Transformation Infrastructure

By pwsadmin | September 26, 2020

Hybrid IT enables a composable infrastructure which describes a framework whose physical compute, storage, and network fabric resources are treated as services. Resources are logically pooled so that administrators need to physically configure hardware to support a specific software application, which describes the function of a composable architecture. This type of transformative infrastructure is foundational…

By Kevin L. Jackson The complexities of citywide traffic are pushing the limits of existing transportation management systems. Outdated infrastructure is based on proprietary, single-purpose subsystems, making it costly to acquire, operate, and maintain. And current roadways are simply not prepared for the future of autonomous vehicles. Enter the SPaT Challenge, an initiative encouraging cities and…

Edge computing provides compute, storage, and networking resources close to devices generating traffic. Its benefits are based on an ability to provide new services capable of meeting stringent operational requirements by minimizing both data latency and the need for bandwidth. Based on Google trend data, searches for the term has also grown substantially over the…

The ThinkShield Story Part 1: The Challenge

By G C Network | October 24, 2019

The cybersecurity challenge seems to be growing daily. Threats are becoming more sophisticated, and attacks are becoming more destructive while the corporate world’s response seems to resemble a deer in headlights. Recent examples of this dangerous state of affairs include[1]: A data breach of a US Customs and Border Protection surveillance contractor that led to…

Recently, I had the privilege of reviewing an advance copy of Executive’s Guide to Cloud Computing by Eric Marks and Bob Lozano. Available now for pre-order on Amazon, this guide is a crystal ball into the future of business. Not a technical treatise, this excellent book is an insightful description of how cloud computing can quickly sharpen the focus of information technology and line executives onto the delivery of real value. Using clear prose, Eric and Bob explain how cloud computing elevates IT from it’s traditional support role into a new and prominent business position.

In Chapter 4: Strategic Implications of Cloud Computing, the reader will learn why the cloud will soon become a mainstream component of every chief information officer’s toolkit. By skilfully blending business environment context and business model evolution, the authors build a strong case for the inevitability of cloud computing. For me, the key takeaway was Chapter 5: Cloud Computing Adoption Lifecycle, within which an effective and efficient methodology for adopting cloud computing was presented.

I commend Eric and Bob for producing what will soon become a leading industry reference. If you’re serious about leveraging cloud computing for the business value it provides, I urge you to place your advance order today.

    Science and technology never stops to transform into higher ends imaginable. The invention of this cloud computing system clearly shows that human imagination goes beyond expectations and I realized its worth during my stay in Houston. Computer support services made my pile of workloads decrease in a snap. As a freshman in the IT world, I find it thrilling to be in and actually touch and have my presence in those things that was just shown in our classrooms. Houston computer tech supports large companies and small businesses to run smoothly and to run with transparency within the business and to its clients and potential clients.
