  • BrianMadden.com Zeitgeist 2011

    Taking a page from Google's annual Zeitgeist metrics , we decided to compile some of our own for BrianMadden.com. (Actually we did this a long time ago, though it looks like we haven't since 2004 .) We posted 447 new articles & videos in 2011 (including...

  • Citrix bought AppDNA. Quest bought ChangeBASE. Can we declare a winner? Let's look at both.

    With both AppDNA and ChangeBASE being recently acquired , (by Citrix and Quest, respectively) Gabe and I decided to get both of them on the phone. Our intention wasn’t really to do a head-to-head shoot-out and declare a winner; rather it was more...

  • Attention Vendors: If your products only work with virtual desktops in 2012, man… good luck with that!

    One of my biggest themes of 2012 is going to be that desktop virtualization is more about "desktops" and less about "virtualization." Those who are (or who are to be) successful with desktop virtualization will be those who are successful with Windows...

  • Gadget fatigue? What are vendors supposed to do, stop innovating?

    It's no secret that consumer technology evolves much more quickly than enterprise software. For example, think of the first cell phone you had (or maybe you called it a "car phone" back then). Compare that to the phone in your pocket. There's barely a...

  • Gadget fatigue? What are vendors supposed to do, stop innovating?

    It's no secret that consumer technology evolves much more quickly than enterprise software. For example, think of the first cell phone you had (or maybe you called it a "car phone" back then). Compare that to the phone in your pocket. There's barely a resemblance! Now think of Microsoft Word 95. It doesn't look that much different than Word 2011, does it? The speed of evolution in the consumer technology...

  • FUIT: Is your company's internet too slow or restrictive? Hello portable WiFi hotspot!

    Note: If you haven't read the introduction to this type of post, FUIT posts are written in a somewhat snarky way, with a fake company and situations that, while true, don't necessarily reflect stuff that we (as in Brian, Jack, and I) actually do. All...

  • FUIT: Is your company's internet too slow or restrictive? Hello portable WiFi hotspot!

    Note: If you haven't read the introduction to this type of post, FUIT posts are written in a somewhat snarky way, with a fake company and situations that, while true, don't necessarily reflect stuff that we (as in Brian and I) actually do. All we're doing is talking about what's going on already in organizations, trying to raise awareness by exposing the methods people are using to circumvent IT policies...

  • If Apple allows iOS apps on Apple TV, will that be the ultimate thin client for only $99?

    We've all heard of the Apple TV. Some love it, some hate it, and the reasons for that are pretty well documented . The thing is, most of those opinions all pertain to its ability as a home theater device and not much else. Still, it's hard to look at...

  • Think MDM will enable BYOD? Think again! Let's look at the difference.

    It’s important to acknowledge the difference between mobile device management and a bring-your-own-device program. MDM has been around for years, and what results when a MDM solution is implemented is different then what is needed to simply accommodate...

  • Think MDM will enable BYOD? Think again! Let's look at the difference.

    It’s important to acknowledge the difference between mobile device management and a bring-your-own-device program. MDM has been around for years, and what results when a MDM solution is implemented is different then what is needed to simply accommodate users’ personal devices. An IT department (and, if everything is running smoothly, HR and a few other departments) needs to actively decide...
