In Forrester’s evaluation of the emerging market for conversational computing platforms, we identified the seven most significant providers — Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nuance Communications, Oracle, and Rulai — in the category and evaluated them. This report details our findings about how each vendor scored against nine criteria and where they stand in relation to each other. Application developers should use this review to select the right partners for their conversational computing platform needs.
"The state of chatbots has quickly evolved from a fad to an essential part of corporate strategy. No longer a nascent technology, chatbots have matured into solutions that enterprises across industries are taking seriously. But how do we distinguish a simple chatbot from human-like, AI- driven conversational solutions that we now see businesses adopting?
In this three part series, we will examine what it means to deploy “Conversational A.I.” for the enterprise"
Even after decades of industry and technology advancements, there still is no universal, integrated storage solution that can reduce risk, enable profitability, eliminate complexity and seamlessly integrate into the way businesses operate and manage data at scale? To reach these goals, there are capabilities that are required to achieve the optimum results at the lowest cost. These capabilities include availability, reliability, performance, density, manageability and application ecosystem integration? This paper outlines a better way to think about storing data at scale—solving these problems not only today, but well into the future?

Your employees, customers, and partners need the ability to connect and collaborate, at any time, from any location—across time zones or simply across the conference table.
And those workplaces are expanding faster than ever, powered by mobile and cloud usage that makes virtual meetings essential. With scalable and secure voice, video, and content sharing, real-time collaboration can happen anywhere. Staying connected can lead to improved productivity and faster decision-making, as well as better customer service. But only if the technology offers a seamless experience and is intuitive enough to drive user adoption. While the need for better meetings is universal, not all conferencing tools are the same.
Choosing the wrong tool could actually decrease productivity by wasting valuable meeting time troubleshooting the technology, or by providing a negative experience that will deter users from embracing it. This is especially true in situations where poor meeting quality could impact

What if defenders could see the future? If they knew an attack was coming, they could stop it, or at least mitigate its impact and help ensure what they need to protect most is safe. The fact is, defenders
can see what’s on the horizon.
Many clues are out there—and obvious.
The Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report presents our latest security industry advances designed to help organizations and
users defend against attacks. We also look at the techniques and strategies that adversaries use to break through those defenses
and evade detection.
The report also highlights major findings from the Cisco 2018 Security Capabilities Benchmark Study, which examines the security posture of enterprises and their perceptions of their preparedness to defend against attacks.
IIDC erwartet, dass bei Unternehmenskunden das Wachstum bei Flash-Speicher weiterhin höher als bei rotierenden Festplatten ist und dass die ausgelieferte SSD-Kapazität jedes Jahr um mehr als 75 % ansteigt.2 Eine mögliche Ursache dafür ist, dass die Preise schneller sinken als erwartet. Eine aktuelle Studie zeigt, dass Flash in Bezug auf die Gesamtbetriebskosten über einen Zeitraum von vier Jahren gesehen das kostengünstigste Medium für alle Speicherumgebungen ab 2016 sein wird.3 Die Gesamtbetriebskosten für Flash werden bis 2020 weiter sinken und einen ROI ermöglichen, bei dem Lösungen mit rotierenden Festplatten nicht mithalten können.

No matter what industry you’re in or role you have, we
all share a universal interest in trends. As marketers,
we look to Google Trends to understand what keywords
and search terms are most popular; we look for trending
hashtags and conversations on social to inform the
content we put out; and we put “Trends” sessions on our
agendas at conferences because we know they’ll draw
an audience. We’ve tapped into this almost universal desire

While email is perfect for one-to-one communication, it doesn't work half as well for managing many-to-many conversations like a helpdesk would. When businesses use email to support customers, they leave room for conversations to get lost, ignored or forgotten. Not to mention, the lack of accountability and metrics to gauge the process and figure out what's working and what's not working.
In this whitepaper, we discuss, for those businesses, the advantages a helpdesk has over email and lay out just how easy it can be to win customer love.

Data conversations continue to change as all businesses are trying to figure out today's reality of the move to the cloud, anywhere/anytime computing, and the explosive growth of data. These trends have drastically reshaped the IT industry and data management forever. With continued market innovations in storage, cloud, and hyper-converged infrastructures, there are six key modern IT needs that are increasingly the focus of CIO and technology leaders.
The NSA’s Information Assurance Directorate left many people scratching their heads in the winter
of 2015. The directive instructed those that follow its guidelines to postpone moving from RSA
cryptography to elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) if they hadn’t already done so.
“For those partners and vendors that have not yet made the transition to Suite B elliptic curve
algorithms, we recommend not making a significant expenditure to do so at this point but instead to
prepare for the upcoming quantum-resistant algorithm transition.”
The timing of the announcement was curious. Many in the crypto community wondered if there had been
a quantum computing breakthrough significant enough to warrant the NSA’s concern. A likely candidate
for such a breakthrough came from the University of New South Wales, Australia, where researchers
announced that they’d achieved quantum effects in silicon, which would be a massive jump forward for
The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

Office technology continues to become ever more powerful, versatile, and efficient, including display technology, which has made incredible strides in performance, functionality, agility, precision, and color. Dell is at the forefront of this rapid evolution of high-performance displays with innovative, award-winning monitors with a wide range of sizes, features, and price points.
The most successful businesses are greater than the sum of their parts. When individuals work together well, they fill in each other's blind spots and build on each other's great ideas. These conversations ultimately help teams be more productive, reduce time-to-market and come up with more innovative ideas. But if your teams are spread across different offices, or working from home, can you create the same collaborative magic?
Web-based collaboration tools claim to break down the collaboration barriers that distance can build. Everyone agrees they can reduce the time and cost of travel. And yes, these tools can stream your colleagues' voices, facial expressions, and slide decks into your meeting room, so you can get a clearer picture of verbal and behavioral signals. But if you're researching collaboration platforms, you'll hear skepticism, too. Naysayers declare that:
