Aside from plenty of laughs, the 1993 film “Groundhog Day” actually delivers powerful messages about change, love and the too-often-overlooked importance of being courteous to others.

Businesses today are more dependent on technology than ever. And, more than ever, they're looking to IT for ways to improve employee productivity, customer service and innovation.

Get an insider’s take on 2017 cloud computing, DevOps, and Internet of Things (IoT) trends from an industry expert.

Unlike ITIL, DevOps is more of a philosophy than a formal framework.
