large data volumes to meet your requirements, regardless of complexity.
Information Server can uniquely support th
Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business,
the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most
successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured,
rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations,
stored and put to work to enable business strategies. Data integration
tools play a critical role in extracting data from a variety of sources and
making it available for enterprise applications, business intelligence
(BI), machine learning (ML) and other purposes. Many organization
seek to enhance the value of data for line-of-business managers by
enabling self-service access. This is increasingly important as large
volumes of unstructured data from Internet-of-Things (IOT) devices
are presenting organizations with opportunities for game-changing
insights from big data analytics. A new survey of 369 IT professionals,
from managers to directors and VPs of IT, by BizTechInsights on
behalf of IBM reveals the challe
Sophisticated banking requires sophisticated computing systems. But which systems offer the greatest chance for success? Many banks are discovering that the answer can be found within their on-premise data centers – the mainframe computer.
Mainframes have become a modern platform for innovation. When operating in a hybrid cloud environment, mainframes provide cost flexibility, scalability, agility, sophistication and unmatched security. And they support innovation, business transformation and new types of monetization. The power of mainframe computing is being rediscovered. Specifically, in a recent 2017 survey of banking executives, we found that:
• 50 percent said they believe hybrid cloud – and the systems that underpin it – can significantly lower the cost of IT ownership
• 47 percent said they believe mainframe enabled hybrid cloud can improve operating margin
• 47 percent said they believe dual-platform hybrid cloud can accelerate innovation.
While innovation and improved p
There are three things that senior executives in the financial services industry want from their investments in computing systems. They are the same three things these institutions require for their very survival. First is unwavering security. The integrity of customer accounts and records is paramount to maintain trust across the financial ecosystem. Cybercrime is anathema to the core function of banking and cannot be tolerated. Next is captivating, personalized experiences based on real-time data analytics leading to instantaneous customer fulfillment. And finally, there is the essential delivery of these secure experiences while providing a cost and efficiency advantage over competing solutions
Encryption, if properly deployed and managed, is one of the most powerful tools that organizations can
use to avoid costly and embarrassing data breaches. Yet organizations struggle with the complexity
associated with the technology that often stems from a history of siloed investments of point solutions
designed to largely address pools of regulated data associated with a compliance mandate.
Chatter about the cloud is everywhere. You can't turn on your TV, look at your smartphone, open a magazine or browse websites without being inundated with messages about the cloud. Proponents tell you the cloud will save you time, give you a place to store data, create a way to manage hard drive space on your phone and much more. Detractors will scare you with stories of hackers gaining access to personal photos and bank account numbers.
Over the past few years, business leaders have been the primary drivers of technology change, including making decisions to adopt new applications in the cloud, mandate a cloud-first strategy, offer new capabilities with an API-first strategy, and provide new applications to end users on mobile first.
There are significant benefits to these cloud decisions because they decrease time to value, lower costs, and make it easier for organizations to experiment and innovate. But there are consequences as well, chiefly in the complexity of learning how to integrate applications and exchange data across a decentralized architecture that is largely driven by autonomous development decisions.
This IDC White Paper answers the following questions about the need for hybrid integration:
How are changes in business strategy and technology adoption requiring changes in how organizations approach integration?
What are the major events that trigger integration adaptation?
How are the roles involve
Why is messaging so essential to your success in the emerging cloud environment? Because it provides data resilience, performance and simplicity across your IT infrastructure. This holds particularly true in systems that span multiple environments and in organizations where certain components may not always be available.
Read this white paper to learn two of the most common ways organizations consume messaging in the cloud:
Deploy a software messaging system into a cloud environment.
Use a managed messaging service operated by a cloud provider.

Data. It seems to be everywhere today and yet we can never get
enough of it. But as it turns out, a lack of data isn’t our problem
-- our problem is the difficulty piecing together, understanding and
finding the story in all the data that’s in front of us.
In software testing in particular, the need for consolidated,
meaningful test metrics has never been higher. As both the pace of
development and the cost of delivering poor quality software
increase, we need these metrics to help us test smarter, better and
Fortunately, business intelligence now exists to make this goal a
reality. The analytics these tools provide can help drive efficient
and effective testing by providing teams with insight on everything
from testing quality and coverage to velocity and more. And this
knowledge can position the QA team as trusted experts to advise
the entire software development team on steps that can ensure a
better quality end result.
Like many brands with a large footprint of physical store locations, this automotive retailer was having trouble connecting its online ad spend to actual in-store revenue.
In order to reach online consumers, their digital marketing strategy had been buying clicks (CPC) and impressions (CPM). They realized these methods were lacking because:
- They had no true gauge of what ads were working - Their ROI was often inflated by making assumptions instead of using data - It required a heavy upfront investment

The Dell EMC All-Flash storage solution is versatile like a swiss army knife. They have a full suite of best-of-breed products that provide organizations the flexibility to meet their data storage requirements. They allow organizations to customize and choose across best-of breed solutions to meet their needs.
Am Ende steht fest, dass das All-Flash-Speicherarray Dell EMC VMAX 250F seine Versprechen besser erfüllt als das Speicherarray HPE 3PAR 8450.
Das Speicherarray VMAX 250F verarbeitete Transaktions- und Data-Mart-Ladevorgänge zeitgleich mit einer minimalen Auswirkung auf Datenbankperformance. Das ist von Vorteil, wenn Sie umfassende Backups erstellen oder große Datenmengen aus verschiedenen Quellen sammeln.
Datenbankverarbeitung ist ein wichtiges Thema – in Bezug auf Ihr Unternehmen und in Bezug auf den schieren Umfang der Vorgänge. Unsere Tests mit dem Dell EMC PowerEdge R930 Server und dem Unity 400F All-Flash-Speicherarray führten zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Leistung des Systems bei OLTP Workloads mit einem HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9-Server mit 3PAR-Array vergleichbar ist, sich aber durch ein besseres Komprimierungsverhältnis auszeichnet (3,2:1 gegenüber 1,3:1). Ladevorgänge mit großen Datenmengen beendete das Dell EMC Unity 22 Prozent schneller als das HPE 3PAR. Dies kann weniger Aufwand für einen mit Data Marts betrauten Administrator bedeuten. Bei paralleler Ausführung von OLTP- und Data-Mart-Workloads übertraf das Unity-Array das HPE 3PAR im Hinblick auf verarbeitete Aufträge pro Minute um 29 Prozent.
