Today’s mobile work force has an increasing need for on-demand document sharing and collaboration. And they’ll find the tools, with or without the help of your IT department. Are you willing to let the consumerization of IT dictate the security (or lack thereof) of your company’s documents?

File-Sharing services like DropBox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and SharePoint are becoming increasingly ubiquitous today because of the need workers have for access to their files anywhere, anytime and on any device. The reward can be great. But what is the risk?

Join Simplex-IT’s Bob Coppedge for this eye-opening presentation as he explores the often overlooked requirements of Enterprise-grade file-sharing services: Security – Version Control – File/Folder Management – Cross-Platform Access – Local Sync Capabilities and Administrative Controls.

Windows Server 2012 eBookBob here.  Ok, we’ve posted a few notices here and there about Microsoft making some eBooks available at no charge.

And when the “Dog Days of August” come around, we realize it’s the one month that doesn’t have any major holidays associated with it.  Ok, besides August 8th’s “National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day,” of course.

So Microsoft has decided to make available (for those of us not enamored by Zucchini nor neighbors who are themselves enamored by it) a ton of eBooks.  For free.

And we’re talking the full IT Gamut here.  SQL 2012, Office 365, Windows Server 2012, SharePoint, and more.

There are books for both experienced and entry-level folks.  Microsoft has been extremely generous making these eBooks available in the past.  This time they’ve really outdone themselves.

Microsofts IT book for TeensMy personal favorite title:  “Own Your Space–Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online Digital Book for Teens.”  Just the kind of grabby title kids will not be able to resist.  Makes you wonder if Microsoft had created the title for the first Harry Potter Book(Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” and titled it:  “Harry Potter, which is a fictional character who has some forms of magical abilities (which are also fictional), looks for a piece of rock (fictional) with a Liberal Arts background:  V3.1”

So, the choice is Zucchini or Microsoft eBooks?

Here’s your first clue:  I’m ordering a meat lovers pizza.
