What happened to Moore’s Law? Why is Oracle releasing a new SPARC processor with fewer cores and threads? The SPARC S7’s core processors are 50 percent to 100 percent more efficient than x86 processors. SPARC S7 delivers up to 10 times more-efficient data analytics and machine learning than x86-based systems. The new SPARC S7 is available in servers, an engineered system, and a cloud service at the same price as the Oracle Cloud x86 Compute service. The SPARC S7 processor makes it possible to build powerful, scalable, and cost-effective systems be it for application scale-out, on premise or public cloud.
Customer relationship management (CRM) systems are being implemented by a variety of companies looking for a competitive advantage in the global marketplace. Without customer loyalty, many companies won’t be able to thrive and grow. Today’s consumers are more demanding because they have a greater variety of choices, including doing business on the Internet and via automated phone systems. Many expect access to customer service 24 hours a day.
While many enterprise architecture (EA) programs may be less than effective or threatened by extinction, the EA discipline is still an important set of skills and processes that improve IT decision-making and CIO effectiveness. Yet, after decades of architecting systems, the advent of several EA frameworks, and the many definitions available for the term EA, we still strive to understand what EA is, what it does, and what it looks like when it is successful.
Data centers are large, important investments that, when properly designed, built, and operated, are an integral part of the business strategy driving the success of any enterprise. Yet the central focus of organizations is often the acquisition and deployment of the IT architecture equipment and systems with little thought given to the structure and space in which it is to be housed, serviced, and maintained. This invariably leads to facility infrastructure problems such as thermal “hot spots”, lack of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) rack power, lack of redundancy, system overloading and other issues that threaten or prevent the realization of the return on the investment in the IT systems.

To develop the visibility, agility and speed to deal with advanced threats, traditional security strategies for monitoring, often based around security information and event management (SIEM) systems need to evolve into a central nervous system for large-scale security analytics. In particular, four fundamental capabilites are required:
1. Pervasive visibility
2. Deeper analytics
3. Massive scalability
4. Unified view

We will go over a brief introduction of what workforce analytics is, and take a look at why it is sometimes so difficult to get the information we need out of our HR or Business Intelligence systems. We will also dive into the important metrics we should consider as HR professionals and what metrics will ultimately drive your business forward.
Threats and vulnerabilities are a way of life for IT admins. This paper focuses on how McAfee's Vulnerability Manager and McAfee e Policy Orchestrator provide IT Admins with powerful and effective tool for identifying and re-mediating systems.
A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods. Although evaporative cooling, whether through traditional towers or “advanced” adiabatic cooling systems (aka swamp coolers), remain highly effective cooling methods, when you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.

If you are a healthcare professional, then you and your organization are caught between the horns of compliance and improving the patient experience. With the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) now in full effect, the days of lax enforcement are over. First-time penalties or violations can reach up to $250,000. The transition to EMR/EHR use, along with all of the systems and equipment upgrading that entails, will be done and done well – or else. Penalties can also extend to your organization’s business associates.

In the wake of data hacks and privacy concerns, enterprises are working extra hard to make sure they secure customer data from external threats. But what about securing data internally? Organizations unknowingly leave a big security hole in their own systems when they fail to have structured internal processes to handle access requests for employees, which could have disastrous implications for data security.
A leading US bank sought to move its internal applications to a secure system for a standard and consistent access rights experience. See how Infosys helped and the five key takeaways from the project.

Research suggests that up to half of the investment your organization is making in Learning & Development (L&D) is being wasted. Employees unfortunately lose up to 75% of the information they receive through traditional L&D approaches (including learning management systems, episodic trainings, and workshops) — an effect known as the training transfer problem. In this report, discover the five critical requirements for effective behavior change and leadership development.

Asia is well positioned to continue its role as an innovation incubator and an important market for new products and services. Harvard Business Review articulates how the three key factors of People, Policies and Resources contribute to Asia’s innovation ecosystems, and shares how companies like Intel, Micron, Medtronic have been innovating for Asia from Singapore.
While the cloud can be a disruptive force, this global survey, conducted by Harvard Business Review and sponsored by Oracle, shows it is no longer a divisive one. The cloud is emerging as a unifying force that’s forging tighter collaboration between business and IT managers to drive innovation. The survey debunks three myths around implementing a public and/or private cloud strategy, including whether corporate systems need public cloud app data and how aligned IT and business are when it comes to the cloud.

Managing web security in an increasingly challenging threat landscape. Cybercriminals have increasingly turned their attention to the web, which has become by farther predominant area of attack. Small wonder. Those who would do harm to our computer systems for profit or malice always manage to focus their efforts on our most vulnerable weak spots. Today, that is the web, for a wide number of reasons.
Machine learning offers the depth, creative problem-solving capabilities, and automation to help security organizations gain significant ground against attackers. It’s a powerful tool for processing massive amounts of data for the purpose of malware classification and analysis, especially for unknown threats. Through supervised learning, human researchers can continually develop new training models that expand the understanding and competency of machine learning systems.
