Backing up your data to the cloud is becoming a more popular option that is being explored and undertaken by the majority of businesses. Therefore, the data backup market has become more competitive with hundreds of companies all offering a backup service that will get your data offsite. Due to the competitiveness of the market, companies have cut corners with the aim to reduce their costs and therefor offer the end customers a lower price. A couple of examples of this is storing data on cheap hardware and re-branding home user backup solutions into a business solution. One of the most overlooked aspects of a solution is whether a replication system is in place.
When someone is looking for a cloud backup provider to back up their data, the primary objective is to find a solution that will work and is within their budget. In most cases, little or no consideration is taken for whether the offered solution has a replica system in place.
Having a replica system in place offers both the service provider and customer several advantages and peace of mind that if anything did happen to the primary system, a switch can be made to the replica[…]

When I was thinking about how the online world might change in the future, I suggested there may be some pressure for the resurrection of “walled gardens” – specialist areas of the internet where interactions happen behind password-protected access.
When I first started using the internet, back in 1995, this was common. I signed up with Compuserve (which I am amazed to see still exists!), and there were specific areas of interest curated by the the organisation; to access the internet proper, you had to click an icon to leave the walled garden. There were other, similar services, too – AOL, for instance.
Accessible browsers like Internet Explorer and Netscape – and, later, Firefox, Chrome et al – freed up the internet and enabled non-technically savvy users (like me) to get around. The walled gardens more or less died: users didn’t like being walled in, and had no reason to be so.
My reasoning for thinking walled gardens might make a return was a commercial one: suppliers of content – like Facebook, Twitter, Apple or Google – want to keep you on their site as long as possible, to sell your eyeballs to advertisers and others willing to pay them.[…]

Pet products wholesaler, Pedigree Wholesale Ltd, reports that more than a fifth of its orders have moved online since it implemented BCP’s Accord®Web Ordering system to offer customers more flexibility in ordering, increase loyalty and reduce the costs associated with handling orders.
Based in Nottingham and founded over 40 years ago, Pedigree is one of the UK’s key pet products wholesalers servicing the independent sector.

A user of BCP’s Accord wholesale distribution software for several years, Pedigree worked closely with BCP on the initial implementation of online ordering as they wanted the customer web ordering site to have the same look and feel as the main company website and to have the flexibility to reflect any future changes in the main site on the web ordering site.
Since its initial implementation the Web Ordering system has progressively evolved as Pedigree have collaborated with BCP to drive enhancements and tailor it to suit their particular requirements. It[…]

I lost my virginity back in 2004 (to recruitment software that is) when a £37m agency asked me to build them a recruitment system. My first question was: "Isn't there anything already on the market th
