  9. Are You Ready for ‘Cloud First’ Computing?

    “Cloud first.” It’s what many organizations—maybe most—say they want to be these days. Some even are. But for the vast majority, it’s still an aspirational goal more than anything else.

That’s a problem for Adi Ruppin of Ananda Networks, who says that while dis… Read More
