The Great Enabler of Cloud Technology

Most technologies aren’t really “tools,” as many people call them. They’re “enablers.” Let’s take the Internet, for example. The Internet doesn’t do anything by itself. It’s what’s connected to it—what you do with it—that makes it powerful.
In that same way, the cloud is really an enabler. The cloud itself has no value. It’s what you do with the cloud that makes it valuable. As I like to say, “It’s not the tool that matters; it's how you use it.”

Investing in Big Data

The average adult makes 70 conscious decisions a day, or more than 25,000 a year.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
