We are closer than ever to the long-sought vision of the "lights-out" data center, in which applications are automatically deployed and provisioned, data is securely stored in its proper places, and workloads are balanced without muss or fuss. Almost paradoxically, enterprises need more people than ever to assure increasingly sophisticated services are delivered, and align with the needs of the business.
In this Internet age our personal data is stored on multiple servers, and is constantly being shifted around across platforms. Many of us do not realize how our data is being handled, and whether our personal information is stored securely. What can be done to ensure large organizations don’t mishandle our confidential information?

A study by Toluna, a tech company operating in the market research space, looked at the attitudes of employees towards virtual work. The results point to a workforce eager to get back into the office. In fact,19 percent of those surveyed have already returned to the workplace, with one-third thinking they will this summer.

I was recently in the market for a new vehicle, and I was considering making the switch from a hybrid to a full-on electric car. I read a couple of articles from car authorities or known car bloggers who were given the opportunity to test drive an electric vehicle or two as part of their professional engagements.

I read the owners forums and paid particular attention to what owners with similar family and commutes to mine said about their daily life was like driving the cars. What I actually never thought to do was seek the advice of someone regarded as an expert in cars, but who had never driven one let alone an electric one.
