The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers ó regardless of location ó must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
protect data no matter where itís stored ó on-premises and in the cloud ó can ease companies along
their readiness journeys and help them achieve and sustain compliance from May 25, 2018, and onward
More data means more opportunities to discover powerful, actionable insights around customers, internal processes, and the broad market. Unfortunately, legacy IT architectures and approaches can block progressive analytics efforts.
That leaves a lot of room for improvement, and the learning and investment curve for starting in analytics can be steep. However, tending to three core steps will prove immensely helpful on this journey:
ē Establishing an organizational foundation
ē Mapping the data pipeline
ē Transitioning analytics proofs of concept into production
Today, as IT departments struggle to design and implement solutions capable of managing exponential data growth with strict requirements for application scale and performance, many
of them are turning to in-memory data grids (IMDGs).

Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) ó the networked connection of people, process, data, and things ó will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value ó $8 trillion ó will come from one of IoEís chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as ďthe intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,Ē IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.
