IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.

Technology has fundamentally changed the way we live. Access to data and information anytime, anywhere is no longer a luxury—it is a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver higher-quality applications more often, enabling companies to stay relevant and seize digital business opportunities.
Cloud-native is an approach to building applications that takes advantage of cloud computing models and DevOps principles to make the delivery of new features and services faster and more flexible. With a cloud-native strategy, organizations can begin the culture, process, and technology changes needed to meet new demands and become an IT organization that can deliver business innovation faster.
Cloud technology is quickly becoming the default at companies of all sizes. Nine out of ten companies have already moved at least some of their applications or computing infrastructure to the cloud or plan to do so in the next 12 months. IT spending reflects this trend, with the average investment in cloud rising nearly 36% from two years ago. What’s more, cloud adoption isg rowing across all delivery models, with examples of every kind of application and workload on every kind of platform, according to a recent IDG survey. The survey results represent the practices and opinions of 550 IT decision-makers whose organizations have either already adopted cloud technology or plan to do so within the next three years.

Today’s advanced cyber threats target every computer and
mobile device, including enterprise endpoints, especially
those that make up critical infrastructure like industrial
control systems and embedded devices that control much
of our physical world. The modern computing landscape
consists of a complex array of physical, mobile, cloud, and
virtual computing, creating a vast attack surface. Meanwhile,
the cybersecurity industry is prolific with defense-in-depth
security technologies, despite a threat landscape that remains
highly dynamic, sophisticated, and automated.
Cylance, however, takes a unique and innovative approach
of using real-time, mathematical, and machine learning
threat analysis to solve this problem at the endpoint for
organizations, governments, and end-users worldwide.
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

The Edge Completes the Cloud
Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centers. To maximize application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.
Enabling this thinking is that although the cloud is becoming mainstream, that does not imply that all workloads will be placed in the cloud during the next decade or so. Technical incompatibilities, decades of embedded business logic in mainframe applications, government regulations and simple economics all conspire to keep some workloads out of the cloud, driving us toward a hybrid multi cloud future.

The container revolution is under way today as companies seek to move faster and build digital assets
to support growth. IDC forecasts that there will be over 1.8 billion enterprise container instances
deployed by 2021. Container platforms will be key to managing the ever-expanding diversity of
IT environments (multiple operating systems, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds).
While containers are the perfect vehicle to underpin cloud-native, microservices applications,
containers are also well suited to many existing applications. These applications can reap immediate
benefits from being modernized and prepare for possible refactoring over time. To successfully
leverage containers in these diverse scenarios and do it at scale, enterprises will need a robust,
integrated, and holistic container platform.
Docker containers exploded onto the scene in 2013 as a better way to develop
software and has quickly become part of the enterprise infrastructure. Organizations
often start by containerizing applications -- either components of a monolithic
application or new distributed applications. But containerization itself isn’t enough
to become more innovative. It requires changing processes, culture and the overall
organizational mindset. That makes a container platform essential to success.
In this paper, we will discuss what a container platform
is and why it’s a critical part of any effort to drive
change and innovation in the digital economy.

Digital transformation has moved out of the early-adopter phase and into mainstream adoption. According to the ZK Research 2018 IT Priorities Study, 88% of businesses now have digital initiatives underway, up from 84% in 2017. The urgency of IT and business leaders is well warranted, as companies that master being digital will leapfrog the competition and be able to sustain a market-leading position. Those that lag in their digital initiatives will fall farther behind and will struggle to survive.
The key to digital success is having an agile IT foundation that enables businesses to adapt to market transitions faster than the competition. However, there is no single technology called “digital transformation.” Rather, it is powered by the following four key enabling technologies

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure.
