This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in cybersecurity and automated remediation, featuring GigaOm analyst Jon Collins and a special guest from Puppet, Jonathan Stewart. The discussion will focus on how enterprise security and operations teams can significantly enhance their response to security threats via a collaborative, automated approach to resolution.
Cybersecurity often feels like an asymmetric battle — while on one side, cybercriminals appear to manage their efforts efficiently on the dark web, enterprises often deal with the consequences individually, reliant on manual processes and tools. So, what can we learn from the perpetrators about how to coordinate a response to security threats when, or before, they happen?
In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:
How cybercriminals and hackers work together to create and disseminate security threats
What current challenges are faced by enterprises as they look to respond
What options exist to deal wi
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in IT infrastructure and cloud featuring GigaOm analyst Mark Thiele and special guest from Packet, Jacob Smith. The discussion will focus on what can be done if a business has a need or desire to run application environments outside public cloud; and, in the age of public cloud adoption, what can companies do to remain competitive from an IT perspective.
Most companies aren’t professional data center or infrastructure builders, and they shouldn’t have to be. This is in fact a driver for cloud adoption. Price, Performance, Proximity, Pride and Politics are reasons why enterprises might need more control at times over their infrastructure.
This 1-hour webinar will explore:
The considerations an enterprise must make when looking for a private cloud solution
Examples of what others have done with managed private cloud
If Managed Private Cloud can be cost-competitive with Public Cloud or on-prem IT.

Many businesses are now considering various options as they migrate to SAP S/4 Hana. Numerous organizations rely on SAP platform solutions, many of which were implemented during the late 1990s and early 2000s. By 2025, SAP will end mainstream maintenance on all instances of ERP installations forcing enterprises to migrate to SAP S/4HANA, or re-implement complex ERP installations, which can come with many challenges.
Read this whitepaper, written in collaboration with Capgemini, to learn:
How to prove the business value of a migration to SAP S/4HANA.
Why an API-led architecture is the best approach for SAP S/4HANA integration with existing systems, providing agility and shielding an organization’s technology stack from future changes to other systems.
The main principles of a Center for Enablement (C4E) and how it enables enterprises to implement software design with governance and high delivery speeds.
2019 may be the year where a strong CIO-CMO relationship moves from aspiration to imperative. The notion that marketing and IT should aim to strategically align themselves is not ground-breaking. But the reality of the CIO-CMO relationship is more complex, the route toward its success harder to traverse. When large enterprises are faced with digital transformation and customer-facing initiatives; too often, IT and marketing fail to collaborate well enough to create a competitive advantage. Or even enough to keep up with competitors.
This whitepaper takes a deep dive into the CIO-CMO relationship. It was created to help marketing and IT decision makers learn how, together, they can make a realistic and immediate impact on the customer journey.

As companies like yours scale their cloud environment, the question has
evolved from “what do I need to protect” to “how do I control and monitor
what I am responsible for?” Many companies, especially those who are born on
the cloud, or who are more cloud-mature understand the Shared Responsibility
Model. Now, they are focusing on building a strategy that gives them greater
control and visibility of their cloud environment.
Gartner reported that “In 2018, the 60% of enterprises that implement
appropriate cloud visibility and control tools will experience one-third fewer
security failures.” Having the right monitoring strategy is beneficial for multiple
reasons, and this eBook will detail how OneLogin implemented it in their AWS
environment, and why you should consider implementing it in yours.

For most enterprises, 60 to 73 percent of enterprise data goes unused for business-intelligence (BI) and analytics efforts, according to Forrester.1
Data that is out of sight or out of date creates a competitive blind spot for businesses today. With customer demands, economic changes, and new trends and technologies evolving at a dizzying pace, staying relevant — not to mention competitive — requires that businesses access all available BI to be ?exible and agile. Businesses must have quick access to data that is comprehensive, accurate, current, and consumable in real time. A traditional infrastructure, where the online analytical processing (OLAP) platform and the online transaction processing (OLTP) platform are separate, makes ?exibility and agility difficult to achieve.
When a business has accurate, current data in hand, it can make real-time data-driven business decisions so that it can stay relevant and competitive, or even be a disruptor in its industry. One way that a busines
Data is multiplying rapidly in quantity and variety for enterprises of all kinds. In multicloud environments, a range of data sources is exponentially increasing the stream of incoming information, from the Internet of Things and social media, to mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking. While organizations are readily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), most haven’t done due diligence to understand their data or ensure the quality of data needed to benefit from AI solutions. In many organizations, their data is inaccessible, unreliable, or non-compliant with data privacy and protection rules.
IBM Services helps its customers effectively plan, manage and migrate their applications to a hybrid multicloud environment.
IBM Services commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by using IBM Services for migrating and modernizing their applications to a multicloud environment.

"Enterprises throughout the world are rapidly digitizing their operations and adopting a multicloud environment. Unfortunately, legacy WAN architecture models often do not provide the scale, flexibility or agility required to support this transition. Enter SD-WAN.
No single platform will be able to deliver every piece in the jigsaw for every type of enterprise and every application-specific set of requirements. The key is to select vendor partners whose platforms are sufficiently open, modular and comprehensive in their functionality and components that they will be able to adapt to enterprises’ increasingly varied, flexible and exacting networking and compute requirements going forward.
Only by doing so will they secure the ability to stay ahead in a multicloud future."
Enterprise applications are moving to the cloud, and for good reasons: The cloud offers a host of potential benefits for both small & mid-sized businesses and large enterprises. These benefits include lower costs, scalable and flexible deployment options, lower capital spending, and access to innovative applications. Communications Service Providers (CSPs), meanwhile, see more opportunities to offer more bandwith to businesses within their footprint.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly becoming an essential business and research tool, providing valuable new insights into corporate data and delivering those insights with high velocity and accuracy.

Despite massive spend to protect enterprise digital assets, security breaches are still on the rise. The disconnect between the level of investment and the volume and impact of attacks is largely attributed to outdated approaches that favor perimeter protection and point solutions despite a digital supply chain that is more distributed than ever. For these reasons and more, enterprises need to start thinking differently about cybersecurity. Security doesn’t need new products. It needs a new model. One that applies the principles of intrinsic security across the fabric of the organization, from the sales floor to the C-suite, from the infrastructure to the endpoint device. In this Essential Guidance executive brief, learn how intrinsic security differs from traditional security methods, and the steps CIOs need to take to operationalize this model for greater business agility without greater risk.
In today’s rapidly changing security landscape, you simply
can’t afford to let your guard down. Studies show that a
staggering 4.5 billion records were compromised in the first
half of 2018.The total cost of a single data breach is now
$3.86 million. Meanwhile, the stealth of recent attacks has
increased the time it takes to contain a breach—69 days, on average.
To investigate how enterprises are responding to these proliferating threats, Lenovo commissioned a global survey of
IT decision makers. The following research looks inside the
volatile security landscape and shows us why keeping PCs
secure today is harder than ever before.
