      The Right Place at the Right Time: the Story of IBM

      In 1911, Charles Runlet Flint began by merging three companies: International Time Recording Company, Computing Scale Company of America, and the Tabulating Machine Company. The company formed would be known as the Computing-Tablet-Recording Company, or CTR for short.

      CTR’s machines could perform a number of functions, such as sorting, analyzing, and running calculations based on simple punch cards inserted into the machine. These machines were built with business uses in mind, but the value of the devices started to skyrocket around the time that Thomas Watson was brought on board as the company president, a risky move that some saw as creating a monopoly and violating the Sherman Antitrust Act.

      Watson understood that his target audience--businesses--would want these tabulating machines, but he also knew that CTR’s services could be very valuable to users through the use of a service offering, more so than an actual product. This approach proved to be successful for both CTR and its customers, as the sales team was able to properly communicate what the end users wanted to see implemented next.

      1924 was the year that CTR changed their name to International Business Machines, and 1925 saw the rise of Watson as both the chief executive officer and chief operating officer of the organization. IBM would then continue in the face of adversity, especially during the Great Depression when federal agencies’ needed computing hardware to comply with President Roosevelt’s New Deal mandates.

      Future demand for these machines only increased during wartime, and Watson’s son, Thomas Watson Jr., was eventually named his father’s successor in 1952. By this time, computers had grown in popularity and were more commonplace in the office environment. Organizations that had previously purchased IBM tabulators made a simple transition to IBM computers.

      In 1949, IBM introduced itself to the global market, offering sales worldwide to a total of 58 different countries. During this time, IBM World Trade Corporation’s control over the global market soared everywhere but Japan and the United Kingdom, achieving only a modest 33 percent in these countries.

      In 1952, history repeated itself and IBM was hit with another antitrust lawsuit from the United States government, and another from a specialized computer organization called Control Data Corporations. IBM endured these allegations and changes in leadership until the 1980s, at which point it began to falter under the duress from other competitors. This resulted in a change in their management strategy, which allowed IBM to muscle their way through many more years of business. Around 2004, their success rate stabilized once again.

      There are lessons to be learned from the tumultuous history of computing’s most innovative organization. Creating the right partnerships and providing a service that’s in high demand can go a long way toward keeping your business in… business. IBM also showcases how it’s possible to overcome challenges like changes in the market, and how having strong leadership is important. Your business can use this knowledge to its advantage and perhaps become the IBM of your industry, one day.

      Tip of the Week: Use this Free PC Tool to Find Out Which Files You Should Delete Next

      Although, before we get started, we should add a disclaimer about deleting large files on a company computer. As a rule, users should first check with their company’s IT administrator before deleting anything major from their PC. Taking this precaution will avoid the deleting of any mission-critical files or apps.

      WinDirStat, short for Windows Directory Statistics, is a free tool that provides you with a visual “treemap” representation of how the space on your drive is being used. You can download the app directly from the developer’s website: https://windirstat.net/download.html

      When you open WinDirStat, it reads your drive’s entire directory tree and then presents it in three useful displays:

      • Directory List: Resembles the tree view of Windows Explorer but is sorted by file/subtree size.
      • Treemap: Shows the whole contents of the directory tree.
      • Extension List: Shows statistics about the file types.

      When the WinDirStat is, up and running, it will display your data in treemap view. Each file is represented by a colored rectangle and the rectangle’s size is proportional to the file’s size. These rectangles are arranged by directories and subdirectories. This makes the area of these rectangles proportional to the size of the subtrees. Plus, the color of each rectangle indicates the file type and you can easily search the corresponding color in the extension list for information regarding each rectangle.

      Armed with this knowledge, you can then make informed decisions about what files to delete in order to free up hard drive space. Although, it’s important to keep in mind that deleting these large files isn’t your only option if you’re looking to free up space. If you’re hesitant to delete a large file because it’s meaningful (like a video), yet you rarely access it so it makes sense to get it off your drive, then you can always free up space by moving the file to another drive, like an external drive, a network drive, or even the cloud.

      Of course, when it comes to freeing up hard drive space and improving your PC’s performance, using a tool like WinDirStat is a great place to start, but there’s still many more actions that can be taken.

      Would You Rather: Maintain Your Technology, or Accomplish a Business Goal?

      More businesses than ever before are leaning toward a third party managing their technology infrastructure, rather than investing the time and capital into doing so themselves. The tradeoff might seem a little strange at first--after all, why pay someone else to manage your IT when you can do it yourself? You’ll be blown away by the long-term cost savings that managed IT represents, particularly in regard to saving both time and resources that can be better spent on other parts of your organization, like operations.

      Consider it like this: any time spent on managing your business’s technology, is time that you could be spending on your business’s operations.

      Of course, the option of hiring an internal IT department is always there as well, but this can be a much bigger expense in the long run than simply going through a third-party managed service provider. If you have to pay multiple salaries, this expense can quickly outweigh paying a monthly operational fee that a managed service provider might offer. It’s an easy choice to make, but only if you’re willing to make it for the good of your business.

      One of the common misconceptions of managed IT is that you’ll be giving up the control of your infrastructure to people that you don’t know. However, this simply isn’t true. Any good managed service provider, like the technicians at Symmetric Engineering Group, wants to build a trusting relationship with the businesses they work with. This involves transparency at every turn. Only by cooperating and helping each other work toward a proactive technology strategy can any business make strides toward a better operational infrastructure.

      Managed service providers offer a plethora of services that your organization can take advantage of. Included are the following:

      • Network security management
      • Email management
      • Hardware and software procurement
      • Remote maintenance and management
      • Backup and disaster recovery
      • Help desk support
      • And more!

      If your business wants to take full advantage of its technology, reach out to Symmetric Engineering Group at (813) 749-0895.
