For this week’s IT Origins interview, we had the priveledge to sit down with technology consultant, speaker, and Microsoft MVP, Sonia Cuff. We discussed her start in IT, the best and worst trends, and how it’s all changed since she started.
Companies have begun to shift from describing older apps as “legacy”, and embracing more descriptive term “traditional”. While everyone scrambles to modernize these apps for modern software ecosystems, it’s worth noting what this change signifies.
Gmail doesn’t distinguish if you put extra dots in your email. Netflix does. Oh, not a problem you say? Bruce Schneier shows how two mundane data practices can come together to create a security exploit.
On this roundtable, we’re getting cloudy. The panelists discuss why it matters where your SaaS apps live, and not just depend on an SLA. This can impact not just business continuity and customer experience, but security and compliance as well.

I had the privilege to talk to Data Architect Karen Lopez for this week’s IT Origins interview. We discuss how data hasn’t changed all that much since she started her career, but our ways of relating to it have. We also discussed the best and worst IT trends, got some book recommendations for the world, and walked away with some career advice.
