It’s time to review the successes of the year-gone-by and make preparations for the challenges of the year ahead. With that in mind, let’s look at the most popular stories on the blog in 2011.
At five, our article “Are you a barrier to homeworking?” by Steve Gillies looks at the differences between agile and home working and some of the barriers people can face when trying to work flexibly. Not only did this article prove popular, clocking up close to 2,000 views, but it also got a lot of you discussing the subject. Fantastic: we love nothing more than to see our readers discussing our content and sharing their own experiences.
To this day we’re not sure if it was the title or the content that got you reading, but “Is your IT Director’s finger in the dyke?” has earned it’s place at number four. In it we highlight the multiple points of access your IT Director has to ‘plug’ in order to keep your organisation secure, as well as the ever-changing landscape of IT security and what can be done to stay up-to-date.
“Death of the desktop” is our third most popular article this year and looks at the possibility that the standard corporate desktop is coming to an end. If this status quo were to shift and your employees revolt, what are the implications of them bringing their own technology to work?
At number two. “If I can’t see them, I can’t manage them” looks at the evolving concept of Management by Walking Around (MBWA) and at how, in today’s multiple-sited, flexible-working office, this may become Management by Calling Around.
And finally, with over 9,000 views, “Confused about cloud? Not anymore” flies (or drifts) into the number one spot in our top five articles of 2011. If you’re looking for a snapshot on cloud computing, then this is a great place to start — but bear in mind that throughout the year we’ve had a host of other articles on the subject.
