Cyberattacks are becoming the number-one risk to businesses, brands, operations, and financials, according to recent "SonicWall Cyber Threat Report" (March 2018).  There were 9.32 billion malware attacks in total in 2017, representing an 18.4% increase over 2016. On the other hand, Verizon's Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) shows that more a quarter of the time, data breaches across the world originated from an organization's "insiders." But the report notes, malicious employees looking aren't the only insider threat you face. Errors were at the heart of almost one in five (17%) breaches.

MultiValue database technology continues to boost a strong following of loyal supporters. This NoSQL database technology is found in many industry verticals, including retail, travel industry, oil & gas, healthcare, government, banking, and education. Highly customized, mission-critical applications have been built on MultiValue database technology, which is sometimes called the fifth NoSQL database technology. The MultiValue database dates back to the mid-1960s, with Don Nelson and Dick Pick widely credited as the founding fathers of the technology. Also referred to as Pick or MultiDimensional, a key advantage of MultiValue, is the database structure's use of attributes that can have multiple values, rather than one single value as with relational technology.

Addressing the need to store and manage increasingly large amounts of data that does not fit neatly in rows and columns, NoSQL databases can run on commodity hardware, support the unstructured, non-relational data flowing into organizations from the proliferation of new sources, and are available in a variety of structures that open up new types of data sources, providing ways to tap into the institutional knowledge locked in PCs and departmental silos.

A relational database is a set of formally described tables from which data can be accessed or reassembled in many different ways without having to reorganize the database tables. The standard user and application programming interface (API) of a relational database is the Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL statements are used both for interactive queries for information from a relational database and for gathering data for reports.

Still a relatively new solution coming into its own streaming platforms allow individuals to see data in real-time batches. Streaming solutions can help businesses analyze data in motion, simplify the development of applications, and extend the value of existing systems by integrating with already implemented applications along with supporting both structured and unstructured data.

"ECM is dead," proclaimed Michael Woodbridge in a Gartner blog post earlier this year. And, the fact is, today's legacy enterprise content management (ECM) systems and other traditional approaches to managing information are no longer feasible in a world where 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day—resulting in general confusion when itcomes to document management.

NVMe quickly gained a foothold in the client space as the storage interface of choice for higher end desktops, laptops, and even phones. In the enterprise space NVMe has been used as a direct-attached storage (DAS) option, where storage is accessed through a PCIe interface on the CPU within the server. The advent of NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) promises to expand the utility of NVMe in the datacenter beyond just a DAS replacement, which will push the demand for flash storage even higher.

The unprecedented volumes of data now pouring forth from virtualization technologies and cloud-based infrastructure have taxed traditional storage architectures beyond their limits. Organizations want to store their data in an efficient and affordable way that is also flexible. Software-defined storage (SDS) meets these criteria and, therefore, is enjoying a surge in adoption.

Since the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in May 2018, organizations have  hopefully already emerged from the strategy phase and are now well into implementation. However, the nuances of GDPR are something most of us are still trying to comprehend—and we probably won't truly understand all of it for a while. In the hustle to reach compliance, errors will likely have been made. In the process of GDPR planning and execution, there are four key areas that companies need to be wary of. If not managed carefully, they can slow down the process of achieving, and maintaining, compliance goals.

Neural networks and deep learning are frequently recognized as the key to futuristic innovations like facial recognition, with consumers paying up for the novelty of using their visage to unlock their phones, and police squads partnering with AI startups to catch criminals. But the use cases for neural nets extend well beyond those flashy scenarios, and innovations in hardware are enhancing accessibility, signaling that it's time for more companies to find appropriate business cases for their industry.

Organizations worldwide are grappling with the requirements of the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and it's no secret that finding ways to remain compliant has become one of the most visible challenges, and one that has dominated the conversation. What's more pertinent; however, is the root of the problem: outdated systems which organizations use to track and understand where their data lives. This has grown more difficult day-by-day, as the amount of data collected by organizations grows exponentially. GDPR is a good forcing function to spur them to dig into this problem before it gets worse.

Today's global economy runs on data. Every day, individuals are providing data, while companies collect it. The rapid growth and volume of this data has been overwhelming and nearly impossible to manage. But, as the value of data increases, so does the interest from outside, including potentially nefarious sources. What's required are newer, specific safeguards that address the myriad of data challenges brought about by the digital age.

Bitcoin was the hot topic in financial and tech circles in 2017. The decentralized digital currency jumped from just under $1,000 at the start of the year to a $20,000 all-time high in December. The real game-changer here isn't Bitcoin, though, but the technology that powers it, known as blockchain. Despite volatility and suspicion marking the crypto-market, the blockchain concept could be a truly revolutionary innovation.

Digitization is transforming business faster than ever before—with software and technology now deeply ingrained in the core of organizations' operations and business functions, rather than siloed in IT. While companies reap the benefits of digital transformation, not every organization is prepared for the double-edged sword that comes with the widespread implementation of software and technology: audits.

Posted April 12, 2018

"Digital transformation" is a term that can both unite and divide audiences in a single conversation. Delve into the topic at a conference or a cocktail party, and people within earshot will quickly agree that it's a good thing—an initiative that every organization should undertake if it wants to stay competitive. But just as quickly, the same people will start a debate about what digital transformation really is and what an organization should do to make it happen.
