Younger generation more optimistic about big data, study says

IT professionals aged 18 to 34 are much more optimistic than their elders that “big data” analysis will fundamentally change how business is conducted in the next few years, according to an IDG Enterprise survey.

Older IT professionals were more skeptical about the transformative power of big data, the survey found. The reason may be that “older respondents have seen many supposedly transformational technologies come and go throughout their careers. It’s possible that they’re simply less willing to predict that any particular trend … will be a source of fundamental change,” the IDG study said.

In addition, the 18 to 34 age group was more likely than other age groups to say that big-data projects ought to analyze social network comments for consumer sentiment.

The study is based on a survey of 724 IT decision-makers who reported that their organizations are currently implementing, planning or considering big-data projects. IDG Enterprise is a division of IDG Communications, Computerworld‘s parent company.

The IDG report also covers:

  • The top business objectives for data-driven initiatives
  • The top pain points in data projects
  • How IT is handling security for big data

Oracle Brings SPARC To The Cloud

Oracle Brings SPARC To The Cloud

Oracle has announced major new additions to the SPARC platform that for the first time bring the advanced security, efficiency, and simplicity of SPARC to the cloud. Built on the new SPARC S7 microprocessor, the latest additions to the SPARC platform include new cloud services, engineered systems and servers.

While the business benefits of the public cloud are increasingly clear, many organizations have yet to move enterprise workloads to the cloud due to performance, security and management concerns. To help eliminate those concerns and enable organizations to confidently move enterprise workloads to the cloud, the new SPARC platform is designed from the ground up to economically improve on cloud computing delivery of the most critical business applications and scale-out application environments.

The latest additions to the SPARC platform are built on the revolutionary new 4.27 GHz, 8-core/64-thread SPARC S7 microprocessor with Software in Silicon features such as Silicon Secured Memory and Data Analytics Accelerators, which delivers the industry’s highest per-core efficiency and enables organizations to run applications of all sizes on the SPARC platform at commodity price points. All existing commercial and custom applications will run on the new SPARC enterprise cloud services and solutions unchanged with significant improvements in security, efficiency and simplicity.

“We are still in the early phases of cloud computing adoption and as the market matures, organizations will increasingly move critical enterprise workloads to the cloud,” said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems, Oracle. “To enable our customers to take advantage of this next stage of cloud computing to speed innovation, reduce costs and drive business growth, we are focused on delivering proven enterprise-grade services such as the Oracle SPARC platform in the Oracle Cloud.”

Some of the key features of the new SPARC platform include:

Effortless Security: The latest additions to the SPARC platform are designed for security and compliance and utilize Silicon Secured Memory capabilities to address malware attacks and programming errors. Wide-key encryption ciphers and hashes enable a fully encrypted cloud with less than two percent performance overhead. In addition, security is further enhanced through verified boot, immutable content that prevents unauthorized changes, enforced secured updates and a trusted and secure hardware and software supply chain that does not rely on intermediaries.

Breakthrough Efficiency: By taking advantage of the open APIs in the processor and integrated Data Analytics Accelerators, which deliver up to 10x greater analytics performance spanning enterprise, big data and cloud applications, the latest additions to the SPARC platform reduce latency and cost. When compared to the x86 servers, the fully integrated S7-2 and S7-2L servers delivers up to 100 percent better per core efficiency, 1.7x better per core Java performance efficiency, 1.6x per core database OLTP performance efficiency, and 2-3x more bandwidth for high-traffic analysis and cloud apps.

Straightforward Simplicity: Taking integration a step beyond the server, the Oracle MiniCluster S7-2 Engineered System dramatically simplifies the top four most challenging aspects of enterprise computing: security and compliance; high availability; patching and administration; and performance tuning. By eliminating the need for a standard platform or OS and reducing security and database administration time and effort, the new Engineered System enables organizations to:

  • Secure systems by default by eliminating enterprise security expertise requirements
  • Automate compliance monitoring and auditing in order to maintain the secure state of the system over time
  • Make service resiliency effortless by taking advantage of a high availability operation that is engineered in to the hardware and software
  • Ensure the platform will always be up to date with the latest software and security enhancements through simple full stack patching
  • Enhance database and application performance through automatic performance tuning.

