Data environments are growing exponentially. Not only is there more data, but there are more data sources. At the same time, the value of unlocking that data and using it to make business decisions is also increasing.
For the business user, understanding this complex data and unlocking its potential is the key to staying ahead of the competition.
For IT organizations, complex data can be the bane of many business analytics programs, causing all kinds of trouble in data management and hindering system performance.
Size of data and number of disparate data sources are two key drivers of complexity. The bigger the data, the more effort needed to query and store it. The more data sources (data tables) the more effort that is needed to prepare the data for analysis.
The data complexity matrix describes data from both of these standpoints. Your data may be Simple, Diversified, Big, or Complex. When considering a Business Analytics program, different approaches are better suited for each data state.
Implementing Hadoop can be complex, costly, and time-consuming. It can take months to get up and running, and each new user group typically requires their own infrastructure.
This webinar will explain how to tame the complexity of on-premises Big Data infrastructure. Tony Baer, Big Data analyst at Ovum, and BlueData will provide an in-depth look at Hadoop multi-tenancy and other key challenges.
Join us to learn:
- The pitfalls to avoid when deploying Big Data infrastructure
- Real-world examples of multi-tenant Hadoop implementations
- How to achieve the simplicity and agility of Hadoop-as-a-Service – but on-premises
Gain insights and best practices for your Big Data deployment. Find out why data locality is no longer required for Hadoop; discover the benefits of scaling compute and storage independently. And more.
Web application security is threatened not just by hackers but also by the complexity (and related cost) of keeping up with security challenges. Due to the ever-increasing strategic and financial importance of e-commerce and other web services, web application security is of paramount importance for nearly every organization. The difficulties of web application security are compounded by the growing complexity of web applications, the nearly constant changes in site content and the increasing sophistication of web application attacks. Add in migration to cloud-based and hosted environments and the cost of application security can start to become unmanageable.
Join this webinar as Trustwave discusses 4 approaches to reduce cost and complexity. Trustwave has helped hundreds of organizations adopt these approaches and secure their web applications with a solution offering advanced capabilities (continuous learning mode, bi-directional analysis, etc.), flexible architecture, and multiple delivery options to simplify your operations.

IBM: Reducing Risk and ComplexityRead more >
Enterprise, including particular Financial Services networks, poses unique challenges to monitor and manage. While performance remains a top priority to maintain competitiveness, regulatory compliance, security assurance and risk mitigation must also be addressed. Market data messages (such as FIX protocol) and, in some cases, proprietary protocols, can add to the complexity, as these may require intelligent traffic capture that performs filtering beyond Layer 4.
At the same time, many organizations are consolidating, co-locating and homogenizing facilities, while upgrading to support increasing usage, energy regulations, and speeds of 100Gbps and 40Gbps. The result is higher density in the data center. Maintaining high performance and security on a large scale requires that the monitoring tools have comprehensive visibility across the data center and are able to keep pace with network changes.
Join VSS Monitoring to discover how high-density visibility solutions paired with specialized traffic capture capabilities—including packet optimization and DPI—can reduce per-port costs, scale performance and security monitoring tools, and eliminate deployment complexity.
Topics covered will include:
•Large data center monitoring challenges for enterprises
•Addressing tool port contention and specialized applications
•Increasing tool coverage without increasing rack footprint
•Leveraging 10G and 1G tools across 100G and 40G networks
Enterprise cloud use is growing rapidly. However, to achieve the significant benefits advertised for cloud computing, enterprises need to get serious about cloud management to avoid making cloud false starts.
Because of the complexity of modern IT environments, enterprise cloud computing must be able to deliver extremely advanced systems– from private to public and across all infrastructures. Further, deploying mission-critical workloads in the cloud requires a mature approach to management, governance and compliance – so enterprise cloud management needs to integrate with existing IT processes.
Attend this webinar to learn how to overcome the key challenges faced in deploying industrial grade cloud systems. From private to hybrid cloud management and across cloud governance and optimization, you’ll learn what market-leading enterprises are doing to ensure a robust, industrial-strength cloud computing strategy for the long term.
Your applications aren’t getting any easier and the systems they run on aren’t getting less complicated. Growing businesses mean growing IT infrastructures and increasing complexity. To ensure business service reliability and an excellent customer experience, your application performance management tools must be able to keep pace with the changes, growth and complexity. Is traditional APM – using thresholds and baselines to alert for possible failure – enough or is more needed? In this Webcast, featured guest J.P. Garbani, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., examines what is driving complexity, why it’s making ensuring business service performance more difficult and what is required to keep pace now and into the future.Read more >
Today’s IT environment is full of new technology, trends, vendor proprietary solutions, virtualization strategies, BIG DATA, Enterpise applications and much more. Although there have been great advances with innovation and performance, the current scene is a setting for complexity that comes with various interfaces as well as de-centralized management of daily trends or key performance indicators.
A well-managed storage environment is constantly evolving, and managing storage resources effectively has become increasingly complicated. The transition to virtualized machines, software-defined storage, and cloud computing has created greater dynamics and has made managing a global infrastructure even more difficult. In this session, you will hear about increasing asset visibility and managing a global heterogeneous storage infrastructure. We will cover topics including capacity and utilization planning, application to spindle performance, as well as centralized storage resource management and reporting. You will get practical advice that you can use to determine the value of a storage resource management solution.
