In today’s markets, customer identities and the personal data associated with them are among the most critical and valuable assets of any enterprise. Managing these digital identities — from first registration and login to the later stages of the customer relationship — and extracting business value from the associated data are complex tasks, commonly referred to as customer identity and access management (CIAM).
When implementing a system to collect, manage, and utilize digital identity and customer data, companies have two basic choices: in-house development or buying a dedicated solution from a vendor specialized in CIAM (i.e., build vs. buy).
Read this white paper for an in-depth analysis of CIAM implementation options, including:
? Must-haves for a successful, enterprise-grade CIAM system
? Pros and cons of implementation options, ranging from in-house software development to commercial off-the-shelf solutions
? A real-world case study that illustrates the ROI of an effective CI

The advantages blockchain can bring to the automotive ecosystem, both in facilitating
collaboration among participants and enabling capabilities for new mobility business
models, have gotten the attention of automotive executives. In addition to enabling a
single source of data, blockchain can facilitate device-to-device transactions, smart
contracts, and real-time processing and settlement. For the automotive industry, this
translates into improvements and operational efficiencies in areas such as supply chain
transparency, financial transactions between ecosystem participants, authenticating
access to cars, and customer experience and loyalty.
Big Data and analytics workloads represent a new frontier for organizations. Data is being collected from sources that did not exist 10 years ago. Mobile phone data, machine-generated data, and website interaction data are all being collected and analyzed. In addition, as IT budgets are already under pressure, Big Data footprints are getting larger and posing a huge storage challenge. This paper provides information on the issues that Big Data applications pose for storage systems and how choosing the correct storage infrastructure can streamline and consolidate Big Data and analytics applications without breaking the bank.
Continuous data availability is a key business continuity requirement for storage systems. It ensures protection against downtime in case of serious incidents or disasters and enables recovery to an operational state within a reasonably short period. To ensure continuous availability, storage solutions need to meet resiliency, recovery, and contingency requirements outlined by the organization.
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?

Bandwidth. Speed. Throughput. These terms are not interchangeable. They are
interrelated concepts in data networking that help measure capacity, the time
it takes to get from one point to the next and the actual amount of data
you’re receiving, respectively.
When you buy an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise, you’re buying
a pipe between your office and the Internet with a set capacity, whether it is
25 Mbps, 10 Gbps, or any increment in between. However, the bandwidth we
provide does not tell the whole story; it is the throughput of the entire system
that matters. Throughput is affected by obstacles, overhead and latency,
meaning the throughput of the system will never equal the bandwidth of your
The good news is that an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise is
engineered to ensure you receive the capacity you purchase; we proactively
monitor your bandwidth to ensure problems are dealt with promptly, and
we are your advocates across the Internet w
"Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms are a relatively new phenomenon, and they go far beyond
the remote monitoring systems of a prior generation. Three key features differentiate cloud-based
predictive analytics — data sharing, scope of monitoring, and use of artificial intelligence/machine
learning (AI/ML) to drive autonomous operations. To help familiarize the uninitiated with specifically
what types of value these systems can drive, IDC discusses them at some length in this white paper."
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.
Whether your company has been selling online for 20 minutes or 20 years, you are
undoubtedly familiar with the PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). It
requires merchants to create security management policies and procedures for safeguarding
customers’ payment data.
Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS
has evolved over the years to ensure online sellers have the systems and processes in place
to prevent a data breach.

Are you asking the right questions about your data center?
• Would you like your IT infrastructure to be faster and more agile?
• Would you like to improve your cost structure?
• Do you plan to adopt a hybrid IT infrastructure and become a service provider for your business?
To adapt to and compete in our ultra-connected, data-driven, and digital world, you need to effectively plan, build, integrate, and manage your facilities, platforms, and systems to efficiently align your infrastructure resources.
The increasing demands of application and database workloads, growing numbers of virtual machines, and more powerful processors are driving demand for ever-faster storage systems. Increasingly, IT organizations are turning to solid-state storage to meet these demands, with hybrid and all-flash arrays taking the place of traditional disk storage for high performance workloads.

In midsize and large organizations, critical business processing continues to depend on relational databases including Microsoft® SQL Server. While new tools like Hadoop help businesses analyze oceans of Big Data, conventional relational-database management systems (RDBMS) remain the backbone for online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytic processing (OLAP), and mixed OLTP/OLAP workloads.
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
