the Mac security journey becomes ever more challenging, there's fresh activity in the Mac security and enterprise infrastructure space: Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud now integrates with leading enterprise management platform Jamf.Acronis and Jamf: Better together That’s a significant step forward in terms of better native Mac support from Acronis, which has been working to widen its support for Apple’s platform since at least 2014 when it introduced Mac support for Acronis Access.
