The cloud refers to software and services that run on the Internet, instead of locally on your computer. Most cloud services can be accessed through a Web browser like Firefox or Google Chrome, and some companies offer dedicated mobile apps.
Some examples of cloud services include Google Drive, Apple iCloud, Netflix, Yahoo Mail, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive.
The advantage of the cloud is that you can access your information on any device with an Internet connection. It’s what allows you to make edits to a file in Google Docs on your home computer, and then pick up where you left off when you get to the office.
Outsourcing is a business practice in which services or job functions are farmed out to a third party. In information technology, an outsourcing initiative with a technology provider can involve a range of operations, from the entirety of the IT function to discrete, easily defined components, such as disaster recovery, network services, software development or QA testing.
SDN – which is an architecture approach, not a specific product – has traditionally been thought of as virtualizing data center networks. This typically means separating the management of the control plane of network devices from the underlying data plane that forwards network traffic. Using a software-defined system to control this disaggregation brings many benefits, including increased network management flexibility and being able to more easily implement fine-grained security policies.
IT STRATEGY FOR YOUR BUSINESS.
The classic approach to developing a new technology strategy involves a fairly structured, sequential process that produces a long-term view of the organisation’s technology requirements together with a plan for meeting these needs.
However, speed and agility are becoming key factors in determining whether an organisation can survive in the fast-moving and dynamic markets that are the hallmark of the digital world. Business strategies need to be flexible and organisations need to be able to change direction, reprioritise and create new capabilities more quickly and more often than they have done in the past.
I can help you defining that balance between your classic and agile IT strategy.
I(O)T MAKES SENSE.
Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of things connected to each other and refers to an ecosystem comprising of objects, connectivity and application/services. There are a number of projections on the size of the market by 2020 and the projections vary significantly but all projections agree to a minimum of $1 trillion plus addition to economic activity due to IoT. This is a big number and driving almost every company (even remotely related to IoT) to encash the IoT hype.
I’d be happy to meet. Let’s get started.
