From the latest cloud developments to breakthroughs in storage technology, TechFinitive’s Data section keeps our readers abreast of what’s happening in this crucial industry – after all, data underpins almost everything we do.

One of our main goals in the Data section is to demystify the industry. Cloud computing alone is cluttered with acronyms and phrases that almost seem designed to confuse rather than enlighten. So, you will find explainers that cover multicloud, public cloud, data sovereignty, virtual machines and more. We will keep adding to this already extensive list.

To provide useful advice to both IT managers and the end users whose jobs rely on data, we provide practical information on how to get the most out of services. Our aim is to keep our readers at the cutting edge of these technologies, so we’re always on the lookout for ways we can give them an advantage.

And whilst data as a topic is rarely top of a mainstream paper’s headlines, it’s often a key part of breaking news stories. This often ties in with security – after all, data is ransomware’s target – and it’s vital for our readers to understand if they need to rethink their data strategy as a result of a breach.

If you would like us to write an explainer on a data-related topic, or provide in-depth advice on using a cloud technology to your advantage, please get in touch. You can email us at [email protected], follow us on Twitter and join us on LinkedIn.
