When a business grows and expands to multiple locations, at some point it may be very useful creating Terminal Server environments to allow employees access their files and applications from any location around the Globe.

What you might have assumed already is now official: human beings have worse attention spans than your common goldfish. Hundreds of thousands of years of evolution, turning us into hyper-alert hunters and gatherers at the top of the food chain, has been undone by less than a decade of Twitter live-streams and Facebook viral stories. Goldfish (who apparently don’t use the Internet – who knew?) can pay attention to what’s in front of them for nine seconds, while your average joe on the street now struggles to stay focused for eight.
It’s just one more piece of evidence showing that people are more distracted than ever; and what technology has broken, technology can hopefully help fix. In business, computer monitoring software isn’t just helpful – it’s essential for overworked IT folks who can’t possibly have eyes everywhere at once.
Indeed, we saw just a few weeks back that in one of the most highly regulated, technical industries around, manual monitoring can be disastrous.

We chatted with renowned productivity coach Mike Vardy of The Productivityist about how to achieve that:

Just as desktop PCs, laptops have also to be monitored in order to eliminate risks of their misuse and Internet abuse at workplace. Nowadays, every office employee has his/her own laptop. Are you concerned how your employees are surfing the Internet through their laptops when you are not around? This is a common issue for all conscious employers and managers who can’t control every moment when their employees are online. Moreover, today many school and college administrators claim that students tend to play games, chat, check new notifications on their Facebook accounts and do various other non-study related activities during classes or lectures.Read More
