IT is all about data!

4 areas to make sure your data up to snuff

Blog-post by,

Is this how you think about IT? Or do you think of IT in terms of the technology it deploys instead? I recently was interviewing a CIO at Fortune 50 Company about the changing role of CIOs. When I asked him about which technology issues were most important, this CIO said something that surprised me. He said, “IT is all about data. Think about it. What we do in IT is all about the intake of data, the processing of data, the store of data, and the analyzing of data. And we need, from data, to increasingly provide the intelligence to make better decisions”.

Infrastructure teams tend to think shorter term and as a consequence are often ill-suited to lead cloud migrations. How do I know? I've had contact with three customers recently where the marching orders were to move quickly and invest as little as possible in the migration. The goal was to reduce costs move by shuttering data centers and manage multiple suppliers.

Buy Research Papers Online or Get Assignment Writing Service to Write a Custom Paper

Blog-post by,

Students are smart. They know how to get things done but when it is a matter of writing research papers, their limitations show up. If you are a student you may think that you have sufficient time at your disposal and will be able to complete your assignment within a week so you plan to start a week before the deadline. Some students may even think of buying research papers online. This saves them the bother of having to think of a unique idea and treat it from a different perspective as is required in research papers.

However, this doesn’t offer the full support that archival storage provides.

You simply can’t map resources to project priorities without objective visibility into all of your available resources.
