The unfortunate thing is that a lot of prominent merchants will not support Apple Pay....or do not have plans in to. New payment systems are finally starting to get traction, but the real winners have yet to appear. It's hard to imagine Apple won't succeed in this market.
Our #CIOchat yesterday argued the merits of #BigData and how much traction it is getting.

“I want to do private cloud because I want to be more agile and because I want to be much more efficient at IT operations”.
Um. Private cloud will most certainly help you with the first objective – it will stand up development, test and production environments (i.e. server/storage/network and middleware and dev, test and production applications) much more quickly. And it will “cut IT out the loop” allowing users to have their requests actioned without humans holding up the process.

"What is IT infrastructure?", they asked. I said, "it's like the
power or water or sewage".
