The lack of skilled IT workers is hurting the deployment of emerging technology, according to a new survey from Gartner. In areas from cloud to cybersecurity, this crisis is expected to last for years to come.
In the drive to successful transformation, the underpinning computer network on which that change relies is taken for granted to just magically deliver what is needed. But that’s a strategic mistake, suggests Lars Rossen of Micro Focus, who wants the network treated as a product.
Network modernization is resulting in a new, distributed model for security and delivery technologies. Increasingly these services will be delivered not just as SaaS, but as micro-SaaS: the delivery of individual app security and delivery technologies as SaaS offerings.
