In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
Die digitale Transformation ist für mittelständische Unternehmen (100 bis 999 Mitarbeiter) ein absolutes Muss, um im digitalen Umfeld erfolgreich zu sein. Durch eine digitale Transformation können sich Unternehmen mehr Wettbewerbsvorteile verschaffen, indem sie Geschäftsprozesse automatisieren, operative Abläufe effizienter gestalten, Kundenbeziehungen vertiefen und neue Umsatzströme durch Produkte und Services generieren, die auf modernsten Technologien basieren. Die digitale Transformation kann durchaus als Reise gesehen werden, die damit beginnt, dass Unternehmen eine IT-basierte Vision entwickeln. Diese führt dann zu einer datenorientierten Strategie, bei der Analysen im Mittelpunkt stehen. Das Ergebnis solcher Initiativen hängt von der Fähigkeit des Unternehmens ab, Menschen, Prozesse, Plattformen und den Aspekt Governance effizient zu nutzen, um die Geschäftsziele des Unternehmens zu erreichen.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment. While most understand the need for flash performance, there is still a subset that does not view the broader use of flash in the enterprise as cost effective
The US healthcare industry has historically lagged behind others in the maturity of security capabilities, only recently catching up on data security and privacy in response to HIPAA. But there is a wide range of other mounting risks unique to healthcare that S&R pros in healthcare can’t ignore — greater regulatory pressure, increasing targeted attacks, the frightening uncertainty of IoT security, and global economic pressures. This report outlines the most important security capabilities for security leaders in this sector to implement in the face of these challenges.
With companies embracing mobility to maintain competitive advantage in the digital era, information security threats have increased exponentially. Userfriendly technologies such as mobile devices, mobile apps, and cloud storage are often hacker-friendly too, creating opportunities for cybercriminals to covertly infiltrate company data. This opens the door to data loss, reputational damage, loss of proprietary information – not to mention the associated regulatory penalties and potential legal fees. IT bears the brunt of responsibility for information security, yet according to Forrester, internal incidents top the list of security breach causes in 2014.
The OCR conducts HIPAA audits of covered entities and their business associates and subcontractors. If HIPAA violations are discovered during these audits, the OCR will implement significant penalties. Additionally, since OCR is posting the details of every breach affecting 500 or more individuals on a public website1 , the organizations involved have become susceptible to class-action lawsuits.
IT leaders today are reinventing their infrastructure to support a mobile workforce and a complex array of connected devices. Against this backdrop of mobility and connectivity, Healthcare IT is tasked with meeting compliance challenges in an intricate and transformational regulatory environment. With a host of new data protection regulations and increasingly high settlement fees for data breaches, data security has never been more important to Healthcare organizations
This is arguably the most unsettling time in history to be a CIO. The IT landscape is shifting at a rapid pace with advances in social media, mobility and big data. The proliferation of advanced robotics is just around the corner and the Internet of Things is connecting even the most mundane objects to the internet—and probably the corporate network. Back in the 1990s, most computer hackers were interested in gaining access to networks purely for kudos among their peers. Today hackers have monetized their skills and make their living from finding vulnerabilities in IT networks.
The release of a new Microsoft operating system is always an important event for IT departments, and Windows 10 is no exception.

“Does Cisco Umbrella block ransomware?”
This is one of the most common questions that we hear from customers. In reality, the answer for any security provider — including Cisco — is seldom an absolute “yes” or “no.” It really depends on how each variant arrives onto your systems, as well as its order of operations for encrypting data for ransom.
However, with Cisco you can significantly reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization.
