Malaga is sea, but also smart city

smart city

Cities have grown because there are many reasons to live in them and because the increase in life expectancy contributes to that. The increase of people together with a higher rate of aging and the fact that we are more demanding require better services.

The services and the state of our cities have improved a lot in recent years and even if we can put a damper on this, … the last one would be … but they are there! They are a reality that we need to maintain and continue to improve.

When the trees do not let you see the forest

business intelligenceWe all know how important it is to have information and know how to handle it correctly in all areas of life and, of course, in the world of the company, where a suitable solution can be a revenue of many thousands of euros.

Cloud Computing: Are you in the clouds?

cloud computing

What is it? Is it something new? Does it save costs?
In a very simple way we could define “Cloud computing” as a platform to offer services through the Network, accessible from any place and with any type of device, or in other words it allows us, among other things, to install applications to work in Internet, hosting them externally and without having enough capacity to organize the information.

From a more technical point of view, integrates in a unique way Saas (software as a service), Paas (platform as a service) and Iaas (infrastructure as services). Forgive the acronyms, but I think it’s interesting to name them because they are well-known terms in the sector and it is good that when they offer this type of service, they know its meaning and do not sound like ‘Chinese’.
