Technology advances more rapidly today than ever before. We are hearing more and more tech companies integrating artificial intelligence and virtual or augmented reality into their platforms and products. The exponential growth in cloud computing is drives demand for flexible or “pay as you go” consumption models. As technology becomes more advanced and user-friendly it is becoming integrated into every aspect of our lives. As we integrate technology more and more into our business, there is an increased need for cybersecurity and data availability. But what does this all mean for the IT industry and the skill sets our IT teams will need as we look into the future of IT?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the leading cloud infrastructure platform on the market today. While AWS offers platform services aimed at developers, at its core it offers rich cloud-based infrastructure services. AWS provides everything from public DNS, directory, and database services, to monitoring and alerting services. Each of these services is designed to reduce costs and complexity for the enterprise.
When most people hear the word “meeting” they think “boring, time consuming, and often pointless”. It is important that if you are going to pull a team out of their daily tasks to meet with each other, the meeting is fruitful and efficient. As a project manager, it is our job to lead meetings that clearly relay project status and allow a forum for collaboration that keeps the project moving forward. Below are five tips for conducting effective team meetings:
In this Fireside Chat, CEO - Sean Barr, sits down with Senior Solutions Architect - CCIE #29940 -Chris Marshall, to discuss cloud telemetry and analytics for your SaaS and SD-WAN. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this Fireside Chat.

Healthcare is one of the most rapidly changing industries. It’s a constant challenge for healthcare organizations to keep up with changing regulations, complex reimbursement rules, ongoing revenue challenges, and evolving security threats.

It’s officially spring and for a lot of us that means spring cleaning – the attic, garage, basement, or just all those papers off the desk in the office.

Below is a list of our top 8 best practices for cleaning up your network and devices.

Upgrading Cisco software (IOS, IOS-XE, ASA code, etc.) can be a little daunting sometimes. For the most part, installations are straight forward, but there is usually a fair amount at stake. Ideally, your environment should be designed with high-availability in mind, allowing you to perform maintenance (and endure unplanned outages) without business impact. But that isn’t always financially possible, especially for remote sites and smaller branch offices. This makes things especially difficult for the engineers tasked with performing this maintenance remotely. Losing access to a device and watching your continuous ping not receive replies for 5, 10, 15 minutes or even longer sometimes is always taxing! That said, they almost always come back, usually just shortly after real panic starts to set in. While we can’t be 100% sure everything is going to work every time (we didn’t write the code or design the hardware), if we do our due diligence we can increase our chances of success.
