While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
The ways in which the Internet supports our everyday lives have become richer, more engaging, and more mobile. This innovation is driven by the visionaries, designers, developers, and managers of the web experiences that users consume every day. By exploring new ways to solve challenges and improve products and services that enrich our lives, developers and business owners have stretched the Internet to support use cases for which it was never designed. In order to succeed, modern web experiences must seem simple to end-users, even though most ultimately require complex design and technology to deliver.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their
only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their
businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to
increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly
reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t
an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And
like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration.
In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with
a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged
appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
One of the value propositions of an Internet of Things (IoT) strategy is the ability to provide insight that was previously invisible to the business. But before a business can develop a strategy for IoT, it needs a platform that meets the foundational principles of an IoT solution. Amazon Web Services (AWS) believes in some basic freedoms that are driving organizational and economic benefits of the cloud into businesses. These freedoms are why more than a million customers already use the AWS platform to support virtually any cloud workload. These freedoms are also why AWS is proving itself as the primary catalyst to any Internet of Things strategy across commercial, consumer, and industrial solutions.
This paper outlines core tenets that should be considered when developing an IoT strategy, the benefits of AWS in that strategy and how the AWS cloud platform can be the critical component supporting those core tenets.
Les technologies d'intelligence artificielle telles que l'apprentissage machine et le Deep Learning permettent d'obtenir des informations et de la précision à deux marques majeures dans des secteurs très différents : la santé et les assurances.

What is a Data Lake?
Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems.
Data Lakes are a new and increasingly popular way to store and analyze data that addresses many of these challenges. A Data Lakes allows an organization to store all of their data, structured and unstructured, in one, centralized repository. Since data can be stored as-is, there is no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.

Organizations are collecting and analyzing increasing amounts of data making it difficult for traditional on-premises solutions for data storage, data management, and analytics to keep pace. Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier provide an ideal storage solution for data lakes. They provide options such as a breadth and depth of integration with traditional big data analytics tools as well as innovative query-in-place analytics tools that help you eliminate costly and complex extract, transform, and load processes.
This guide explains each of these options and provides best practices for building your Amazon S3-based data lake.
As easy as it is to get swept up by the hype surrounding big data, it’s just as easy for organizations to become discouraged by the challenges they encounter while implementing a big data initiative. Concerns regarding big data skill sets (and the lack thereof), security, the unpredictability of data, unsustainable costs, and the need to make a business case can bring a big data initiative to a screeching halt.
However, given big data’s power to transform business, it’s critical that organizations overcome these challenges and realize the value of big data.

IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?

Defining the Data Lake
“Big data” is an idea as much as a particular methodology or technology, yet it’s an idea that is enabling powerful insights, faster and better decisions, and even business transformations across many industries. In general, big data can be characterized as an approach to extracting insights from very large quantities of structured and unstructured data from varied sources at a speed that is immediate (enough) for the particular analytics use case.
Die Recherchen von IDC haben ergeben, dass in den nächsten Jahren die meisten IT-Workloads in die Cloud verschoben werden. Doch neben all den positiven Berichten über Unternehmen, die in die Cloud umziehen, gibt es auch Unternehmen, die sich noch immer fragen, ob ein solcher Wechsel wirklich kosteneffizient ist und welche Vorteile sich aus einem solchen ergeben. Während die Antworten auf solche Fragen von Workload zu Workload variieren, gibt es ein Element, das besondere Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zieht: das Data-Warehouse.
Il est tout aussi facile d'être submergé par l'omniprésent Big Data qu'il l'est pour les organisations d'être découragées par les défis qu'elles rencontrent lorsqu'elles implémentent une initiative en matière de Big Data. Les préoccupations liées aux ensembles de compétences associées au Big Data (et à leur absence), à la sécurité, à l'imprévisibilité des données, aux coûts non viables et à la nécessité d'effectuer une analyse de rentabilité peuvent mettre brutalement fin à une initiative en matière de Big Data.
La plupart des entreprises ont investi considérablement dans le stockage de leurs données, avec un coût de gestion continu en termes de licences logicielles, frais de maintenance, coûts opérationnels et matériel. Est-il plus judicieux d'opter pour une solution cloud ? Quels en sont les coûts et les avantages ? En combien de temps un tel choix est-il rentabilisé?
Découvrez, dans ce document, la synthèse de l’enquête IDC sur le retour d'expérience de 8 entreprises utilisant Amazon Redshift.
