The role of the traditional on-premises data center has been changing for years, as enterprise workloads have made an exodus to the cloud, and more recently to the edge of the network, in pursuit of benefits including cost savings, better performance and greater flexibility. According to analyst firm Gartner, 10 percent of enterprises will have shut down their traditional data center by the end of 2018 -- a figure that's expected to rise to 80 percent by 2025. Cisco, meanwhile, predicts that by 2021, 94 percent of workloads and compute instances will be processed by cloud data centers, with just six percent processed by traditional data centers.Still, for the next few years at least, there will be plenty of enterprise data centers housing workloads that, for whatever reason (technical, economic, security or compliance, for example), have not migrated to the cloud.

CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and other IT executives and high-level managers straddle two worlds: technology and business. Virtually all of these IT leaders have a deep background in areas such as management information systems (MIS), computer information systems (CIS) and project management. Most IT chiefs also have at least a bachelor's degree in a tech field, although some rise through the ranks clutching nothing more than a high school diploma and a fistful of certifications.Reporting directly to the CEO or another C-level executive, IT leaders are typically responsible for leading a highly trained staff and supervising critical projects and assets. Yet the days when an IT boss could blithely ignore business issues to focus on optimizing IT technologies and services are rapidly fading into history. In fact, IT leaders who don't fully understand and support their enterprise's business goals generally find themselves looking for a new job.To gain a better understanding of how the business … [Read more...] about 7 ways an MBA will advance your IT career — and 5 ways it won’t

Tim Cook and the board of directors have made a bad move that will haunt APPLE and its users in the long run-IF they plan to store data here from devices that also are used in other countries like the US ( cloud center). Hacking by the Chinese government is inevitable no matter what Apple thinks. And for crying out loud why does an American company that could supply American jobs always seem … [Read more...] about Comments for : Apple is building a data center in China to meet new government requirements
