NoSQL databases are now commonly used to provide a scalable system to store, retrieve and analyze large amounts of data. Most NoSQL databases are designed to automatically partition data and workloads across multiple servers to enable easier, more cost-effective expansion of data stores than the single server/scale up approach of traditional relational databases. Public cloud infrastructure should provide an effective host platform for NoSQL databases given its horizontal scalability, on-demand capacity, configuration flexibility and metered billing; however, the performance of virtualized public cloud services can suffer relative to bare-metal offerings in I/O intensive use cases. Benchmark tests comparing latency and throughput of operating a high-performance in-memory (flash-optimized), key value store NoSQL database on popular virtualized public cloud services and an automated bare-metal platform show performance advantages of bare-metal over virtualized public cloud, further quant
The Cisco 2015 Midyear Security Report examines these intersecting challenges while also providing updates on some of the most compelling threats.

Industry 4.0 is a trending topic across the manufacturing world. It’s also a complex concept that encompasses multiple technologies and disciplines — and the ROI isn’t always readily apparent. One way food and beverage companies are seeing some real-time benefits is through the automation of processes to reduce the potential for human error.
In this exclusive on-demand webcast, Adem Kulauzovic, Director of Coding Automation at Domino Printing, sits down with four industry experts to talk about the impact Industry 4.0 and automation can have on reducing human errors in food packaging.

? Security threats are growing at an astronomical pace–theft, hacking, malware, ransomware... and the list goes on. That's why Lenovo integrates security at every level including built-in hardware, advanced software, a secure supply-chain, complete component validation and integrated services.
In addition to Lenovo's own security features built into each device, Windows 10 Pro delivers comprehensive, built-in and ongoing security protections you can trust – including Windows Hello, Windows Defender Antivirus, firewall, and more.
Read more in this comprehensive product guide, from personal device to data center, we'll show you how we're hard at work securing your devices from the threats.
Commoditization is a serious threat to the telecommunications industry. Most CSPs offer similar services at rates designed to win what has become a price war. As a result, many face decreasing margins and difficulty sustaining differentiation based on prices or products alone. On top of commoditization, CSPs also face competition from OTT providers and an increasingly knowledgeable and demanding customer base. With access to growing amounts of data from an ever-increasing number of sources and devices, today’s empowered, savvy consumers know what they want and expect to get it.
In its "Restoring Connections" paper based on research of telecommunications firms, IBM ‘s top ranked Institute for Business Value identified actions CSPs can take to reset customer experience and build brand loyalty through innovative, compelling, personalized services based on deep customer insight. Join us as we discuss how to leverage network and subscriber data to create unique customer profiles, personalize engagement, and improve marketing offers.

Cisco engaged Miercom to conduct a competitive analysis of its Catalyst 2960-X switch versus two comparable Hewlett-Packard switches from the 2920 and 5120 product families.
Miercom executed comprehensive hands-on testing and evaluated the performance of some widely deployed features that are critical for reliable functioning of enterprise networks. The test methodology focused on specific areas in which Cisco believed there were key competitive differentiators between the products.
Test results validated include throughput, latency, energy efficiency, stacking, LACP load balancing and Quality of Services (QoS) performance.
Miercom found that the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X demonstrated superior performances against the competitive switches in the tests featured in this report.
We tested the following switch-configurations of the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X, HP 2920 and HP 5120 product families.
Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak.
By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far simpler to manage security through defining and delegating application and services to specific users. Thi
We are living in the most revolutionary era in human communication since the invention of the printing press. For the past few years, marketers have ‘woken up’ to consumers who have the power to express their views anytime and anywhere. ‘Social’ is hot, and if nothing else, a response to this awakening. Now, the lines between paid, owned and earned media have been blurred, if not erased. Social media crosses the barrier between the three. It’s fast-paced and chaotic.
We partnered with the research firm Sentient Services and surveyed more than 200 consumers about their attitudes, opinions and beliefs about brands and social media integration. The respondents come from all over the country, with all different incomes, lifestyles, and social media habits. Universally, the data supports what we’ve already seen in action: consumers want to engage with brands that integrate social media, and they prefer to do business with social brands.

Customer relationship management (CRM) deployments are most effective when they legitimately support all three words that make up the acronym itself. Customers of the modern business-to-business (B2B) enterprise benefit when they purchase goods and services from companies who are focused on the buyer’s experience. Internal relationships within the selling organization are more effectively maintained when all customer-facing stakeholders have access to the rich data contained in a well-maintained CRM. And the management of the enterprise providing solutions can run their business like a finely-tuned machine when the maximum levels of visibility into customers and accounts are clear and accurate. This Research Brief combines research from a number of Aberdeen Sales Effectiveness research data sets, to create a holistic view of the most effectively deployed CRM systems.

Businesses face an increasingly complex set of threats to their Web applications—from malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs) to disgruntled employees and unintentional data leaks. Although there is no single security measure than can prevent all threats, there are some that provide broad-based mitigation to a number of threats. The use of SSL encryption and digital certificate-based authentication is one of them. Changes in the way we deliver services, the increasing use of mobile devices, and the adoption of cloud computing compounded by the ever-evolving means of stealing information and compromising services leave Web applications vulnerable to attack.
In this chapter, we turn our attention to the combined risk of losing data and losing customer trust.
Learn how to properly select the right real-time security options for your organization and see how the right actionable security intelligence will allow for safer and more secure data and security operations.
