Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone, and welcome back from holidays (unless of course, you are still on holiday you lucky thing) and I trust you have had a refreshing break.

2012 is shaping up to be an interesting year. A whole raft of new application software will be released designed from the ground up as Software as a Service offerings, while old on-premises favourites will be ported to the Cloud with varying degrees of success.

Other things that may push forward the adoption of business in the Cloud will be the rollout of Ultra Fast Broadband around the country, and the ongoing hard disk drive supply shortage due to the terrible floods in Thailand. The former will increase business confidence in the concept of their vital data being on the other end of the wire. The latter may push more businesses to consider ways of doing business that do not require them to refesh their desktop hardware.

Here at Think I.T. we continue to grow and develop. With the acquisition of Positive Retail Solutions' customer base in January, we have extended our presence in the retail market. We are futher enhancing our niche hosted Practice Management solution for medical specialists. We are also adding to and strengthening our relationships with a variety of third-party hosted and Cloud solution providers.

 All in all, it should be an interesting year!
