My name is Savas Papadopoulos (Dr. Business Admin. abd, M.B.A., B.Sc. Computer Science) and I welcome you to my blog!

I work now for a backup software company and developed an interest in business, innovation, and psychology while at university. My doctoral work in business administration and management focused mainly on innovation and how to judge an organization’s readiness to innovate ‘as a whole’.

The purpose of this blog is to describe, vent, invent, criticize, praise, demonstrate, and to reach out to others who may want to share their opinion and perspective. I hope we’ll have plenty of interesting discussions, too.

I sincerely wish to help my readers with this blog as I am a strong believer in knowledge sharing.

I am looking forward to reading your comments on my blog and hope you enjoy an article or two! Topics that will receive attention include: backup software, server backup, VMware backup, computer backup, and cloud backup.
