One of the most common concerns businesses have when they consider adopting a cloud computing solution is that they will have less control over their IT system. Thus, they worry that their data will not be secure enough, and their concern is understandable. Data breaches are expensive, both financial-wise and reputation-wise, and with attacks becoming more and more sophisticated, security has become a top priority. Luckily, adopting cloud computing does not mean that you have to give up security, but you will want to do your research when comparing options.

The growth of unstructured information inside the enterprise is staggering. In fact, experts estimate that over 80 percent of data in organizations is unstructured and is growing at a rate of over 36 percent year-over-year. Managing this information across different formats, devices, and applications is a challenge for organizations that's not going away. There is profound value in this unstructured information. In fact, your company’s future depends on it.
Big data is an exciting opportunity for businesses looking for the information they need to use targeted messaging and personalized experiences to boost profits, but the thought of a company having access to all of their online information has many consumers worried. With information about the National Security Agency’s monitoring of email and phone calls, and social networks like Facebook constantly pushing that privacy boundary, it’s only natural that people are concerned about the privacy and security of their data.
A recent survey found that 88 percent of people consider one industry a threat to their online privacy, but there is also very little understanding of who is collecting data and for what purpose.

I come to praise an idea that the CMS Connection team has been pushing for years: CMS collaboration. I just came back from Boston. Last weekend, you could walk into a bar and see the leadership of open source CMSs - WordPress, Joomla and Drupal - drinking and laughing together.
John and Linda at CMS Expo have been pioneering events like this for years with the CMS Expo Learning and Business Conference. It seems as if 2013 may be the year when the idea of open collaboration between projects finally went mainstream.
