Project Management in the New World of Azure
Tuesday, July 21, 2015
By: Carri Albrecht  
The Cloud has brought us many benefits as well as made the impossible, possible.  You can now access all your data on all of your gadgets instantly.  It allows you to succeed/fail faster by testing out your new ideas on a small server in Azure before making the large investment in, and waiting for, new hardware. You can spin up new servers in minutes based off of a template ensuring the servers are all identical- eliminating human error.  The impossible becomes possible with Azure, but not without its own challenges.

By: Eric VanRoy  
Safari 8 on iPhone 8.2 has an issue that may continuously prompt the user for their credentials.
