BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a global leader in business technology, today announced the MFC-J5620DW, the first model from its new line of color inkjet all-in-ones for small businesses, the Business Smart Plus Series.
The MFC-J5620DW has a number of ways to help a small business keep a close eye on its printing costs. Most notably, Super High-yield replacement ink cartridges2 can help lower cost per page by offering a yield of up to 2,400 pages black3 and 1,200 pages color3 – up to four times the output4 of High-yield ink cartridges! Automatic duplex printing can also help reduce an overall printing budget by lowering paper consumption and costs when compared to single-sided printing.
Brother knows that business printing isn't limited to letter-sized output. That's why the MFC-J5620DW offers advanced paper handling, including an adjustable paper tray that holds up to 250 sheets of paper sizes up to 11" x 17", as well as an all-new Multi-Purpose Tray that allows easy printing on specialty paper or envelopes without changing the paper in the main tray. The Multi-Purpose Tray can also hold up to 80 sheets of 8.5"x11" paper or up to 5 sheets of 11"x17" paper. And the up to 35-sheet automatic document feeder is ideal for unattended scanning, copying and faxing of multi-page documents.
To help small business professionals spend less time waiting for their important printouts and more time tending to business at hand, the MFC-J5620DW boasts fastest in class print speeds5 of up to up to 22ppm black and 20ppm color6 (ISO/IEC 24734).
The MFC-J5620DW packs all of this into a space-saving design, while offering small businesses a number of ways to connect to mobile devices7, cloud-based services8, and Ethernet and wireless networks.
"With our new Business Smart Plus Series, we're building on the success of the Business Smart Series, and further focusing on features important to our small business customers: controlling printing costs, multiple paper handling options, and fast print speeds," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing. "These models are a smart choice for businesses interested in keeping color printing budgets in line, but wanting a fully-featured device with enhanced connectivity to help boost productivity."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessions, I wanted to share some of my observations on emerging trends.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
