We often think of malware as being designed to sit beneath the radar, collecting data in stealth mode, for the purposes of fraud or corporate espionage. Increasingly however, we’re witnessing attacks on corporations designed to cause substantial economic losses via wholesale destruction. For example, the Shamoon malware that recently hit Saudi Arabia-based Aramco (the world’s largest oil company) and RasGas (a Qatar-based gas company) corrupted files on tens of thousands of workstations, overwriting the Master Boot Records. These malware attacks, which may well have targeted website vulnerabilities, resulted in destruction on an industrial scale. At Aramco, IT professionals were forced to replace 30,000 PCs and laptops. RasGas meanwhile, had to shut down all email communications, and the company’s website was forced offline.

Today's economic climate has heightened the goal of every IT department to provide high-quality IT service to the business, at the lowest possible cost, while improving business outcomes. Looking outside of the infrastructure itself, there are two key challenges related to data storage: provisioning capacity for applications and reducing risk through a sound data protection strategy. This white paper discusses the challenges of creating the right storage infrastructure, provides an overview of data storage options, and examines a storage solution that combines blade servers and network-attached storage.

Keep ahead of change with service oriented architecture (SOA). With SOA, businesses can flexibly adjust strategies and practices while lowering costs by repurposing existing software rather than replacing it. Other savings are possible as well, making SOA a sound investment. This white paper from ZapThink discusses how organizations can quickly benefit from SOA, regardless of the economic climate.

Research giant Forrester estimates that on average, data repositories for large applications grow by fifty percent annually. However, up to half of all that data can be duplicate or otherwise unnecessary. With no end in sight for the increase of raw data (both structured and unstructured), organizations must be ever more strategic about where and how to store enterprise information. Meanwhile, a tightening economy is putting pressure on costs, just as compliance mandates call for greater visibility into processes and data. What to do? Register for this Web Seminar to learn the four pillars of strategic storage, and how they can be used to simultaneously reduce costs, while improving speed, accuracy and accountability. The four pillars will be discussed in detail, with real-world examples of each: deep compression, database archiving,de-duplication thin provisioning.

Even when facing challenging economic times, businesses still need to communicate and rely on technology to connect with customers, partners, suppliers and their own employees. Cutting back on communications spending will have a negative effect in a long downturn.  It will leave any business that does so with fewer options when conditions improve and at a disadvantage compared to competitors that continue to invest.  However, there are 10 steps that can be taken to grow the value and use of communications, while controlling costs.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.

To paraphrase an old saying, “When the going gets tough, retailers start slashing operational costs.”  Ironically, cost slashing usually exposes a retailer to even greater risks instead of fortifying it against economic uncertainties.  All businesses have felt the impact of today’s volatile economy.  Retail has been hit especially hard, with sales in 2007 rising by only 2.4% - the smallest year-to-year increase since 2002. Despite such dour statistics, there are plenty of opportunities to gain share in today’s market.

Organizations have implemented enterprise applications such as ERP and CRM for business process execution but have failed to address the key enterprise asset: data. In the current economic environment, enterprises that fail to capitalize on their data assets jeopardize their cost structures and their earnings potential. It is vital for organizations to leverage their data assets to measure their business performance, identify the weak poles and strategic improvement spots to scale their business to new heights. Business Intelligence (BI), the recent innovation in IT, has emerged to be a potential hope for the organizations to build a strong business milieu without any new asset investments and utilizing the existing key assets of the organizations.
