1140 Grids: Working the Grid

by mwilson 5. April 2012 09:27

 Hey there web designers! Are you having trouble developing a site so that it translates across several devices and browsers? Well never fear Andy Taylor has a solution. Here at DCC we’ve been working with his new 1140 CSS Grid which fits perfectly into a 1280 monitor. On smaller monitors it becomes fluid and adapts to the width of the browser. Beyond a certain point it uses media queries to serve up a mobile version, which essentially stacks all the columns on top of each other so the flow of information still makes sense. New computers, old computers, netbooks, tablets, smartphones, some feature phones are compatible and it works perfectly in Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE7 & IE8. P3 Tennis is our newest example with this model grid. Look at the image below to get a peek at just how versatile the 1140 can be.

Cloud Watching

by mwilson 6. March 2012 11:17

Recently SAP and Oracle have acquiesced RightNow, SuccessFactors and Taleo validating the move to cloud computing and surrendering ERP. This comes across as evident in their lack of plans to transition their customers perhaps hoping they will move on their own accord. Their plan to buy in to cloud computing is one that has likely come too late as this tardy adaptation will probably be irrelevant in the high-paced technological world. Have you moved to the cloud yet? Don’t be left behind; ask DCC how we can assist you in a life-long partnership and transition to the cloud

Gender Diversity

by mwilson 6. March 2012 11:15

While women make up 51% of the population their placement in tech company positions with prestige are often lower than 15%. What makes this concerning is that not only are women part of the demographic being neglected when calculating marketing strategies but companies lacking top diversity are missing out on financial performance benefits. While companies such as Ebay, LuluLemon, and Linkedin are striving to pick up the best and brightest women, the question is are you?

Age Dynamics

by mwilson 23. February 2012 09:43

Some interesting news today, recent data reports concerning smartphone demographics has been released revealing that limited budgets still make room for the coveted pieces. While 30% of those aged 35-44 years and making less than $15,000 yearly possess smartphones, that percentage increases when the demographic turns to those age groups of (18-24) and (25-34) by 56% and 43% respectively. What makes these numbers so significant concerns the 2011 poverty mark which was drawn at $10,890. What is being insinuated by those reading the reports is that older generations view the smartphone as a luxury and the youth sees it as a staple. It’s hard to decipher whether these reports reveal a zeitgeist of technology or a cohort effect, what is evident is the disparity in perspective.


Evolving Security

by mwilson 23. February 2012 09:40

SaaS solutions are on the rise and it appears they may soon be coming to a mobile device near you. Mobilisafe is currently working on their beta program that allows users to BYOD (bring your own device) to their service. The technology analyzes the users’ need for protection and relays that information back to the company so that both Mobilisafe & the company can tailor their solutions. As companies begin to use newer devices to access their corporations network security will have to adapt to keep up with hackers. Have you caught on Software as a Solution yet? DCC uses VMware to deliver SaaS solutions and other tech needs. 


Trending: The Buttonless App

by mwilson 17. February 2012 11:03

There's a new app in town and it's name is Clear. The highly anticipated application allows users to make their own to-do lists, granted they aren't too complicated. Minimalism is the best aspect of it as the few gestures of pinch, swipe, and pull-down are all that it necessitates. In fact, co-founder Phill Ryu notes that even babies are capable of using the technology. In an age where complexity rules it's refreshing to find devices that are indeed more intuitive and easy; a lesson we can all learn from. Here at DCC we are continuously analyzing ways to streamline technology to make it more user friendly and reduces stress. If you have any advice we'd love to hear it!
