When you wish upon a cloud: 3 cloud hopes for 2015

Grazed from InfoWorld. Author: David Linthicum.

It’s that time of year again, as PR people reach out to tell me about their client’s 2015 cloud computing predictions. Are you sitting down? Most revolve around whatever technology they sell. Shocker, right? I figured I would take a different approach. Here are three cloud computing predictions for 2015 that have no chance of coming true, though they should.

1. Enterprises finally get a good grasp on cloud computing security

Everyone is interested in security, but they all figure it doesn't really work in the cloud -- yet no one in enterprise IT can tell me why. The fact of the matter is that most enterprise IT folks don’t have a good understanding of what it means to build a secure cloud, so they default to the “cloud computing is unsecure” reaction...

7 Things about Cloud Computing Your Boss Wants to Know

Grazed from OutboxSystems. Author: Editorial Staff.

There’s a big transition happening in the way companies manage their data. Many are jumping on the cloud computing bandwagon and, if it’s not already, your company could be next. Here are seven things about cloud computing you should know.

1. It’s Cost-Effective

The biggest cost cutter has to do with the servers housing your company’s data. Instead of having to store and maintain clunky computer servers in your company’s office, your business gets to use programs that have servers elsewhere. This also means not having to pay for a full IT department to come fix bugs and install software on each computer...

Grazed from Enterprise Innovation. Author: Mark Micallef.

People across Asia Pacific are working in new ways, at varying times and from different locations. They can work from home or semi-permanent locations including project sites, customer event sites or even on-the-go. The era of connectivity and technological speed has improved internal and external collaboration while enhancing employee engagement within and between organizations that transcends geographies.

Companies across the region, excluding Japan, have been readily increasing their investments on mobility adoption. On average, nearly three-quarters of these companies have implemented some kind of mobility initiatives in their organizations. With companies and government departments embracing hybrid cloud models and making core business applications accessible on smartphones and tablets, while vendors ramp up mobility products and services, the region’s workforce is becoming increasingly mobile...

Cloud Computing: CRM Failure - The Dirty Secret That's Holding You Back

Grazed from Linkedin. Author: Tony Hughes.

In my last corporate role, I ran the Australian region for one of world’s biggest CRM software companies. It was my final role in a twenty-five year career working in the technology sector. Everywhere I worked I was always a ‘true believer’ in what I was selling – you have to be, to be successful. But now, with two years under my belt on the outside of the corporate world as a management consultant, I’ve got a different perspective.

I’m seeing a common theme working with clients … CRM is a dirty word. That’s because CRM failure rates are high – as bad, if not worse, than that of ERP back in the Y2K stampede. It’s also because sales people tend not to embrace the technology (regarding it as an overhead that doesn’t directly help them sell) and management doesn’t trust the reports it generates...

Roundup Of Cloud Computing And Enterprise Software Predictions For 2015

Grazed from Forbes. Author: Louis Columbus.

Whenever this time of the year arrives with its proliferation of predictions, William Gibson’s quote “the future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed” comes to mind. The best predictions provide a glimpse into the future while also providing mile markers to measure the journey. Those are the most fascinating of all because they take a firm stand on where, how and why a given area is scaling and at what pace. Instead of adding to the many cloud computing and enterprise software predictions being made for 2015, I’m providing a listing of those that are the most interesting and thought-provoking. They are listed below:
