New! Economic Stimulus Guide

As the federal government quickly works to distribute funds via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, much still remains unclear about how agencies and departments will appropriate funding, while simultaneously achieving transparency and regulatory compliance.

Economic stimulus package appropriations total $787.2 billion, with key funding initiatives to support technology, science and research, infrastructure improvements, education, energy, healthcare and training. Spending provisions within ARRA require agencies to have projects under way within 120 days of enactment, dramatically shortening the typical two year business development timeline.

June  Special Report - Virtual Desktop

Ask an IT manager whether they would like to manage 1,000 individual desktop images, each housed on an individual desktop they have to physically touch and maintain?

May Special Report - Cloud Computing

To evangelists it is “going where no man has gone before”; to skeptics it just “puts us behind the 8-ball to secure data”; and to many IT vets, it is “déjà vous all over again” taking us back to the days of mainframes and dumb terminals.

April Special Report - VoIP

“There are some things you need to think about and you should try to deal with,” Whitaker cautioned. “When you are converging voice and data on the same data infrastructure, if there are issues with that data infrastructure, your voice can be down.” That is a big no-no when it comes to making the business case for VoIP to senior executives....

That's for good reason: the Toughbook® by Panasonic has been a proven notebook serving the “rugged IT” needs of military and civilian users for as long as notebooks have been around.
