Las personas son parte crucial de la transformación digital

Las empresas están buscando trabajadores con habilidades y experiencia en la economía digital. Desarrolladores, expertos en ciberseguridad, analistas de datos y expertos en IT son perfiles escasos, lo que obliga a las organizaciones a pagar un alto precio por nuevo talento, e invertir en mejorar la calificación de los empleados actuales, o en ambas cosas […]

The people part of digital transformation is crucial

Enterprises are struggling to find workers with the skills and experience to help them succeed in the digital economy. Developers, cybersecurity professionals, data analysts, and more tech-oriented workers are in short supply, forcing organizations to pay top dollar for fresh talent, invest in upskilling current employees, or both. All of which makes for a demand-driven […]

The virtuous circle of cloud adoption

It just turned 2019 and people are still saying the cloud is “just someone else’s computers.” Excuse me, I lost sight of my keyboard because my eyes were rolling too hard.

clouds-above-highway

There’s no question we’re moving our applications to the cloud. We started with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) for our data, and now most of us are considering  Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for our programs. The question is, how will we move our programs to PaaS? You have three main choices: Lift-and-shift, refactor, or containers. With life-and-shift, you simply port your […]

It’s great asking Alexa or Google Home or Cortana about the weather forecast for Seattle (rain again!), or what “proprioception” means, or who the Washington Nationals are playing tonight.

But even as Microsoft embraced Linux and became an avid open-source follower, it was never a leader. That’s changing.