The new SPARC S7 processor-based cloud services and systems deliver commodity x86 economics and significant enterprise-class functionalities for security and analytics with Software in Silicon. They include new Oracle Cloud Compute platform services, the Oracle MiniCluster S7-2 Engineered System and Oracle SPARC S7 servers. These new products are designed to seamlessly integrate with existing infrastructure and include fully integrated virtualization and management for cloud.

The new Oracle SPARC Cloud service that is now part of the SPARC platform is a dedicated compute service to provide organizations with a simple, secure and efficient compute platform in the Cloud. The new service extends the complete suite of cloud services that Oracle provides to help organizations rapidly build and deploy rich applications — or extend Oracle Cloud Applications — on an enterprise-grade cloud platform.

To extend the security and performance benefits of the Oracle SuperCluster engineered systems to mid-size computing, Oracle has also introduced Oracle MiniCluster S7-2. Through full application and database compatibility with SuperCluster M7, Oracle MiniCluster enables organizations to reduce hardware and software costs at a fraction of the cost of commodity solutions. The new Oracle Engineered System is designed to support multi-tenant application and/or database consolidation, remote office/branch office computing demands and test/development environments.

Oracle has also introduced new additions to the SPARC server product line that extend the M7/T7 portfolio to address scale-out and cloud workloads at attractive new low price points. The new two-socket SPARC S7 servers are available in different configuration options that are optimized for either compute or storage and IO density and include Software in Silicon offload features for malware attack prevention, no compromise encryption and data analytics acceleration.

Firms in Regulated Industries Smarten Up on Cybersecurity, Encrypt More than Ever

Firms in Regulated Industries Smarten Up on Cybersecurity, Encrypt More than Ever

The number of businesses making extensive use of encryption spiked seven percent over the past year, the largest increase in over a decade, according to research released Wednesday by Thales. More than two in five companies (41 percent) now use extensive encryption, the 2016 Encryption Applications Trend Study shows.

Ponemon surveyed over 5,000 professionals from 14 industries in 11 countries on behalf of Thales for the 11th annual study. It found that because of regulations, privacy concerns, and the need to protect against breaches, companies in financial services, healthcare and pharmaceutical, and technology are leading encryption adoption.

RELATED: Despite Increased Awareness of Encryption, Many Internet Users Think it’s Too Complicated

“The increased usage of encryption can be traced to many factors, chief among them being cyber-attacks, privacy compliance regulations and consumer concerns,” John Grimm, senior director security strategy at Thales e-Security said. “Additionally, the continuing rise of cloud computing as well as prominent news stories related to encryption and access to associated keys have caused organizations to evolve their strategy and thinking with respect to encryption key control and data residency. Our global research shows that significantly more companies are embracing an enterprise-wide encryption strategy, and demanding higher levels of performance, cloud-friendliness, and key management capabilities from their encryption applications.”

The study also found that the way companies think about encryption applications changes as their encryption practices mature.

Companies with mature encryption strategies are more likely to deploy Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) broadly across encryption applications. SSL/TLS, database encryption, and application level encryption are the most common uses for HSMs, the study said.

Companies with mature strategies are much more likely to apply encryption to big data repositories, public cloud services, business applications, and private cloud infrastructure, respectively. They also value regional segregation, tamper resistant dedicated hardware, and support for both cloud and on-premise deployment more highly.

Support for encryption both in the cloud and on-premise has risen in consideration to the second most important feature of encryption applications, while companies now consider performance and latency the most important feature.

Earlier this year the 2016 Global Encryption Trends Study, another in the series of Thales-Ponemon reports, showed a gradual increase in whole-enterprise encryption strategies.

The spike in business’ use of encryption roughly coincides with efforts by numerous governments to limit encryption (or its effectiveness), including those of the US, UK, and Russia.

Dimension Data Unveils Next Generation Digital Technologies And Applications For Tour De France

Dimension Data Unveils Next Generation Digital Technologies And Applications For Tour De France

Dimension Data and Amaury Sport Organization (A.S.O.) have announced significant enhancements to the big data cycling analytics platform that will deliver real-time information to viewers, commentators and teams at the 2016 Tour de France.

Headlining the innovations is Race Center, a web-based application hosted on Dimension Data’s cloud platform and developed in partnership with A.S.O. that combines live race data, video, photographs, social media feeds, and race commentary, which combines with a new live tracking website to give viewers an immersive digital experience that goes beyond the television coverage of the race.

