  • It started with discussion following the tragic school shooting. That discussion led to the development of a security system that two Elgin business owners hope will prevent future Sandy Hook-type tragedies.

     
  • There’s a lot of data about you and your company out on the Internet. And if you deal in e-commerce, your livelihood is dependent on data from you and your customers. But who really controls that data, and do you have the trust that those who control it are using it in the proper manner? 
  • Motorola Solutions’ new Symbol TC70 is a handheld computer that looks and operates like a smartphone. And it won’t bend if you put it in your pants pocket.

     
  • What do you do when some of the world’s biggest tech companies get together at your front doorstep? For Zebra Technologies, the answer was simple: Throw a party and show off your “things.”

     
  • Hackers have been in the news almost regularly this year, as cybercriminals have successfully breached the networks of dozens of major companies from Target and JP Morgan Chase to Jewel/Osco. But you don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company to be the victim of cybercrime. 
  • Why has mobile technology been embraced so quickly? The answer is, simply, that it’s simple, says Alex Bratton, CEO of Lisle-based mobile solutions developer Lextech Solutions. 

     
  • Rev3 Innovation Center, the suburban-based manufacturing-technology business incubator being supported by Choose DuPage, is starting itself up within the Northern Illinois University’s Naperville Campus at 1120 E. Diehl Road. 
  • A new device on the market can monitor and control your WAN network, with the added bonus of providing significant cost savings, according to  Erik Person, president of Schaumburg-based TeamLogicIT.

  • Elmhurst College’s Deicke Center for Nursing has ramped up its simulator program with the recent opening of the Clinical Simulation and Immersive Learning Center at Elmhurst Hospital. 
  • Even when he was growing up in Lake Zurich, Ryan Coon knew he had an entrepreneurial spirit.

  • Women comprise about one half of the nation’s workforce, yet they only make up 9 percent of the nation’s information technology workforce. It’s a large gap in an industry already dealing with another gap — the one between the number of available jobs and skilled workers needed to fill them.
