The Fight Is On... Microsoft Office 2013 V Office 365

Microsoft Office. We all use it. We all love it. But, let’s face it, understanding the licensing has never been easy. Each new version seems to bring with it an array of options designed to provide choice to users, but in actual fact just confuses the hell out of us. Take Microsoft Office 2013 versus Office 365 for example. Back in April, Microsoft released iPad versions of its Office suite including Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It was all pretty exciting because the apps were free to download but then you realised that you could not properly edit documents or use many of the apps features without purchasing a subscription to Office 365. This prompted many who were not already using Office 365 to subscribe and many more to debate the benefits. So at ITbuilder the fight is on... Microsoft Office 2013 v Office 365 which is best for you? In the red corner Office 365 Subscription It’s All There! - Office 365 includes the full Office suite of Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Publisher, O ...

Top 3 Windows 8 Fixes

It’s been around a while but still it's one of the most complained about things this year and it seems that love it or hate it most of you hate Windows 8! Why? Well it seems that Microsoft may have misjudged its target audience who are happy to adapt but unwilling to completely change the way they use Windows. After 17 years... yes really... 17 years of Microsoft many of you just weren’t ready for a change.  Figuring it all out can be really annoying for the Windows 8 newcomer so let’s take a look at some of the Windows 8 problems you face and how to fix them. 1. Bring Back the Start Menu Problem: Those of you using Windows 8 will know that this is a common complaint because the traditional start menu located in the bottom left hand side of the screen is gone and you keep on going back to find it missing! Without it, searching for programs from within the Desktop interface can be incredibly tedious. Fix: Using software simulating the good old Start Menu can really sav ...

What is BYOD? Pros & Cons

BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device referring to the practice of staff using their Smartphones, tablets and laptops for work. If you were working in the 1980s or even the 1990s then you will remember a simpler time in terms of IT infrastructure. Remember when you just came to work and your big old PC was there on your desk... you switched it on and used it then went home and didn’t use it? Companies had tight control over their users and networks because predominantly it was just office based PCs with a few laptops thrown in for the directors and CEOs. Fast forward into 2014 and we have a completely different environment due to rapid advancements in technology combined with the low cost of personal devices. We can work from anywhere, connect via Wifi, send emails on our phones, access cloud hosted servers with our tablet and monitor team projects from anywhere in the world. It is the age of BYOD (bring your own device) and it is estimated that now 4 out of 5 office workers will use their own device ...