Race Center will become A.S.O.’s digital hub of the Tour de France going forward. And the live tracking website is a testament to the evolution of Dimension Data’s real-time big data collection, analytics, and digital platforms over the past 12 months.

Viewers will be able to get far richer and more accurate information from each of the 198 riders in 22 teams, including speed, distance between riders, composition of the race pelotons, wind speed and direction, as well as prevailing weather conditions.

Many of the new technologies that were trialed at last year’s race are now production-ready and feature significant improvements across the board. This year, the telemetry sensors installed under each rider’s seat that are responsible for transmitting live data boast a tenfold increase in transmission range. This means far fewer dropouts or ‘gaps’ in the data, resulting in more seamless communication and continuity throughout the race.

Dimension Data’s big data truck has also been upgraded and enlarged to accommodate the various television graphics, race coordination, data capture and analytics teams responsible for delivering the complete end-to-end data solution at the 2016 Tour de France. This is one of the biggest changes from last year, where each team worked separately, and continues the theme of collaboration and data integration made possible by the advancements in the technologies on display.

Adam Foster, Dimension Data’s group executive, Sports Practice, said, “The enhancements to this year’s solutions means we can tell richer and more enhanced stories as they happen, giving viewers, the media, cycling fans and race commentators deeper insights into some aspects of the sport that weren’t available until now. This year, we’re working with a much broader palette, which means access to more meaningful race data, race routes, riders and current weather conditions. What’s exciting this year is the ability to deliver all of this information to A.S.O. through a unified digital platform. This makes the quality of the data even more valuable for viewer engagement, and speaks directly to a generation of younger viewers who rely on new technologies such as social media and live video to engage with their world.”

Christian Prudhomme, director of the Tour de France, A.S.O, said, “The unprecedented growth in different social channels such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and live video at last year’s race demanded these technologies be embraced and enhanced for modern viewers.”

“The Tour de France is a flagship event in a modern world, and it’s only natural that we give our viewers access to as much quality content, entertainment and analysis as possible through the media they use every day,” said Prudhomme. “Together with Dimension Data, we’ve been working on new ways to appeal to our billions of viewers, and we’re excited to showcase the result of our efforts through Race Center. I believe the appeal of having access to multiple real-time video, social media and live race information from one responsive and intuitive interface will greatly enhance the quality of coverage of the Tour de France, and become an essential companion to the largest live televised event in the world.”

Blacknight Expands Infrastructure in Dublin with BT Ireland Partnership

Blacknight Expands Infrastructure in Dublin with BT Ireland Partnership

Irish host and registrar Blacknight has reached a deal to run services out of a BT Ireland data center in Dublin’s Citywest to support its growth in European markets, according to a report from the Irish Independent. The €4 million lease agreement reportedly spans multiple years, and involves a large amount of Blacknight’s data infrastructure.

Blacknight has been operating from four data centers, all in Ireland, including its own, which it opened in Carlow in early 2014. BT Ireland’s Citywest data center is a 183,000 square foot, carrier-neutral facility.

“This is a significant investment for Blacknight,” said Michele Neylon, chief executive of Blacknight. “It will enable us to completely refresh and enhance our data infrastructure and expand our network capacity.”

Blacknight has been broadening its portfolio from a focus on shared hosting and the Irish developers market to also serve the SME market across Europe as a one-stop shop for web services, with new offerings like DIY marketing tools from rankingCoach, which it launched last year.

How easy or profitable it will be for the company to address the European market going forward was made less certain by the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, also known as Brexit, on June 23.

Companies in the UK trying to keep up with changes to their legal obligations, for instance from newly minted EU laws governing data protection and other matters, will have to be confident in their local markets to make new investments while the details of Brexit are worked out.

Google opened its second data center in Dublin just ahead of the referendum.

The deal will give Vocus a fiber backhaul network that covers 17,000 kilometers and connects capital cities in Australia to remote and regional areas, according to the statement. The company will also gain the NWCS project to build a 2,000 kilometer submarine cable from Darwin to Port Hedland that will service the mining and offshore oil and gas industries in Western Australia, and a 4,600-kilometer submarine cable project connecting Singapore, Jakarta and Perth.

The deal continues a wave of consolidation by Australia’s second-tier telecommunications providers as they try to compete with Telstra Corp., the largest mobile company. Last year, Vocus agreed to buy fiber-optics carrier Amcom Telecommunications Ltd. and also took control of rival M2 Group Ltd. in a A$1.93 billion deal.

