PORTLAND, ME --
2013 - Winxnet, an IT outsourcing and consulting
firm that supports the complete IT strategy and
services needs of small and mid-sized
businesses, today announced it has been named to
the Ingram Micro 2013 SMB 500. The list was
revealed at Ingram Micro's 2013 Fall SMB
Invitational and celebrates the top 500
fastest-growing Ingram Micro U.S. channel
partners focused on small and midsize businesses
(SMBs). Ranked at number 102, Winxnet grew its
business with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the
world's largest technology distributor, by more
than 285 percent.

providers and MSPs who work with Ingram Micro's
U.S. SMB Business Unit. This year's top

Developed in collaboration with Ingram Micro's
Business Intelligence Center and U.S. SMB
Business Unit, as well as channel research
services firm The 2112 Group, the list also
takes into account select criteria such as
company size, overall technology category

SharePoint is likely to go down as one of the most
successful technology products in history. As of
mid-2012, 65,000 organizations (including 78% of the
Fortune 500) had purchased 125 Million SharePoint
licenses and one in five knowledge workers had
access to the application.
But just because so many organizations have
SharePoint doesn't mean that it's right for every
organization. Below are thoughts I've put together
to help executives answer the question "Does my
organization need SharePoint?"
The first step in
assessing whether your organization needs SharePoint
is to establish the context for how you should be
thinking about SharePoint. Organizations really fall
into one of two buckets:
Smaller companies with perhaps 50 or fewer
employees that have fairly basic document
management and collaboration needs; or
Larger, more complex organizations that have
more sophisticated challenges in areas such
as knowledge management, collaboration,
communication, and employee engagement.

In the sphere of technological innovation, you don't
have to look far to see creation and destruction are
In the railroad industry, the same high-speed
freight service that enabled growth of cities in
Illinois also disrupted agricultural businesses.
More recently, digital technology has routed
chemical-based photography, and the Internet is
thrusting the print media industry towards possible
extinction. Creation and destruction side by side.
Or, as the early 20th-century economist Joseph
Schumpeter put it, "creative destruction."
Looking ahead, what's a business leader,
policy-maker or society to do? With hundreds of new
technologies vying to be "the next big thing," how
can they know which will rise and which will fall?
The McKinsey Global Institute has published astudy
that cuts through the fog, identifying the 12
technologies it considers most likely to transform
life, business and the global economy by 2025. Top
of the list is the mobile Internet, closely followed
by the Internet of Things and cloud technology.
Cloud Services you can trust: Security, Compliance
and Privacy in Office 365
permission from Microsoft
When you make a decision to place your trust in a
cloud services provider for productivity services,
security, compliance, and privacy are top of mind.
With over a billion customers on Office and decades
of experience running online services, Microsoft
understands what it takes to earn and continue to
maintain your trust and confidence in Office 365.
Microsoft's construct for security, compliance and
privacy in Office 365 has two equally important
dimensions - Built-in capabilities that include
service-wide, technical capabilities, operational
procedures and policies that are enabled by default
for customers using the service and Customer
controls that include features that enable you to
customize the Office 365 environment based on the
specific needs of your organization.
Below is a look at Built-in capabilities and
Customer controls for each of the key pillars of
trust - Security, Privacy and Compliance.
