And then imagine processing power strong
enough to make sense of all this data in every
language and in every dimension. Unless
you’ve achieved that digital data nirvana (and
you haven’t told the rest of us), you’re going
to have some unknowns in your world.
In the world of security, unknown threats exist
outside the enterprise in the form of malicious
actors, state-sponsored attacks and malware
that moves fast and destroys everything
it touches. The unknown exists inside the
enterprise in the form of insider threat from
rogue employees or careless contractors –
which was deemed by 24% of our survey
respondents to pose the most serious risk to
their organizations. The unknown exists in the
form of new devices, new cloud applications,
and new data. The unknown is what keeps
CISOs, what keeps you, up at night – and we
know because we asked you.

An effective rolling forecast is important to estimate long term financial plans. Every organization undertakes this process as a finance activity. However, when the forecasted data is examined on its effectiveness for decision making, more often than not the results are disappointing, and the rolling forecast process needs to be redefined. This paper talks about effective rolling forecasts that utilize resources, technologies, processes, and business intelligence to deliver actionable insights. A best-in-class matured RF process will enable CFOs to deliver great results through increased revenue and cost reductions, and create new benchmarks for the organization.
The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF).
Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way
to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
