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

Continue reading this white paper to learn how CA Content-Aware IAM solutions help protect customers in the physical world and similarly protect virtual environments by controlling identities, access, and information usage.
Manufacturing suppliers range from approved vendors and contract manufacturers (CMs) who
only deliver materials and services to complex strategic partnerships. A transactional relationship based primarily on order fulfillment might work well for some companies. However, by taking a CM relationship to the next level of supplier-partner, organizations gain strategic benefits including cost savings, reduced risks, and optimized profits. The right cultural fit and the right-sized partner for your business can play a key role in building this long-term relationship.
Get free access ($195 value) to this Gartner research that identifies 12 commonly observed network security practices that reduce network availability, increase expenditure or risks, and alienate end users. CISOs should avoid these practices, and they can do so without sacrificing security posture or breaking the bank.

The scope and value that modern IT service delivery provides a business is increasing dramatically, according to a new research reportfrom Enterprise Management Associates (EMA).
And yet in some organizations legacy ITSM systems contribute significantly to reduced credibility for IT departments who fail to integrate with and support important business concerns. This lack of modern IT service delivery creates multiple issues for the enterprise, including:
Increasing divergence of IT and business performance
Rising costs due to service delivery complexity
Inability to measure and protect a business from potential risks
Informed by extensive research and two compelling deployment narratives, this report examines what EMA calls “next-generation ITSM” and its contributions toward optimizing changing IT and business requirements. EMA contrasts these advances with the risks of staying with legacy ITSM models and then evaluates and itemizes the risks of “doing nothing” by allowing legacy ITS
