At its core, GDPR seeks to provide consumers with better personal data security. This extends much farther than most people initially thought. Individuals are now guaranteed the following eight rights as a result of this new law.

This year, Nutanix set an aggressive 3-day goal at their .NEXT conference to raise $10,000 for a number of great causes. The majority of donations were allocated to support charities advancing women in STEM. While we were at the conference, we had the pleasure of participating and contributing to the cause. As women continue to make their mark on the workforce in 2018, we hope to be a part of the positive change. If you’re a woman, hell if you’re anyone talented in IT, and you’re looking to get a foot in the door in Madison, Milwaukee or Appleton, or if you’re looking for a senior consulting role, we are hiring, so apply today!
In a highly-discussed decision, Microsoft moved to purchase GitHub. The purchase announcement was made by Microsoft on June 4th. For Microsoft, this isn’t the average acquisition, as GitHub houses a vast and experienced global developer / open-source community. As the Microsoft team has already been working on and with the GitHub programming tool, it makes sense from a use standpoint, but developers are cautious. At the same time, these developers will gain access to the vast array of Microsoft services and its network. It also makes sense to bring in the roughly 28 million open-source developers to the Microsoft network. The deal looks to tie GitHub and Azure more closely together to encourage developers to create and design apps for Microsoft’s cloud services.
