  • Essential Steps for Cloud Services Deployment

    Published:June 3, 2013

    0

    One of the key problems contributing to failed attempts at private cloud is the assumption that IT has a better understanding of user needs than users themselves. This legacy mindset is one of the biggest reasons for user dissatisfaction with internal IT, initial cloud service deployment failure, and why public cloud services increasingly encroach on the territory of IT. The good news is that just a small amount of collaboration will go a long way toward increasing satisfaction and success rates. Business-driven initiatives, best-of-breed technologies and the inclusion of service consumers and key stakeholders are all recipes for success in cloud service deployment. With that in mind, here are seven proven strategies for CIOs to employ that will launch companies past legacy shortcomings and into a brand new world of cloud innovation.

  • Is Your BYOD Plan Exposing You to Risk

    Published:May 20, 2013

    Many organizations that were early adopters for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) have come to the realization that a successful BYOD program isn’t as easy as installing hardware and software or executing a plan, no matter how carefully that plan was put together. BYOD 1.0 may not have met expectations, but there are ways to optimize your policies and procedures so they support new technology, increase ROI and satisfaction. In this case, “new technology” means next-generation portable devices that employees want to use, but it also means new evolutions of infrastructure components like cloud servers, storage devices, security measures and network infrastructure.

    Human nature has an affinity for devising and perfecting better, faster, and cheaper ways of doing things. Long considered a hotbed of IT innovation and adoption, institutions of higher education are often on the leading edge of this search. It should come as no surprise to learn, therefore, that educational institutions – combining both cutting edge research and innovative teaching models – are leading the charge in the area of cloud computing. As university CIOs move cloud computing from an experimental stage into the realm of mainstream adoption, it is worth considering the drivers, challenges, advantages, and disadvantages of cloud computing in academia alongside specific cloud initiatives among the nation’s leading universities.

    With all the complexities in developing disaster recovery (DR) capabilities, there are two foundation components that are often overlooked or trivialized. These two “trivial” issues can bring the best laid plans for DR to a resume‐producing event. 1) If you don’t know what you’ve got, it is really hard to recover it. 2) If you don’t really understand application dependencies, the recovered application may not be capable of executing business functions.
