The OpenStack journey to adoption.

The architecture is still at the early stage, in terms of adoption and technological advance. But, a certain infatuation within major companies is real and is on the encouraging curve.
However, the OpenStack architecture still suffers of the complexities associated with its implementation and manageability.
A set of CIO, need, to be convince, when it comes to OpenStack's viability for critical workloads in production environments.

Combating Sophisticated Cyber Attacks in our digital-driven world.

Because of the sophistication of the recent cyberattacks, such as, that one, which targeted Sony Pictures, much among us believe that, security leaders are more and more incompetent. Right or wrong perhaps. 
But, at we remind that, a set of realities and challenges related to the evaluation of the top priorities within the companies, more often, can lead to disasters like what, we observe since a week, at Sony Pictures. 
Security leaders are not outstripped  in the cyber war. Security leaders should join the executive board.
Security leaders who have, as top priorities: regulations, new technologies, and internal threats, have to appropriate the protection of critical assets, focusing investments on intelligence and recruiting top industry talent to augment internal efforts.
Traditional technologies that focus on network intrusion prevention, advanced malware detection and network vulnerability scanning shouldbe combined with data leakage prevention, cloud security and …
