When embarking on the AI journey, however, it is critical to understand that data is the heart of any effective AI algorithm. So, for any enterprise looking to harness the promise of AI, the first question to ask is quite simply, “is my data ready?”

"Safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in today’s assumed- breach world.
Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ
“More than 70 percent of cyber attacks target small businesses," according to a National Cyber Security Alliance estimate. Yet 68 percent of small business owners in a recent survey seemed oblivious to the threat. Why the disconnect? What should they be doing to protect their business-critical systems and data? How can small businesses wring maximum value from their cybersecurity investments? Where do AI-based endpoint protection, detection, and response platforms fit into the mix?

The move to data-centric business models is geared to enable organizations to turn their data into data capital. Because of the more stringent performance, scalability, availability, flexibility, and management requirements of the data-centric model, these organizations must modernize their storage and data protection infrastructure through the process of IT transformation. This white paper defines data capital, describes how boosting data capital is a critical ingredient for competitive differentiation, and discusses the implications for data storage and data protection infrastructure. It then turns to an overview of the Dell EMC storage and data protection portfolio, exploring the benefits these solutions offer to organizations interested in crafting the most effective infrastructure to maximize the value of data capital.
Dell EMC Transformation powered by Intel®
Pursuing agility to truly impact business transformation requires embracing data center modernization as a core competency. Crucial to this is having the most up-to-date IT infrastructure to support the scale and complexity of a changing technology landscape. Companies must embrace this imperative by adopting software-defined data center principles, embracing modernization, and automating their IT management processes. Those that do will propel business innovation and deliver superior customer experiences with fast, secure, and reliable business technology.

The digital era has ushered in a proliferation of data that powers modern businesses. When leveraged properly, organizations are seeing the potential of data to drive better outcomes across all aspects of their business. Using data to support different workflows, analytics, and activities transforms it into data capital — a digital asset that will drive value for the business. The extent to which an enterprise aligns its organization around this data capital mindset — in both the way they use data and the way they invest in data technology — can have lasting impacts on the success of the business.
In February 2019, Dell EMC and Intel commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate whether the ability to harness and apply data and analytics at every opportunity is fast becoming a prerequisite for success. To test this, Forrester conducted a global survey of 516 IT decision makers. The survey found that companies with more mature data capital practices — leveraging more data types, managin
