Is your data architecture up to the challenge of the big data era? Can it manage workload demands, handle hybrid cloud environments and keep up with performance requirements? Here are six reasons why changing your database can help you take advantage of data and analytics innovations.
Fear of data misuse has led to both general and industry-specific data-privacy regulations worldwide that many organizations now must meet, and it’s important to embrace their requirements. The role of data-holding organizations has increasingly shifted to being stewards of information, in particular in the United States and the European Union (EU). And failure to comply with regulations can mean not only reputational damage, but substantial fines and even jail time. Just meeting compliance mandates, though, may not help you actively spot and stop a data breach.
While many organizations have acknowledged the importance of digitally transforming their businesses and processes to deliver speed and agility, most are just starting their cloud journey.

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.

The increased mobility of the workforce is changing the way we work. Business users want the flexibility to share and collaborate on content that drives their business while IT needs to ensure the security of that data, no matter where it goes. An effective enterprise collaboration solution must consider people, processes and technologies to be effective, but where to begin?
This comprehensive Buyer’s Guide offers guidance on how to develop your organization’s requirements with regard to:
• Risk management – avoiding data breaches and loss of information that can result in non-compliance
• Business productivity - allowing for secure collaboration while enabling teams to work anywhere on any device
• IT efficiency - supporting the full breadth of external business content requirements while integrating with existing applications and protocols

Information management is getting harder. Organizations face increasing data volumes, more stringent legal and regulatory record-keeping requirements, stricter privacy rules, increasing threat of breaches and decreasing employee productivity. Companies are also finding that their old-fashioned, legacy archive strategies are increasingly ineffective. This is driving many organizations to rethink their approach, developing more modern Information Governance strategies.
Using CA Live API Creator, you can execute business policies using Reactive Logic. You write simple declarative rules defining relationships across data fields, and they’re automatically enforced when changes occur—just like formulas in a spreadsheet.
Over the last several years CA Technologies has acquired a number of companies and their respective products, to augment its continuous delivery suite and, especially, its DevTest portfolio. In particular, it has recently acquired Grid-Tools and Rally Software. Bloor Research has been asked to explore how Grid Tools’ products – now known as CA Test Data Manager (formerly Datamaker and CA Datafinder) and CA Agile Requirements Designer (formerly Agile Designer) expand and augment the capabilities provided by CA Service Virtualization (previously iTKO’s LISA) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally), making the whole greater than the sum of the parts.
One way to shift testing practices earlier in your software lifecycle is by using multi-layered visual models to specify requirements in a way where all ambiguity is inherently removed. With unambiguous and complete requirements, developers introduce less defects into their code and manual test cases, automated test scripts and required test data can be automatically generated based on the requirement, without manual intervention.

• Strategic innovation investments to gain competitive market advantage
This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to analyzing and mitigating the risks of migrating to PostgreSQL.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
A key decision criteria for adopting any technology is whether it can support requirements for existing applications while also fitting into longer term strategies and needs.
The first section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects of migrating from legacy and commercial solutions to PostgreSQL:
? Schema and code migration
? Data migration
? Application code migration
? Testing and evaluation

Who's afraid of the big (data) bad wolf? Survive the big data storm by getting ahead of integration and governance functional requirements
Today data volumes are exploding in every facet of our lives. Business leaders are eager to harness the power of big data but before setting out into the big data world it is important to understand that as opportunities increase ensuring that source information is trustworthy and protected becomes exponentially more difficult. This paper provides a detailed review of the best practices clients should consider before embarking on their big data integration projects.
No matter the vintage or sophistication of your organization’s data warehouse (DW) and the environment around it, it probably needs to be modernized in one or more ways. That’s because DWs and requirements for them continue to evolve. Many users need to get caught up by realigning the DW environment with new business requirements and technology challenges. Once caught up, they need a strategy for continuous modernization.
Any organization wishing to process big data from newly identified data sources, needs to first determine the characteristics of the data and then define the requirements that need to be met to be able to ingest, profile, clean,transform and integrate this data to ready it for analysis. Having done that, it may well be the case that existing tools may not cater for the data variety, data volume and data velocity that these new data sources bring. If this occurs then clearly new technology will need to be considered to meet the needs of the business going forward.
The data integration tool market was worth approximately $2.8 billion in constant currency at the end of 2015, an increase of 10.5% from the end of 2014. The discipline of data integration comprises the practices, architectural techniques and tools that ingest, transform, combine and provision data across the spectrum of information types in the enterprise and beyond — to meet the data consumption requirements of all applications and business processes.
The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.
