The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems.

Change is inevitable. Any successful business manager knows their organization must continually evolve to stay relevant and competitive. Whether it’s the packaged goods company that has reached the limits of its market, or the financial giant integrating a new software platform, or the global corporation building teams, adaptability is imperative. Having resilient employees that are open to change and better equipped to cope with stress is key.
But it may surprise you to learn who among your employees will weather the storm and who won’t. The Chief Technology Officer? Or the lead on the innovation project? Your top analyst? While some managers understandably assume that their highest earning, most highly educated employees are all highly resilient, they may need to think again.
A study from meQuilibrium, the only clinically validated resilience building program on the market today, conducted by behavioral scientist Wendy Lynch, Ph.D., and psychologist Andrew Shatté, Ph.D., shows that a

At its Build conference in May, Microsoft took the wraps off Cosmos DB, the new incarnation of its
existing cloud-based Azure DocumentDB NoSQL database. With a nod to the dramatic, Microsoft
terms Cosmos DB as its biggest database bet since SQL Server; it is positioning it as its flagship
cloud database, suited for use cases ranging from security and fraud detection, to IoT (consumer and
industrial), personalization, e-commerce, gaming, social networks, chats, messaging, bots, oil and gas
recovery and refining, and smart utility grids. Cosmos DB is a good example of how cloud platform
providers are rethinking databases for scalable, elastic environments and commodity infrastructure.
The platform that is most comparable is Google Cloud Spanner, but each of these databases is
engineered for different purposes: Cosmos DB as a globally distributed operational database and
Spanner as a globally distributed SQL-supporting OLTP database.
The highlights of Cosmos DB include its flexibility in

Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic
Impact™ (TEI) study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI)
enterprises may realize by shifting some or all their management and
operations from on-premises, hosted, and outsourced implementations to
Azure’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering. The purpose of this
study is to give readers a framework to evaluate the potential financial
impact, or ROI, of leveraging Azure IaaS for their organizations. Benefits
gained by interviewed customers that migrated or re-architected some or
all workloads from on-premises to IaaS include:
› Greater revenue opportunities from business-to-business (B2B) and
customer web channels with a solution that is more mobile and reliable,
and meets scale and seasonality needs.
› Increased profits from those revenues.
› Improved production efficiency.
› Reduced datacenter, IT resource, and outsourcing costs.
