Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Data protection often seems like a clash between competing interests: the need to protect data, against the need to protect access to data. The challenge lies in deploying the right protection across the different systems and types of data, since they each require different forms of protection.

For a backup solution to be considered flexible, it needs to satisfy
several key business requirements. It should integrate seamlessly
with any servers you’re running and provide full support for
all the applications your business uses. It should enable you to
protect assets in different parts of the country or overseas. And
it should let you manage and monitor backups from anywhere.
A flexible backup solution gives you everything you need to
protect the technology investments you make now and in the
future. So instead of having to buy multiple solutions to support
your changing needs, you can have a single solution that adapts
to fit your environment. We call that flexible deployment.

The modern organization has recognized the need to
embrace mobile devices in the workplace. Some have fully
implemented a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program,
while some have adopted a hybrid model of corporateowned
and personally-enabled (COPE) devices. Many
companies then choose to deploy an Enterprise Mobility
Management (EMM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution to enable some control of the mobile devices
that access corporate data. For companies at this stage of
mobility, security is the next critical layer. As Gartner states,
“It is becoming increasingly important that security leaders

Flexible deployment options, licensing models help take the challenges out of change. As you move toward the cloud, you're likely planning or managing a mixed environment of on- premises and on- cloud applications. To help you succeed in this transition, you need a trans-formative, mixed-workload database that can handle a massive volume of data while delivering high performance, data availability and the flexibility to adapt respond to business changes.
In this paper, you'll learn how organizations are adopting increasingly sophisticated analytics methods, that analytics usage trends are placing new demands on rigid data warehouses, and what's needed is hybrid data warehouse architecture that supports all deployment models.
In an era where Big Data decisions demand high-powered tools, organizations everywhere are still mired in complex spreadsheets that limit the speed and precision of their critical customer interactions.
Read this fact sheet to learn how you can evolve beyond what spreadsheets alone can achieve:
• Allow business users to easily create and compare “what if” scenarios, interact with compelling visualizations, and challenge, improve and build trust with stakeholders and collaborators
• Rapidly deploy new optimization features and applications practically at the speed of thought – without leaning on IT – while leveraging existing investments in other analytic tools (such as R, SAS, MATLAB, and even Excel)
The increasing reliance on big data platforms for all functions of the organization has been transformative. As these environments mature and data volumes increase, organizations face infrastructure and management scalability challenges.

Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.
