Got cloud problems? Look to strategy and process fixes for solutions

To be sure, cloud is a boon to organizations that make the leap, but, as with any technology, there are bumps along the road to implementation. In this episode, David Linthicum talks with Techstrong Group’s Mike Vizard about how companies can address three particularly vexing issues: multicloud complexity, cloud cost management, and cloud security. Mike’s advice is to develop a sound multicloud cloud strategy, treat cloud as a strategic investment, and view security as a process, not a problem.


Technology evolves, we evolve as well, and how people leverage technology is going to change over time. And in essence, you have to go along with the technology shifts.

Mike Vizard is the chief content officer at Techstrong Group. He is a seasoned IT journalist with over 25 years of experience.
