Technology is more than just networking and Juniper experts share their views on all the trends affecting IT

As mega trends such as Consumerization of IT and Bring Your Own Device fuel the demand for cloud services, we see an increasing number of enterprise customers for whom the ‘center of gravity’ of the service – the point that is equidistant to all applications and service hosts, is beginning to fall outside of the enterprise network.

Bringing Data Center Security out of the Shadows

A slightly schizophrenic start to this blog but before I go on to explain my reasoning behind the title, I wanted to make clear that in my view the Consumerisation of IT and in particular the phenomenon of ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) will both have a positive impact on businesses and IT departments if proactively embraced.   Those benefits will accrue from progressive HR policies that recognise the growing importance of social media tools both in productivity terms (yes, social media tools can and will have a positive impact on employee productivity) combined with attracting and keeping the next generation of top talent from the so called ‘Generation Y’  genre.

Clean Clouds: looking beyond the data centre

The ‘prosumer1’– a social/business individual - now expects to access both personal and business applications with equal ease and from the same, often privately owned, device. The so-called ‘Bring Your Own Device6 (BOYD) conundrum’.

 

This combination of increased mobility of the user, non-managed devices and the virtualised/multi-tenant data centre, leads to a number of security challenges not previously experienced by the enterprise or service provider.
