It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se
Companies are increasingly moving data and applications to public cloud platforms.
Sometimes these transitions happen with IT’s approval and guidance; sometimes
they don’t. Regardless, a company that stores data and uses applications in multiple
public clouds creates a challenging environment for the security architect. It’s difficult
to gain visibility and control of the security posture when the organization relies on an
assortment of disparate cloud platforms that all take different approaches to security
and offer different tools. And it’s hard for a small security staff to stay on top of
disparate solutions that fail to integrate.
Business intelligence technology must meet the demands of tomorrow's "digital natives"; integrate seamlessly with cloud data and platforms; align people, conversations, and data with business strategy; and make the most of the infrastructures we have today.
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is more than just a new way to store and analyze data; it’s a whole new approach to getting more value from your data.
Market leaders in every industry depend on analytics to reach new customers, streamline business processes, and gain a competitive edge. Data warehouses remain at the heart of these business intelligence (BI) initiatives, but traditional data-warehouse projects are complex undertakings that take months or even years to deliver results.
Relying on a cloud provider accelerates the process of provisioning data-warehouse infrastructure, but in most cases database administrators (DBAs) still have to install and manage the database platform, then work with the line-of-business leaders to build the data model and analytics. Once the warehouse is deployed—either on premises or in the cloud—they face an endless cycle of tuning, securing, scaling, and maintaining these analytic assets.

Not long ago, the biggest concern for IT decision makers considering moving workloads to the cloud was security. That’s no longer the case. Today, the main obstacle to cloud adoption is different but familiar: the pain of migrating data.
Traditional data migration causes major headaches:
• Hours or days of downtime while servers replicate and stakeholders verify functionality
• Data loss and migration failures due to inadequate tools and inability to test
• Key internal resources diverted from strategic initiatives
IT organizations using machine data platforms like Splunk recognize the importance of consolidating disparate data types for top-down visibility, and to quickly respond to critical business needs. Machine data is often underused and undervalued, and is particularly useful when managing infrastructure data coming from AWS, sensors and server logs.

The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.

A Great Use of the Cloud: Recent trends in information management see companies shifting their focus to, or entertaining a notion for the first time of a cloud-based solution. In the past, the only clear choice for most organizations has been on-premises data—oftentimes using an appliance-based platform. However, the costs of scale are gnawing away at the notion that this remains the best approach for all or some of a company’s analytical needs.
This paper, written by McKnight Consulting analysts William McKnight and Jake Dolezal, describes two organizations with mature enterprise data warehouse capabilities, that have pivoted components of their architecture to accommodate the cloud.
The big breakthrough is coming from one of the leading innovators in the all-flash market, Pure Storage. Pure has scaled its architecture to make all of its key enterprise-class features available in an entry-level array that “democratizes” all-flash storage by making it affordable to just about any business. The new product is called the Pure FlashArray//m10.
As with most innovations in business information technology, the ultimate truth about cloud lies somewhere in between. There is little doubt that cloud-based infrastructures offer an immediate opportunity for smaller organizations to avoid the costly investment needed for a robust on-premises computing environment. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without investing in any local hardware. Large organizations with mature on-premises computing infrastructures are looking to Hadoop platforms to help them benefit from the vast array of structured and unstructured data from cloud-based sources. Organizations have feet in both cloud and on-premises worlds. In fact, one could easily argue that we already live in a “hybrid” world.
