We talked to Clive why the cloud is probably more secure than many people realise, despite current levels of concern, and whether a cloud solution is the right answer for SMEs looking to manage their content more effectively.
We ask if current cloud architectures, platforms and applications are robust enough to handle the rising volumes of data, Clive’s tips in ensuring your organisation is ready to deploy to a cloud solution, and the challenges you may face.
