InnovationInsights, April 30, 2014
A zero-day was recently discovered that allows attackers to exploit flaws in Internet Explorer. This vulnerability is nasty. It affects all modern versions of the browser -- everything from the ancient IE6 through IE11, the current version. Microsoft has not issued a fix yet. Customers can protect themselves by installing the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 4.1 from Microsoft, but it is not a “free lunch.” It may break certain browser plugins.

Software as a Service (SaaS) applications have been growing rapidly ever since the mid-2000s, led primarily by the CRM category, and followed by other departments such as HR, finance, and marketing. In fact, the current buzz in the SaaS industry is all about the “marketing cloud.”

The next cloud revolution cannot simply be yet another departmental SaaS solution that grows in adoption and earns a moniker prefixed by the department’s name and followed by ‘cloud’. To truly be revolutionary, it must usher in cultural shifts in society that change the way we work.

Dave Evans
Cisco’s Chief Futurist

Private cloud products and services allow IT organizations to retain control of company data and technology spending by empowering them to deliver new services as quickly and easily as external cloud providers. Yet, for many businesses, the transition to private cloud is a bumpy one. From skipping up-front total cost of ownership analysis to overlooking the value of existing infrastructure, we’ve seen a common set of issues plague companies trying to implement private cloud solutions and have dubbed them the Seven Deadly Sins of Private Cloud:
