Welcome to Secure Hybrid Cloud For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition. The hybrid cloud is becoming the way enterprises are transforming their organizations to meet changing customer requirements. Businesses are discovering that in order to support the needs of customers, there is an imperative to leverage the highly secure IBM Z platform to support missioncritical workloads, such as transaction management applications. The Z platform has been transformed over the years. The combination of z/OS, LinuxONE, open APIs, and the inclusion of Kubernetes has made IBM Z a critical partner in the hybrid cloud world. Businesses can transform their IBM Z environments into a secure, private cloud. In addition, through IBM’s public cloud, businesses may take advantage of IBM Z’s security services to protect their data and applications.
More than 80% of organizations in Asia are not protected against today's threats. Many of them depend on security investments made years ago, which cannot defend against new and emerging threats. The arrival of new technologies including cloud computing, the Internet of Things, mobility, bring your own device (BYOD), and social media have massively increased attack surfaces and expanded the threat landscape.
New agile solutions are required that can address today's threats and enable organizations to adjust their security posture as the threat landscape evolves.
Download this whitepaper to know more about key recommendations including:
• Working with third parties to evaluate your current cybersecurity posture and identify vulnerabilities
• Upgrading and update your cybersecurity assets with a particular focus on ensuring that firewalls are upgraded
• Ensuring that your organization has a unified view of your assets and the threat environment

"Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms are a relatively new phenomenon, and they go far beyond
the remote monitoring systems of a prior generation. Three key features differentiate cloud-based
predictive analytics — data sharing, scope of monitoring, and use of artificial intelligence/machine
learning (AI/ML) to drive autonomous operations. To help familiarize the uninitiated with specifically
what types of value these systems can drive, IDC discusses them at some length in this white paper."

The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.
The success of every business is driven by the quality of its connections, whether with clients, employees, investors, suppliers, manufacturers or other key stakeholders. Increasingly, these relationships are measured through data-driven analytics, enhanced through video communication, and empowered through cloud computing and collaboration. As the volume of data grows, so do bandwidth requirements.
Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.

Very little data is available on how effectively enterprises are managing private cloud deployments in the real world. Are they doing so efficiently, or are they facing challenges in areas such as performance, TCO and capacity? Hewlett Packard Enterprise commissioned 451 Research to explore these issues through a survey of IT decision-makers and data from the Cloud Price Index.
Im heutigen Zeitalter bahnbrechender digitaler Neuerungen müssen Unternehmen agiler handeln, um Geschäftschancen nutzen zu können. Viele haben dabei auf die Cloud Computing-Technologie gesetzt, da sie darauf ausgerichtet ist, die Agilität zu verbessern, die Skalierbarkeit zu steigern und die Kosten zu senken. Bei der Umstellung auf die Cloud mussten viele Unternehmen aber feststellen, dass das damit verbundene Maß an Sicherheit, Compliance und Leistung ihren Anforderungen nicht in vollem Umfang gerecht wird. Bisher war man zudem allgemein der Meinung, dass eine Public Cloud kostengünstiger als eine Private Cloud ist. Heute wissen wir, dass dies nicht in allen Fällen zutrifft. Kluge Unternehmen haben erkannt, dass Hybrid IT, die sowohl externe als auch lokale Services umfasst, mehr Agilität ermöglicht.
The next wave of cloud storage innovation is upon us. It’s called multicloud.

Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.
