Cloud data storage as a value-added service for small accounting firms

  Data management and backup is one of the biggest IT challenges facing small accounting and bookkeeping firms today. Lacking the big budgets of larger companies, these businesses have less to spend on data storage, backup and protection and often resort to storing files on their laptops or, at best, an external hard drive or two. However, accounting and bookkeeping firms – no matter how...

Why outsourcing is a better option in an uncertain economic environment

  South Africa’s downgrade to junk status by a number of global ratings agencies has put an already strained economy under further stress.

Conversely, however, technology is the lifeblood of any organisation...

Common backup blunders – how even the smallest error can cost you your data

We all know backup is important, which is why most organisations ensure they have sufficient backup in place. After all, data is valuable and needs to be protected. But having the right backup is only part of the solution; the rest is up to the policies in place and the people who use it. Instances of data loss due to simple human error are more...

Data’s increasing value and the advent of regulatory measures around data protection have pushed the protection of company and personal information, in the face of rising cybercrime, to the fore for South African businesses.

Extract more value from your backup than just ‘backup’
