Security teams face sophisticated attacks that ‘hide in plain sight’ and often dwell in customer environments as long as 190 days1. And attackers increasingly employ stealthy techniques to move freely within a customer environment like using stolen credentials to masquerade as legitimate users. There has been a marginal decline in zero-day discoveries and an increase in ‘living off the land’ tactics that don’t rely on the traditional combination of vulnerabilities followed by malware. These tactics are more difficult to detect since they make use of legitimate tools.
After several years of relentless hardware and software innovation, the mainframe is at an
inflection point from being a supporting platform of transaction revenue to becoming a
source of revenue growth and innovation. Organizations are evolving toward what IDC calls
the “connected mainframe.” The platform is transforming from a revenue-supporting machine
into a revenue-generating machine and is increasingly playing a central role in organizations’
digital transformation (DX) journey. Key steps in achieving the connected mainframe require
organizations to modernize and integrate the platform with their internal and external
environments. IDC finds that these modernization and integration initiatives lead to new
business innovations, which in turn are driving revenue growth and improving organizational
Across enterprises of all kinds, data is multiplying rapidly in both quantity and variety. Across multi-cloud environments, new sources are exponentially increasing the growing stream of information, including the Internet of Things, social media, mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking.
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.

As more companies transform their infrastructures with hybrid cloud services, they require environments that protect the safety of their intellectual property, such as data and business rules. In addition, businesses need a set of hybrid cloud services that provides the best of both worlds: the elasticity and automatic provisioning of the public cloud with the economic viability of the private cloud. Welcome to IBM LinuxONE.
IBM Institute for Business Value report discussing how multicloud environments are proliferating in surveyed organizations, the benefits of multicloud management and an approach to managing multicloud environments
The increase in sophisticated, targeted security threats by
both external attackers and malicious insiders have made it
extremely difficult for organizations to properly protect
critical and sensitive information. The task of protecting these
assets has only grown harder as IT environments have become
more complex and widely distributed across geographic locations
and in the cloud.
Many recent high-profile breaches have one thing in common:
They were accomplished through the compromise of passwords.
In many cases, end-user passwords are initially hacked through
various social engineering techniques. Then permissions are escalated to gain access to more privileged accounts — the keys to the
kingdom. This unauthorized access can easily go undetected for
weeks or even months, allowing hackers to see and steal information at their convenience.
Unfortunately, many IT users lack a full understanding of how
privileged accounts function, as well as the risks associated
with their compromise an
This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t
As the generation that pioneered the social media persona, Gen Y aren’t known for fading into the background – the average Gen Yer juggles four different social media accounts, crafting individual personalities on each. But despite their desire to stand out, today’s young people are especially keen to work together; so much so that 40% would even pay out of their own pocket for social collaboration tools at work
Despite this, workplaces aren’t always giving them the tools they need to work effectively with one another. While 38% of Gen Y feel that outdated modes of collaboration obstruct a company’s ability to innovate, 71% say they face challenges using their company’s collaboration tools. As a result, they’re taking it upon themselves to create collaborative working environments, share innovative ideas and embrace the diversity of thought that comes along with it.

Application performance management (APM) is an IT discipline that continues to evolve as new technologies appear. The new wave of microservices architecture and containerization has led to what is referred to as cloud-native development, and this approach has one of the fastest adoption rates of any new technology we have witnessed. With cloud-native environments there is the need to monitor and manage these new types of applications, but the challenge is that they are quite different from traditional monolithic systems.
This report delves into what the differences are, how these affect how they are monitored, and how a new generation of vendors have stepped up and introduced novel solutions to meet these challenges. We also examine the incumbent leaders in the APM market that have transformed their solutions to expand and cover cloud-native environments.

Internet-of-things (IoT) is increasing in excitement across all industries as they look to provide innovation in their product and services, and monitor risks and costs in their business operations. But IoT is not a single technology. It is an ecosystem of human and non-human touchpoints that span across multiple technologies. This creates a dynamic and complex environment that is difficult to see and manage in scope.
The traditional monitoring approach of watching dashboards, responding to alerts, and manually analyzing doesn’t work anymore. Today’s hyper-dynamic, highly distributed IoT application environments have become way too complex and move too quickly. The volume, velocity, and variety of information is simply more than humans can keep up with using traditional tools.
