CompTIA More than 90 Percent of Businesses Using Cloud

The cloud has grown to become quickly become an essential component of modern IT, says CompTIA Inc. with data from their latest study, computer, which depends more than 90 percent support, to a certain degree of cloud computing.

This conclusion was based on a survey of 2014 June/July, which also found that the applications ,infrastructure and other resources move to the cloud-based is not as easy as some sellers say in the marketing materials.This may come as a surprise to some companies,because they contain the expectation that the initial migration and integration are the main obstacles to the smooth running in the cloud,Seth Robinson,senior director of CompTIA for the analysis of technologies have been in a press release quoted.

The main conclusions of this area has shown that companies in the early stages of transformations in the cloud, the 28 percent it considerable effort, the number jumped to 63 percent of those who must have completed a fact transformation.In cloud,as companies are involved in operations moving to the cloud more, the pain worse.For businesses,the experimental use of the cloud for non-critical application, it takes reported 73 percent,low to moderate exertion; go to the next step,an uncritical use to full production decreases the number by 66 percent and move from the total production on stage he transformed, only 37 percent was relatively easy.

These growing pains should not deter companies,however,the study reported that the move to the cloud is to reduce costs (although the study did not quantify the cost savings).Perhaps is not surprising that larger businesses, with your IT staff bigger and deeper into their pockets,most progress has been made,the level of transformed iT,CompTIA described as companies not only systems or existing applications to the cloud her move.changing the way we work in order to reap the full benefits At this point,the report says,the cloud is no longer an area of significant interest,rather than fully integrated into IT operations and management.

While large companies the right of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) also dive if later. Those who are still experiencing the typical factor of safety as the main obstacle to the place point .CompTIA cloud,companies IT organization and IT certification,surveyed 400 IT professionals and business for the survey.

Predicting The Next CompTIA A+ Exam

Windows 8.1 Start menu; motherboard detail

Inevitably, CompTIA A+ Certification,the vendor-neutral certification for entry-level computer technicians,has always provided a rear-view-mirror image of computer and network technology.It takes time to determine which operating systems,products, and procedures are necessary for technicians to learn and master, and which ones are doomed to become Jeopardy questions (“Tech Fads for $200, Alex”),such as Microsoft BOB or CueCat. With the next iteration of the CompTIA A+ Certification exams expected in late 2015 or early 2016, it’s anyone’s guess what the exams will look for. However, it’s a useful exercise, so here goes.

What Should Be Added?

In the next generation of exams, I hope to see the following. Let’s start with an easy one:

Coverage of Windows 8.1 or Possibly Windows “Threshold”/9

win81 privacy settings

Windows 8 / 8.1 new challenges for technical support, and even if you can still use the Control Panel, everything the helpdesk for Windows 8 / 8.1 has a lot of questions that center around the home screen and manage your system management features Windows 9x .will the cut? If released as expected in the spring of 2015, it could be enough. Otherwise, I would expect that to be displayed as Windows 7 content was collected in an update to the next test in an update of 220-701 / 702 tests a few years ago.

Coverage of Bootable CDs For Troubleshooting

rescue cd creation

With malware infections capable of preventing computer access to the Internet and installed anti-malware apps, techs frequently need to create and use boot CDs or DVDs that can be used for malware removal, file copying, and disk partitioning. With the number of vendors on the market, it might make the most sense to cover basic features and generalized usage rather than specific step-by-step procedures.

Hands-on Virtualization

Virtual machine (VM) Oracle VM VirtualBox

Virtualization is barely touched upon in the current generation of CompTIA A+ Certification objectives. However, whether a tech is working a help desk, testing apps, or testing an operating system, understanding the basic process of setting up a virtualization environment and installing an OS and common apps in a virtual machine is increasingly important. I think it’s time to add to this topic.
