New Software Release: PCmover Profile Migrator

For over twenty years, I have been a proponent of what we now call “cloud computing.” Back in the 90’s, the approach was more simple, but the need “for cultural transformation in large enterprises and for productivity in small business” (Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, 2018) existed back then as it does today. Microsoft currently wants to transition customers into a “paradigm of people-centered” experiences. To … Continue reading New Software Release: PCmover Profile Migrator

SafeErase: Its Critical Importance
