Let’s be honest: If you’re just using one or two social providers for a simple web application, without needing a username/password
database yourself, or any other more elaborate features, it is easy enough to DIY. By all means, leverage the basic authentication
libraries you can find in any open source framework, and be done with it.

In this free webcast, learn how business intelligence is changing-and how to best keep pace with it. The amount of available data is exploding; yet much of it is kept in separate silos, where it can't be combined to form meaningful insights. This webcast introduces the latest business intelligence technology that can help you discover your insight "needle" in a haystack of data.
When you’re tasked with filling numerous open requisitions, you’ll typically source and engage candidates using the same traditional methods you’ve always used: you’ll post a job requisition online, wait for the flood of resumes to come in, then over-rely on tracking candidates via spreadsheets and emails. This isn't a winning strategy and it actually makes the recruiting process longer, more expensive, and less effective for building a powerhouse workforce.
Want to get even more value from your Hadoop implementation? Hadoop is an open-source software framework for running applications on large clusters of commodity hardware. As a result, it delivers fast processing and the ability to handle virtually limitless concurrent tasks and jobs, making it a remarkably low-cost complement to a traditional enterprise data infrastructure. This white paper presents the SAS portfolio of solutions that enable you to bring the full power of business analytics to Hadoop. These solutions span the entire analytic life cycle – from data management to data exploration, model development and deployment.
Virtualization offers significant agility and efficiency benefits. Pre-tested and optimized solutions from HP and Red Hat® are your fastest—and most cost-effective—path to get there. HP and Red Hat—two trusted business partners—have collaborated to create an answer. HP RA for Red Hat on ConvergedSystem 700x combines proven HP Converged Infrastructure components—to speed virtual server deployments—with open-source Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization software. The result is a compelling, cost-effective platform for consolidating your Linux systems. Read this solution brief to learn more.
The reference architecture (RA) design described in this paper combines HP ConvergedSystem 700x and Red Hat® Enterprise Virtualization, the open source choice for virtualizing workloads. At its core, the RA provides a foundation for building a high-performance Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform that has been optimized to consolidate and provision hundreds to thousands of workloads while providing extremely high availability at all levels – from the underlying network and storage fabrics up to the virtual machine (VM) layer. Pre-configured to meet a range of business needs, HP ConvergedSystem 700x offerings can be easily and rapidly deployed to support a variety of virtualized application environments. HP does all the work, using balanced building blocks of servers, storage, and networking, along with integrated management software and bundled support. Read this technical whitepaper to learn more.

The discovery of the Heartbleed bug in April, 2014 exposed a serious vulnerability in OpenSSL, an open-source cryptographic library often used with applications and web servers like Apache and Nginx. This latest high profile, targeted attack allowed infiltrators access to the memory of web servers running vulnerable versions of the library. Heartbleed quickly compromised the privacy for communications applications on the Web such as e-commerce, banking, email, and instant messaging, and opened the door to the interception of user information, passwords, and identities.
While the world now knows of the widespread havoc Heartbleed has caused to both businesses and individuals, it begs the question, “What happens when the next Heartbleed (or worse) comes along, and what can an organization do to weather yet another chapter in an all-too-familiar string of debilitating attacks?
Learn how to properly select the right real-time security options for your organization and see how the right actionable security intelligence will allow for safer and more secure data and security operations.

Due to its nature of open source code, Linux is fast becoming popular and is being deployed in ever increasing numbers on mail servers, corporate networks and desktops. Till recently, systems running on Linux were relatively free from virus and other threats. But with the greater penetration of Linux operating systems, virus authors have begun to target them.
This research brief begins with an outline of the major costs to consider when making an investment in analytics, the second section presents five modernization stages that analytics hardware/software have experienced, and the final section finishes with considerations when calculating total cost of ownership of the analytics ecosystem.
SAS Institute is gearing up to make a self-service data preparation play with its new Data Loader for Hadoop offering. Designed for profiling, cleansing, transforming and preparing data to load it into the open source data processing framework for analysis, Data Loader for Hadoop is a lynchpin in SAS's data management strategy for 2015.
This strategy centers on three key themes: 'big data' management and governance involving Hadoop, the streamlining of access to information, and the use of its federation and integration offerings to enable the right data to be available, at the right time.

Chuck Dubuque - Product Marketing Manager, Red Hat Server and desktop virtualization technologies, which bring cost and agility advantages to enterprise IT, have become mainstream in most datacenters. However, after nearly 10 years, virtualized servers still only represent about 30 percent of x86 production workloads due to technology limitations and the expense of proprietary virtualization platforms. In this session, Chuck Dubuque will cover:
* The benefits of datacenter virtualization
* Technologies in the open source community that will enable pervasive virtualization
* The move to the cloud
* The particular advantages of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and the Red Hat subscription model

The government was an early advocate of open source and Red Hat. Red Hat is now ubiquitous, in every state, every branch of the Department Of Defense, and in every cabinet-level agency. After ten years, we no longer hear about security or whether open source is ready for the enterprise. So what's next? How is Red Hat driving the next wave of innovation in government?
