As cloud continues to shape the technology landscape and service delivery paradigm, companies need to re-evaluate all aspects of their service delivery model—from processes, controls and tools to governance, skills and culture.

Faster time-to-market, reduced capital outlay, and the ability to rapidly scale are among the promised benefits of cloud. However, cloud also introduces new complexities and dependencies into the IT management landscape that must be addressed to enable said benefits.

Big Data is an oil of modern times; it fuels our economy and lubricates most interactions we have with the world. It is at work every time an airline allocates you a seat, whenever you navigate traffic to a meeting, and it has a deep involvement with what products are stocked by your local supermarket.
The effects, benefits, and changes progressed by Big Data are here now, they are simply unavoidable; Big Data is not just your future it is already our present. Most sound decisions are evidence-based, and leveraging Big Data to inform your actions should be a priority.
