Stay ahead of the evolving threats.
Organized crime is driving the rapid growth and sophisticated evolution of advanced threats that put entire website ecosystems at risk, and no organization is safe.
The stealthy nature of these threats gives cybercriminals the time to go deeper into website environments, very often with severe consequences.
The longer the time before detection and resolution, the more damage is inflicted. The risk and size of fines, lawsuits, reparation costs, damaged reputation, loss of operations, loss of sales, and loss of customers pile up higher and higher.
The complexity of website security management and lack of visibility across website ecosystems is further impacted by the fact that it is nearly impossible to know how and where to allocate resources.
Website security must be evolved in line with these growing threats and challenges.
Enterprise data protection has grown unwieldy, with systems from various vendors claiming to
protect all of an enterprise’s data—and none of them doing a particularly good job of addressing
mission-critical data recoverability requirements. It’s a situation that introduces risk and raises
concerns about IT’s ability to recover in a timely manner and without data loss from outages
caused by cybercrime, system failures, or human error.
An integrated strategy that focuses on the complete data recovery needs of an enterprise can
eliminate data loss, cut recovery times, and reduce IT complexity—while ensuring data security
and positioning the enterprise to seamlessly take advantage of the cloud.

As organizational needs change and workloads become increasingly distributed, a key realization is emerging: traditional approaches to backup and recovery may no longer be sufficient for many organizations. These companies may have discovered that their existing tools are not keeping pace with other advancements in their computing environments, such as scale-out storage systems and hyperconverged systems, which seek to reduce data center complexity and help manage surging storage costs.
DevOps allows teams to effectively build, test, release, and respond to your software. But creating an agile, data-driven culture is easier said than done. Developer and devops teams struggle with lack of visibility into application monitoring tools and systems, accelerated time-to-market pressure, and increased complexity throughout the devops lifecycle process. As a Splunk customer, how are you using your machine data platform to adopt DevOps and optimize your application delivery pipeline?

Organizations that create and deliver software — whether for their own IT operations, for the packaged applications market, or as the core of their final product, as in the systems space — must grapple not only with today’s competitive landscape, but also with increased complexity in their processes and supply chains. Many factors serve to complicate software delivery, but differentiation lies at the heart of managing this complexity. This smartpaper explores how effective quality management creates opportunities to deliver key business benefits, such as improved market share, higher customer satisfaction, and increased brand equity.
Databases tend to hold an organization’s most important information and power the most crucial applications. It only makes sense, then, to run them on a system that’s engineered specifically to optimize database infrastructure.
Yet some companies continue to run their databases on do-it-yourself (DIY) infrastructure, using
separate server, software, network, and storage systems. It’s a setup that increases risk, cost, complexity, and time spent deploying and managing the systems, given that it typically involves at least three different IT groups.
Embracing mobile devices, thin clients, new app delivery systems, and BYOD all represent a huge challenge to IT. The incredible amount of flexibility, productivity, and employee satisfaction that can be gleaned from the support of such initiatives is massive. However, this shift comes at a high price in terms of increased infrastructure cost and the increased complexity of managing it all.

For many years, traditional businesses have had a systematic set of processes and practices for deploying, operating and disposing of tangible assets and some forms of intangible asset. Through significant growth in our inquiry discussions with clients, and in observing increased attention from industry regulators, Gartner now sees the recognition that information is an asset becoming increasingly pervasive. At the same time, CDOs and other data and analytics leaders must take into account both internally generated datasets and exogenous sources, such as data from partners, open data and content from data brokers and analytics marketplaces, as they come to terms with the ever-increasing quantity and complexity of information assets. This task is clearly impossible if the organization lacks a clear view of what data is available, how to access it, its fitness for purpose in the contexts in which it is needed, and who is responsible for it.

The scope and value that modern IT service delivery provides a business is increasing dramatically, according to a new research reportfrom Enterprise Management Associates (EMA).
And yet in some organizations legacy ITSM systems contribute significantly to reduced credibility for IT departments who fail to integrate with and support important business concerns. This lack of modern IT service delivery creates multiple issues for the enterprise, including:
Increasing divergence of IT and business performance
Rising costs due to service delivery complexity
Inability to measure and protect a business from potential risks
Informed by extensive research and two compelling deployment narratives, this report examines what EMA calls “next-generation ITSM” and its contributions toward optimizing changing IT and business requirements. EMA contrasts these advances with the risks of staying with legacy ITSM models and then evaluates and itemizes the risks of “doing nothing” by allowing legacy ITS
