Q&A: Raj Samani, CTO McAfee

How big a role will cloud computing play in your organisation in the next three years? What other technologies are you watching?

Cloud computing will not only impact the business but every aspect of our personal lives.

We are already beginning to see these changes manifest themselves through online personal storage, and content providers.

There are many other technologies that demand real focus, for example mobility, which in some way is related to the endpoint evolution (e.g. it used to be PCs and servers but now includes everything from TVs to SCADA devices).

What are the most important criterion you use to make decisions that impact your business and why?

Return on Investment ROI) will what we are doing demonstrate business value?

Is there anything else you care to add?

Technology is an exciting place to be, and within McAfee there are some really exciting technology announcements we plan to make. Stay tuned!
