Backup alone is not enough anymore. Businesses today must put a range of recoverability options in place. That’s why it is encouraging to see Carbonite, a data protection company with cloud and hybrid offerings, making fresh moves to help organizations evolve beyond legacy backup. Years ago, Carbonite pioneered cloud backup for endpoint devices. Then it expanded, buying EVault in 2015 and DoubleTake in 2017. Just as Carbonite has long been at the forefront of offering what people need from cloud-based data backup, it now appears to be just as intent on providing what IT organizations need—hybrid data protection media and mechanisms.

With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
Email is the primary communication system and file transport mechanism used in organizations of all sizes. Email systems generate enormous amounts of content that must be preserved for a variety of reasons, including:
-Compliance with local, state, federal and international statutory requirements
- Electronic discovery requirements and best practices
- Knowledge management applications
- Disaster recovery and business continuity
Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.

Compensation—whether hourly wages or annual salaries—is a talent attraction magnet, a general employee motivator, a retention technique and a measure for the health of your business (and the economy as a whole).
But there’s often confusion around salaries, both in what today’s accurate ranges actually are, and if every department within a company truly needs to evaluate compensation. Incorporating a strategic salary program that aligns with business goals requires a comprehensive understanding of the current labor landscape, and the role employee pay plays in every department within
This guide will discuss why compensation strategies should be discussed across departments, and how your company can address employee earnings today to help you maintain the right approach tomorrow.

This TDWI Checklist Report presents requirements for analytic DBMSs with a focus on their use with big data. Along the way, the report also defines the many techniques and tool types involved. The requirements checklist and definitions can assist users who are currently evaluating analytic databases and/or developing strategies for big data analytics.
New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.
Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo
In this report, we'll look at some of the top pressures that organizations are facing when it comes to optimizing their infrastructure for modern services and workloads, analyze the strategies taken by successful businesses and offer key recommendations for those organizations looking to become leaders in high performing IT infrastructures.
IT organizations today must work in an “and” world, rather than an “or” world to meet the demands of their users. In an “and” world, IT architectures and strategies leverage an ever-broadening variety of tools while still supporting and propelling a single strategy.

It’s no secret that today’s unprecedented data growth, data center consolidation and server virtualization are wreaking havoc with conventional approaches to backup and recovery. Here are five strategies for modern data protection that will not only help solve your current data management challenges but also ensure that you’re poised to meet future demands.
So what do end-users—companies in the process of building or upgrading their data centers today—think of the security problems they face? We conducted this survey to answer key questions about buyers’ plans for security in their data centers.
The world set a new record for data breaches in 2016,
with more than 4.2 billion exposed records, shattering the former record of 1.1 billion in 2013. But if 2016 was bad, 2017 is shaping up to be even worse. In the first six months of 2017, there were 2,227 breaches reported, exposing over 6 billion records and putting untold numbers of accounts at risk. Out of all these stolen records, a large majority include usernames and passwords, which are leveraged in 81 percent of hacking-related breaches according to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Faced with ever-growing concerns over application and data integrity, organizations must prioritize identity protection in their
security strategies. In fact, safeguarding the identity of users and managing the level of access they have to critical business applications could be the biggest security challenge organizations face in 2017.
