Hurix Digital

Over the last few years, cloud technology has become an inevitable aspect of every organization and sector. Acting as a catalyst for growth, the cloud approach has completely revolutionized the way enterprises operate their businesses. With the cloud, there is no such risk.

How cloud computing can onboard and train employees

Matrix

Thankfully, cloud-based software solutions can now ensure that your new hires are properly inducted into the company by training them faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Thanks to cloud computing, IT departments no longer need to establish buggy and often slow VPN networks in order to connect with employees.

Cloud Computing Goes Mainstream Implications for the IT Security Workforce

Training Industry

As a former CIO, I have implemented and seen the significant benefits of cloud computing, both in the leverage of compute on demand via infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) delivery models, and in the use of software as a service (SaaS) applications. Addressing this IT cloud security challenge is a two-fold challenge. With today’s new computing and service models, the traditional perimeter no longer exists.

The Changing Face of Work and Workplace Learning

Cloud computing , while it has been around for a long time, is showing huge impact today. “In July 2010, Rackspace Hosting and NASA jointly launched an open-source cloud-software initiative known as OpenStack. The OpenStack project intended to help organizations offer cloud-computing services running on standard hardware. The nature of organizations with their hierarchical structure is already giving way to more networked and democratic workplaces.

Plus, what does being in the cloud actually mean? Hosting does offer very tight and safe security, and access is via the internet, even if you go through your VPN (Virtual Private Network). Argument for security internally due to data or otherwise is out-dated: Even before cloud computing, hosted LMS/LCMSs always had very tight security safeguards in place; in some cases stronger than some companies; I am unaware of one LMS/LCMS that has been hacked.
