Cloud vs Hosting: What is Driving Your Deployment Decisions?
Reanna Gutierrez  |  May 17, 2016
Before the cloud, choosing where to deploy an application was a straightforward process. You made sure the necessary hardware was available in your on premises data center, allocated storage space, and then installed and booted up the application. Today's choices are much more complex. Organizations can choose to deploy to public, private or hybrid clouds through an on premises, fully hosted or colocated data center – or some combination of them all. The drivers that lead organizations to choose the best model are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, while keeping in mind the overall business strategy.

The Risks of Offshore IT Outsourcing – “Keep Your Friends Close and Your Data Closer”
OneNeck IT Solutions  |  May 03, 2016
The offshoring phenomenon has been with us for some time now. The Internet has created a global network infrastructure, making it possible for routine tasks and support processes to be migrated overseas, mostly to reduce operating costs. However, more businesses are finding that offshoring isn’t always as cost-effective and safe as it might seem. In customer service, for example, many companies are pulling their call centers back to North America due to training and service problems with overseas call centers. Considering your data is the lifeblood of your business, is outsourcing the right move?
