An IBM white paper describing the infrastructure implications of today’s converging technology forces and the software defined, next-generation data center transformation vital to capitalizing on them.
To help enterprises create trusted insight as the volume, velocity and variety of data continue to explode, IBM offers several solutions designed to help organizations uncover previously unavailable insights and use them to support and inform decisions across the business.
Learn from this TDWI paper how right-sized information governance can improve the success of data warehousing or big data analytics initiatives, and how a chief data officer can help organizations to appreciate the value of data and its importance to their decisions and operations.
IBM QRadar and BigFix solutions empower IT security teams to view, prioritize and respond to endpoint intelligence in near real time.
How can an organization stay ahead of these advanced security threats? Maintaining a high level of baseline security by consistently enforcing security policies and patch levels on endpoints and servers is definitely required and important. But when networks can have multiple vulnerabilities per IP address at scan time, the slow process of mitigating and patching these weaknesses can result in dangerous security gaps. Today’s IT personnel have to make difficult, risk-based decisions on where to focus their efforts—often without having a complete picture of the security environment. This is even more critical when the number of vulnerabilities across the organization is increasing while the organization has limited resources and skills to fix the vulnerabilities.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored on premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where you may have less immediate control, you must still control your sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.

Businesses that exploit Big Data to improve strategy and execution are distancing themselves from competitors. The Big Data solution from EMC provides market-leading, scale-outing storage, a unified analytics platform, and business process and application development tools. Together, these allow organizations to draw deeper insights and become a more predictive organization.
Forward-looking enterprises know there's more to big data than strong and managing large volumes of information. Big data presents an opportunity to leverage analytics and experiment with all available data to derive value never before possible with traditional business intelligence and data warehouse platforms. Through a modern, big data platform that facilitates self-service and collaborative analytics across all data, organizations become more agile and are able to innovate in new ways.
While the concept of big data is nothing new, the tools and technology and now in place for companies of all types and sizes to take full advantage. Enterprises in industries such as media, entertainment, and research and development have long been dealing with data in large volumes and unstructured formats - data that changes in near real time. However, extracting meaning from this data has been prohibitive, often requiring custom-built, expensive technology. Now, thanks to advancements in storage and analytics, all organizations can leverage big data to gain the insight needed to make their businesses more agile, innovative, and competitive.
Competitive enterprises that embark on big data strategies do so with the expectation that their businesses will transform. They don't just want answers from the data they collect and analyze, they want results. Be it with small, fledgling trials or large, cross-functional efforts, these enterprises want to see clearly how big data can make a difference - with their customers, their processes, their bottom lines and, most important, with growing the business.
Discover how to manage your data growth with the new EMC eBook, Manage Data Growth. Interact with the latest facts, insights and solutions, and hear what customers and subject matter experts are saying in the fast-growing world of data.
