| April 1, 2019

Administrators prepared with best practices that emphasize planning, transparency and flexibility can navigate the immense complexity of virtualization infrastructure design with ease. Admins don't always get the chance to design virtualization infrastructure from the ground up. Rather than maintain good enough policies, admins should take a step back and return to virtualization infrastructure design principles that can frame design decisions big and small. An IT infrastructure plan should form the basis of all management and maintenance decisions. Admins should regularly review and renew this plan to evaluate the practicality of integrating new technologies. Products and paradigms that initially lacked support, integrations or cost-effective price points might be more practical now.

Protecting Healthcare Data and Infrastructure

Article | April 2, 2020

The healthcare industry is increasingly targeted by cybercriminals. As digital transformation accelerates and more providers move their internal systems to the cloud, deploy IoT medical devices and host medical records online, they become even more vulnerable. Over the past four years, nearly 1,500 healthcare companies have been hit with ransomware attacks, and the threat is unlikely to go away. Healthcare data is just too valuable a commodity on the black market for cybercriminals to pass up. In 2019, health organizations continued to get hit with data breaches and ransomware attacks, costing the sector an estimated $4 billion.

To cloud or not to cloud . . . that shouldn’t be the question

Article | February 24, 2020

In my discussions with clients about their journey to cloud, it’s becoming evident that many of them are viewing cloud as a goal, instead of looking at cloud deployments as a capability. In some cases, line-of-business owners are under corporate pressures to “adopt” a cloud-first strategy. A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by IBM, “The Key To Enterprise Hybrid Multicloud Strategy”[1] suggests that “75% [of 350 surveyed global decision makers] have received pushback while advocating for strategies outside of cloud environments.” The result of this, unfortunately, is the lack of continued investment on their on-premises (“on-prem”) environments. From my experience, this type of deployment focus may not yield the expected results. We shouldn’t think about problem solving as “To cloud or not to cloud?” Instead, we should ask ourselves, “What is the problem I’m trying to solve?” and “Are cloud deployments (public or private) going to optimize my solution?”
