As rollApp is a fan of opensource solutions we want to share with you 5 tips on migrating to opensource software, in case you are still hesitating. Jack Wallen from Techrepublic tells you more on the topic.
Summing up opensource theme, we are moving to new Mozilla Firefox 32, which stable release is now available for free download. This time Mozilla made emphasis on security, well quite sensible decision. What other new features are available in new browser version check in IBT article.
To work with rollApp you need not only a browser, but also cloud storage (if you wish to save and share your files). One of supported cloud storage is Box, which in fact has already went more further than just a cloud storage solution. This week Box CEO Aaron Levie has made an announcement of Box Workflow - “a technology that powers business processes on top of the Box platform”. BoxWorks team blusters to satisfy enterprise customers with enhanced feature suite, which is called to bring “unprecedented value, while still delivering a simple, intuitive experience” according to Box’s blog.
