The buzz was loud at tech shows all over the world this year; 8K TV is coming. This news, exciting as it is, induced groans from tech fans though. Why? Why in the world do we need 8K when it feels like 4K just became a thing? And is there even such a thing as 8K content to watch on these new generation TVs anyway?
As technology continues to evolve at a very rapid pace so do the opportunities that businesses – and people in general – have to make use of it to manage their homes and workplaces more efficiently, to help streamline everyday processes and tasks, improve security, reduce costs and much more.

Is your company growing? We certainly hope so! But when a company is growing its’ operational needs quickly become more complex. Not just your hardware and software needs, but the sometimes-overlooked day to day functions as well.
For example, just how do people get in and out of your building? You need an access control system that can keep up with the new employees and perhaps an increase in visits from clients, customers and the general public as well.
Your California home is probably one of your most valuable investments as well as the place that you and your family spend so much time and create so many great memories.

With the services offered by Data Installers, it can be all of this and more. Allow us to explain…
The digital element of a huge number of businesses operating in all kinds of niches continues to experience tremendous growth. And while that growth may be great for both a customer or client’s experience with a company, and for that company’s bottom line it can place huge stresses on the cabling systems that keep a business computing network up and running.
Many business owners start their business using a set of Excel files. They continue to use them as the business grows. A single Excel file can have multiple sheets of data, such as products sold, leads to call, quotes sent out to customers, and much more.
It is difficult to get this solution to work efficiently and cohesively. For instance, when you create a quote, it would be more efficient to have the capability to pull-up the list of products straight from a central, organized list of products.
Many companies rely on their wireless networks to keep their business running at maximum capacity and efficiency. And so when things seem to be starting to go wrong it can seem like disaster may be looming on the horizon, especially for businesses that rely on wi-fi as a customer perk, such as cafes, bars and service businesses like doctor’s offices. However, the good news is that those annoying lags, slowdowns and disconnections may not be the huge problem you imagine, you may just need to rethink your wireless router options.
Technology is transforming businesses in all niches, even in one as established as the restaurant, bar and cafe niche. Yes, the concept of going out for a nice meal is one that is centuries old but in order to remain competitive 21st century eateries increasingly need to incorporate technology into their ‘recipe for success’.
May 12, 2017 was a dark day for a number of big companies and systems. A ransomware attack that became known as WannaCry was unleashed thanks to an exploit, Eternal Blue, that was ‘stolen’ from the NSA last year and the havoc is wrecked for a few days will take a long time to recover from. Britain’s entire National Health Service was taken down, resulting in real life health crises for patients, the Spanish telecom giant Telefonica was knocked out for days and in fact companies in 150 different countries were affected, including in the US.
The term ‘Internet of Things’ does sound a little bit like a line from a sci-fi movie, but it’s becoming more and more of a reality every day, especially in the workplace. Forward thinking entrepreneurs and technophiles are taking advantage of an increasing number of new technologies that make use of the iOT concept to help boost productivity, increase security, improve employee satisfaction and more.
Not all of these technologies are within the financial reach of a smaller business right now perhaps – although some certainly are – but as they become more commonly used like everything else in the hardware world the price is bound to drop, so they are worth keeping mind.
