According to a recent study, IT pros are going big in 2015 when it comes to cloud investments – and they’re looking for the people and services that can help them drive that cloud growth.
Before we look ahead to next year’s challenges and promising developments, let’s take a look back at 2014’s biggest headlines.
Many organizations think that the prep work for a new cloud storage or hosting option is hardest part. But evaluating vendors, choosing a plan of attack and beginning the migration process can only be the beginning of companies’ problems.
With so much data and so many services hosted in the cloud, IT has a very big problem on its hands: When networks are slow or unavailable, work could be, too.
Most IT pros say that cloud decisions are rarely handled by the security team, and that’s a serious problem. No wonder they also say that the cloud adds risk.
Both business and personal subscribers to Microsoft’s Office 365 are about to receive a huge expansion to their cloud storage. It’s going from one terabyte to unlimited space.
Recent breaches have once again thrust an old question back into the spotlight: Can the cloud be trusted?
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who still thinks of the cloud as a passing trend. But there are still IT pros who have some reservations – and with good reasons, too.
IT sometimes gets so lost in the down-and-dirty details of day-to-day operations that it can lose sight of what the competition is up to and where your colleagues stand. With that in mind, Spiceworks put out its annual all-things-IT report. Huge this year: the cloud and mobile, as always.
The news came recently that hackers had successfully taken down an entire company with a well-crafted cyberattack. And while the prospect of losing your business to hackers is frightening enough for IT pros, that’s only one of the many serious consequences this incident has for IT.
