If you are a Value Added Reseller (VAR), you know your business is changing fast as cloud services are replacing legacy deliverables, such as hardware and software. The reasons are clear: the cloud offers better, cheaper, and more stable services than the functionality it is replacing. And, the cloud is growing; by the end of 2013, the size of the cloud computing market will be about $150 billion (Gartner, 2010).
Online backup (OLB) is a particularly good entry to cloud services, because it is easy to sell, deploy and manage, keeps you connected to your clients and provides them with a vital, potentially business-saving service.

Many IT managers, owners, and CIOs are embracing the benefits of cloud IT. Cloud has now reached critical mass in the consciousness of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whether they are acquiring new software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities or making infrastructure upgrades via infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Among companies of all sizes, 50% are currently using at least one public SaaS offering, with a further 20% planning to implement public SaaS within the next year. Platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS are less deployed today, but those areas are seeing substantial interest and growth.
Responding to changes in customer business requirements can lead many companies down the path of delivering Software-as-a-Service solutions. While these SaaS solutions can speed up time to market and offer a more comprehensive solution, there are serious challenges to this process, and considerations that should be made before changing your business model. Learn the top strategies for migrating to a SaaS model.

Cyber crime is one of the most innovative businesses in existence today – and make no mistake, it is a business. Cyber criminals are constantly evolving their attack techniques and tools, as cyber security researchers do their best to thwart them.

Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies

anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced

customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
