Networking involves at least two devices capable of being networked with at least one usually being a computer. The devices can be separated by a few meters (e.g. via Bluetooth) or thousands of kilometers (e.g. via the Internet).
How do you keep 130,000 guests safely entertained, fed, watered and informed in a sustainable way? Roskilde Festival knew that the critical insights lay hidden in huge volumes of real-time data.
The Copenhagen Business School used IBM technologies to build a cloud big data lab that correlates information from multiple sources, delivering valuable insight for planning and running the festival.

SAP se asoció con IDC para encuestar a tomadores de decisiones PyMEs de todo el mundo para descubrir cómo la nueva tecnología está transformando su negocio. Vea cómo un mundo cambiante puede ser un cambio para mejor.
In our 21-criteria evaluation of the dynamic case management (DCM) market, we identified the 14 most significant software vendors — Appian, bpm’online, Column Technologies, DST Systems, Eccentex, IBM, Isis Papyrus, Lexmark Enterprise Software, MicroPact, Newgen Software, OnBase by Hyland, OpenText, Pegasystems, and TIBCO Software — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. The evaluation focused on providers’ adaptive, analytics, and mobile features, all critical to helping enterprises tackle increasing volumes of varied and unstructured work. This report helps enterprise architecture (EA) professionals select the best providers to meet their unique needs.
In a Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, compute, networking, and shared storage are delivered from Dell 13G PowerEdge servers powered by Intel Xeon processors, which enables a pay-as-you-go, aff?ordable model to cost-effectively operate at high performance.
Today’s enterprise leaders are looking for a way to make apps run faster, IT management cheaper, and provisioning easier. The advent of hyper-converged software (HCS) has meant that organizations can now get much more out of their hardware than ever before. New data center options are emerging that save time, space and money — creating an industry pivot and a new focus on hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI).
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.

How do you maintain the security and confidentiality of your organization’s data in a world in which your employees, contractors and partners are now working, file sharing and collaborating on a growing number of mobile devices? Makes you long for the day when data could be kept behind firewalls and employees were, more or less, working on standardized equipment. Now, people literally work on the edge, using various devices and sending often unprotected data to the cloud. In the 24 x 7 BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) time frame in which people now work, they also expect data recovery and access to be lightning fast, and expediency, rather than security, is the driver.
This dramatic shift to this diversified way of working has made secure backup, recovery and sharing of data an exponentially more difficult problem to solve. The best approach is to start with a complete solution that can intelligently protect, manage and access data and information across users, heterogeneous devices and infrastructure from a single console - one that can efficiently manage your data for today's mobile environment and that applies rigorous security standards to this function.
Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach.
This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.
Data conversations continue to change as all businesses are trying to figure out today's reality of the move to the cloud, anywhere/anytime computing, and the explosive growth of data. These trends have drastically reshaped the IT industry and data management forever. With continued market innovations in storage, cloud, and hyper-converged infrastructures, there are six key modern IT needs that are increasingly the focus of CIO and technology leaders.
Enterprises today increasingly turn to array-based snapshots and replication to augment or replace legacy data protection solutions that have been overwhelmed by data growth. The challenge is that native array snapshot tools – and alternative 3rd party solutions – have varying degrees of functionality, automation, scripting requirements, hardware support and application awareness. These approaches can add risk as well as administrative complexity and make it more difficult to realize the full potential of snapshots – whether in single disk vendor estates or in heterogeneous storage environments.
This checklist will enable you to build a shortlist of the 'must have' features needed for snapshots to deliver exactly what you require in your application environment or Private Cloud.
The cloud is changing everything. It’s transforming IT organizations with agility and efficiency like never before, enabling them to realize new IT-as-a-Service delivery models. Yet, with change also comes new challenges. Read more to see how you can solve them so that you can realize the full potential of your next cloud project.

Understanding security analytics can be a daunting job. It is more than just analyzing log files but it is less than a full-blown information security platform. In fact, according to Anton Chuvakin, research vice president for security and risk management at Gartner, it is not yet even a “market,” but rather still just a ”concept” that has yet to define best practices.
In a multi-database world, startups and enterprises are embracing a wide variety of tools to build sophisticated and scalable applications. IBM Compose Enterprise delivers a fully managed cloud data platform so you can run MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, RethinkDB, RabbitMQ and etcd in dedicated data clusters.
The database you pick for your next application matters now more than ever. It can be difficult, and oftentimes impossible, to quickly join today's data into the relational model. Learn how a NoSQL database can act as a viable alternative to or compliment an existing relational database.
Once you know that a document oriented database is the best database for your application, you will have to decide where and how you'll deploy the software and its associated infrastructure. Download this white paper for an outline of the deployment options available when you select IBM® Cloudant® as your JSON store.
