It is all about clouds: private, public, or a combination.
85% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy, as per the
RightScale 2017 State of the Cloud Report. Most enterprises
today have one or more application projects utilizing public
cloud infrastructure providers.
Having a data management strategy for hybrid cloud is a
critical business need today.
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.

As organizations increasingly rely on cloud services and SaaS applications to streamline business practices, the familiar paradigm of the network perimeter has dissolved, leaving a porous and ever-changing digital estate in its wake. While the benefits of cloud computing will ensure that migrations continue apace, the unique security challenges presented by the cloud will not only require a more agile mindset, but also self-learning technologies that can move at the speed of cloud deployments and spot subtle deviations indicative of a threat, while providing complete, real-time visibility across the digital business. Darktrace’s world leadership in the field of artificial intelligence for cyber security makes it the most effective and proven solution to detect unprecedented threats and anomalous cyber-incidents in the cloud. Whether faced with an insider threat, an attacker targeting sensitive data in test containers, or a significant misconfiguration that could be exploited in the fut
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists
Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.

Technology has fundamentally changed the way we live. Access to data and information anytime, anywhere is no longer a luxury—it is a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives. For IT organizations, this means pressure has never been greater to deliver higher-quality applications more often, enabling companies to stay relevant and seize digital business opportunities.
Cloud-native is an approach to building applications that takes advantage of cloud computing models and DevOps principles to make the delivery of new features and services faster and more flexible. With a cloud-native strategy, organizations can begin the culture, process, and technology changes needed to meet new demands and become an IT organization that can deliver business innovation faster.

The Edge Completes the Cloud
Edge computing delivers the decentralized complement to today’s hyperscale cloud and legacy data centers. To maximize application potential and user experience, enterprise architects and technology innovation leaders need to plan distributed computing solutions.
Enabling this thinking is that although the cloud is becoming mainstream, that does not imply that all workloads will be placed in the cloud during the next decade or so. Technical incompatibilities, decades of embedded business logic in mainframe applications, government regulations and simple economics all conspire to keep some workloads out of the cloud, driving us toward a hybrid multi cloud future.

For some, having a Managed Service Provider (MSP) manage your workloads on cloud infrastructure requires strong justification internally and assistance around presenting an alternative view to a DIY approach. The physical costs are a bit easier to identify but what about the human costs - your 'hard to retain' IT talent that you want focused on evolving the business strategy rather than the heavy lifting a move to the cloud requires.
To help you justify a MSP solution to your stakeholders and support your internal business case for the associated human cost of a move to the cloud, download our comparison tool that outlines:

• Associated tasks/actions required to complete a move to the cloud - a comprehensive and direct comparative view of all tasks that IT are responsible for in a DIY v. MSP approach

As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive
marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security.
The Wide Area Network (WAN) is in the midst of a significant evolution. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) is the key factor driving this evolution and bringing along with it many transformational changes. SD-WAN has enabled several new WAN uses cases, such as enabling reliable, secure and high performance support of software-as-a-service (SaaS), cloud compute, cloud storage, cloud security and the ability to use non-deterministic Internet services to provide business-class transport. The traditional WAN architecture was ill equipped to support these new use cases.
As is usually the case with an emerging market, the first entrants into the SD-WAN space were start-ups. However, given the ability of SD-WAN to support both traditional and emerging WAN use cases, the market has recently been flooded with a range of vendors, solutions and technologies offering varying types of SD-WAN solutions.
While having differing types of solutions provided by numerous suppliers is potentially beneficial, it

Driven by easy-to-consume infrastructure and services, the adoption of public cloud surged in 2018. As a result, enterprises are seeking cost management solutions tools to curb waste, optimize cloud costs, and increase transparency. However, businesses must also factor the cost of licensed software into this equation, otherwise they may leave significant savings on the table.
The ""Software License Management as a Critical Part of Cloud Cost Optimization"" white paper by industry analyst Enterprise Management Associates explores the consequences of not considering software license costs when deploying in the cloud and pinpoints why it occurs.
