Enterprise applications in the cloud are a no-brainer for business organizations and end users, thanks to their flexibility, speed of deployment and ease of use. In many if not most cases, business organizations can buy enterprise cloud apps with no assistance from IT organizations. But IT organizations must deal with a lot of back-end complexity to offer that kind of front-end simplicity. The cloud presents new application management challenges related to reliability, data security and integration with on-premise apps.
QuinStreet Enterprise editors from sites like Enterprise Apps Today, eWEEK, CIO Insight, Baseline Mag, and Datamation regularly discuss these challenges with industry analysts, vendors, thought leaders and companies of all sizes. Join the editors for a live Google Hangout streaming here at 1:30 pm ET on Feb. 5, during which they will share their perspectives and common-sense advice on application management.
