This is our last blog post of 2011! Take a look at what we've accomplished in the past year, and read how to make the most of 2012!

This week’s important resources:

1. Cloud computing certainly has its skeptics, but it’s mostly a lack of understanding – “Not understanding the cloud is holding them back,” said Connie Arentson, president of Heartland Technology Solutions. “The fact is they’ve got their infrastructure in-house with all their data on it. There’s a security in knowing where it’s at and having it there.”

2. A year in the cloud: See how far we’ve come. – “With hindsight, it seems self-evident that mobile and social would become core to enterprise software strategies, and yet a year ago, it was still a novelty to suggest either.”

3. Enterprise technology looks at changes in 2012 – “As for what many business and enterprise employees want, that might not necessarily align with IT department regulations. Yes, we’re talking about the bring-your-own-device-to-work trend, which is only going to become more pertinent in the next year.”

4. Tech gadgets to boost productivity while on-the-go – “But just because you’re on-the-go doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected to your business and keep up with the myriad of tasks on your plate. Luckily for road-warrior types, a number of gadgets and high-tech services are designed for helping business owners boost productivity while on the move.”

2012 may prove to be the "awkward teenage phase" of cloud computing, but is that such a bad thing?

This week’s important resources:

1. Cloud in 2012: the awkward teenage phase? – “Cloud computing won’t play out exactly like client-server or the Internet era did but there are strong similarities and the early years were the most painful. To that aim, it’s time to put our soothsayer’s hat back on and read the tarot for cloud in 2012.”

2. What is the future of productivity? Check out Microsoft Office’s vision:

3. This blogger suggests the paperless dream is dead. Is it? – “Furthermore, a side effect of the supposed paperless revolution has been the immense ease with which one can click the “print” icon and spit out hundreds of pages in seconds, with only the smell of hot paper and burnt toner to remind one of the shattered dreams of paperless nirvana.”

4. Cloud computing is expected to grow 12-fold by 2015.

What can going green do for your business culture? Even small activities like recycling can bring your employees together for a common cause. Going paperless is a great way to help the environment.

This week’s important resources:

1. Baltimore Ravens go paperless, will recoup investment in just 2 years – “Security is the greatest priority with the tablets. Fusee said the encryption for downloading game plans is a 256-bit, Department of Defense-standard encryption. Players are required to turn in their iPads no later than the conclusion of a game, and just in case there is a straggler, there is a “time bomb” on the game plans that automatically deletes them a few hours after a contest.”

2. What phone does IT prefer – “‘If it were up to IT managers there would still be only one solution out there and it would be called BlackBerry,’ Croft tells Ars. Why is that? iOS and Android now support encryption, forced PIN entry, remote wipes and other security capabilities, but Croft says RIM security is simply more robust and easier to implement.”

3. Painting the office “green” – “Being green is a state of mind, and simply educating your employees about the importance of environmental responsibility will go a long way in creating a green culture in your office. Fostering a green office culture is not only good for the environment, but it can be good for business.”

4. What you need to know about enterprise capture – “Specifically, while a relatively high percentage of user organizations are scanning to archive, relatively few are extracting data from images to doing indexing or metadata, even fewer are extracting data to drive processes, and still fewer have a true enterprise capture strategy.”

Check out our latest blog post, too:

GE-Aviation implements worldwide FileBound solution – “Each break sheet has a unique bar code that eliminates the need to index records before applying associated customer data needed for indexing. Images and data are then formatted for upload to GE’s private FileBound website which can be accessed by authorized users around the globe 24/7.”
