If you are an moving to or already using Office 365 then it’s essential for you to formulate a plan toward a risk-free cyber resilience experience. Cyber resilience requires you to prepare for the before, during and after an attack/outage/incident. Doing so will protect your organization from security threats, compliance concerns, unplanned outages and more. To mitigate concerns and form a resilient strategy you have to first KNOW the risks.
The right third-party solution can ensure email is protected against advanced cyberattacks and guarantee service availability SLA – all while leveraging your investment in Microsoft Office 365™.
But, what are the key areas of concern around Office 365 email you should be aware of?
Read what Microsoft Office Apps and Services MVP J. Peter Bruzzese has to say about the key features and functions you need to address security, data assurance and continuity for Office 365 email – and what to look for in a single solution that does it all.
Containers have become the new infrastructure
standard for development teams. While the “DIY
container approach” (un-orchestrated containers)
still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer
compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade
deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams
are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes
and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27%
adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019
according to the RightScale “2019 State of the Cloud
Report,” from Flexera. The same report also positions
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes
offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate.
Previously, containers were a technology deployed
by individual teams – and were typically used for
“application testing” in the enterprise world. Today,
many organizations are now not only seeing the
benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy
production applications, but also re-positioni
Informatica is a leader in Enterprise Cloud Data
Management, providing solutions that help
organizations optimize, transform, and analyze
their data. Informatica’s Intelligent Data Platform
is built on a microservices architecture, helping
organizations ensure their data is trusted, secure,
governed, accessible, timely, relevant, and
actionable on-premises or on the cloud.
By 2020, Gartner predicts 100% of new entrants to IT – and 80% of historical vendors –
will offer subscription-based business models to their customers. These organizations are
prioritizing the cloud over on-premises data centers and legacy software, so they can more
efficiently deliver highly available, scalable, and cost-effective service offerings.
To remain competitive, you need to modernize your approach to .NET development – and
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the ideal place to start.
This whitepaper will explore best practices for containerizing your Windows workloads on
AWS, including how to design your containers, which AWS services to leverage, and how
to modernize your existing .NET applications for the cloud.

From smartphones and cloud computing to ride-sharing services and electric cars, disruptive technology is changing the way we live – and nobody understands disruption better than startups. Whether they’re independent entities funded by VCs or emerging companies within the walls of a large corporation, startups recognize the power of technology to solve problems and improve lives, and they have been instrumental in challenging the status quo and shaping our society.
But startups can’t be expected to do it all alone. Lean operating budgets and a need to move quickly demand that these organizations make efficient use of their limited resources – and that means not “reinventing the wheel” when it comes to their underlying tech. By working with the right partner who can provide the right resources and expertise at the right time, startups are free to focus on what matters most: bringing their innovation to market.

Even with the greatest level of talent on your in-house legal team, you will at some point, need the services of external counsel. When an organization rates its outside law firms, selecting just the right data might be a challenge. Business leaders may not be lawyers, so it may be necessary to rely on the self-assessment of firms to determine the “health” of their programs.
But does it need to be that subjective? Hard data is an essential tool when it comes to performance evaluation. There are specific metrics organizations can use to evaluate law firm performance. While it may not be “all about the money,” these key metrics can provide insight into how your panel handles its work and the value of the results you receive.

Smartphones, smart cities, smart homes, smart cars—IoT has triggered a data explosion, and not every enterprise is prepared to handle it.
Beyond collecting and analyzing the increasing volume of data, organizations must figure out how to manage the velocity of that data, as well as how to integrate it with multiple data sources. And that’s just scratching the surface of the IoT challenge. To extract business value out of this inpouring of data, and to take full advantage of IoT boosted by new 5G technology, IT organizations must consider five key technologies.
In this ebook, you’ll learn about these five technologies and their benefits. To continue to develop and scale your IoT-driven applications, your infrastructure needs to be able to handle sensor data at velocity, keep data close to the edge, maintain 100% uptime, and make it easy to extract business value. The insights you’ll discover in this ebook will not only help you prepare your organization for this reality; they’ll also
In today’s environment, business continuity is a necessity. As organizations embrace digital transformation and turn to IT for almost all most critical operations, downtime can be crippling. Those that are able to tolerate technology failures transparently—so the business remains up and running— can drive dramatic gains in competitive advantage, customer engagement and business innovation.
However, achieving the highest levels of business continuity, with zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs), has been possible only for the largest companies and their most business-critical applications. The associated costs and complexity have simply been too much for most organizations to achieve those levels.
That is no longer the case.
This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked thi
Data is multiplying rapidly in quantity and variety for enterprises of all kinds. In multicloud environments, a range of data sources is exponentially increasing the stream of incoming information, from the Internet of Things and social media, to mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking. While organizations are readily investing in artificial intelligence (AI), most haven’t done due diligence to understand their data or ensure the quality of data needed to benefit from AI solutions. In many organizations, their data is inaccessible, unreliable, or non-compliant with data privacy and protection rules.
Data quality tools are vital for digital business transformation, especially now that many have emerging features like automation, machine learning, business-centric workflows and cloud deployment models. This Magic Quadrant assesses 15 vendors to help you make the best choice for your organization.
