Most organizations have invested, and continue to invest, in people, processes, technology, and policies to meet customer privacy requirements and avoid significant fines and other penalties. In addition, data breaches continue to expose the personal information of millions of people, and organizations are concerned about the products they buy, services they use, people they employ, and with whom they partner and do business with generally. As a result, customers are asking more questions during the buying cycle about how their data is captured, used, transferred, shared, stored, and destroyed. In last year’s study (Cisco 2018 Privacy Maturity Benchmark Study), Cisco introduced data and insights regarding how these privacy concerns were negatively impacting the buying cycle and timelines. This year’s research updates those findings and explores the benefits associated with privacy investment.

The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. They’re in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. That’s the modern reality of business life—it’s happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, it’s happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are it’s no longer 9 ‘til 5.

From stolen consumer data to sensitive data leaks, it seems that no one’s data has been safe in recent years. For numerous reasons, like misconfigured storage repositories and unpatched vulnerabilities, this trend is likely to continue. The integration of digital technology into all areas of business has resulted in more of our data being stored on computers and websites targeted by hackers, which has significantly increased the number of data breaches as well as organizations’ vulnerability to malware attacks. For example, the Equifax breach impacted 145 MM consumers, and with more employees working remotely on a wide range of devices, the threat landscape has expanded.
The meteoric rise of the public cloud has compounded this issue, as data security requires new knowledge and skill sets in short supply, often leading to misconfigured and insecure solutions. Companies need to adopt the approach that every piece of data in their possession, on-premises or in the cloud, must be encryp

Colocation providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
Colocation facilities are rapidly designing and building new facilities in order to capitalize on market opportunity. Getting the facility up and running is the first challenge. The second? Recruiting, training, and retaining qualified data center staff. In this webinar, co-hosted by Tony DeSpirito, VP & General Manager Data Center Operations at Schneider Electric, & Brian Gisi, Infrastructure Management & Services Manager at IBM, to access field-tested methods & strategies that can help you:

This new world is not only delivering better quality components at lower cost but is offering whole new design possibilities, new business models and new markets. The key is to know when to use metal additive manufacturing instead of or complementing conventional milling or casting.
Read this executive brief to learn about the transformative value of the fifth wave of metal 3D printing, as well as compelling use cases for direct metal printing from the aerospace, automotive and industrial sectors.
Robots play a major role in making manufacturing processes more efficient and
less labor intensive. They can help control costs and improve quality, as well as
increase productivity. The complexity of robotic system design, however, creates
obstacles for many manufacturers, and this is made more difficult by the need to
identify and integrate subsystems from multiple vendors.
NexCOBOT, a NEXCOM company, offers a flexible, modular robotics solution
integrating artificial intelligence (AI) with machine vision and powered by the
new Intel® Vision Accelerator Design products. The solution brings together
the insight of artificial intelligence, the mobility of robotics, and the capabilities
of machine vision, providing a new level of precision and optimization for
manufacturing and industrial implementations

There can be no doubt that the architecture for analytics has evolved
over its 25-30 year history. Many recent innovations have had significant
impacts on this architecture since the simple concept of a single
repository of data called a data warehouse. First, the data warehouse
appliance (DWA), along with the advent of the NoSQL revolution, selfservice analytics, and other trends, has had a dramatic impact on the
traditional architecture. Second, the emergence of data science, realtime operational analytics, and self-service demands has certainly had
a substantial effect on the analytical architecture.

Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically.

Today, ERP is a cornerstone of many organisations’ tech infrastructure. Yet many of the solutions in play are legacy products, decades old and designed for an entirely different business landscape.
With industry leaders expressing concern that out-of-date ERP solutions have now become an impediment to competitive business, IDC set out to uncover what exactly modern companies need from their ERP systems, and why SAP S/4Hana seems so well placed to deliver.
Why your data catalog won’t deliver significant ROI
According to Gartner, organizations that provide access to a curated catalog of internal and external data assets will derive twice as much business value from their analytics investments by 2020 than those that do not.
That’s a ringing endorsement of data catalogs, and a growing number of enterprises seem to agree. In fact, the global data catalog market is expected to grow from US$210.0 million in 2017 to US$620.0 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.2%.
Why such large and intensifying demand for data catalogs? The primary driver is that many organizations are working to modernize their data platforms with data lakes, cloud-based data warehouses, advanced analytics and various SaaS applications in order to grow profitable digital initiatives. To support these digital initiatives and other business imperatives, organizations need more reliable, faster access to their data.
However, modernizing data plat
The most significant IT transformation of this century is the rapid adoption of cloud-based applications. Most organizations are now dependent on a number of SaaS and IaaS platforms to deliver customer satisfaction and empower employee productivity. IT teams are responsible for delivering a high quality user experience for cloud applications while they struggle to manage a secure environment with advanced persistent threats. The WAN is the fabric to connect and control access between remote users and cloud-based applications. The WAN fabric needs to identify application type, location, apply prioritization and route traffic across the appropriate (multiple) WAN links to deliver on user experience. Different types of users/devices connecting to the cloud (via the Internet) means security policies must be enforced at branch, data center and in the cloud.
