If you’re evaluating big data integration platforms, you know that with the increasing number of tools and technologies out there, it can be difficult to separate meaningful information from the hype, and identify the right technology to solve your unique big data problem. This analyst research provides a concise overview of big data integration technologies, and reviews key things to consider when creating an integrated big data environment that blends new technologies with existing BI systems to meet your business goals.
Read the Buyer’s Guide to Big Data Integration by CITO Research to learn:
• What tools are most useful for working with Big Data, Hadoop, and existing transactional databases
• How to create an effective “data supply chain”
• How to succeed with complex data on-boarding using automation for more reliable data ingestion
• The best ways to connect, transport, and transform data for data exploration, analytics and compliance
Although more than two-thirds of confidential information is regulated through database management systems, no computer security program offers adequate protection for the databases against the main threats affecting them today. Oracle, the leader in databases technologies, offers security solutions for the protection of all layers of the database.

Mid-market HR today is being asked to be a business partner in areas that range from compliance to employee engagement. They need to be able to connect the dots among various sources of employee data to deliver better-informed business decisions to help achieve strategic goals.
Connecting those dots and delivering those results demands more HR firepower and greater data visibility than the manual or homegrown processes and systems often used by mid-market organizations can deliver. On the other hand, most mid-market companies aren’t ready for the intricacies or expense of human capital management (HCM) systems designed for enterprise-level organizations.
The answer for forward-thinking HR leaders who want to boost their team’s capabilities and play a greater role in their company’s future is having core HR functionality designed into an integrated benefits administration solution.
Automated HR that delivers core HR features as part of its architecture — not as an afterthought or a separate, stand-alone module — gives HR leaders:
• The tools they need to better handle their administrative work
• The data and analytics necessary to better coordinate programs and more confidently make strategic decisions
• A user experience that makes life easier for HR and employees

"This whitepaper from the SANS Institute focuses on the growing use and benefits derived from information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) convergence which includes more effective management and operation of contemporary control systems. IT/OT convergence carries unique challenges that make managing and securing an industrial control system (ICS) more difficult. This is due to greater technical complexity, expanded risks and new threats to more than just business operations. This paper explores the issues that arise with the blending of IT and OT into combined cyber-physical systems where risks must be identifed and managed.
Download this report to get answers to these questions:
-Why are digital asset inventories critical for IT/OT security risk management?
-How does knowledge about risks and vulnerabilities to IT/OT systems lead to better risk management?
-Can applying even a few of Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls make a marked difference in the securit

To increase agility while lowering costs, IT organizations are using virtualization and cloud-based infrastructure services to consolidate and reduce the number of physical servers and data centers across the enterprise. IDC estimates that, by 2015, more than 20 percent of the information running through servers will do so on virtualized systems. This percentage increases along with the size of the company, with some larger organizations using 100 percent virtualized systems. IDC predicts that, over the next decade, the amount of information managed by enterprise data centers will grow by a factor of 50.
Did you know that sales reps typically waste up to 16 hours per week on non-selling tasks?
If your sales team is spending too much time on non-selling tasks, logging sales activities to Salesforce, hunting for customer information and documents, or copy-pasting data between separate systems, they might resist the rise of mobile CRM solutions like Salesforce1.
However, it’s important to figure out how to enable these teams in the field, as 55% of salespeople will access sales applications exclusively through smartphones or tablets by the end of 2016. It’s not surprising that salespeople will increase their use of mobile apps 125% from 2015-2017.
In this whitepaper from Tact, you’ll learn 1) common challenges facing field sales teams, 2) a framework for thinking about mobile sales productivity, 3) essential characteristics for evaluating mobile sales solutions, and 4) key trends in mobile sales.
In an effort to stay ahead of the competition, companies have poured capital resources into information technology. In many cases, this has been done on a group-by-group basis, with each line of business creating its own infrastructure silo. Each silo had its own systems, servers, storage, licenses, and support teams—and each shouldered the total cost of owning and operating a standalone infrastructure.Learn more by downloading this paper.
It’s widely accepted that Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems are excellent tools for regulatory compliance, log management and analysis, trouble-shooting and forensic analysis. What’s surprising to many is that this technology can play a significant role in actively defending networks. This whitepaper explains precisely how real-time analysis, combined with in-memory correlation, and automated notification and remediation capabilities can provide unprecedented network visibility, security and control.
Regardless of industry or geographic location, business information is exploding on a massive scale—affecting primary, secondary, and archival storage systems. The sheer quantity of data being amassed is outpacing organizations' ability to keep tabs on it, maintain corporate compliance, meet strict government regulation, and even simply house it in a useful format that can provide invaluable history and knowledge.

VMware Virtual Infrastructure and CA Recovery Management (CA ARCserve Backup and CA Xosoft products) team up to deliver higher availability and risk-resistance for business-critical information and applications, while lowering management and operational costs and complexity.
Frustrated by the costs of maintain ever larger data centers-or building new ones-many companies are exploring virtualization. Virtualization lets your IT staff turn your data center into an internal cloud of computing resources controlled by a single virtual data center operating system (VDC-OS).
Today's use of virtualization technology allows IT professionals to automatically manage the resources of the physical server to efficiently support multiple operating systems, each supporting different applications. This IDC Technology Assessment presents IDC's view of how virtualization technologies are impacting and will continue to impact operating environments and the operating environment market near- and long-term.
VMware virtualization enables customers to reduce their server TCO and quickly delivers signification ROI. This paper describes commonly used TCO models and looks at several case studies that apply TCO models to virtualization projects. Learn more.
To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, traditional security strategies for monitoring, often based around security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics. In particular, four fundamental capabilites are required:
1. Pervasive visibility
2. Deeper analytics
3. Massive scalability
4. Unified view

We will go over a brief introduction of what workforce analytics is, and take a look at why it is sometimes so difficult to get the information we need out of our HR or Business Intelligence systems. We will also dive into the important metrics we should consider as HR professionals and what metrics will ultimately drive your business forward.
HIPAA and HITECH require individually identifiable protected health information (PHI) be secured. The unfortunate reality for IT professionals is that these acts of Congress aren't prescriptive regarding what needs to be done about computer systems.
Databases store companies’ most valuable information assets, but in most cases they’re poorly protected. It’s important to secure databases as well as or better than other systems in the enterprise. But it’s not that simple.
