Welcome to my blogosphere! I am hoping to provide some interesting perspectives on storage, records, and the business drivers that affect IT decisions.
We are living in interesting times right now, compressed budgets, regulatory demands, and limited resources (floorspace, power, cooling) are forcing business managers to carefully chart their direction. I say business managers, because we are quickly moving out of the realm of IT management making all the decisions; today IT, finance, legal, facilities, and even import/export groups are involved in decisions about how to deploy new applications and how to protect corporate assets.
We’ll look at historical trends to see how we got where we are, current events that are driving changes, and future trends to see where we need to be going.
Hope you will join in.
