BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a global leader in business technology, today introduced a new line of monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones for the Small Office and Home Office (SOHO) market, adding to the line that included their award-winning, best-selling HL-2270DW printer. While these new models boast notable upgrades, Brother has maintained the suggested retail price points that helped make them popular with SOHO users.

"Models from our award-winning monochrome laser printers and all-in-ones have been celebrated by our customers time and again for their quality output, reliability, and attractive price points," said Eric Dahl, Brother Director of Marketing for SOHO products.

All of the new mono laser models maintain the reliable performance and professional, high-quality printing that made their predecessors popular to SOHO consumers, now with an improved print speed of up to 32ppm. The compact, desk-friendly footprint allows for use in the home office, school workspace or small office.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
