They’re both wrong. Both of these myths are dangerous, and so they need to die. [ The cloud storage security gap—and how to close it. Stay up on the cloud with InfoWorld’s Cloud Computing Report newsletter. ]. Kill this myth: If my data is in a pubic cloud, it’s inherently unsafe.

Why Open Source Is Really Disrupting Enterprise Software

Forrester IT

I had an epiphany today about a major reason open source is disrupting enterprise software. This is perhaps one of those things that you have heard so much, you've gone numb to it.
