Data drives enterprise organization
If it is unavailable, then the entire business feels the impact, making data protection and recovery critical to the business. The amount of data being stored is growing at an exponential rate, all the while organizations need to ensure that they manage, protect and provide data availability 24 hrs a day 7 days a week. To become more cost effective, secure and agile, organizations are moving away from the classic on-premises infrastructure and are moving toward a cloud-based environment.

The evolution of the traditional corporate environment into a global web of dynamic digital workspaces requires new ways to share information and ideas. The majority of workers contributing to this digital transformation are tech savvy employees who rely on a combination of personal devices, mobile apps, and cloud technologies to do their jobs effectively anytime and anywhere. However, as more and more of these mobile tools and technologies flood the market and the workplace, organizations must remain focused on protecting sensitive data and intellectual property.
There’s a strong need for product marketing specialization within the freelance gigs marketplace. With the gig industry for services exploding, one of the best new opportunities is going to be in product marketing. Companies are having a very hard time launching products in the new digital age. Amazon was the avenue of choice until it became a place for unlimited fake reviews. Today’s business leaders know that competing on the Amazon platform means committing to joining in the Jeff Bezos illegal fake review fraud. So that opens up other options including: video, social media, influencers, websites, and online publishers of articles and news. However, according to current surveys, only 1% of gig workers uses these alternative platforms, so those who gain a significant foothold could do very well financially.
Business IT is being dragged down by the weight of the ‘old’. Whether it is outdated assumptions, virtualization platforms designed for consolidation not agility, or simply neophobia, this isn’t just disruption, it’s a death-grip. Losing the weight requires fundamental change, and here’s why:
Flexible and agile is the ‘new normal’
Enterprise success today relies on speed, agility, security and availability, while always keeping costs under tight control.
There have been dynamic changes in the modern workforce. The traditional 9-to-5 job where you work for the same company all your life (with very little change in your work day) is dying. The business world is evolving faster every year, and the ants are flourishing while the dinosaurs are becoming extinct. Not only do workers need to adjust in this freelance gig economy, but companies also need to adjust there corporate structures.

IBM closed the Redhat $34 billion dollar buyout about one month ago. Now comes the hard work for the everyday companies that utilize Redhat’s software. Redhat is not only the fastest growing server software, but the largest open source company in the world (they build and support open source products from open source projects). Redhat has millions of computers running on their source code. The big question is can they migrate IBM hardware and software without giving up their open sources leadership? Plus, can Redhat adapt to IBM’s culture and bureaucracies without giving up key personnel?

In today’s threat landscape, small businesses are uniquely vulnerable to cybersecurity threats. Unlike larger enterprises, they face resource constraints for the complex tasks of monitoring, identifying and remediating an increasing variety of risks— from strong encryption ransomware and malware to distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and crypto mining threats. And while they may have a smaller attack surface, small businesses are just as vulnerable as a major enterprise.
Currently, governments, businesses and corporations depend on centralization when it comes to technology solutions. The centralized approach to manage the digital solution is not wrong, but blockchain technology can offer a way to create an accountable and transparent system. Decentralization is aimed at creating a trustless and fair ecosystem across different industries.
Today’s storage technologies are in the midst of a disruptive evolution and the types of storage that businesses are using — and even the ways that they’re using it — is radically different from the past. Globalization and the consumerization of IT have resulted in the need for an Always-On™ business model with higher requirements for performance and Availability than ever before. Many businesses now require 24.7.365 Availability. Plus, today’s businesses need to deal with massive storage growth.
Today’s IT leaders are at a crossroads. Behind them, there’s a long legacy of hardware and software deployment decisions that have served the business well for years. But new business requirements and application development methods have begun to test the status quo, and as they seek to modernize, they will face several difficult decisions. IT leaders can either commit to the cloud, go all in with on-premises infrastructure or evaluate something entirely new.
The best paying gigs often require a highly specialized field of expertise in a robust growth industry. A high skill level requirement often reduces the number of direct competitors. The high level of robust growth means lots of job opportunities. Thus through supply and demand (remember economics 101 and the laws of the invisible hand by Adam Smith?) these factors work together to create an outstanding future until the number of high level professionals grows to meet demand, or the market growth slows down significantly, to a level that allows professional support to keep up. If your new in the computer field and at the beginning a new freelance gig career these to not only look good today, but the long tern position of these industries look to be longer than most carriers last.
The current state of networking
Even as underlying technologies have evolved, network management has remained largely the same for decades. Networks are typically built, operated, and maintained manually.

These procedures are largely directed at implementing and maintaining the network policies defined by business processes.

Ransomware is a top of mind threat for industries of all sizes, and is constantly being evolved and adapted by technically sophisticated and financially motivated attackers. To illustrate the importance of this issue in business terms, Aberdeen’s simple analysis quantifies how the faster, more scalable time-to-recover provided by a cloud-based backup and restore capability reduces the impact of ransomware by about 90%,
Breaking Down the Relentless Risk of Ransomware
Although ransomware has been a weapon in the cybercriminal’s arsenal since as early as 1989, it has more recently become a top of mind threat for organizations of all sizes in the wake of publicity that followed massive, worldwide ransomware attacks such as Petya (2016), WannaCry (2017), and NotPetya (2017).
1. Gather input and define your need
A good place to begin is by gathering input from leaders across your entire organization. By exploring cloud needs beyond IT, you’ll have a greater understanding of how your cloud technology will be used and how to address the greatest number of demands, so you can get the greatest value from your investment. Benefits like cost reduction, business agility, and better data-driven decision-making benefit the whole organization—not just the IT department. It therefore stands to reason that the organization as a whole should be involved in the decision-making process.

The Reality of Disaster Recovery (DR)

We’ll get around to it next budget cycle.” The reality is that DR is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. IT has become a fundamental piece of every business and it is critical to be always available for your internal and external users.

Cyber thieves are increasingly using this form of attack to target individuals, corporate entities and public sector organizations alike by holding your system or files for ransom. Unlike other forms of cyber theft that often involve stolen financial or healthcare information, ransomware cuts out the middleman. In cases where an attacker steals health or financial documents, they must sell them on to third parties to make money. As far as ransomware is concerned, the money comes directly from the victim.

A gig is a temporary and flexible job, on location or through the internet, hired as an independent contractor (often known as freelancers) for people or companies looking for specialized services instead of hiring full-time employees.
