IT pros agree: Security is better in the cloud

Mar 31 10:00:00 by www.infoworld.com

About 42 percent of IT decision-makers and security managers say they are running security applications in the cloud, according to a survey of about 300 IT security pros from Schneider Electric. Almost half of those surveyed said they are likely or extremely likely to move their security operations to the cloud in a few years.In the survey, 57 percent of respondents believe the cloud is secure. The cloud has the most confidence in on-demand security, and that confidence is highest among IT professionals (78 percent). I’ve stated before that cloud security is better than on-premises security, but it’s nice to see external evidence backing that up. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Apr 13 9:01:00 by dzone.com

What Is Clean Code? This is not a new topic at all, it has been addressed many times in the past but I thought it could be interesting to share my own experience with it. In my case, the experience of crafting software from Uruguay to the US has put to the test many of the things one reads about software development processes and best practices, one of them being the importance of clean coding. The Way of the Code Crafter I had the opportunity to work with many different people in many different projects, and I’ve found that a lot of us (myself included) share a similar behavior at the beginning of our careers. When we go out into the programming world we just want to get a job done as soon as possible. It feels like we all get very anxious at the dawn of our careers. The minute we are told about the first requirement for the product we are building, we are picturing a solution and two seconds later we are on to it. We need to see it working, we connect the bits and pieces with the bare essentials, we hit the ground running, we see it happening in front of us. We did it!

Mar 31 1:39:05 by betanews.com

UK organizations consider cloud skills essential to digital transformation, according to a new report by Microsoft. Entitled "Microsoft Cloud Skills Report: Closing the Cloud Skills Chasm", it says 83 percent of UK’s organizations consider cloud skills "important" or "critical" to digital transformation.

Just two percent of respondents had no plans of going more digital. However, finding the right people with the right skills turned out harder than expected. A third of… [Continue Reading]
