Here is a summary of the Enterprise Services blog topics for this past week:
There hasn’t been as much discussion around the impact of mobile devices on printing behavior and the implications so I was pleased the other day to find a very insightful report from Quocirca titled, “The mobile print enterprise. How IT consumerization is driving anytime, anywhere printing.”
- Data Center Consolidation is a “never ending story”… by Shawna Rudd
I was watching a series of video clips on “data center consolidation” the other day, and I ran across one that featured some senior Gartner Analysts who were sharing their thoughts on keys things to remember about data center consolidation. One of the analysts defined Data Center Consolidation as “collapsing a large number of smaller data centers that are geographically dispersed into a smaller number of more economic data centers”.
Last week while at HP’s global technical conference, I had a few minutes with Ray Beausoleil from HP Labs. He was excited about a topic that appears to have some significant potential in both the consumer and industrial area – Dielectric Grating Reflectors.

- For Communications industry expertise, that "one size fits all" t-shirt isn't gonna fit! by Denise Townley
