IT transformation is a strategic focus for IT executives as they seek to free up time, money and resources to invest in digital innovation. The most successful organizations are paying more attention to data protection as a critical element to transform and modernize the entire IT stack and deliver greater business value.
If your organisation carries out business in the European
Union, then you may be aware that your life is about to become
a lot more complicated starting in May 2018. That’s when the
new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take
effect. IBM is positioned to help you develop strategies to
address the challenges of the GDPR. Our Pathways for GDPR
readiness are phased programme engagement points and
cognitive capabilities which can accelerate your journey.
This new, stronger regulation will aim to harmonise data
protection across all 28 EU Member States. In some cases, it
will merely strengthen or enhance specific rights which are
already in place under many local data privacy laws, whilst other
rights and obligations will be introduced for the first time.

The clock is ticking: A year from today, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. With that in mind, now is a good time to talk about how Workday offers tools that help customers meet their GDPR obligations.
But first, here’s a brief refresher: The GDPR is an EU regulation meant to harmonize the patchwork of data protection laws in Europe. The GDPR repeals and replaces not just the current EU data protection directive, but also the Byzantine system of privacy legislation that each EU member state enacted under that directive.

As a turbulent 2017 draws to a close, attention now turns to 2018, a year where challenges, such as Brexit, IFRS15 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will move into sharper focus for finance leaders across Europe, bringing yet more uncertainty. While there is no magic crystal ball to predict the future, CFOs are being asked to provide business leaders with better forecasting and planning to support decision making. This report delves deeper into finance leaders’ attitudes towards forecasting and planning, with a particular focus on how things have changed since the last report in 2016
Osterman Research wants to make it clear at the outset that we believe Microsoft Office 365 to be a robust and capable platform, one that will serve most organizations well. If your organization is using Office 365, we recommend you continue to do so. If you’re not using it, we recommend you consider it. Microsoft offers a large, varied and growing number of features and functions in Office 365, and at a wide range of price points that will satisfy different markets.
Decision makers evaluating the efficacy of Office 365 to meet their business requirements must be aware of its shortcomings in the areas of data protection, archiving, security, encryption, authentication and eDiscovery (among others) covering workloads like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Skype for Business, and Azure Active Directory. An awareness of these shortcomings enables decision makers to plan for the mitigations required to assure the proper business performance of Office 365.
The Business Case for Data Protection, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Ounce Labs, is the first study to determine what senior executives think about the value proposition of corporate data protection efforts within their organizations. In times of shrinking budgets, it is important for those individuals charged with managing a data protection program to understand how key decision makers in organizations perceive the importance of safeguarding sensitive and confidential information.

With cybercriminals threatening nations globally, cybersecurity is taking a front seat in many regions. Most notably, the European Union (EU) has adopted regulations to combat the threats. Against the backdrop of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, the EU has set forth rules and procedures for enhanced cybersecurity, along with penalties for noncompliance, in the form of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new body of mandated policies and procedures aims to protect EU member personal information collected and/or stored by organizations. Read more in the GDPR business brief.
This white paper will provide a road map to the most effective strategies and technologies to protect data and provide fast recovery should data be lost or corrupted due to accident or malicious action.
Journaling is a powerful feature, one that IBM has continued to develop and improve over the years. Yet, depending upon your business requirements, you probably still need more protection against downtime than journaling alone can provide. This white paper will cover what you need to know about journaling, what it can do and how it supports and cooperates with high availability software.
This white paper provides a road map to the most effective strategies and technologies to protect data in AIX environments and provide fast recovery should data be lost or corrupted due to accident or malicious action. The paper also outlines the benefits of continuous data protection (CDP) technologies for AIX.
Continuous member service is an important deliverable for credit unions, and. the continued growth in assets and members means that the impact of downtime is affecting a larger base and is therefore potentially much more costly. Learn how new data protection and recovery technologies are making a huge impact on downtime for credit unions that depend on AIX-hosted applications.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit
The HX Data Platform uses a self-healing architecture that implements data replication for high availability, remediates hardware failures, and alerts your IT administrators so that problems can be resolved quickly and your business can continue to operate. Space-efficient, pointerbased snapshots facilitate backup operations, and native replication supports cross-site protection. Data-at-rest encryption protects data from security risks and threats. Integration with leading enterprise backup systems allows you to extend your preferred data protection tools to your hyperconverged environment.
For the typical enterprise, the volume of data that needs to be managed and protected is growing at roughly 40% per year. Add to that the performance requirements of new applications and the demands for instant response time, always-on availability, and anytime-anywhere access. With such demands, data center managers face storage challenges that cannot be addressed using traditional, spinning-disk technology.
