Finance leaders believe data management is a burden on businesses. Yet less than half of organisations have a data management strategy in place. But data management strategies positively impact security across all lines of business.
Poor data management practices inevitably lead to poor outcomes, with bad decisions based on bad data. Data must also be protected, with weak practices leading to cyber breaches. And the reputational damage to an organisation’s brand cannot be underestimated. However, when managed well, data offers a competitive advantage. In the past, data was typically informed historical reporting, with internal needs and compliance taking priority.
There is a new data paradigm. Data is the new currency in the digital age.

Things aren't what they used to be in the enterprise. Your employees are mobile and they're storing and accessing data in cloud apps—often in disparate networks. That presents a serious challenge for old-school threat-centric security models that force you to make decisions with little insight or broader context.
Download our eBook to find out how a human-centric, risk-adaptive approach to data security can free up your overwhelmed security team to focus on investigations that really matter.

The emphasis on fast flash technology concentrates much attention on hot, frequently accessed data. However, budget pressures preclude consuming such premium-priced capacity when the access frequency diminishes. Yet many organizations do just that, unable to migrate effectively to lower cost secondary storage on a regular basis.
In this white paper, explore:
• How the relative proportion of hot, warm, and cooler data changes over time
• New machine learning (ML) techniques that sense the cooling temperature of data throughout its half-life
• The role of artificial intelligence (AI) in migrating data to the most cost-effective tier.

Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

Current methods for accessing complex, distributed information delay decisions and, even worse, provide incomplete insight. This paper details the impact of Unified Information Access (UIA) in improving the agility of information-driven business processes by bridging information silos to unite content and data in one index to power solutions and applications that offer more complete insight.
Trupanion, a Seattle-based medical insurance provider for cats and dogs, needed to find data insights quickly. With only 1% of pet owners insured, the process of evaluating a claim to approve or deny payment was manual and time-consuming. Building accurate predictive models for decision-making required manpower, time, and technology that the small company simply did not have.
DataRobot Cloud, built on AWS, helped Trupanion create an automated method for building data models using machine learning that reduced the time required to process claims from minutes to seconds. Join our webinar to hear how Trupanion transformed itself into an AI-driven organization, with robust data analysis and data science project prototyping that empowered the company to make better decisions and optimize business processes in less time and at a reduced cost.

The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.

Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.

One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Big Data is not just a big buzzword. Government agencies have been collecting large amounts of data for some time and analyzing the data collected to one degree or another. Big data is a term that describes high volume, variety and velocity of information that inundates an organization on a regular basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analyzed for insights that lead to better decisions and better services.
