When the IASB and FASB issued a joint press release on May 28, 2014 1 announcing new revenue recognition standards for revenue from contracts with customers, the adoption deadline seemed a long way off. After pushback from companies across various industries, the implementation date was extended by one year, granting companies more time to update their policies and systems to adhere to the new standards.
As of May 25, 2018, organizations around the world—not just those based in the EU—need to be prepared to meet the requirements outlined within the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Those requirements apply to any organization doing business with any of the more than 700 million EU residents, whether or not it has a physical presence in the EU.
IBM® Security can help your organization secure and protect personal data with a holistic GDPR-focused Framework that includes software, services and GDPR-specific tools. With deep industry expertise, established delivery models and key insights gained from helping organizations like yours navigate complex regulatory environments, IBM is well positioned to help you assess your needs, identify your challenges and get your GDPR program up and running.
There’s no getting around it. Passed in May 2016, the European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the minimum standards of the Data Protection Directive, a 21-year-old system that allowed the 28 EU member states to set their own data privacy and security rules relating to the information of EU subjects. Under the earlier directive, the force and power of the laws varied across the continent. Not so after GDPR went into effect May 25, 2018.
Under GDPR, organizations are subject to new, uniform data protection requirements—or could potentially face hefty fines. So what factors played into GDPR’s passage?
• Changes in users and data. The number, types and actions of users are constantly increasing. The same is true with data. The types and amount of information organizations collect and store is skyrocketing. Critical information should be protected, but often it’s unknown where the data resides, who can access it, when they can access it or what happens once
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too.
Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data.
To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon.
Many clues are out there—and obvious.
The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and
users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses
and evade detection.
The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.
If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem.
Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.
In this paper, Stratecast discusses the technologies that are disrupting how business is conducted— and how they impact and are impacted by your data center infrastructure. We define the ideal IT environment, and present ways to achieve it with flexible, composable infrastructure.
It seems strange to think that just a few years ago, the IT department was considered a supplier to the organization. Today, IT leaders are at the forefront of their companies’ march into the digital age. Technology is now recognized as a key enabler for achieving strategic business goals, including revenue growth, market expansion, and customer satisfaction; and IT leaders have risen to the challenge of simultaneously running the organization while identifying and leveraging innovative solutions that can drive growth.
IT executives are in one of the most dynamic, challenging business environments of all time. The business expects speed; the IT function strives to keep up while pursuing innovation and efficiency. Many CIOs recognize that cloud is a possible solution to achieving both but they are uncertain about the best way to
Whether your company seeks to modernize IT, fuel innovation or accelerate growth, you’ll find that by identifying the most appropriate cloud journey for your organization, you can determine the best potential entry points to cloud migration as well as identify, prepare and prevent possible roadblocks.
