Software as a Service SaaS Implications for the IT Security Workforce

Training Industry

My last blog described the implications of cloud computing going mainstream and its impact on the workforce. Picking up on that theme, Software as a Service (SaaS)-based applications are increasingly the way organizations can quickly and easily leverage new applications. So how does an organization extend its security policies and controls to public clouds and SaaS applications?

Cloud service and deployment models

Janet Clarey

One of my 15 fans asks, “Janet what the heck is cloud computing, when should I consider a cloud service model and when should I not?&# And, to which I responded…let’s try to break that down a bit… First, let me point to some existing definitions cloud computing.

Learnnovators

The year saw many interesting developments directly impacting e-learning in areas like: Courseware Authoring Tools. Cloud Computing. Opening up of learning content that is presently locked up behind firewalls or LMSs to enable access to learners for just-in-time learning or performance support.

A few years ago it made sense because most of the options required programming skills; thus having tools that took this away made development “rapid.” However, many of the tools, like Storyline, have become more sophisticated and replaced traditional programming. And these tools are more prevalent. The tools are getting easier to use and provide more options.

2010: mLearning Year in Review

mLearning Trends

Rather than getting easier, the mlearning landscape will actually grow wider/deeper and far more complex as enterprises are forced to include/support several disparate mobile devices and changing end user demands; this scenario will drive further demand for enterprise-grade content authoring and delivery platforms for mobile learning. Our experience in 2010 found ALL of our new customers and partners went “hosted” instead of installing enterprise (“behind the firewall”). A.K.A.
