While Microsoft may be eager to sell its “re-imagined” Windows 8 to enterprises, Forrester research reveals that IT leaders are not keen to move onto the operating system any time soon.
With Apple reporting a decline in profit margins and Samsung consolidating its leadership in the mobile device market, earnings results and market research reports this week point to the ever-increasing importance of smartphones as key to growth in tech.

Here are five pitfalls to watch out for.
Project managers might just have the toughest job in IT, responsible as they are for ensuring that high-stakes IT projects are completed on time and on budget. According to a new report from Forrester Research, the project manager's role is getting even more demanding and difficult to fill.
