With the advent of the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS), shadow IT is gaining ever more ground within today’s companies. Should your IT department regard this rising new trend as a threat, at the risk of losing credibility with their colleagues and maybe even some customers? Or does it offer them an opportunity to better manage their IT infrastructure and provide better IT services to end users?
Cybersecurity isn’t merely the concern of your IT department: it is everyone's business. Not only does it concern all levels of your decision-making, up to the highest level, it also concerns each and everyone of your employees. Not to mention your external partners, since your company is increasingly opening up to the outside world.
While the cloud clearly remains one of the cornerstones of your company's IT flexibility, a new style of architecture is now increasingly needed: microservices. It promises greater ease of development and deployment, better scalability, easier maintenance and more flexibility in the way you engage with technology.
Even when the cloud has caused much ink to flow, it seems that most organizations prefer hybrid cloud, combining private and public cloud, to enjoy the best of both worlds. Transparency and portability remain the big challenges. Hence the need to call on the services of a professional provider to make the right choice.
These days, information must be available and accessible everywhere, at any time and by any partner of the company, including employees, customers, suppliers, prospects, and more. This requires an infrastructure that is powerful, reliable, and secure, as well as digital processes. Welcome to the virtual IT environment.
Are these diametrically opposed architectures incompatible?
