In my previous post, I discussed roadblocks to successful SaaS application delivery and IDC's recommendation that most providers partner or buy, rather than build, infrastructure and monitoring cloud services. Now I want to delve into what that process looks like and the business benefits providers can see using MINDBODY, which has perfected their own personal recipe for SaaS success.
4 Critical Focus Areas During a recent business trip, I had the opportunity to finally see Adam McKay's wonderful portrayal of the horror that was the 2008 financial crisis - "The Big Short." Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell brought me right back to that time, not so long ago, when we all witnessed the fall of major Wall Street firms and the destruction caused by the sub-prime mortgage
Whenever I'm at a games event, I try to start debates. My go-to firestarter is the topic of whether or not we're doing everything we can to make the player experience better.

We've always known that you never get a second chance to make a first impression and it couldn't be truer than it is with mobile financial services.

Because of this dedication to pre-purchase research, there have been
Do you remember when Roger Ebert declared that video games can never be art? Many of my friends in the industry threw themselves (metaphorically) on the floor in fits of rage, as if Ebert was nearby and could hear them.
Digital Transformation, Millennials, and the Future of Financial Services Digital performance is more important to Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) than ever before. As they continue to work to regain the trust of customers, investors, and regulators, FSIs must prepare to engage and attract the next generation of customers - millennials. Simultaneously, digitally native startups are making inroads on their market share. In response, FSIs must undergo a digital transformation -
On the web, every second counts. Service engineers and operations teams are looking for ways to save milliseconds from web pages' load times. One of the simpler ways to squeeze better performance from web pages already using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) is to move the redirection responses from origin to the edge. A simple and common example of redirects could be to upgrade the protocol used from HTTP to
