As we move further into the age of high availability and instant gratification we must adapt our business practices to this ever changing demand. Similar to most markets, data protection requires a far different product than it did at the turn of the century. “Out of sight, out of mind” is not an acceptable strategy for off-site backup.

Small and medium businesses cannot afford to lose their data. Research shows that even brief server failures can lead smaller businesses to shut their doors for good. In light of this, businesses need workable backup and disaster recovery plans. Until recently, however, most backup and disaster recovery solutions were aimed at large enterprise. Today, the environment is changing. Protecting data is becoming more and more important and new technologies are making backup and recovery strategies viable to smaller businesses.
TS Tech is an active, vibrant MSP in Pennsylvania. They have a wide variety of clients and operate with a fixed-rate business model. In order for them to get solid ROI, they have to use the best, most reliable technologies. When it comes to backup and disaster recovery, TS Tech president says StorageCraft ShadowProtect not only protects his clients, but saves him money by cutting down on backup and disaster recovery tickets.
There are many case studies with real data extolling the benefits of cloud computing and virtualization - the twin forces behind the transformation of the way companies of all shapes and sizes 'do' computing. But to take part in this information revolution, it's critical to have the right underpinnings. That means not only upgrading the decade-old Windows Server 2003 operating system software that still drives more than 12 million servers, but also upgrading the underlying hardware to ensure you realize all the benefits the software can deliver. The combination Windows Server 2012 and the latest Intel Xeon based server hardware should be part of an IT strategy for companies and departments looking to modernize their IT infrastructure. This checklist will identify 10 of the top issues driving the need for server OS software and hardware upgrades.

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.
Securing your infrastructure, your customer interactions and protecting
your data are critical to preserving your reputation and your bottom
line. Many cyber attacks remain undetected for up to eight months1
and can cost an organization an average of 11 million USD.2
Today’s cyber actors are becoming more sophisticated, agile and capable
of getting past any network security. Organizations must evolve, replacing
traditional defensive security strategies with a proactive, intelligence-driven
offense to prevent and disrupt these threats.
IBM® i2® Enterprise Insight Analysis is a next generation intelligence
solution that enables organizations to incorporate cyber threat hunting
into their security strategy and turn their defense into a proactive
offense.It helps organizations uncover critical insights about their
threats and threat actors so they can mitigate and counter more threats
with a combination of multi-dimensional visualte analysis capabilities
Security, network complexity and growing volumes of traffic are the top factors affecting enterprise network strategy, based on a recent IDG Research Services poll among IT leaders. Here’s what they’re planning to do about these issues
Cloud, social, big data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are increasingly central to business decisions as the pace of digitization accelerates. The impact of software-defined networking (SDN), virtualization, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure within the datacenter is substantial. These technologies add complexity but offer enticing opportunities for new business models, revenue streams, operating efficiencies, and agility that organizations must pursue if they want to remain competitive and viable. This pursuit requires businesses to keep up with current and emerging technologies and applications and transform the ways in which they conduct business. At the core of "keeping up" is an organization's datacenter strategy — with an associated technology and services strategy that will either create industry laggards or accelerate innovators.
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.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.

This paper looks at the critical connection between data analytics and the future of tax compliance. It shows how the ability to pinpoint the “right” cases can bring more efficiency—and more revenue—to tax agencies. It also confirms that tax agencies already have vital data at their fingertips; the challenge is to find new and better ways to put it to use. Finally, it describes how a cohesive compliance strategy demands an agile, balanced solution of people, processes, technology, and data.
