By any measure, Office 365 is a success as millions of Microsoft seats transition from on-premises Exchange to a cloud-based email service as part of Office 365. While Microsoft has been offering hosted email solutions for more than 20 years, they have hit their stride with Office 365, the third major iteration of the company’s foray into hosted/cloud-based email and collaboration.
This white paper discusses the key issues that decision makers need to consider as they evaluate the email, security, and resilience capabilities of Office 365. After reading this analyst perspective completed by Michael Osterman of Osterman Research, we believe you will better understand:
Special considerations related to hybrid Exchange and Office 365 email deployments
The importance of programmatic security efficacy rather than simple functionality
How to ensure business messaging continuity in the context of Office 365 outages
Whether third-party backup/recovery is critical for protecting your infrastr
Don't ignore DDoS; instead, take preventive action. With that in mind, IDC believes that hybrid defense scenarios (on-premises equipment married with cloud services) will continue to grow as organizations seek to parry advanced application and large-scale volumetric attacks and as solution providers and product vendors work to deliver joint solutions.

Since it first emerged more than a decade ago, Service Oriented
Architecture (SOA) has been both widely praised as a modern, agile approach to software development and infrastructure architecture as well as dismissed as a colossal waste of time and money.
Missed expectations for many SOA projects led one analyst in 2009 to declare, “SOA is dead.” Far from being dead, however, service oriented architecture is in fact more relevant than ever.

Some companies estimate that up to 80 percent of their analysts’ time is spent on data preparation. Thorough, automated data preparation, however, can quickly transform raw information into reliable, consistent data sets ready for analysis. This report from Gartner details why information management and business analytics leaders must introduce data preparation into their big data initiatives in order to improve both the understanding of the data, and the productivity of analysts.

A number of recent surveys indicate that cloud costs are becoming a major
concern for businesses, many of whom have found cloud computing to be
more expensive than they thought. The surveys align with Gartner’s 2017
prediction that “through 2020, 80% of businesses will overshoot their cloud
infrastructure as a service (IaaS) budgets due to a lack of cost optimization
This could be due to a lack of understanding about cloud pricing, or a lack
of knowledge about the full range of measures that can be taken to reduce
cloud costs. The one area in which businesses are struggling to control
costs more than any other is the hybrid cloud. Analysts attribute hybrid
cloud overspend to the complexity of operating a private or public cloud in
conjunction with an on-premises infrastructure.
Businesses using VMware Cloud (VMC) on AWS don’t experience as much
operational complexity in their hybrid environments, but they can still be
guilty of overspending.

Data Analytics has become critical for many business decision makers. However, many of these managers and data analysts still rely on spreadsheets and other legacy-era tools that fall far short of current needs. As a result, they also rely heavily on a virtual army of data specialists and scientists, working under the auspices of a centralized analytics group, to prepare, blend, analyze, and even report on the critical data they need for decision making.

Take charge of the entire analytical process, instead of relying on other departments
Overcome limitations of legacy tools to save time and prevent errors
Make more comprehensive and insightful business decisions at speed
Analysts struggle to incorporate new sources of data into their analysis because they rely on Microsoft Excel or other tools that were not designed for data blending.
