Skype for Business

By | Article | No Comments

PCMAN – Skype has expanded its wings from personal to business, and it hasn’t stopped updating Skype for Business since it was first introduced in a global conversation back in 2014. Microsoft announced that Skype for Business was made to replace Lync, an instant messaging and web conferencing software developed by the company in 2010.

Skype for Business has a new client experience, new server release, and updates synced to Office 365. It is designed to transform communication by giving organizations accessibility to reach Skype users outside the walls of their businesses. Skype for Business is supposedly a combination of the best features from Skype and Lync, where it adapts Skype icons for calling, adding video and ending a call, and improves Lync capabilities of content sharing and telephony. As an example, transferring a call has been reduced from three clicks to only one click away.

Features

The basic Skype for Business features include instant messaging, voice over IP (VoIP) and video conferencing. The users can import Microsoft Outlook contacts stored in Microsoft Exchange Server and retrieve contact lists from a local directory service.

Skype for Business accommodates online meetings, messaging, calls and video with up to 250 people. It can also allow the user to find anyone within the company and schedule meetings through Outlook. It has an enhanced enterprise-grade security and management of employee accounts.

Extensions

Lync used a number of extensions for instant-messaging protocol for some features. It provided federated presence and IM to non-Microsoft instant-messaging clients such as AOL and Yahoo to have complete functionality—a feature adapted to Skype for Business.

On top of that, Skype for Business keep information safe by protecting it with strong authentication and encryption. The users are able to control employee accounts, so they can add or remove subscriptions and assign people’s collaboration needs. If the company is already on the Microsoft platform, all of the personnel database will be automatically recognized across Skype for Business.

Cost
Skype for Business is not limited only to be used on particular devices. As long as the users have a phone and an Internet connection, they can join meetings with video teleconferencing systems. Users will also reduce cost by downloading one-solution software that includes voice, video and online meeting.

Microsoft’s Smart Battery

By | Article | No Comments

PCMAN – Have you ever had a problem with your device battery? Do you ask yourself, “Didn’t I just charged this laptop?” too many times? How familiar are you with the routine of plugging-charging-unplugging your laptop in a day? Do you constantly wish someone would work on extending devices battery lifespan?

Well good news for you, Microsoft has an ongoing research project to design a smart battery that saves up power by learning your habit of using your laptop. Researchers Ranveer Chandra, Bodhi Priyantha and Anirudh Badam are trying to make a system that understands its user’s behavior to help improve the device battery lifespan.

This research is one of the attempts of overcoming the problem that we currently have where we use our laptop for more sophisticated things that require more energy than before. People also have different needs and urgency regarding their charging habit—one might have the time to charge their device, but others might be jumping from one meeting to another, not having the privilege to find a decent power outlet to charge their devices.

Microsoft claimed that the underlying problem is that the battery is controlled by the hardware, not by the operating system. Although lithium-ion battery is already considered advance, the researchers do not think it could meet everyone’s needs. Their approach is to combine different kinds of batteries, which all are optimized to do different tasks, into the same computer. Then, it will work with the operating system to determine the most efficient battery method that should be applied to the device, considering the tasks that are currently running. Because obviously, making a video conference call requires different energy power compare to reading a Word document.

Another advance improvement that Microsoft is trying to develop is a technique used by the system to learn user’s individual habit, so it can calculate ways to extend its battery life based on the repeated activities—thus the name ‘Software Defined Batteries’.

“Even the optimization is personalized to the users’ needs,” said Anirudh Badam on the company’s blog entry.

As the research progress, the researchers stated that this method could be applied to devices further beyond laptops and tablets—eventually be applied to any device that uses a battery. We will just have to wait and see.

Let’s Get to Know ‘Cloud Computing’

By | Article | No Comments

PCMAN – What is cloud computing? Where is the cloud? How do you store things somewhere you can’t physically see?

Well first of all, the Internet has made our life easier or worst—depends on our point of view. Lets start positively by looking at how it has improved the way we work, especially for those who work within the IT industry.

Imagine you are working in a team, where each of your team members has their own computer to store their working files. When it comes to gathering all the data needed for the shared project, it would be quite hard to acquire them from different sources, wouldn’t it? Or in another case, you have a local server for your team, but are terrified of the system going down at the most inconvenient, unscheduled time.

If you have been dealing with this problem, then cloud computing should be the solution for you to consider doing. Cloud Computing is a method of using a hosted server on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than using a local server.

It might be hard for some of us to understand where the Cloud is. The name itself actually helps us to visualize its location—it’s above, up in the air. In a less sophisticated way, your files are stored in an invisible cupboard on the Internet. Here are three basic points to help you understand Cloud Computing better:

  1. Cloud is just a metaphor of the Internet. Your data is saved on the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.
  2. It allows easy access for more than one user to retrieve the data/information saved in the Cloud.
  3. Cloud Computing optimizes the effectiveness of the shared resources.

Cloud Computing can be beneficial for companies that want to improve its accessibility, flexibility and reduce capital cost on its technology infrastructure development. It will also help monitor projects more effectively, globalize the workforce and minimize licensing new software.

In this modern world where “working from home” is getting more popular, Cloud Computing support that concept by giving more freedom for independent workers to access information regardless of their location or what device they use. This method is believed to increase performance and productivity of a company when it’s applied to the right extend.

So what are you waiting for? You can Google more about Cloud Computing, or simply jump to PCMan website for more information and services on this particular subject.

3 Cloud Computing Service Models

By | Article | No Comments

PCMAN – If you already understand the basic concept of Cloud Computing and wanting to know further about the particular subject, this might be the right article for your source of information.

Cloud Computing providers offer their services according to different models that forms a layer within a stack. Based on the amount of freedom the users have to control the system, the service models are divided into three categories: Software as a Service, Platform as a Service and Infrastructure as a Service.

Cloud Computing

Software as a Service (SaaS)

This is the least complicated model. SaaS vendors usually manage the infrastructure and platforms that run the application, and they operate the application software in the cloud. Meanwhile the Cloud users will gain access to the application software and databases, and do not need to manage the infrastructure. This system allows the company to reduce IT operational cost and simplify maintenance and support. It is most suitable for the end users who do not possess advanced IT skills. Few applications that use this model are CRM, Email, virtual desktop, communication and games.

Platform as a Service (PaaS )

As it is said on its name, PaaS vendors provide the platform for their Cloud users. Typically, the provided platforms are ranging from operating system, execution runtime, database, web server and development tools. Similar to SaaS, Cloud users with this model do not need to install or manage any hardware. The platform allows the user to build applications and services over the Internet, and Cloud users can simply access the platform via their web browser. This method requires a little bit more skill to operate compare to SaaS.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Iaas vendors provide the infrastructure of the Cloud. This model gives more freedom for the users to develop and control the system. Companies who are rapidly growing to be an enterprise usually utilize this model because they are able to scale their Cloud system accordance to their growth. This method is the most complicated out of the three and requires more advance IT skills to operate optimally. Few applications that use this model are virtual machines, servers, storage, load balancers and network.

So which model is the most suitable for your company? Simply jump to PCMan website to find out more about Cloud Computing Solutions services that can help you expand your business.
