A Marketer’s Guide to Choosing ERP System | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
Choosing an ERP system is a challenging task, because it’s a tricky process. There’s a plethora of vendors offering ERP business solutions and each has a set of unique features.

Much as we’d like encryption, it’s hard to give up Dropbox. BoxCryptor is an encryption solution for anyone who wants encryption but just can’t let Dropbox go.

User beware: That mobile app is spying on you | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
A recent study of the 400 most popular iOS and Android apps reveals that nearly all free apps collect users' personal data
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

.... paid iOS apps surprisingly collect more data and share that information with more third parties than Android paid apps, making iOS slightly more risky than Android. On the whole, free apps remain the most risky category ....

How Apple Sees the Cloud: Not Like You Do

How Apple Sees the Cloud: Not Like You Do | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
The news from Apple at Monday’s Worldwide Developers Conference left me with the same impression I’ve had about many presentations from the company: This looks neat, but at what point will I find my data or my apps on the wrong side of an elegantly designed, Apple-built wall? Apple’s preview page, however, says Windows uploading will be limited to just Windows 8 — as in, the version that CEO Tim Cook mocked at the start of the WWDC keynote for running on a mere 14 percent of PCs.
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

iCloud Drive looks like an improvement, but three years after iCloud’s debut, it still functions more as a cable connecting Apple-approved devices than as a window open to all.

Why Windows 8 matters and why Android will eventually just fade away.

Why Windows 8 matters and why Android will eventually just fade away. | Cloud Central | Scoop.it

I started this article by saying that Windows 8 matters. Why? Because it really does. There are people who are so convinced and will do anything to convince you that the post-PC world is already here and the “war” is over. Just like on the famous speech given on the deck of USS Abraham Lincoln there is no truth in this argument. The “war”, if you can call it that, hasn’t in many ways even started yet.
