Amazon defines Quantum Computing as “a multidisciplinary field comprising aspects of computer science, physics, and mathematics that utilizes quantum mechanics to solve complex problems faster than on classical computers.”
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a valuable tool for information technology (IT) leaders in recent years. With the ability to analyze large volumes of data quickly and accurately, AI can help IT leaders make better decisions, improve operations, and drive innovation. However, some leaders warn that AI poses great potential for harm.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the business world and innovations roll out so fast that it’s difficult to stay abreast of all the changes. Major industries are seeing revolutionary advancements with AI, including new tools like ChatGPT and AI art generators.
Just how much is AI impacting the business landscape? Approximately 44% of companiesplan to invest heavily in AI this year. How much will this AI escalation in business increase Internet usage?
While it may take its name from the Facebook rebrand name “Meta,” the Metaverse is anything but a singular entity. It encompasses virtually every aspect of Internet technology, particularly bandwidth-heavy AR and VR applications. Perhaps Wired.com had a good idea when they suggested replacing the phrase “the metaverse” in a sentence with “cyberspace.”
The world of IT thrives on constant change, and this can be difficult to keep pace with. With AR, VR, autonomous vehicles, ever-rising levels of data use and production, advancing communications, and the metaverse, it can be almost impossible to stay abreast of it all.
The gap remains wide for hiring women in IT roles. This is unfortunate, for at the same time, a diverse workforce often leads to better hiring practices, more engaged employees, and higher retention rates. Just how wide is the gap?

Laggy laptops, drained desktops, overworked operating systems, slack security software — these and more outdated technologies can cost businesses time, money, reputation and more. But this malaise seems to be more common that you may realize.
A study conducted by ZenBusiness in 2019 polled nearly 1,000 workers. The results were eye-opening, starting with more than 50% of respondents believing office technology was outdated. More specifically, 83.1% believed that computers were outdated and 70.5% believed software and applications were old.
How do you know when technology is too old?
Necessity may be the mother of invention, but if the COVID-19 crisis has taught us anything, it is that reinvention, or the ability to reinvent technology to transform how a business operates, is vital to survival. The pandemic dramatically accelerated the need and development of new digital capabilities for companies to remain viable and competitive.
What new IT technologies will become even more prevalent in 2021? MHO suggests that businesses keep watching for new and improved IT tech that will help businesses stay relevant in our new post-pandemic world. Below are some major areas where advancements can be expected.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has had numerous detrimental effects on people and the economy, there have been some positive results as well. One of these is that many people have been afforded the chance to work from home. This has turned out to be a boon for businesses as well as employees.
The Brookings Institute reports that, “Up to half of American workers are currently working from home, more than double the fraction who worked from home (at least occasionally) in 2017-18.” Furthermore, Forbes reported a Gartner survey about this phenomenon, known as ‘telecommuting,’ that indicated as much as 20% of the workforce of those surveyed will continue telecommuting long-term.
But even for those growing accustomed to working from home, a steady routine is vital to keep you on track. Here are some vital factors to maintaining a steady, productive routine as you work from home.
