Wherever an organization is in the world today, it relies on IT in its quest to drive revenues, improve profit margins, and service customers. Yet most small- to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and government agencies select IT infrastructure solutions that drive higher costs and limit the business' ability to respond to changes in the marketplace. This is driven by perceptions that many IT executives running Linux and open source applications have regarding server platforms. Specifically, they erroneously believe that their best option is to execute the applications either on standalone or virtualized on x86 servers. RFG finds that there are 10 compelling reasons why an IBM LinuxONE solution is superior to an x86 one, including the fact that LinuxONE is a better, more economical choice.

Industry research suggests there is significant interest in making DevOps more secure. In fact, Gartner reports "by 2021, DevSecOps practices will be embedded in 80% of rapid development teams, up from 15% in 2017." To help you effectively integrate security into your organizations DevOps practice, Tenable encourages you to read the Gartner report, 10 Things to Get Right for Successful DevSecOps. Loaded with specific detailed recommendations, the report covers topics including:
- Integrating security and compliance testing seamlessly into DevOps processes
- Scanning for known vulnerabilities and miscongurations in all open-source and third-party components
- Scaling infosec into DevOps by using a security champion model
a recent Forrester Consulting research report shows that tools creep and lack of visibility are big problem areas for companies. Additionally, the research showed that only 24 percent of companies could provision infrastructure in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.
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.

Spark, development teams can accelerate analytics
applications by orders of magnitude
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.
