The lack of trusted information - information that is accurate, timely and relevant - is on the minds of CEOs and senior executives around the world. The cost and complexity of managing increasing volumes of data and content, combined with the need to provide trusted information to every user for every transaction, is driving CIOs to rethink their approach to information delivery.
This white paper, authored by industry analyst IDC, explores the problems confronting IT organizations today as they seek to bring data together from disparate sources in order to achieve better information coherence, operational efficiency, and more effective overall governance. Specifically, the paper considers the problems posed by the complexity of "data integration" technology in terms of its configuration and maintenance. It looks at the utility of a grid computing approach in providing scalability and manageability for "data integration" and considers how an appliance approach can further reduce cost and risk for customers.

The complexity and number of logons employees must manage on a daily basis are increasing sources of frustration and lost productivity. The time wasted entering, changing, writing down, forgetting and resetting passwords might be in small increments, but they are frequent and add up to a significant consumption of employee time. When employees are locked out because they’ve forgotten their passwords, they cannot perform their jobs.
With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.

With data breaches widespread, no organisation can afford to be complacent, but most data losses are avoidable. Many of the breaches making headline news are caused by the loss or theft of laptops and other portable devices. To protect themselves from financial and reputational damage, encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on such devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by allowing the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.
