Government agencies often look to promote new technology for cost-savings and efficiency, but it does not stop there. The second and third-tier effects of technology can be long lasting for citizens, businesses, and economies. When public institutions adopt the cloud, they experience an internal transformation. Inside an organization, cloud usage drives greater accessibility of data and information sharing, increases worker productivity, and improves resource allocation. The external benefit of the cloud is recognized through a government’s ability to put reclaimed time and resources toward serving citizens. This includes provisioning public services, such as occupational-skills training, quicker and more effective service delivery, a pathway to a more productive workforce, and ultimately, a boost to local development. This whitepaper examines the enterprise-level benefits of the cloud, as well as the residual impact on economic development. The U.S. Economic Development Administration
Over the last several years, DigitalOcean has built out its feature set in a way that has taken it from a provider of cheap and simple virtual machines (VMs) to a legitimate public cloud alternative, most recently adding support for Redis and MySQL to its managed database services. As its services evolve, it continues to experience healthy growth and maintain popularity among the independent developer audience. Over the past two years, DigitalOcean has accelerated the velocity of its feature development, looking to better meet the needs of a business audience. By emphasizing a simplified feature set, pricing structure and user experience, even as it expands its competitive footprint in the shadow of public cloud vendors such as Amazon Web Service (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Digital Ocean continues to help define what it means to be an alternative public cloud in a market dominated and largely defined by hyperscalers.
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
With cloud, mobile and all the new tools & frameworks that come with them, application development has never been so easy – or so hard.
Join leading application development expert Mark Driver of Gartner as he answers your most pressing questions, including:
What is the impact of lightweight and scripting applications traditional IT process?
How has app development changed with the rise of cloud computing?
How has mobile development changed expectations of developers and the apps they build?
Healthcare and Life Sciences organizations are using data to generate knowledge that helps them provide better patient care, enhances biopharma research and development, and streamlines operations across the product innovation and care delivery continuum.

Big data alone does not guarantee better business decisions. Often that data needs to be moved and transformed so Insight Platforms can discern useful business intelligence. To deliver those results faster than traditional Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) technologies, use Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift. This cloud- native ETL/ELT offering, built specifically for Amazon Redshift, simplifies the process of loading and transforming data and can help reduce your development time.
This white paper will focus on approaches that can help you maximize your investment in Amazon Redshift. Learn how the scalable, cloud- native architecture and fast, secure integrations can benefit your organization, and discover ways this cost- effective solution is designed with cloud computing in mind. In addition, we will explore how Matillion ETL and Amazon Redshift make it possible for you to automate data transformation directly in the data warehouse to deliver analytics and business intelligence (BI

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard

Data security is a top concern these days. In a world of privacy regulation, intellectual property theft, and cybercrime, ensuring data security and protecting sensitive enterprise data is crucial.
Only a data masking solution can secure vital data and enable outsourcing, third-party analysis, and cloud deployments. But more often than not, masking projects fail. Some of the best data masking tools bottleneck processes and once masked, data is hard to move and manage across the application development lifecycle.

Applications are the modern lifeblood of the enterprise, and the desire to keep up with market demands has elevated most enterprise IT strategies from purely on-premises to hybrid and multi-cloud. But the desire to be even more agile and productive—and connect with end users in new and exciting ways—is pushing investments even further into new application environments, development processes, and management tools all leveraging cloud-native technology. In this executive brief, we home in on one component of the cloud-native movement, Kubernetes, and break down its role in achieving enterprise agility, experimentation, and innovation for competitive gain.
The need to bridge the gap between traditional IT services and cloud application delivery is vital. This HPE Pointnext blueprint guide examines the critical global business services and IT technology best practices for enabling cloud-native applications—from DevOps practices to underlying infrastructure. The blueprint helps IT teams accelerate the development and delivery of cloud-native applications.
System administrators and other IT practitioners spend as much as 50% of their time on routine, repetitive tasks. Does the following apply to your organization?
• You go from one server to the next, installing the same package on all of them. It works nine times out of 10, but the tenth time causes a failure ... and you can't identify what went wrong.
• You can't scale. When the business wants to move to the cloud, or asks for faster provisioning of development and test environments, you only have so many hours in the day — and you can't meet everyone's needs.
• You don't have time to get to the work that matters. You spend too much time on routine system management, and can't prepare for the projects that will bring real business value to your team — and customers.
With growing demands from all corners of your organization, you simply can't keep doing it all manually. Download this paper to learn how you can benefit from automation, and how IT infrastructure can become a strategic ass
