Datacenter Care IDC whitepaper

Published By: HPE Intel     Published Date: Mar 15, 2016
As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.

Increase Visibility to Boost Security - Protect your apps by orchestrating your SSL traffic

Published By: F5 Networks Singapore Pte Ltd     Published Date: May 27, 2019
What you can’t see will hurt you The situation is critical, because the percentage of encrypted user traffic has more than doubled since 2014, exceeding 80 percent, according to F5 Labs' 2017 TLS Telemetry report. So, of course, now there are SSL visibility solutions that provide decryption services allowing those security controls to see what they’re doing. But visibility, by itself, isn’t enough. Security teams and network operations have found that setting up decryption zones is not easy. Security teams often have to resort to manual daisy-chaining or tedious configuration to manage decryption/encryption across the entire security stack. And then they find that exceptions abound. And lastly, you need to scan your inbound and outbound traffic for tomorrow’s threats, and SSL Orchestrator is the tool that lets your security controls keep your organization’s name out of the papers and away from those pesky GDPR fines.

Published By: TIBCO Software     Published Date: Aug 15, 2018
Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT. Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

IDC Case Study on Flybe: Flying High on the Use of Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Sep 25, 2014
When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline. Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence.

Achieving a Unified Governance Strategy

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Aug 24, 2017
Data governance is all about managing data, by revising that data to standardize it and bring consistency to the way it is used across numerous business initiatives. What’s more, data governance ensures that critical data is available at the right time to the right person, in a standardized and reliable form. A benefit that fuels better organization of business operations, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency of that organization. Thus, the importance of proper data governance cannot be understated. The concepts of data governance have evolved, where the first iteration of data governance, often referred to as version 1.0, focused on three simplistic elements: objectives, structure and processes; having a limited focus and scope due to its tactical usage. The opportunity from the growing value of data in the realm of analytics, business intelligence, and generating insights was left unrealized. Today, organizations are moving towards what can be called Data Governance 2.0,

Ransomware and New Threat Vectors for ICS/SCADA Networks

Published By: CyberX     Published Date: Aug 21, 2017
Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations. The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes. The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past. To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and
