t has been a year since we released our previous SME Guide, and in this time, it would seemthat a number o companies have come to grips with some o the issues raised then. Forexample, the cloud has become more palpable, and oered many companies a valuablesolution to some o their IT problems. But as some issues are resolved, new ones arise. Withthe prolieration o tablets, smartphones and swanky new ultrabooks, IT departments areaced with the headaches that develop when sta want to use their own devices in the oice. The consumerisation o IT is one o the issues addressed in this SME Guide (p12-13), showingthat companies can eectively ensure security while receiving all the beneits o this smartequipment. Near Field Communication (NFC) and the role it might play in uture payments isalso on the table, and we look at how the internet is making it possible to bypass your bank tound uture projects.I hope that this SME Guide helps your company ind the solutions needed to lourish in thesetech-illed times,Mike Joubert (michael@techsmart.co.za)
