Does Virtual Reality Create New Security Threats?

Doctor Chaos

For many years, virtual reality was something from science fiction movies. It was something that might be possible in the future, but it has already arrived. The pace of technology has moved so quickly in the past few years that there are many things that for a while were just in our imaginations.

4 hidden cloud computing costs that will get you fired

David Linthicum

John just finished the first wave on cloud workload migrations for his company. With a solid 500 applications and related data sets migrated to a public cloud, he now has a good understanding of what the costs are after these applications have moved into production. However, where John had budgeted $1 million a month for ops costs, all in, the company is now getting dinged for $1.25 million. Where does that $250,000 go each month?

An Adult Conversation About Estimates

VPN for Hacking: Which one is the Best?

Doctor Chaos

If you’re not using a VPN in 2018, you might as well stop using public WiFi. In the age of hackers and government censorships, your Internet connection is not safe. Your ISP provider wants to track your data. Some countries won’t allow you to access social media.

Does the cloud still make sense when the economy is good?

David Linthicum

The economy is doing well. Even the Fed is looking to figure out ways to slow things down, so the economic boom does not become overheated and then collapse. How will the good economy affect the adoption of cloud computing? Most people answer quickly that it’s good for cloud. But that’s not always the case. Some technologies are more valuable the worse the economic climate. InfoWorld explains: What is cloud-native? The modern way to develop software. | Get started: Azure cloud migration guide.

The Six Principles of Persuasion

Speaker: Michael Carducci, CTO, Mago:Tech

As senior tech leaders, we often fall prey to thinking that a “good idea” and logical case is sufficient to get the desired response and result. We might be trying to get our CEO on-board with investment in a new technology or a rearchitecture effort, or we might want culture or process changes by our team. Our “good idea” is simply the beginning. An idea must be communicated; a case must be made; and ultimately other people must be persuaded to get onboard. Michael Carducci brings a fascinating background to this webinar. He’s a technologist and regularly works to help senior leaders improve their results. He’s also a professional mentalist and has been a student of psychology, human behavior and the principles of influence for nearly two decades.