Nextgen Networks is controlled by Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, while CIMIC, formerly known as Leighton Holdings Ltd., owns 29 percent.

6 Mistakes Hosting, Cloud, Managed and Colo Providers Make in Today's Competitive Marketplace

6 Mistakes Hosting, Cloud, Managed and Colo Providers Make in Today's Competitive Marketplace

As nearly every industry under the sun gets disrupted by IT, there are unprecedented opportunities and challenges.

Regardless of company size, location, and vertical, many CEOs and CIOs find it nearly impossible to scale their IT infrastructure and secure it without help from their IT partners which include hosting providers, cloud service providers, managed service providers, and colocation providers.

However, the way that these decision makers and their influencers go about researching and purchasing these services has changed drastically in recent years.

Adapt to a World Where Buyers Control All

Disruptive forces such as search engines, social mobile, mobile devices, cloud computing, and selective consumption have totally turned the traditional sales and marketing playbook on its head. People are tired of being interrupted by obnoxious sales and marketing ploys and have fought back by adopting tools and habits that put them in the driver’s seat. Caller ID, spam blockers, DVRs, and satellite radio, for example, all scratch the same itch for control over unwanted marketing.

As these techniques spilled over from B2C (business to consumer) to B2B (business to business), CEOs, sales directors, and marketing directors of hosting, cloud, managed, and colo providers have had to confront a painful reality: they no longer hold all the cards and no longer control most of the sales cycle.

So pervasive is this lack of control that as much as 70 percent of the decision-making process and in some cases even more, is over before influencers and decision makers are ready for a sales conversation.

How to Get Found Earlier in the Hosting and Cloud Buyer’s Journey

To survive and thrive in this environment, it’s critical to get found by your ideal clients early, often, and in the right context.

Here are six of the biggest revenue eating mistakes companies make:

  1. Investing your entire budget on one small piece of the puzzle

To be effective, your revenue strategy should take into account differentiation, traffic generation, lead generation, sales cycle acceleration, and retention. All too often, hosting, cloud, managed, and colo providers only pursue a “point” strategy in isolation such as search optimization (SEO) or pay per click advertising (PPC). As an analogy, think about someone building a fantasy baseball team that blows their entire payroll on a single pitcher and catcher; there are virtually no funds left to invest in the other 23 players on the team that are needed to compete.

  1. Not establishing goals

It’s nearly impossible to know if you’re making progress if you don’t know where you’re going. All too often, IT providers chase after vanity metrics (Likes, Followers, etc.) and an ego-driven agenda with no regard whatsoever to more relevant goals such as client acquisition, revenue growth, sales cycle acceleration, or profit margin improvement.

  1. Treating all prospects the same

How many CIOs do you know that have the same priorities and worries as sales directors? What would happen if you tried to plan a breakfast seminar or webinar that appealed to both groups? Ten years ago, it might’ve been acceptable to lump everyone’s content strategy into vague categories such as “small business.”

Today there’s simply way too many things competing for your prospects’ highly-fragmented attention. Semi-relevant won’t cut it when you only have two or three seconds to convince a website visitor to stick around and not back-button out of your website

  1. Keeping sales, marketing, and services in silos

Ten years ago, it was no big problem if your sales team trash-talked your marketing team for doing “arts and crafts projects” or playing with company swag. Or conversely, if your marketing team stereotyped your sales team as a bunch of spoiled, lazy, overpaid, egomaniacs.

In today’s competitive marketplace where getting found early is critical for earning a seat at the table, these silos and toxic beliefs need to disappear and be replaced by much more productive sales and marketing alignment.

  1. Ignoring promotion and distribution

Too many IT providers write a piece of content, hit the publish button, auto-announce it to a few social profiles, and move on to their next priority. Huge mistake. Without promotion and distribution, even the most remarkable content will usually fail to reach its most receptive audience.

A simple rule of thumb: half the resources on content creation and half the resources on content promotion and distribution

  1. Not showing up early enough to earn trusted advisor status

If your sales team and executives feel like they’re constantly losing out on deals because the prospect’s mind was already made up, you’re probably absent from most of the buyer’s journey. If you’re getting backed into the corner and forced to slash prices and destroy your margins, again you’re probably not getting found early enough, by the right influencers and decision makers, in the right context.

Now that you know about these six mistakes, what can you do to proactively address these issues, differentiate your company from the competition, and grow revenue profitably?
