  • The ABCs of the Internet of Things

    You've heard the term and probably read stories about smart homes where the toaster talks to the smoke detector. But what makes it all connect? When will it become mainstream, and will it work?

  • Driverless cars yield to reality: It's a long road ahead

    Take a drive on Highway 101 between Silicon Valley and San Francisco these days and you might see one of Google's driverless cars in the lane next to you. The vehicles are one of the most visible signs of the increasing amount of research going on in the area related to automated driving technology.

  • Cisco Catalyst 6500 vs. Cisco Nexus 7000

    These days, Cisco network administrators are a nation divided. It is not enough for the network admin to say he works in a Cisco shop. The admin should also specify a preference of Cisco switch - either the widely used Cisco Catalyst 6500 family of switches or the cutting-edge Cisco Nexus 7000 line.

  • Why you should upgrade to Windows 8

    Microsoft?s new operating system may look like a radical departure from Windows 7, but it works, it makes sense ? and it?s the future.

  • Big Data a big opportunity to discover new revenue streams

    With alarming regularity supposed experts and commentators predict the demise of the chief information officer (CIO) role. Yet if they were to listen to the leading CIOs present at a recent round table dinner hosted with Intel, these commentators would realise just how far off the mark they really are. The evening's topic was Big Data, and the Business IT Hub could summarise the thoughts shared in just two words - big opportunity.

  • Ubuntu 12.10 'Quantal Quetzal' - Five new features in Beta 1

    It's been just about two months since the launch of the first alpha version of Ubuntu Linux 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, and that release was followed by two more alpha iterations over the course of the summer.

  • Data centre in a box? The era is approaching

    Start-up SimpliVity is the latest vendor to emerge from the development stage with an all-in-one array that performs all the functions of a complete IT stack with the addition of deduplication and data replication. More companies and products are preparing similar launches.

  • The Internet has created 'the largest trust gap' in history, says Bruce Schneier

    Trust is at the heart of security, argues Bruce Schneier in his latest book, "Liars and Outliers".

  • What's the fastest browser? Maybe you're measuring it wrong

    Among all those very scientific benchmarks we forget one factor: the user. Our human eye is incapable of distinguishing the 221 ms load time of a JavaScript applet in IE9 from the 220 ms load time in Firefox 17. Do we even notice if Chrome opens a website in 778 ms versus IE's 953 ms? Humans think in seconds, not milliseconds.

  • Cobol on the mainframe: Does it have a future?

    David Brown is worried. As managing director of the IT transformation group at Bank of New York Mellon, he is responsible for the health and welfare of 112,500 Cobol programs -- 343 million lines of code -- that run core banking and other operations. But many of the people who built that code base, some of which goes back to the early days of Cobol in the 1960s, will be retiring over the next several years.
