    Off Topic: Starting my Summer with the Blossom Smart Watering Controller

    Spring brought to South Dakota plenty of rain. The lawns are green, the flowers are in full bloom, and it seems we can't go beyond a couple days without a rain shower or thunderstorm. While water is usually plenty for my city, we do things smart around here and restrict water usage for our lawns year round. It's not uncommon in my part of the country to see the weather pattern quickly change from wet to dry. What once was green can turn brown in a hurry.

    If you want a green yard when summer is in full swing, you will do best to respect the water restrictions and program your sprinkler controller the smartest way possible. Here in my city, watering lawns is not allowed during the hours of 12 p.m to 5 PM. Homeowners with even-numbered addresses may water lawns on even-numbered calendar dates and users with odd-numbered addresses may water lawns on odd-numbered calendar dates. Last summer though, my traditional sprinkler controller decided this responsibility was too much of a burden. The failing controller couldn't even keep the time of day correctly yet alone maintain an ideal watering schedule. So this May, I replaced my failing controller with Blossom's Smart Watering Controller in hopes of a greener lawn and a better sprinkler system.

    The cloud is where you need to be. At least that’s what companies are being told these days. The hype surrounding cloud computing is difficult to ignore, and organizations are responding by moving to the cloud in droves. This surge in cloud adoption makes the whole movement seem more like a fad at times, but it’s important to note that cloud computing does bring some significant benefits to the table. In other words, there’s a reason businesses are jumping on the bandwagon. At the same time, all this transitioning to the cloud can lead to mistakes, especially when companies aren’t prepared for the challenges and pitfalls they may encounter. A number of mistakes have become all too common and often lead to more costly implementations and frustrated IT workers. Businesses should take care to avoid some of the more prevalent cloud transition mistakes that crop up.

  • Does Cloud Computing Take Away Too Much Control?

    Does Cloud Computing Take Away Too Much Control?

    It’s not easy to ignore the hype surrounding the cloud. Businesses all over the world are coming to realize that cloud computing offers numerous advantages, from more productivity and capabilities to lower costs. These benefits have lead to the growth of a wide variety of cloud providers, each offering its own unique take on services and products. The result has been a groundswell of support as organizations of all types look to the cloud for solutions to common and complex business problems. Research from Verizon shows that nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of all companies are using some form of the cloud, and that number is only increasing. But as more and more organizations adopt cloud computing, a stern reality is also settling in -- to fully utilize the cloud, one must give up a significant degree of control. With so many businesses now employing the cloud in various ways, have we reached the point where we are giving up too much control?
