Taking Your Business into the Cloud

After years of buildup, cloud computing has finally become a reality. Both small and large enterprises are quickly migrating to the cloud to eliminate big-ticket capital expenditures, and to reduce operating expenses. That is the story of IT today.

Unfortunately, making the move to the cloud is much easier said than done. Each company has a unique portfolio of IT assets and network systems that must be fully assessed before any cloud migration can begin. IT managers will need to address a series of complex questions before undertaking this important transformation.

Netflix VP/IT Michael Kail's 2014 goal: to move IT 100% to the public cloud

"Following what other people do doesn't interest me." No office...just a Chromebook, MacBook and a tablet

On the eve of the new "House of Cards" season, what could be more timely than an interview with Netflix VP of IT operations CIO Michael Kail. Two things about Netflix I find amazing: The company has a mere 1,400 employees and a whopping $426 a share stock valuation. The second thing is how Netflix - struggling a mere two years ago - reinvented itself where something like one in four Americans subscribes to it.

Cloud is maturing, but there's still plenty of room to grow

Applications should be the focus rather than IaaS, which has become a commodity.

Cloud computing is growing up, according to my 2014 outlook forecasts. It has reached the point where the cloud is commonplace, but that doesn't mean companies have maxed out of their cloud potential. Quite the opposite.

Pity the poor retail CIO. They know what they have to do, but often don't have the resources or organizational alignment to pull it off (who does, exactly?).

That retail CIOs struggle is the conclusion of a new study from Tata Consulting entitled "The Global agenda of Retail CIOs" based on interviews with "192 senior business and IT executives at global retailers." Forrester Consulting conducted the survey.
