Every IT team faces challenges that require change: controlling costs. accelerating time to value, increasing agility, reducing complexity, improving performance. ensuring security, dealing with exponential data growth, and compliance within a growing regulatory burden.
Our systems, networks, and entire environments today are rich with data, yet we are at the very beginning stages of gaining deeper insights from data and unlocking its real value. IDC forecasts that the global data sphere will grow to 163ZB by 2025. Whether a company is adding sensors to systems and devices in factories, buildings, hospitals, or cities as part of Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives; seeking to improve public safety; or transforming the customer experience through the use of augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) systems in combination with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), the most immediate consequence for IT teams is an explosion in data being generated that must be moved, stored, protected, and analyzed — and then leveraged and capitalized on.
Although many enterprise technology trends pop up each year, the vast majority of them end up in the dust bins of history, or at least never really achieve breakout fame. It’s a rarity for a brand-new technology to break out, but it’s rarer still when such a technology achieves immediate hype status— and then actually lives up to the hype.
How to give employees fast, convenient access to files — while keeping your data secure
If employees can’t easily access any file from any device, they will go around your IT policies and buy their own cloud storage. To prevent shadow IT, you must provide a file-sharing tool that combines the security your business needs with the convenience that users demand.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is a critical component in modernizing your data center to meet new and growing customer expectations and demands. Trusted innovators Citrix and Cisco share a common vision for applying the concepts of SDN to simplify and automate data center and application networking to help their customers succeed.
According to the new market research “Modular Data Center Market by Functional Module Solution (All-In-One Module and Individual Module), Service, Data Center Size, Tier Type, Industry, and Region – Global Forecast to 2022″, the modular data center market is expected to grow from $13.07 billion in 2017 to $46.50 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 28.90%.
As the Internet of Things (IoT) expands and evolves, many of our everyday activities will involve connected devices. By 2025, the average person with Internet service will interact with connected devices nearly 4,800 times per day—basically one interaction every 18 seconds.
Enterprise Data Warehouses (EDWs) have existed for about 20 years. They serve as the foundations of insight-driven organizations, delivering timely analysis and reporting of structured data, handling large analytic workloads, and supporting the high levels of concurrency that these organizations demand (i.e., many users simultaneously accessing the Enterprise Data Warehouse).
“Data retention” is now everyone’s concern, and its scope goes far beyond what data to retain and for how long. Not long ago, data retention programs were the province of a handful of specialists in the legal and compliance departments. Organizations knew they had to retain certain documents for a specified number of years to meet legal and regulatory obligations and that was about it.
The digital era is changing the way that organizations think about, protect, and monetize data. Now more than ever they are pushing to be digitally-driven, and to achieve this they must be data-driven.
The global Power Distribution Unit Market is projected to reach $5.2 billion by 2024 from an estimated $3.7 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. The rising investments in data centers along with increasing cloud-based networking are driving the demand for power distribution units.
The critical power and cooling market is expected to grow from an estimated $16.87 billion in 2016 to $25.80 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 8.88%, from 2016 to 2021. A rise in digitalization and cloud computing leading to an increase in demand for data centers, increasing demand for improved cooling efficiency in data centers, a need to reduce anomalies in power supply, and regulations and initiatives by institutes and associations are the prime factors driving the critical power and cooling market.
Flexible and agile is the ‘new normal’
Enterprise success today relies on speed, agility, security and availability, while always keeping costs under tight control.
But yesterday’s IT is not up to the job
Many enterprise IT platforms were built to solve yesterday’s problems, resulting in hard to manage systems with limited flexibility.
Today’s IT leaders are at a crossroads. Behind them, there’s a long legacy of hardware and software deployment decisions that have served the business well for years. But new business requirements and application development methods have begun to test the status quo, and as they seek to modernize, they will face several difficult decisions. IT leaders can either commit to the cloud, go all in with on-premises infrastructure or evaluate something entirely new.
According to the new market research “Software-Defined Data Center Market by Component (Hardware, Software, and Service), Type (Software-Defined Compute, Software-Defined Storage, and Software-Defined Data Center Networking), Organization Size, Vertical, and Region – Global Forecast to 2023″, the global Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) market size is expected to grow from $33.5 billion in 2018 to $96.5 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.6% during the forecast period.
The power rental market is projected to grow from an estimated $14.5 billion in 2018 to $21.29 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.89% from 2018 to 2023. The global power market is witnessing a significant growth, which is driven by the increase in power loss due to aging infrastructure and limited access to electricity in rural areas.
Over the last few years, ransomware has emerged as one of the most devastating and costly attacks in the hacker arsenal. Cyber thieves are increasingly using this form of attack to target individuals, corporate entities and public sector organizations alike by holding your system or files for ransom. Unlike other forms of cyber theft that often involve stolen financial or healthcare information, ransomware cuts out the middleman. In cases where an attacker steals health or financial documents, they must sell them on to third parties to make money. As far as ransomware is concerned, the money comes directly from the victim.
The global solid oxide fuel cell market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.88%, by value from 2017 to 2025. The market in North America was the largest in 2016 and is projected to hold the largest share by 2025, followed by the markets in Asia Pacific and Europe. The growth of the solid oxide fuel cell market is mainly driven by government subsidies and fuel cell programs in countries, such as the US and Japan, increasing demand for efficient power generation and stringent emission norms in Europe and North America.
