In Pictures: 10 old-school IT principles that still rule

These graybeard IT tenets still reign -- when applied in their modernized guise

10. It’s about business change, or else what’s the point?

When computers were new and shiny, business executives counted on them to drive change everywhere by making business processes quicker and cheaper while cutting way down on manual errors.

That lasted until IT had to support so many interconnected systems that doing anything new was time-consuming, expensive, and risky. Its reliance on waterfall methodologies didn’t help either.

We’re finally breaking loose again. Between agile, better integration tools, and non-IT IT, information technology is starting to drive change again instead of following along after it.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
