WordPress is a great platform. WordPress site’s speed is important to your success. When a visitor lands on your site for the first time, you only have a few seconds to capture their attention to convince them to hang around.

    1.Update Everything- Before clicking update button, create a backup. Updating your WordPress installation, theme, and plug-in will increase speed as every update brings performance, stability, and functionality improvements.

2.  Use a theme that is not bloated- Sometimes, WordPress website loads slowly. Maybe because of graphics or bulky code and inefficient functions.

3.   Limit plug in usage- Keep only those plug in which you require and discard those you do not need.

Everyone Needs a Private Cloud

Concerns about security and control make the "private cloud” a more pleasant option for many.

One can implement their own private cloud by using a “cloud in a box” solution for office applications that can save the company money in the form of fewer license fees for office software. 

It is popular today to have a cloud of your own, no matter how small you are. When you have been in IT for over 30 years, you see a lot of changes in opinions—and invariably, thought cycles reverse and “old thoughts” resurface in new ways. The fact is, we all appreciate that cloud is here to stay and that it will continue to make inroads into data centers and IT infrastructure. But what we don’t know is where the predictable “pushbacks” can take place down the road. 

It is not too far-fetched for an enterprise to hedge against the turns that technology takes—and to embark on their own cloud journeys with the wish to understand fully what cloud is all about and how it works, regardless of how small they are. For most companies, this means engagement with a private cloud.

Upgrading to Windows 8.1

Microsoft Windows 8.1 is to be released in October 2013. Yes, Windows has announced the roll out of upgrade to Windows 8 users. Microsoft has once again changed the blend of products it is presenting to customers and consumers and also the conditions of use for those products.

Upgrade paths

In a merciful simplification of the available choices, Microsoft has discontinued selling separate upgrade and full price editions. Each Windows 8.1 has a full license that one can use to upgrade an installed Windows 7 instance if you want or can perform a clean install. A previously taken licensed version of Windows is not compulsory.

Only 2 Choices

Whether it is online or brick and mortar, one has two choices:
·                     Windows 8.1 (core) - $120
·                     Windows 8.1 Pro - $200

Already have Windows 8

If you already have a Windows 8 computer, you will be able to upgrade to 8.1 for free.

Bottom line

Having tried Windows 8.1 Preview, I can fully support the upgrade from Windows 8. While the differences between each version are often restrained. If you are already using Windows 8, the free upgrade to 8.1 is a no-brainer - one should get it.
If you are using Windows 7 on a computer without a touchscreen, there is really no compelling reason to upgrade now. However, when buying or building a new PC, there is also no convincing reason not to install Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 7.

Cloud Computing: Changing Enterprise Tech

In the years to come, what will happen to the several dollars businesses spend on technology. 

Lot of companies are trying to stitch together lots of different software from different technology providing companies. The biggest key factor of this change is cloud computing, where the software is based at one place and retrieved over the Internet from anywhere. With cloud computing, upfront costs are much less often and latest version of software appear as easily as an update on a smartphone, so the product is never out of date.

Shifting a company to cloud-computing services is also faster than old corporate software methods of installations, which may take more than usual time and require the services of expensive consultants.This statement is enough to explain the changing enterprise technology ways. Corporate tech savvy people are heading away from owning the technology outright and are instead asking others to do it for them in exchange of a monthly or annual fee.
