12 Apr 2017 Platform As A Service (PaaS) [62365]
Datamation, April 12th 2017

By enabling cloud-based web development, PaaS helps businesses develop software faster and more efficiently

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud-based web development platform that shifts computing infrastructure and development tools from the customer data center to the PaaS cloud provider. Some PaaS environments run on a business's private cloud, but most PaaS offerings run from a cloud computing vendor who provides the infrastructure and the full development toolset.

PaaS if one of three primary cloud computing domains: Platform as a Service (PaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)..."

11 Apr 2017 How To Eliminate Enterprise Shadow IT [62351]
CIO, April 11th 2017

Don't try to find shadow IT and govern it; instead, out-compete it with DevOps

"Gartner studies have found that shadow IT is 30 to 40 percent of IT spending in large enterprises, and our research at Everest Group finds it comprises 50 percent or more. 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? ..."

09 Apr 2017 Cloud Computing Security [62081]
Datamation, March 29th 2017

Christine Taylor writes in Datamation, "Cloud computing security is a critical topic because most businesses use the cloud in some shape, form, or fashion. There are lots of different ways that they use the cloud: cloud computing with SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS; cloud storage with content repositories and archival; DR spin-up; file sharing and gateways for the far-flung enterprise.

Yet with all this activity, there is still a 500-pound gorilla in the room: cloud computing security. Backers proclaim that security is one of the cloud's strongest features, while detractors say it's riddled with vulnerabilities.

Which is the truth of these claims about cloud security? In time-honored fashion of IT issues, it depends..."

Datamation, April 5th 2017

What is a cloud service and when should organizations use them? Learn more about the main types of cloud services, including SaaS, IaaS and PaaS

"The past decade has witnessed a dramatic change in the way organizations handle their computing needs. In the 1990s and early 2000s, most enterprises ran their applications on servers that they owned and maintained in their own data centers. But today, cloud computing has come to the forefront.

In fact, the RightScale 2017 Cloud Computing Survey found that 95 percent of the organizations surveyed were using at least one cloud, and 85 percent were using multiple clouds. The average enterprise now runs the majority of its workloads in the cloud: 32 percent of them in the public cloud and 43 percent in a private cloud..."
