How do you protect your most important assets while embracing a user-centric IT strategy? Last week, we traveled to Las Vegas for the Oktane18 conference to hear insights from top IT pros, cloud experts, and developers. While we were there, Bryan Mann, Head of Enterprise Architecture at Dropbox, spoke with industry leaders Cori Biruk, Director of Collaboration and SaaS at Dow Jones, Javier Ruiz, Systems Engineer at Silicon Labs, and Jarel Jones, Senior Cloud Systems Administrator at National Geographic.
