Implementing an effective disaster recovery strategy for your data

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Oct 12, 2018
Safeguarding your data is more important than ever. In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability. With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to

Human Trafficking: It Takes a Business Community to Drive Business with a Purpose

Published By: SAP     Published Date: Oct 11, 2018
Last week, SAP Ariba held a human trafficking roundtable event at its SAP Hudson Yards New York City offices. The roundtable focused on the United Nations Global Compact that adopted 17 sustainable development goals for its 2030 agenda two years ago. While most individuals and businesses believe slavery was abolished years ago, there are currently over 40 million forced laborers worldwide. The United Nations Global Compact initiative is assisting in highlighting the problem of modern slavery, forced labor, and noncompliance with human rights. And this initiative lines up quite well with procurement and global supply chains.

Webinars vs. Web Conferencing: What Tool is Best for You?

Published By: PGi     Published Date: Oct 01, 2018
You wouldn’t hold a critical investor call, customer event or shareholder’s meeting in your office bullpen. So why would you host an important virtual event on a platform intended to support small-group collaboration and teamwork? Frost & Sullivan research shows that two-thirds of companies use web conferencing on a regular basis for project collaboration. We also know that more and more of them are turning to the same solutions to host webinars for critical internal and external events.

How Technology is Transforming the Financial Services Industry

Published By: Workday     Published Date: Sep 19, 2018
The data deluge problem isn’t just about the amount of internal, operational data being stored, but also the level of granularity available. The finance and HR teams of many institutions still operate on outdated systems that are only able to store aggregate data with complex details summarized. While these systems may be sufficient for the purpose of financial reporting, they’re unable to keep up with the level of complexity needed to drive business decisions.

Bloor Report: Test Data Management

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Sep 07, 2018
There are five ways to provision test data. You can copy or take a snapshot of your production database or databases. You can provision data manually or via a spreadsheet. You can derive virtual copies of your production database(s). You can generate subsets of your production database(s). And you can generate synthetic data that is representative of your production data but is not actually real. Of course, the first four examples assume that the data you need for testing purposes is available to you from your production databases. If this is not the case, then only manual or synthetic data provision is a viable option. Download this whitepaper to find out more about how CA Technologies can help your business and its Test Data problems.

Data Lakes, Purposes, Practices, Patterns and Platforms

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Aug 28, 2018
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too. Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data. To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f

The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Compliance For Mobile Devices

Published By: MobileIron     Published Date: Aug 20, 2018
The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

Halving Downtime Costs for Mission Critical Apps

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: Aug 09, 2018
The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex, and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation initiatives. Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Ovum Report

Published By: Microsoft     Published Date: Jul 20, 2018
At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure. The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database. The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in
