Life Sciences Rely on Cloud Computing Platforms

As cloud computing continues attracting the attention of many industries and disciplines, life sciences appear to be taking the right strides towards the use of cloud computing platforms. The greatest benefit of this technology in this discipline is its scalability, innovation, and flexibility. The cloud-based technologies give life sciences the capability to access more resources and processing scale. With the cloud, datasets can be anonymized and shared with ease. This will be a great enabler of the new strategies on artificial intelligence, which include drug discovery. However, some experts have warned that the cloud will not automatically create benefits, reduce costs, or enhance security, that is one of the requirements in any discipline. It is upon each organization or user to determine the processes that can be removed through a transition to the cloud and the new capabilities that can be accessed through the cloud platforms.


Working from Home is Driving Increased Cloud Activity

As COVID-19 continues tearing different industries apart and changing norms, the future of work is now more clear than before working from home. What appeared once as distant prospects have turned into reality as businesses try to find new means of survival. Working from home is one of the areas that has been largely adopted courtesy of this pandemic. With many countries trying to minimize human interaction by introducing lockdown and social distancing measures, many employees are now forced to work from home as companies close their business premises amid the coronavirus pandemic. Companies are now launching different remote working initiatives that will see them continue being productive even as they keep themselves away from infections.


Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) is Tackling Cloud Security

Cloud computing has continued to grow, and many organizations have adopted it as the right technology to address storage issues in the age of big data. However, as things shape up, the number of providers has also grown significantly and so have the challenges associated with infrastructure management and security. As services offered by the cloud such as IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, and RaaS keep increasing, the security posture must be addressed. According to a report by Gartner, 95% of cloud security issues in 2020 will be due to improper configuration. A single failure to configure the system in the right manner can expose thousands of systems and information to massive breaches, and many systems and users will be affected as a result.


Cloud-Based Voting Systems for More Secure Elections

Fair elections are an essential activity in democratic nations. They are at the heart of the democratic process and are what sets “free” societies apart from autocracies, monarchies, and dictatorships. Ensuring the viability and accuracy of elections has been a challenge for countries and municipalities throughout history. New methods of developing voting systems that make use of the security and flexibility of cloud computing may help alleviate many of the issues that plague what should be a right for all citizens.


Creative Uses of the Cloud by the NFL

The National Football League is arguably the most popular spectator sport in the United States. Its season-ending Super Bowl extravaganza is watched by hundreds of millions of viewers worldwide and is the cause of many unexplained absences from work the following Monday morning. The league has embraced the power of cloud computing in a variety of ways intended to enhance the fan experience as well as help team management and players improve their ability to compete.


Previously Resistant Utilities are Adopting Cloud Operations

Cloud computing is rising fast and is quickly becoming a “new normal” point of departure for modern IT infrastructure. While only a handful of companies have resisted its adoption, many of them have embraced it due to the crucial nature cloud computing plays in the modern IT landscape. However, highly regulated sectors including as healthcare, banking, insurance, and public utilities, most of the organizations in this area have been slow to adopt new technology and embrace change mainly in internal IT infrastructure.


How is Edge Computing Different From Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is a concept whose origins can be found in the 1960s as interest grew for computers that could be used by multiple users simultaneously. From its humble beginnings, it gained popularity throughout the late 20th Century as organizations saw the potential it held for delivering software and services to a remote user community. 


Companies Need to Plan for Changes in How They Build Software Solutions in a Cloud-Centric World

As companies begin embracing cloud computing, new hardware and software resources to accommodate this new trend are needed. This means that there must be a massive paradigm shift in the way different IT resources are created, delivered to the customer, and consumed altogether. These technologies serve as a foundation of growth and innovation in the world’s IT landscape. Despite being here for decades now, cloud computing as a solution is still confusing many companies mainly due to new terms and the requirements that are necessary to implement. The same can be said about companies that offer cloud-related services. They are confused as well on the software solutions that are going to thrive in the market in the coming days and how they should plan for the changes.  


Industrial Product Design is Migrating to the Cloud

Businesses share many dreams, and key among them being the ability to offer goods and services to their customers at affordable prices at little cost. This is exactly the reason why they always seek technologies that will increase speed and enhance accuracy and scale. These are the leading benefits that manufacturing companies cite when asked their reason for migrating their applications and workloads to the cloud.


Automakers Are Accelerating With Cloud Providers For IoT

As companies transition to the cloud, those that require Internet of Things (IoT) are turning to the major cloud providers AWS, Google and Microsoft. The automotive industry has traditionally been slower to adapt to new technologies for various reasons. Some of the biggest reasons have been scale, regulations and costs. However, the automotive industry as a whole is well suited to the architecture of the public cloud. The strength of the major public cloud providers is being able to collect and process data from various sources.
