  • The Benefits and Challenges of Embracing Cloud Data Platforms in a Hybrid World
    The Benefits and Challenges of Embracing Cloud Data Platforms in a Hybrid World
    Matt Aslett of 451 Research Recorded: Nov 13 2018 21 mins
    Database workloads were, initially, comparatively slow to move to the cloud, but as the pace of enterprise cloud adoption accelerates 451 Research Voice of the Enterprise studies show that the relational database is now the most popular public cloud service currently in use – and seven of the top 12 public cloud services are data-related.

    As increasing volumes of data are generated and stored in the cloud, data processing and analytics workloads are also rapidly being drawn to the cloud, particular to support new data sources and applications, including IoT devices and stream processing, as well as machine learning.

    The majority of existing database workloads continue to run on-premises, however, and enterprises need to understand the benefits and challenges of running database workloads in the cloud, as well as managing data across hybrid environments – including on-premises datacenters, the edge, and multiple cloud environments.

    In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research VP, Data, AI and Analytics, 451 Research, will discuss the latest trends driving the adoption of cloud data platforms, as well as the key considerations to keep in mind when selecting a cloud data platform, including:
    • Cloud database adoption trends
    • Cloud database adoption drivers
    • Hybrid operational/analytic processing
    • AI and ML in the cloud
    • Barriers to cloud database adoption
    • Cloud migration patterns
    • Multi/hybrid cloud strategies
    • Avoiding cloud provider lock-in

    With so many new options available to IT professionals, it can be easy to lose track of the ultimate goal of technology; which is to serve the needs of business by providing insight, improving efficiency, increasing productivity, and targeting new markets. Today, most everyone is in a digital transformation mode of some sort; but we believe there is a better chance for long-term success if based on a comprehensive digital strategy that can serve as a roadmap for making intelligent choices that will fit seamlessly together over time. Advanced technologies such as hybrid cloud, software-defined infrastructure, AI/ML-based analytics, and evolved data management are powerful tools that are now available to companies of every size; but getting their full value for your business requires planning, foresight and communication.

    You are cordially invited to join Steven Hill, Senior Analyst, Applied Infrastructure at 451 Research and Vinny Lee, Chief Strategist at EchoStor Technologies for a roundtable discussion on creating a digital strategy that can leverage the evolving nature of IT infrastructure and data management in an increasingly hybrid IT world.
  • Today’s top security concerns: Are your ERP applications ready?
    Today’s top security concerns: Are your ERP applications ready?
    Scott Crawford, 451 Research & Cindy Valladares, Onapsis Recorded: Nov 1 2018 59 mins
    In recent 451 Research studies, enterprises continue to report three primary security concerns. These challenges affect overall cybersecurity strategies as well as an organization’s business-critical application security:

    •The maintenance of security hygiene is not just an ongoing issue for security and IT teams. It has become a front-and-center concern for businesses worldwide. Some of the world’s most high-profile security incidents of recent months are traceable back to keeping enterprise IT - and the applications on which global business depends - well maintained and secure. This highlights the need for continuous monitoring, update and maintenance of systems such as ERP.

    •A resurgence of compliance concerns has also risen to the fore. Ongoing requirements such as SOX continue to demand enterprise attention, while more recent mandates such as GDRP require new vigilance and highlight the importance of automating compliance and audit reporting.

    •The behavior of people has become one of business’s top security priorities, reflecting the impact of everything from insider threats to phishing attacks, account takeover and credential compromise. These threats can have high impact on the business when they target enterprise application systems the business relies on as its lifeline to critical operations – or when enterprises leave themselves exposed through gaps or drift in effective management of configuration and access control.

    ERP applications are among the most valuable assets organizations have and require specialized attention specific to their requirements to protect the business against these concerns. Join this webcast to hear from Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security with 451 Research, and Onapsis on how you can combat these common security challenges and ensure that the business-critical applications that house an organization’s crown jewels stay secure.

  • The Future of Work: The Liquid Enterprise, WorkOps and Workforce Intelligence
    The Future of Work: The Liquid Enterprise, WorkOps and Workforce Intelligence
    Research Director Chris Marsh, Senior Analyst Raul Castanon-Martinez and Senior Research Associate Rosanna Jimenez Recorded: Oct 30 2018 60 mins
    The nature of work is being entirely transformed by innovative new technologies. Catalyzed by businesses looking for greater strategic and operational agility and by the techno-empowerment of individuals, ownership over work execution is decentralizing away from IT and other centralized teams of specialists. This shift requires new understanding and new language.

    At 451 Research, we use the term ‘liquid enterprise’ to describe the massive responsiveness to changing market, customer and user requirements that the most innovative enterprises are looking to give affect to. ‘WorkOps’ describes how the nature of work is changing to make this possible – with intelligence, workflow automation, collaboration and reporting embedded and flexibly tessellating across the work execution lifecycle. WorkOps is opening up new possibilities for collective and connected yet highly personalized experiences that will supercharge work execution and drive employee engagement. It’s also giving rise to what we believe is a new enterprise software archetype we call the Workforce Intelligence Platform.

    This radically different future for work is significant enough for us to have to rethink the archetypes we use to understand and describe work.

    In this webinar, 451 Research analysts Chris Marsh, Raul Castanon-Martinez and Rosanna Jimenez will help you understand how to plan for the future for work that is unfurling:

    •What does the future of work look like?
    •What are the technology trends underpinning how work is changing?
    •How should you be thinking about employee engagement?
    •How do you leverage AI to improve work execution?
    •How can you become ‘liquid’ and put in place for WorkOps practices?
