Talent war to push CIOs toward consultancies, managed services in '22

20 January 2022 @ 11:00 am

This will be the year CIOs should be able to move past short-term projects that deal with pandemic-related workplace issues and focus on longer-term IT projects, according to a new study by Gartner Research.Despite the Omicron COVID-19 variant, an economic recovery — with high expectations for spending on digital transformation projects — is likely to continue to boost technology investments this year.This year, worldwide IT spending is projected to reach $4.45 trillion, an increase of 5.1% from 2021, according to Gartner’s Worldwide IT Spending Forecast, which was released Tuesday. That growth is expected to continue into 2023, when another 5% in IT spending will be added — bringing the worldwide total of nearly $4.7 trillion.

Noteworthy tech acquisitions 2022

19 January 2022 @ 7:10 pm

Amid the on-going coronavirus pandemic, 2021 followed in the footsteps of its predecessor, continuing to be an unpredictable, and at times incredibly difficult, year. But one thing that stayed constant was the steady flow of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) across the tech sector.According to research by Global Data, global tech M&A deals had already neared $3 trillion by Q3, largely supported by the tech, media, and telecom sectors. Although nothing rivalled Xilinx’s $35 billion acquisition of Advanced Micro Devices in 2020, last year did see Intuit buy Mailchimp for $12 billion and Square splash out a princely sum — $29 billion — for Afterpay.To read this article in full, please click here

Windows 10 Insider Previews: A guide to the builds

19 January 2022 @ 5:22 pm

Microsoft never sleeps. In addition to its steady releases of major and minor updates to the current version of Windows 10, the company frequently rolls out public preview builds to members of its Windows Insider Program, allowing them to test out — and even help shape — upcoming features.Microsoft numbers Windows 10 releases using a YYH1/YYH2 format, with the YY standing for the last two numbers of the year and H1 or H2 referring to the first or second half of the year. So the most recent version of Windows 10 is officially referred to as Windows 10 version 21H1, or the May 2021 Update. The next feature update, due in the fall of 2021, will be version 21H2.

How to keep your apps up to date in Windows 10 and 11

19 January 2022 @ 11:00 am

Look around a typical Windows desktop. Whether it’s running Windows 10 or 11, chances are that it’s running at least a couple of dozen Windows applications (.exe files), and at least four dozen Microsoft Store apps. On my local fleet of 10 PCs, the range for applications is from a low of 24 to a high of 120; for Store apps, it ranges from 49 to 81. Such numbers are quite typical, if my online research is at all accurate.In general, it’s considered good security practice to keep apps and applications up-to-date. Why? Because many updates involve security patches and fixes that block potential attacks and prevent unauthorized and unwanted access to applications and their data (and sometimes, the host OS and the PCs they run on). In this story, I will offer some tools to help you streamline this process, along with some instructions on how to put them to work to help you keep your apps and applications current and safe.

This proposed design of Ryzen 5800GX combines Zen3 chiplet with Navi24 GPU

AMD Radeon RX 6500XT gets negative reviews AMD's latest low-end GPU launch has been painted by limited performance, lack of encoding capabilities, and issues with limited PCIe lanes.  The GPU maker's decision to launch a low-end mobile GPU as the desktop had a disastrous effect. Reviewers have commonly expressed their negative conclusions on AMD's 199 USD desktop card. Not only was the card hardly available at MSRP outside of the US, but it also somehow went out of stock. By far the most commented issues with RX 6500XT were non-existent ray tracing performance or subpar performance on the PCIe Gen3...Keep on reading: AMD employee confirms Navi 24’s primary use is in laptops with Rembrandt APUs
