This webinar discusses details of Oracle's servers designed for cloud and scale-out, which provide security by default, better core efficiency for cloud apps, and accelerate data analytics at X86 commodity cost points.
In the age of information, staying on top of emerging threats requires IT teams to leverage existing tools in innovative ways, such as applying deep packet inspection and analysis from performance monitoring solutions for advanced security forensics.
Based on recent insight gathered from 322 network engineers, IT directors and CIOs around the world, 85 percent of enterprise network teams are now involved with security investigations, indicating a major shift in the role of those teams within enterprises. Large-scale and high-profile security breaches have become more common as company data establishes itself as a valuable commodity on the black market. As such, enterprises are now dedicating more IT resources than ever before to protect data integrity.

Brains, not brawn: Fewer companies than ever before are shackled to the tyranny of the volume play: producing vast quantities of goods to reap razor-thin margins. Instead,
manufacturing has been freed to search for the next big idea – and many of them.
What’s empowering this idea revolution: automated processes, new technologies at the ready, and a thorough understanding of R&D’s costs and contributions?
Realizing that there is strength in numbers, companies are creating virtual innovation hubs with valued partners, joining industry consortia, and opening up product
development to crowdsourcing.
What’s common to all: Companies are drawing closer to epicenters of talent, demand, and supply and moving faster than ever to commercialize great ideas.
Are you ready?

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

Cylance commissioned AV-TEST to perform an advanced threat prevention test of enterprise endpoint protection software. The testing methodology was jointly developed to provide additive testing to the commodity antivirus protection tests currently produced by AV-TEST. CylancePROTECT® was tested against five competitor endpoint products from Kaspersky, McAfee, Sophos, Symantec, and Trend Micro. The tests were performed in December 2016 and January 2017. This report contains the results of four test cases. The primary goal was to show the detection and prevention capabilities of new and unknown malicious executables. Read more in the AV-TEST report.
In the past decade, procurement and finance executives have become generally aware of the potential impact of supplier insolvencies, supply disruptions, commodity pricing volatility and the impact that these-not to mention a range of other dangers lurking within their supply chain can have on their business.
Stop to think about how – and how often – your business interacts with customers. Every day, with each interaction, data is created. What percentage of the data generated by these interactions are you using? There are so many channels for interaction, like social media, call centers, sales staff, help and support resources, marketing and campaigns.
Typically, organizations believe that they are using only a small fraction of it effectively – at best, upwards of 10 percent of all the available data. Why? One reason relates to the difficulties in collecting all this data. This limitation is beginning to wane as commodity hardware becomes increasingly popular for big data storage. But another major inhibitor to examining all customer data has been the inability to examine millions, or even billions, of data points that constitute the customer picture. And much of this is now in the form of unstructured text inputs.
Want to get even more value from your Hadoop implementation? Hadoop is an open-source software framework for running applications on large clusters of commodity hardware. As a result, it delivers fast processing and the ability to handle virtually limitless concurrent tasks and jobs, making it a remarkably low-cost complement to a traditional enterprise data infrastructure. This white paper presents the SAS portfolio of solutions that enable you to bring the full power of business analytics to Hadoop. These solutions span the entire analytic life cycle – from data management to data exploration, model development and deployment.
With the advent of a new globally-based economy, process manufacturers face significant challenges. Rapidly shifting markets, more empowered buyers, increasing regulation, commodity volatility, and margin pressures, and the effects of a credit crunch bring a “new normal” of constant volatility, variability, and variety to today’s landscape. In order to survive, process manufacturers need to become far more flexible, risk aware, and responsive to generate healthy revenues and profits. But above all else, they need to understand the importance of finding the right software application to drive maximum return on their investment.

Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.
