These days, a lot of organizations are looking to the cloud to help them protect their data. They wish to take advantage of
the appealing economics and operational agility that are two of the biggest attributes of a cloud-based IT infrastructure.
Leveraging the cloud can be a smart choice for any organization interested in gaining more control over costs (i.e., almost
all organizations). According to ESG research, reducing costs was the second most commonly reported business driver
affecting IT spending in 2016
Use of cloud computing by enterprise companiesis growing rapidly. A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure
equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining on-premise, at the “Edge”. In this paper, we describe and critique the common physical infrastructure practices seen today, propose a method of analyzing the resiliency needed, and discuss best practices that will ensure employees remain connected to their business critical applications.
Integrated on-premises solutions offer tight control and flexibility, but can be quickly overwhelmed by a large volumetric attack. Managed cloudbased services deliver protection from those largeattacks, but can be expensive if used for all traffic, all the time. By using a combination of on-premises security devices and a cloud-based scrubbing service to handle volumetric attacks, organizations maintain control, while spinning up cloud-protection services as needed to handle the largest volumetric floods.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.
How can you ensure the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution you’re considering will meet all the needs of your growing business? Be sure to get answers to these critical questions before making a decision.
A must-read for IT professionals that provides a comprehensive analysis of the API management marketplace and evaluates 22 vendors across 15 essential criteria.
APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.

Today's data-driven organization is faced with magnified urgency around data volume, user needs and compressed decision time frames. In order to address these challenges, while maintaining an effective analytical culture, many organizations are exploring cloud-based environments coupled with powerful business intelligence (BI) and analytical technology to accelerate decisions and enhance performance.
Cloud-based data and processing services present too much opportunity for organizations to ignore. How can organizations realize the obvious financial benefits of the cloud while ensuring information culled from cloud sources is secure and trustworthy?
Good hybrid information governance implies several priorities for IT and the business which are based on these foundational pillars:
- Broad agreement on what information means
- Clear agreement on how owned information assets will be maintained and monitored
- Standard practices for securing strategic information assets
- Enterprise data integration strategy

As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.

In the era of always-on business, enterprises need reliable, secure and consistently fast access at all times. Overlay that with the reality of how organizations combine on-premises systems with cloud-based solutions, and it’s clear that a robust, agile and flexible database platform is mandatory.

For increasing numbers of organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
To accelerate innovation, improve the IT delivery economic model and reduce risk, organizations need to combine data and experience in a cognitive model that yields deeper and more meaningful insights for smarter decisionmaking. Whether the user needs a data set maintained in house for customer analytics or access to a cloud-based data store for assessing marketing program results — or any other business need — a high-performance, highly available, mixed-load database platform is required.
This report presents new research into the use and benefits of IAM and the relationship it has with these three drivers. The research is based on over three hundred interviews with senior IT managers in medium sized to large organisations in a range of business sectors across Europe. The report should be of interest to anyone wanting to better serve all types of users, whilst still keeping control over applications and data.
