    Looking back at DMEA_1

  • Seven Ways to Secure Your Cloud Data

    Seven Ways to Secure Your Cloud Data_blog

    There are three misconceptions about the cloud. First, that it is secure by default; second, that you can migrate to it yourself; and third, that it’s water vapor.

    Cloud in itself, as an infrastructure, is very secure. If Google, Microsoft and Linux experts cannot be trusted to do a good job then all hope is lost. They can be trusted, which is why cloud is secure. The best analogy to illustrate the concept is a country’s security. Borders are secured, monitored and patrolled – yet you still have to lock your car and home inside that secure country. The same goes for the cloud: you still need passwords, encryption, a firewall, etc.

    How Technologies Transform the Insurance Industry

    I attended two insurance conferences in London this month in order to gain insight into what is driving the changes in their business. Insurance companies are all looking at technology as a way to improve the efficiency of their operations, but they all know that technology alone will not make a sufficient impact. Data is an organization’s biggest asset and the ability to use technology to harness that data and gain insights to better serve customer needs is also the key to successfully moving a business forward.

    As legalized sports betting expands throughout the United States, the value of game data is growing exponentially. From managers and teams to sportsbooks and media agencies, virtually everyone in the industry now relies on sports data to prosper.
