Cloud computing has changed the way businesses and people think about using technology to serve their needs. Too many, cloud computing is nothing but hype and overblown as the new direction for Information Technology. But to many more, cloud computing represents the future of how every business should plan, operate and execute applications, systems and processes. Goldman Sachs forecasts spending on cloud computing infrastructure and platforms will grow at a 30% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018 compared with 5 percent growth for overall enterprise IT. Moreover, Forrester recently revised its 2011 forecast of the public cloud market size upward by 20 percent. Regardless, it is important to know what cloud computing is.
Thanks to numerous, headline-making incidents in recent years,
cybercrime has risen toward the top of the concern list for many
organizations—and the customers with whom they do business.
You’ve heard many of the stories. Major health insurers, such as
Anthem, Premera BlueCross and CareFirst had personal information

also damaged systems and applications—making it extremely
difficult for the company to conduct business. The list goes on.
Some you maybe haven’t heard, like the one about CodeSpaces, a
provider of version management services to developers. When

The role of enterprise content management (ECM) as a centralized document repository is well established. However, the value of ECM increases exponentially when it is leveraged as an information hub between line-of-business (LOB) systems to facilitate key processes, keep data in sync and maximize investments in existing applications.

Cloud migration has exploded in popularity since General Electric’s (GE’s) flashy keynote at Amazon Web Service’s (AWS’s) re:Invent in September 2015. GE claims to be migrating all workloads not containing secret information. Enterprises are revisiting public cloud and exploring whether existing or systems-of-record applications have a place in that world. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals on this path should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach to outsourcing and migration plans, opting instead for an app-by-app assessment.
The increase in mobile devices and cloud applications has changed everything, from where we work, to how we communicate, collaborate, and store information. A new approach to security is needed.
