Cloud Migration: The most important thing you can do to modernize your software systems.

Awareness is not the problem - most businesses know they have old, outdated systems that aren’t efficient. The issue is that there is no silver bullet - and no guarantee that if you modernize today, you won’t need to do so again in 2 or 3 years. So why not just wait? Waiting won’t solve the problems, it will just delay the inevitable. But there are options.

3 Critical Steps to Take Before Starting Your Software Development Project

3 Critical Steps to Take Before Starting Your Software Development Project

You already know the custom software you’d like to build and who is going to build it. So why is a project assessment crucial to its development? 

A project assessment is the best way to determine your project’s goals, scope, and management approach before investing valuable time and resources in development. Before you start designing and building, it’s critical to get to the bottom of your objectives and expectations--specifically the features and resources needed, the levels of risk you are willing to take, metrics for success, and how you are going to get the project done. Every software project assessment should address these three critical steps: Project Goals (The “Why”), Project Scope (The “What”), and Project Management (The “How”).

If you think you can’t afford to address application security now, think again...

There is no doubt that the safety and security of sensitive information is the primary concern in software application security. Data in transit, and in particular, data _at rest_, needs to be protected and to do so you need to put security controls in place. Security needs to be part of the full lifecycle of your software - design, development, testing & maintenance.

If You think you can’t afford to address application security now, think again - It’ll cost you much more in the future… Uber paid hackers a ransom of $100,000 to destroy the data they stole and then was fined nearly $500,000 for letting them steal the data in the first place http://ow.ly/J3WT50jPJtR. $600,000 may mean nothing to a company like Uber but what does it mean to you? Application security isn’t a luxury, its a requirement. Stop putting it off and get your data secured before its too late.
