New Software Options for SMBs, Outsourcing, and More ...

IT managers at small to midsized business (SMBs) face vastly different responsiblities, challenges, and organizational realities from their big-corporation counterparts. Realizing this, software vendors have been coming out with solutions specially tailored to the SMB market. Today's blog post gives you a look at some of the software choices available to SMB IT managers these days, including the seldom considered option of outsourcing.

If you're a software vendor dazzled by visions of penetrating the huge Chinese market—but are wary of the well-publicized risks and challenges—you might want to know how heavyweight SAP managed to pull it off. But don't be put off by SAP's size, even small to midsized vendors can adopt the same strategy for success, as you'll discover in today's feature blog post.

IT outsourcing is smart business, but be careful, in many ways it can be like a marriage. In today's feature white paper, you'll learn about the most important thing you can do to ensure your IT outsourcing relationship lives happily ever after, instead of ending up in conflict and divorce.
