Startups with digital products are not commonly known to pursue small dreams. Once the basic idea of the product is designed and the industry niche has been identified, leadership is already thinking hard about where and to how many markets the product should be rolled out.
The mission is critical: the product must clearly create added value for the user in the local market while reflecting the needs of their local community. The challenge is making those changes in each market without losing sight of the basic idea of the product.
The success story of German ecommerce startup Yalwa - The Local Internet Company details three best practices on how young startups can realize the dream of a localized, and thus globally-positioned, digital product.
A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.

"Ransomware is top of mind for many organizations’ leaders as their organizations face the potentially disastrous aftermath of successful attacks.
ESG has surveyed IT leaders and organizations to find out how big of a problem ransomware is, what are the business consequences of downtime caused by these attacks, and which are some of the best practices and capabilities organizations need to apply to be protected.
According to the ESG research, nearly two-thirds of surveyed organizations across North America and Western Europe experienced a ransomware attack at some point last year, with 22% reporting weekly attacks. The attacks have helped make cybersecurity a target of IT investment, and spending is accelerating.
What’s needed to fend off this epidemic are best practices and tools to:
Prevent or at least mitigate attacks
