Businesses of all shapes and sizes are grappling with numerous trends affecting the industry at present – such as social media, security and mobility – so everyone is watching the giant firms to see what decisions they make in these areas.
As such, it was no surprise that V3’s report on Coca Cola was popular, as the firm embraces the use of iPhones over laptops and moves its staff away from SAP and to a mobile-centric setup on Salesforce software.
Meanwhile, a new issue was added to the agenda for many firms as plans for a shorter .uk domain were unveiled by Nominet, as it seeks to bring the UK in line with other nations on a two-letter system.
Yahoo’s push to encrypt all data traffic was also widely read, as the firm moves to protect its user base from the prying eyes of spy agencies around the world while the PRISM fallout continues to affect the industry.
Finally, a new Raspberry Pi starter kit was of huge interest. The Kano, which attempts to make it even easier for people to start learning how computers work, managed to raise £150,000 in two days on Kickstarter.
