23 Apr 2017 Are Chromebooks Responsible For PC Market Growth? [62525]
The Verge, April 12th 2017

"Microsoft might have more reason to be scared of Chromebooks these days," notes Tom Warren in The Verge. " While the software giant was spooked by Google's low-cost laptops three years ago, they've mostly only been selling well to schools. That appears to have changed over the past year. Chromebooks outsold Macs for the first time in the US last year, and now they appear to be contributing to overall PC market growth.

IDC claims the PC market is 'up slightly,' recording its first growth in five years. It's a tiny growth of just 0.6 percent, but it's a flattening of the market that Microsoft and its PC maker partners have been looking for after years of decline.

23 Apr 2017 How To Eliminate Enterprise Shadow IT [62517]

Either way, I believe these statistics are an understatement of the shadow IT ecosystem - spending on IT that doesn't go through the sanctioned enterprise IT shared service function. It's a big issue, and increasingly complicated. Historically, the increase in complexities, the need for greater security or the need to operate at enterprise-wide scale drove shadow IT out of departments and into the administration of the IT group. That's no longer the case; thanks to SaaS and cloud products/services, shadow IT can now operate securely at scale. So how can a CIO address the risks and expense of shadow IT? ..."

Data Center Knowledge, April 11th 2017

Chris Burt writes in Data Center Knowledge, "Worldwide IT spending will increase by 1.4 percent from last year, reaching $3.5 trillion in 2017, according to projections released Monday by Gartner. The growth rate was projected to be 2.7 percent in the previous quarterly forecast, but was hit by the rising U.S. dollar.

'The strong U.S. dollar has cut $67 billion out of our 2017 IT spending forecast,' said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner. 'We expect these currency headwinds to be a drag on earnings of U.S.-based multinational IT vendors through 2017.'..."

The answers will paint a picture of whether this candidate understands cloud security

"Market researchers have been saying for a while now that organizations are having trouble finding, hiring, and retaining experienced IT security professionals with the necessary cybersecurity skills. The rise of cloud computing creates an additional hurdle to building a modern security team.

Cloud computing brings a unique set of information security challenges along with a shift in security strategy.
