If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem.
Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.
Si votre entreprise ne déroge pas à la règle, vous êtes aux prises avec différents défis liés au stockage de données. Dans une enquête annuelle de Frost & Sullivan menée auprès de décideurs informatiques, la croissance du stockage a été répertoriée parmi les défis majeurs des centres de données au cours des cinq dernières années2 . Étant donné que les entreprises collectent, répliquent et stockent un nombre toujours croissant de données, la simple acquisition d'une capacité de stockage suffisante constitue un problème.
Wie die meisten Unternehmen werden auch Sie vermutlich mit der Datenspeicherung zu kämpfen haben. In einer jährlichen Umfrage von Frost & Sullivan unter IT-Entscheidungsträgern wurde das Speicherwachstum als eine der größten Herausforderungen der letzten fünf Jahre für das Rechenzentrum genannt.2Da Unternehmen exponentiell mehr Daten als je zuvor sammeln, replizieren und speichern, ist schon der einfache Erwerb ausreichender Speicherkapazitäten ein Problem.
Hinzu kommt nicht zuletzt, dass Unternehmen von ihren gespeicherten Daten mehr erwarten. Daten werden mittlerweile als kostbares Firmenkapital und Möglichkeit gesehen, sich von den Wettbewerbern zu differenzieren: Sie sollen neue Geschäftsmodelle, neue Umsatzchancen, bessere Informationen, optimierte Betriebsabläufe und niedrigere Kosten bringen. Angesagte Trends wie das Internet der Dinge und Big Data-Analysen generieren so schnell neue Marktchancen, dass IT-Organisationen kaum noch Schritt halten können.

To free up staff resources to focus on strategic business initiatives, many IT leaders are considering engaging a partner to handle ongoing data center maintenance and optimization. But, too often, data center management services fall short of expectations. Standard care services may be limited in scope, and may not support the range of legacy hardware already in the data center. Conversely, complex managed or outsourced services may involve a costly, fully-customized engagement, in which costs are unpredictable, and control is wrested away from the enterprise. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—many data center management service providers seem to lack the innovative spark that will ensure continuous improvement to data center operations.
It seems strange to think that just a few years ago, the IT department was considered a supplier to the organization. Today, IT leaders are at the forefront of their companies’ march into the digital age. Technology is now recognized as a key enabler for achieving strategic business goals, including revenue growth, market expansion, and customer satisfaction; and IT leaders have risen to the challenge of simultaneously running the organization while identifying and leveraging innovative solutions that can drive growth.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,
from every sector. Independent software vendors, or ISVs, are pressured by increased competition to deliver
their applications faster, with greater functionality and ease of
Malicious botnets present multiple challenges to enterprises — some threaten security, and others merely impact performance or web analytics. A growing concern in the bot environment is the practice of credential stuffing, which capitalizes on both a bot’s ability to automate repeat attempts and the growing number of online accounts held by a single user. As bot technologies have evolved, so have their methods of evading detection. This report explains how the credential stuffing exploit challenges typical bot management strategies, and calls for a more comprehensive approach.
