Then it was followed by the wireless keyboard and soon one can enjoy music with wireless headphones allowing you to dance your way while listening to your favorite track.

Advances in technology has allowed us to untangle ourselves from a myriad of computer peripherals that used to be dependent on the cumbersome wires to make them simply work. Nowadays, we can work effortlessly without the need to ‘plug in’.

Reaching for the Clouds

Cloud computing is gaining significant traction as a new IT delivery model with potential business and financial benefits. Because cloud computing is still relatively new, organizations are grappling with what this emerging delivery model is, what some of the potential barriers are, and how best to take advantage of it.

In the next five years, IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost threefold, reaching US$42 billion by 2012 and accounting for 9 percent of revenues in five key market seg¬ments. Software as a Service (SaaS) is the most mature offering in this area. New cloud services include a growing array of applications, platforms and infrastructure.

After eight committed years of service with HP, Bernadette Nacario is leaving her post as Country General Manager of the Personal Systems Group (PSG) effective April 8, 2010. Ms. Nacario has decided to pursue an exciting opportunity outside HP.

Ms. Nacario rejoined HP in 2004 as Country General Manager for both Personal Systems Group (PSG) and Imaging and Printing Group (IPG). In the middle of 2006, she requested to focus on PSG to drive the business unit to the next level of growth. Since then, HP PSG Philippines has consistently achieved remarkable growth even amidst the global financial crisis. HP PSG also regained its market leadership position in the Philippines under her steadfast leadership.

Over the past few years, she has strengthened partner and customer engagement and gained their confidence. During her 6-year stint, HP PSG won key strategic accounts to gain strong market share for PSG’s business. She also led the team in developing industry-leading & innovative programs such as the “HP My Backyard” & “HP Island.”

HP wishes Ms. Nacario the best of luck in her future endeavours.
