Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo

I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
La nostra indagine indica nel complesso che la storia di IaaS sta diventando interessante e ha un ruolo preciso in uno scenario IT in evoluzione. Ci sono ancora dubbi e preconcetti, che vanno tuttavia scemando con la graduale adozione da parte delle aziende e il manifestarsi dei primi vantaggi. Nel complesso, la tecnologia IaaS è molto più facile da integrare di quanto non si creda: infatti quasi due terzi (64%) degli utenti di lungo corso indica che la migrazione è stata più semplice del previsto. È facile prevedere che il quadro sarà sempre più positivo con l’aumentare delle aziende che adottano le nuove soluzioni IaaS avanzate ora disponibili sul mercato.
Le divisioni IT hanno utilizzato IaaS per liberare il personale da compiti ripetitivi quali la manutenzione dell’hardware e l’aggiornamento del software. Ma non sempre sono stati sfruttati i possibili vantaggi correlati al processo di adozione. Quasi un quarto delle aziende (il 22%) sostiene che se dovesse ripetere l’implementazione di IaaS, utilizzerebbe strumenti per la migrazione automatica. Oracle Ravello, ad esempio, permette alle aziende di trasferire automaticamente i carichi di lavoro dai data center esistenti alle piattaforme cloud senza costose o rischiose modifiche.
Per avere successo nella realtà competitiva di oggi, le aziende devono svincolarsi dai limiti imposti dall’infrastruttura IT legacy. L’acquisto di hardware e la manutenzione di enormi data center per l’esecuzione dei sistemi informatici appartengono al passato: la gestione e la manutenzione dell’infrastruttura sono semplicemente troppo costose.
Un recente sondaggio di Gartner ha rivelato che oltre l’80% dei CIO ritiene che l’Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) sia un’opzione perseguibile e il 10% degli stessi già la considera la scelta predefinita per l’infrastruttura. L’utilizzo di un’infrastruttura con un modello di servizio elastico e con pagamento in base al consumo non solo riduce i costi e le preoccupazioni, ma consente inoltre alle organizzazioni IT di dedicarsi all’innovazione per favorire la crescita aziendale.
The rapid pace of change in attitudes to IaaS underlines how quickly it has become a key part of enterprise IT. Even in the past three months, adoption levels and positive attitudes toward IaaS have grown.
IaaS was originally seen as a way to reduce overall spend and shift budgets from capital expenditure to operating expenditure, and there is no doubt that it has done both. But it is striking how businesses have grown to appreciate the wider benefits of IaaS from greater productivity to freeing staff from routine maintenance in order to work on more value-adding projects.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
A recent Gartner survey found that more than 80 percent of CIOs consider Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to be a viable option and 10 percent of CIOs already consider it to be their default choice for infrastructure. Utilizing an infrastructure with an elastic, pay-as-you-go service model not only reduces costs and worries, but also frees IT organizations to innovate in ways that will enhance business growth.
In the past, companies have been able to adopt and utilize a business-as-usual IT infrastructure and get away with it. They purchased hardware to keep pace with data growth, managed multiple servers, and hired an ever-increasing workforce to ensure their organization succeeded. But with diminishing budgets and fewer resources, these institutions can no longer afford to carry out each and every one of these processes to maintain their IT infrastructure.
There is no doubt that enterprise cloud is a new and improved IT strategy. Cloud services have proven to improve organizational agility and reduce the burden of IT infrastructure and cost. Moving to the cloud is no longer a question of “if” but “when” and “how.” Most enterprises we interviewed are moving to cloud in phases over time and matching workloads to their perceptions of a vendor’s cloud capabilities that will best support their objectives. Many will require the ability and flexibility to support multivendor cloud and multiple deployment choices (e.g., public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud).
So, while the advertising industry is in the midst of profound change, it’s hard to be certain about the form that it will take in future. There’s good reason to be optimistic, rather than pessimistic. Firstly, as we saw earlier, the proliferation of digital platforms means that there are now more canvases for creativity than ever before. And secondly, recent discoveries in psychology and behavioural science have highlighted how human decision making – in any context – is often unconscious or non-rational. As a result, the range of problems where creative communication can offer a solution is wider than ever previously realised.
Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
Traditional backup systems fail to meet the database protection and recovery requirements of modern organizations. These systems require ever-growing backup windows, negatively impact performance in mission-critical production databases, and deliver recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in hours or even days, failing to meet the requirements of high-volume, high transactional databases -- potentially costing millions in lost productivity and revenue, regulatory penalties, and reputation damage due to an outage or data loss.

MongoDB is an open-source, document database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores, which are fast and scalable, and relational databases, which have rich functionality. Instead of storing data in rows and columns as one would with a relational database, MongoDB stores JSON documents with dynamic schemas.
Customers should consider three primary factors when evaluating databases: technological fit, cost, and topline implications. MongoDB's flexible and scalable data model, robust feature set, and high-performance, high-availability architecture make it suitable for a wide range of database use cases. Given that in many cases relational databases may also be a technological fit, it is helpful to consider the relative costs of each solution when evaluating which database to adopt.
