For businesses in just about any industry and of any size, sensitive assets continue to be exposed, proving all too susceptible to attacks, breaches, and data loss. While these incidents can be costly for any organization, they’re particularly devastating for businesses that manage cardholder data. Beyond the immediate penalties associated with remediation, forensics, and brand damage, these organizations can also be hit with fines levied by the Payment Card Issuers if they are found to have been non-compliant.

For companies looking to build their own cloud storage infrastructure, including enterprise IT organizations and cloud service providers or cloud hosting providers, the decision to use cloud and cloud storage for the delivery of IT services is best made by starting with the knowledge and experience gained from previous work. This white paper gathers into one place the essentials of a scale-out storage reference architecture coupled with a real world example from the Cloudian support organization that is using the Cloudian HyperStore appliances and the Hortwonworks Hadoop Data Platform to analyze Big Data logs and troubleshoot customer issues.
Data centers have been designed for years with the same hierarchical and expensive network design. But as the modern data center evolves to a scale-out, dynamic and virtualized shared services platform.
Cloud backup is increasingly the preferred data protection option for many organizations.

Marketing organizations are often limited in their ability to progress marketing tactics from single channel to cross-channel and real-time customer engagement. While marketing organizations might have a robust customer engagement strategy in place, often times there is a gap between their strategy and their ability to execute, with the right personalization and context that customers prefer. Over 62 percent of customers are always-on and readily addressable, but marketers aren’t implementing the right strategies to reach them.
This eBook discusses data-driven marketing tactics that can help marketers mind the gap – bridging customer strategy and ability to execute, with the right personalization and context that customers prefer.
While they’re intensifying, business-data challenges aren’t new. Companies have tried several strategies in their attempt to harness the power of data in ways that are feasible and effective. The best data analyses and game-changing insights will never happen without the right data in the right place at the right time. That’s why data preparation is a non-negotiable must for any successful customer-engagement initiative. The fact is, you can’t simply load data from multiple sources and expect it to make sense. This white paper examines the shortcomings of traditional approaches such as data warehouses/data lakes and explores the power of connected data.
The growth of virtualization has fundamentally changed the data center and raised numerous questions about data security and privacy. In fact, security concerns are the largest barrier to cloud adoption. Read this e-Book and learn how to protect sensitive data and demonstrate compliance.
Virtualization is the creation of a logical rather than an actual physical version of something. such as a storage device, hardware platform, operating system, database or network resource. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving resilience, scalability and performance and lowering costs. Virtualization is part of an overall trend in enterprise IT towards autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on an activity or set of activities. This means organizations use or pay for computing resources only as they need them.
Electronic health records (EHRs) are necessary, but were not designed to anchor population health management (PHM). This is partly because they lack semantic interoperability, which is the ability of disparate information systems to share data and enable communications among users in a meaningful way.
This paper explains how an approach that includes a care collaboration platform can manage population health by aggregating and normalizing the necessary data.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
Today's mobile landscape is very much a moving target. IT managers must keep track of all types of devices and platforms, hundreds if not thousands of applications and a threat landscape that changes by the minute. In this ever-changing environment, IT staff often find themselves drowning in mobile minutiae, overwhelmed by mountains of endpoint data but unable to extract meaning from it or make business decisions based on it.
The tactical challenge of keeping infrastructure and business data secure while keeping workers productive each day takes precedence. And even then, IT managers can find themselves choosing between security and productivity as they decide how best to spend limited time and resources.
This whitepaper will guide you how to get deep visibility into relevant endpoint data within the platform, granting actionable intelligence that can have a measurable impact on your organization.
Enterprises routinely claim to be focused on the customer experience, yet few really keep that promise. What’s in the way? Fragmentation and complexity in both customer data and customer-facing processes. IIA spoke with Wilson Raj, Global Director of Customer Intelligence, and Jonathan Moran, Customer Intelligence Product Marketing at SAS Institute Inc. about how organizations can leverage technology platforms and analytics to become more completely and genuinely customer-centric – making connections in the right way, at the right time, and on the right device.
Data professionals now have the freedom to create, experiment, test and deploy different methods easily – using whatever skill set they have – all within one cohesive analytics platform.

New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.
