Importance of Equipment for the IT Department

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 29 Mar, 2016
As an IT professional, it would be your responsibility to maintain all computer related equipment inside your office. It might sound like a pretty easy job but believe me or not, being part of an IT department plays a very critical role in an organization.

Working in an IT department would need good analytical and problem solving skills. It would also require someone who could work in a fast pace environment especially for those companies that rely on computers for their business.

As we all know, skills would be very important but in emergency situations for the IT department, skills would not be enough without the proper equipment.

Working with the I.T infrastructure team might be fun and challenging but again, this kind of job is very critical. A minute of downtime might already have a big effect for the company.

In this article, I would be listing down some of the most important equipment that the IT department must have for them to react well in every situation. Troubleshooting might be able to do the job but in some cases where time is a factor, replacing a defective equipment might be more efficient.

Major Update For Windows 10

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 21 Mar, 2016
A few months ago, Microsoft released their latest operating system which is the Windows 10. As we all know, all their products undergo beta testing but it does not mean that it is already error free. As a windows 10 user, I also experienced some bugs that were present on their first release.

I remember years back that Vista was introduced on the market but it was discontinued and was tagged by users as a failed product. Vista contained severe bugs that even the markers of the product discontinued support.

The debut of Windows 10 was a thumbs up but many have not yet upgraded their systems because according to them, there is a big possibility that it still contains bugs. They were actually right but I was firm on my stand that I will immediately upgrade my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 once it is already available.

After weeks of waiting after the global release, it finally notified me for upgrade and right after that, I tried navigating it and noticed that after the upgrade to Windows 10, my computer's response is slower than usual. After a while, I noticed that the problem is slowly getting back and it even affected my... ... continue |

Monitoring Your Employees the Easy Way

By: Mon Peter I. Damiles Posted: 21 Mar, 2016
Monitoring your employees it not an easy task to do especially if you have lots of them. An IT team might be there to monitor them but the problem is, employees could easily sneak in and out to try to bypass the blockers and everything.

An IT team might be available at your office 24/7 but they could not be able to monitor them one by one especially if they are busy doing something. In this article, I will be sharing about a program that you could possibly use which could help you monitoring your employees 24/7.

I have tried several programs but this would be one of the top when it comes to monitoring employees. The program is called, Activtrak.

Activtrak is actually a program that could monitor the things that the employees are doing on their computer regardless if they are using a proxy or even a VPN. It is capable of taking screenshots of a desktop when it detects that a specific site or program is listed on the alarm list. When an alarm is triggered, it could do things depending on your choice. You can automatically close the program that the employee is opening or you could inform them... ... continue |

Teamwork - This is actually one of the most important thing that the IT department must have. Working as one will result to good things. Productivity will increase and pending tasks will be finished faster. Always remember the saying that "two minds are better than one"
