  • Take control

    To quote Joni Mitchell's lyrics to Big Yellow Taxi, sometimes you really don't know what you've got till it's gone. This sentiment could well apply to many organisations that followed the move to client-server architecture in the 1990s.
    Although client-server computing provided greater flexibility to end users, the terminal era that preceded it had one significant advantage - centralised control. By distributing computing resources out to the end user, IT managers also distributed their problems.

  • A fattening thin client market

    The thin client market for the Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) region continues to grow significantly, pointing to a solid future for this form of 'lean and mean' computing for large enterprises.
    The APEJ thin client market is expected to grow strongly over the next five years, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.4 per cent. This growth will be driven primarily by India and the PRC, with good support from Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.
