There’s some banter about IBM Power Systems not being optimized to
run Oracle software. That simply isn’t true. In fact, IBM has engineers
on-site at Oracle working side-by-side with them to enable, optimize,
certify, and continually deliver solutions to our tens of thousands of
Cloud has evolved from a technological innovation to an integral part of business. Companies in
every industry are investing in Digital Transformation initiatives to evolve and grow; often, cloudbased platforms are foundational elements of these transformations, as businesses increasingly seek the
flexibility and agility to roll out new software services in days or weeks, versus months or years.
Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.

Car-sharing, ride-sharing and ride-hailing aren’t
new. Uber and other personal mobility services
have redefined how people move from place to
place. And now these services are beginning to
redefine traditional car ownership itself. As people
move from one vehicle to another, their personal
information and preferences need to follow them,
so the car they use feels like their own. Blockchain is
defined as a shared, immutable ledger, and it can
address many of the challenges that new types of
personal mobility present.
In Forrester's evaluation of the emerging market for conversational computing platforms, we identified the seven most significant providers — Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nuance Communications, Oracle, and Rulai — in the category and evaluated them. This report details our findings about how each vendor scored against nine criteria and where they stand in relation to each other. Application developers should use this review to select the right partners for their conversational computing platform needs.
Over the years, IBM Resilient customers have increased
their IR sophistication at various levels across a spectrum
of maturity. Maturity levels are often necessitated by industry,
available resources, or experience, but most IBM Resilient
customers continually look to evolve their IR function into
a more advanced phase.
Security leaders across all industries face mounting
challenges. Cyberattacks are continually growing in
volume, complexity, and sophistication, and incident
response (IR) teams are pushed to the limit of their time,
skill, and resources. Additionally, the average Security
Operation Center (SOC) uses more than 75 different
security tools – making full visibility nearly impossible
and integrating those tools challenging as well.
Digital transformation is poised to change the supply chain more
profoundly than any other functional area and more dramatically than at
any point in its history in terms of driving efficiency and resiliency to
disruption. In the context of the challenges facing supply chains, both now
and in the future, it becomes clear that the old ways of working will not
suffice and that even best-in-class performance today is unlikely to be good
enough in the future. It is the view of IDC that the supply chain must
become a "thinking" supply chain, one that is intimately connected to all
data sources, enabled with comprehensive and fast analytics, openly
collaborative through cloud-based commerce networks, conscious of
cyberthreats, and cognitively interwoven. According to IDC supply chain research, technology is emerging as a prime
driver of change, particularly artificial intelligence, blockchain, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Digital business is changing business models – and how we conduct business.
It is both connecting and blurring the lines between the digital and physical worlds.
It is changing how businesses communicate, transact and interact with customers,
suppliers and partners. And it is accelerating the pace of business, in a world
already operating 24/7.
The discipline of data quality assurance ensures that data is "fit for purpose" in the context of existing business operations, analytics and emerging digital business scenarios. It covers much more than just technology. It includes program management, roles, organizational structures, use cases and processes (such as those for monitoring, reporting and remediating data quality issues). It is also linked to broader initiatives in the field of enterprise information management (EIM), including information governance and master data management (MDM)
IBM has established a global
readiness programme tasked with
identifying the key impacts of the
GDPR across IBM’s business and
preparing IBM’s internal processes
and commercial offerings for
compliance with the GDPR.
It is breathing life into our existing energy resources
and creating new opportunities.
Better use of data has visible, tangible and immediate results.
It is helping energy companies become safer, more reliable
and more efficient.
This is good for both our wallets and our planet.

A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment? Equally important, how, when, and by whom are these tools used most effectively?
