revert to previous file versions is a common occurrence due to predicaments large and small. Recognizing these realities,

Most enterprises operate in a hybrid cloud environment, whether they know it or not. The benefits of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud architectures are numerous, but since most companies don’t even realize they’re using multi-cloud, they’re not taking full advantage of the multi/hybrid cloud environment. Read this ebook to learn how proper data management via an enterprise data layer empowers enterprises to unlock the full potential of their multi- and/or hybrid cloud strategies to achieve data autonomy while scaling efficiently, effectively, and safely.
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.

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.
