4G cell network technology continues to improve and along with it, the data rates and responsiveness of mobile Internet services. Expect 2014 to be another good year of growth for 4G.

Reminder: Your Exclusive Issue On Cloud Integration

Dear ,

In case you missed it, your copy of InformationWeek's special issue on cloud integration is now available.

Our cover story looks at how increased use of cloud has created a new problem: combining disparate services from multiple cloud providers, each with its own management APIs, service catalogs and technology stacks.

In This Issue:

  • Herding Clouds: Why wrangling hybrid, multivendor infrastructures is confounding, costly -- and critical.
  • Bad Project Managers: 6 Archetypes: The know-it-all. The Pollyanna. The procrastinator. While there's no secret sauce for perfect project management, avoid the archetypes described here.
To Read Your Issue: Read This

We hope you enjoy InformationWeek's November special issue on cloud integration. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Service Department.

Thank you.
