Hoboken IT Firm Honored Yet Again; Plus, Reasons To Get Off The Couch This Weekend

Hoboken IT firm eMazzanti Technologies was just named a finalist in NY Enterprise Report magazine’s Small Business Awards competition in the customer service category, an honor that distinguishes it from among several hundred area companies that the publication considered. This is hardly the first time this Hoboken IT firm has been recognized; the magazine also named them a finalist last year. Here in Hoboken former Mayor David Roberts declared August 30, 2005 “eMazzanti Technologies Day.” Current Newark Mayor Cory Booker did something similar within his city, and last year former Governor Jon Corzine gave the company special praise, saying, “It…

Microsoft’s Data as a Service offering, code-named Dallas, on tap

Microsoft’s latest cloud computing onslaught is a nascent “Data as a Service” offering launched this week at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles. From his keynote perch, Microsoft chief software architect Ray Ozzie urged attendees to keep information in mind when they develop cloud computing apps. Microsoft’s proposed data service, code-named Dallas, aggregates reams of public data and will make it available by subscription so that it can be parsed, reconfigured and displayed as needed and incorporated in other applications. Microsoft watchers could be forgiven if they view this through Microsoft’s Google eyes. Google, a pioneer in cloud computing, made…

Windows 7 Makes Old XP PCs Feel New Again – Says Microsoft – Softpedia

Upgrading to the resource hog that was Windows Vista meant that home and business users alike also required a hardware upgrade. The fact that Vista required quite expensive new hardware in order to run at a level of performance equivalent to Windows XP’s turned customers away from the new platform, and kept the share of the product on the operating system market under 20%, according to Net Applications. However, the same is not valid for Windows 7. Much to the contrary, Windows 7 is perfectly capable of running on older machines, with less the hardware resources required by Vista. Windows…

Мировая премьера Windows 7

22 октября состоялось одно из самых ожидаемых событий этой осени – корпорация Microsoft официально представила Windows 7 и объявила о начале продаж коробочных версий “семёрки” и компьютеров с предустановленной версией новой операционной системы. Торжества по этому случаю прошли в крупнейших мировых столицах, а мероприятием в Нью-Йорке руководил лично генеральный директор софтверного гиганта Стив Балмер. Событие, вне всяких сомнений, знаковое, ведь на кону – престиж редмондской компании, сильно пошатнувшийся после выхода на рынок Windows Vista. В Microsoft извлекли урок из фиаско “Висты” и постарались сделать всё, чтобы новинка смогла компенсировать неудачи, связанные с предыдущей версией продукта. Специалистам корпорации впервые удалось выпустить…

How Hard Will Windows Server 2008 Rock The Channel?

It has been nearly five full years since Windows Server 2003 was released to manufacturing, and the channel natives are getting restless. But Windows 2008 RTM is almost here, and there’s a palpable air of excitement and enthusiasm among VARs over the myriad improvements Microsoft has baked into the OS. But while solution providers are pumped up about virtualization in Windows 2008, they’re just as jacked about features like Network Access Protection, Internet Information Services 7.0, Server Core, and Bitlocker, and Terminal Services. Fueling VARs’ giddiness is their belief that the new features will help them drive services revenue among…

All together now – Jennifer and Carl team with WatchGuard on case study
