Solving the paradox of secure publishing

There’s a growing paradox for business owners and IT: make important digital content more available, while at the same time maintaining more control over it.

It makes total sense, given that digital content deliverers like AT&T are looking and acting more and more like a utility. Capacity utilization is their key to success, and pricing is a tool to level load demand and maximize the dollars that can be earned with that capacity. Continue reading »
