Word of the Day: WaaS – Workspace as a Service

Workspace-as-a-Service, or WaaS, is a form of desktop virtualization that companies utilize to provide their employees with access to business applications and data from anywhere at any time using the employee’s device of a choice.

With workspace-as-a-service solutions, employees can log in to the WaaS provider’s service and be provided with a virtual workspace desktop environment that appears and operates like their actual physical office desktop. In this manner, WaaS solutions enable employees to be more productive and capable of accessing critical applications and data regardless of their geographic location.

Word of the Day: ERP – Enterprise Resource Planning

ERP is short for enterprise resource planning.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) is business process management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the business and automate many back office functions related to technology, services and human resources. ERP software integrates all facets of an operation, including product planning, development, manufacturing, sales and marketing.

In contrast, Small business ERP applications are lightweight business management software solutions, customized for the business industry you work in.

Word of the Day: Virus

A computer virus is a program or piece of code that is loaded onto your computer without your knowledge and runs against your wishes. Viruses can also replicate themselves. All computer viruses are man-made. A simple virus that can make a copy of itself over and over again is relatively easy to produce. Even such a simple virus is dangerous because it will quickly use all available memory and bring the system to a halt. An even more dangerous type of virus is one capable of transmitting itself across networks and bypassing security systems.

Since 1987, when a virus infected ARPANET, a large network used by the Defense Department and many universities, many antivirus programs have become available. These programs periodically check your computer system for the best-known types of viruses.

Some people distinguish between general viruses and worms. A worm is a special type of virus that can replicate itself and use memory, but cannot attach itself to other programs.
