In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study refresh to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers.

Far from being a soft issue, trust underpins the
management of your digital business and digital
ecosystems. This report highlights how trust is
fundamental to your digital transformation. It
focuses on the role of trust in the B2B context
and analyzes the key technologies, processes,
and operational values that CIOs and their teams
must use to build and maintain trusted
The way that people and companies leverage IT is in
the process of a revolutionary change. To maintain a
competitive edge in the face of an unrelenting pace of
innovation, opportunity creation and environmental
turmoil, organizations must exploit the provisioning of
IT resources to facilitate new ways of doing business.
And whether you’re talking about the increase in mobile
technologies, the Internet of Things or some other transformative
technology, cloud is at the forefront and the
heart of this change
All of cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure is vulnerable to a wide range of risk and exposure from both physical
and cyber threats and perils. Sophisticated cyber individuals and groups exploit standalone and congregated
vulnerabilities to steal money and information, or disrupt, endanger and damage operations. The combination of wide
opportunity for crime in cyberspace and the ability to execute from geographically-dispersed locations has produced a
transformation of traditional criminal activities.
A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.
Take a look at the IT ecosystem of any company today and there’s a good chance you’ll find it includes offerings from several cloud services providers. That’s certainly the case at mid- to large-sized companies with at least 500 employees, according to a recent survey conducted by IDG Research.
The survey of 100 senior IT professionals found that 59% are already multi-cloud adopters — that is, using computing and storage services from two or more cloud providers. Another 31% of respondents say they plan to become multi-cloud organizations in the coming 12-24 months, with only 10% still in the “consideration” phase.
Across enterprises of all kinds, data is multiplying rapidly in both quantity and variety. Across multi-cloud environments, new sources are exponentially increasing the growing stream of information, including the Internet of Things, social media, mobile devices, virtual reality implementations and optical tracking.
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) framework seeks to create a
harmonized data protection framework across the European Union, and aims
to give back EU citizens control of their personal data by imposing stricter
requirements for those hosting and processing this data, anywhere in the
IBM is committed to putting data responsibility first and providing solutions
that are secure to the core for all customers. As such, IBM Cloud has fully
adopted the EU Data Protection Code of Conduct for Cloud Service providers
– meaning we agree to meet the entirety of its stringent requirements.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has arrived. Every company doing business with
European customers — regardless of location — must make considerable governance, people, process,
and technology changes to comply with the new rules. While companies have made progress, more work
remains. To succeed, they must tackle key challenges, including data identification, mapping, and access
management. Despite the work ahead, forward-looking businesses understand GDPR is an opportunity.
This is a transformation for a data-savvy world, with the potential to yield enhanced customer and
business benefits. Investment in solutions with data privacy, security, and compliance offerings that can
protect data no matter where it’s stored — on-premises and in the cloud — can ease companies along
their readiness journeys and help them achieve and sustain compliance from May 25, 2018, and onward
Trust can be viewed as a key factor amongst clients and service providers
working together towards preparing for readiness with the EU General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). These stringent regulations come into
force in May 2018 to ensure that personal data is processed adhering to strict
privacy and security requirements.
After moving traditional workloads to public cloud, most customers realize they must replace many of them with cloud-native alternatives to reap the full benefits. Technology product management leaders must deliver cloud-native offerings now to capture business opportunities and avoid irrelevancy.
Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.
Since data encryption is a core piece of any security strategy, start by talking with your CIO. This guide is designed to help you determine the right questions to ask your CIO to become better informed about your bank’s cybersecurity position.
The financial industry is experiencing a significant challenge when it comes to maintaining and
establishing trust in its relationships with clients. Customers battered by the constant barrage of
publicized data incursions and security breaches are highly sensitized to those signs in their own dealings.
They find it difficult to accept any disruption in either their business or their personal financial activities
and are easily frightened away from organizations that they perceive as risky.
