Cloud is not new at this point,” said Beth Halloran, deputy CIO at the General Services Administration, at Cloudera’s recent Data Cloud Summit.You can’t just say, ‘It’s going to save us money by going into the cloud,” she continued. “You have to understand what level of cloud is going to save you money, and infrastructure and services is not it.

AWS tags US$235 million to expand its cloud infrastructure in Latin America

Article | February 10, 2020

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is raising its stake on cloud computing infrastructure in Latin America. Proof of this is that the IT company will use R$1 billion (around US$235 million) to expand its data center in Sao Paulo. These millions will be used for its Data Processing Center located in that part of Brazil. In addition, a portion of these US$235 million will also be used to increase the services it offers to both public and private parties.The move gives reason to suggest that AWS is upping the ante in the future of startups and tech in the region that rely on cloud services to develop their own products.It launched its cloud center in Brazil in 2011 but it’ll be getting some beefing up thanks to these funds. Moreover, AWS has two Edge networks in São Paulo and two in Rio de Janeiro. As well as one in each of the following cities: Bogotá (Colombia), Buenos Aires (Argentina), and Santiago (Chile).The objective of all of this is to be the region’s prime provider of cloud infrastructure and beat out its competition AKA, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft’s Azure.

The cloud and rising to the challenge

Article | April 16, 2020

In a very short space of time, the coronavirus outbreak has completely transformed how organisations across all sectors operate. With lockdown restrictions rolling out across the globe, those organisations have moved quickly to instruct their staff to work from home in a bid to halt the spread of the Covid-19 infection.The nature of the IT industry will mean many of its businesses and employees will have remote working experience, but that isn’t the same across the board. According to March 2020 research from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), only 30% of UK employees ever worked from home during 2019. For many, the change has been sharp and abrupt, and brought with it significant challenges for both the workforce and the IT infrastructure required to support it.Due to the rapidly unfolding pace of the Covid-19 pandemic, CIOs have had little time to test the robustness of their business continuity strategy.
