The WorkForce DS-560 enables businesses to increase productivity and efficiency with Wi-Fi™ connectivity offering point-to-point scanning directly to smartphones, tablets, PCs, or Macs.

A step-up from the recently introduced WorkForce® DS-510, the WorkForce DS-560 document scanner offers a wide range of features that allow employees to be productive. In addition to its ability to scan to popular cloud services, the WorkForce DS-560 allows users to scan directly to a mobile device, ideal for employees working remotely or in the field yet requiring instant access to critical documents. For increased flexibility, users can upload scans to their cloud service of choice, such as Google Docs™ or Evernote®, directly from their mobile device.

It is also equipped with ultrasonic double-feed detection technology, which senses if more than a single page has been fed, and automatically stops the feeding to avoid missing pages or jamming.
The WorkForce DS-560 allows for seamless integration into third-party software, including custom content management systems, with the availability of TWAIN and ISIS drivers. Businesses can also leverage networking capabilities using an optional network module2 (sold separately) to support up to 100 workstations with full scanner functionality.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
