Published By: Datastax     Published Date: Apr 04, 2017
Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days.

STREAMLINING VM BACKUPS WITH THE PUBLIC CLOUD

Published By: Druva     Published Date: Nov 09, 2018
The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the next 12 to 18 months.

HOW TO MOVE VMWARE DATA PROTECTION TO THE CLOUD

Published By: Druva     Published Date: Nov 09, 2018
The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the

Published By: LogMeIn     Published Date: Feb 27, 2018

Energy Resilience: Building The Business Case

Published By: Centrica Business Solutions     Published Date: Aug 14, 2018
The energy landscape has become increasingly complex. Globally, we’re relying less on centralized, steady power sources – such as gas-fired and coal-fired power stations – and more on mixed, locally-distributed renewable energy supplies including solar, wind, tidal and battery. While this is positive for the environment and carbon emissions, it makes balancing power grids a much more complex task. Power quality and reliability becomes more variable in output, while demand for power continues to increase steadily. But when it comes to energy resilience, many organizations simply don’t know where to start. What solutions are available? Which are the best ones for their specific situation and physical premises? What will be their return on investment? Is it simply the cost of doing business, or is there actually a business case? The guide will give you the tools and data to build your understanding and quantify the benefit for your organization.

Privileged Account Management for Dummies

Published By: Group M_IBM Q2'19     Published Date: Apr 11, 2019
The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations and in the cloud. Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common: They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords. In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience. Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated with their compromise an

A guide to optimizing digital marketing performance through better data.

Published By: Claravine     Published Date: Jan 03, 2019
Marketers have long struggled with the simple task of knowing which marketing spend is truly effective, and how to optimize that spend. At the heart of the issue lies the challenge of ensuring the data quality and consistency exists to make decisions based on real intelligence. Why is this a problem? First, effective tracking is reliant on the consistent, complete application of campaign tracking codes and associated metadata, which has traditionally been a manual, ungoverned process. Adding to this complexity has been the dramatic expansion of digital marketing point solutions, and the disparate teams expected to execute across each of these channels and geographies. The result is what you would expect—highly inaccurate, incomplete, and inconsistent data that must be manually cleaned before reporting is possible. Fortunately a solution exists. Progressive marketing leaders are implementing Digital Experience Data Management (DXDM), ensuring the rich, consistent insights critical to ma

Employers with the resources to manage leave internally are increasingly using technology to assist them.

Chatbots 101: Why Knowledge Management is Critical to Their Success

Published By: MindTouch     Published Date: Mar 08, 2019
Chatbots are hungry and knowledge management is the secret sauce. Chatbots are all the rage. They help customers find information and answers.

How to Build a Testing Team That Performs in a Changing Corporate Environment

Published By: Tricentis     Published Date: Mar 13, 2018
Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact, your software is only as good as the testing team behind it and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way into production. Practically speaking, that means that building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said than done. That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a challenge, so you have to get creative. Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team with the right tools to enable and empower them.
