Women @ Work: Thriving In The Technology Industry
Despite large cultural shifts and dedicated efforts to empower women in the workplace, the reality is that there is still much work to be done in the technology industry to elevate women as leaders
"Unfortunately, the pandemic's shadow looms as one of the biggest setbacks for gender equality we have seen in years. Data show that 1.3 times as many women than men actively considered opting out of the workforce last year.

However, there are encouraging signs coming from organizations around the world that have stepped up by implementing and supporting aggressive Women in Technology (WIT) and STEM programs to support gender equality in the workforce. Companies like Microsoft, Google, and Intel are building STEM into their social responsibility statements and making it a prominent part of their corporate agenda..."

Observability Can Help CIOs Solve Complex IT Problems
Observability is emerging as a critical consideration for today's DevSecOps teams, who are tasked with adapting to the radical transformation of IT environments
"At a high level," notes Sohini Bagchi in CXOtoday.com, "observability refers to the degree to which the internal state of a system can be inferred based on externally available outputs. Therefore, the more observable a system is, the more it will enable teams to understand, manage, and enhance its performance. And with IT teams struggling to cope with today's complex and dynamic IT environment, experts believe having a robust observability practice means fewer service disruptions, better customer experiences and more successful digital transformations. And all of this, leading to an improved bottomline..."

CISOs And The Trust Imperative
In 2021, digital transformation no longer counts as innovative; it's a baseline expectation for every enterprise
"The trust imperative is the next major shift enterprises will encounter," opines Jeff Pollard in a blog for Forrester. "New market leaders will not solely arise from technology platforms, sophisticated analytics, or sophisticated capital allocations. Instead, consumers and business leaders will increasingly turn to companies they can trust. And trust will move markets.

At Forrester's upcoming Security & Risk event on November 9-10, I'll deliver a keynote on the CISO's role in the trust imperative. Security leaders will learn why and how the trust imperative requires their full participation. There is no executive role that better aligns with the trust imperative than the CISO..."

"Many CIOs rose to the front lines of leadership during the COVID crisis," writes Mary K. Pratt in CIO, "as they accelerated their organizations' digital transformations to survive the pandemic and its economic fallout.

IT Scalability As A Competitive Advantage
The global pandemic waxes and wanes, but it has not slowed the massive digitization of data, often referred to as digital transformation, that is now challenging large enterprises and government organizations that are attempting to deploy new digital strategies.
"Since 2016, the digital transformation phenomena have generated 90% of the world's data and this astonishing growth shows no sign of slowing.

Digital transformation is rapidly increasing requirements for larger technology stacks to store, compute, analyze and connect the data. All of this requires more power as evidenced by the Valuates Report, which projects the global data center market for power increasing 43% from $15 billion in 2020 to $21.5 billion by 2026.

This increase in demand for power is commensurate with increases in data center space and connectivity required to accommodate expanding compute and storage environments in colocation data centers..."

Build A Better Strategic Plan For Your Function
Strategic plans are often created and then forgotten until the next planning cycle begins.
"That's one reason that strategic execution often takes too long and costs more than originally anticipated. In fact, only 8% of strategy leaders report a success rate of 90% or more on long-term strategic initiatives.

Done well, a strategic plan turns the enterprise strategy into specific initiatives and actions that provide a clear roadmap to execute the strategy and meet business goals..." - Gartner

By Toshiba, Why HDDs Will Remain Relevant?
Will not die out any more than tape has.
"Although we are seeing HDD drives disappear from many end devices, it doesn't mean the end for this storage medium," writes Rainer W. Kaese in StorageNewsletter.com.

"Rapidly growing amounts of data push storage space requirements in data centers and the cloud to the very limit, which means HDDs remain relevant and important. 2020 saw a total combined capacity of over 1ZB in HDDs delivered to the market for the first time.

Tape storage should no longer exist. When tape drives disappeared from desks in the 1990s because computers were equipped with internal HDDs large enough for archiving purposes, many experts predicted the imminent end of the technology - but that did not happen. Even today, there is a stable market for tape storage, as it is still essential for efficient and cost-effective archiving of data..."

Best Storage As-A-Service Providers 2021
Top picks: Google, Oracle, Dropbox, Amazon, Box, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, IBM
"Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) has only been with us for a little more than a decade, but it is hard to find someone who isn't using it. Whether it's via Microsoft OneDrive on their home computer, iCloud for their phone, or Dropbox, most people are using some form of online storage. And, many are using a lot of it, including entire businesses.

These days, online storage is being offered at excellent rates. Relatively small amounts of storage are given for free, and then most providers offer multiple tiers. From instantly available high-performance storage at the highest rates, service tiers grade down to lower performance and slower retrieval. The bottom, archival tier is very cheap with longer retrievals..."

Best Cross-Platform Data Migration Tool 2021
This article shows you our pick of tools that can help you move files and data. We cover some powerful general-purpose tools, a few of our daily go-to favorite picks, and a couple of powerful enterprise-level open source systems.
"When you have to move data from one computer to another or from a client to a server, you need tools that can reliably move your files and verify that the move was successful. In this guide, we're going to look at eight such tools, each of which solves a different sort of problem or gives you a different approach or interface to get the job done.

This category has a ton of software products. FTP software, for example, has been around for decades. Our approach was to look for products that worked (or had versions for) multiple platforms, as well as a deep feature set and a solid interface. Later, I'll show you two tools I personally use regularly and rely upon, as well as two enterprise-class tools for when you need to move vast amounts of data on an ongoing basis..."

Gartner: AI Is Moving Fast And Will Be Ready For Prime Time Sooner Than You Think
Companies have two to three years to lay the groundwork for successful use of generative AI, synthetic data and orchestration platforms.
Veronica Comb writes in TechRepublic, "Users want more than artificial intelligence can provide at the moment but those capabilities are changing fast, according to Gartner's Hype Cycle for Artificial Intelligence 2021 report. Gartner analysts described 34 types of AI technologies in the report and also noted that the AI hype cycle is more fast-paced, with an above-average number of innovations reaching mainstream adoption within two to five years.

Gartner analysts found more innovations in the innovation trigger phase of the hype cycle than usual. That means that end users are looking for specific technology capabilities that current AI tools can't quite deliver yet. Synthetic data, orchestration platforms, composite AI, governance, human-centered AI and generative AI are all in this early phase..."

"No matter the industry, the market, or size, every business can benefit from an ERP solution," says William Jepma in Solutions Review.

"However, choosing the right vendor and solution can be complicated, especially as a small business, where budget, functionalities, and scalability are crucial. SMBs need a solution that can meet their immediate needs and grow alongside them as their team and customer base expands over time. There are plenty of leading ERP solutions to choose from, but not all of them are qualified to meet the needs of small-to-medium-sized businesses..."

Zero Trust: There Is More Than One Attack Surface
The importance of zero-trust network architecture (ZTNA)
Chris Mayers writes in techradar.pro, "The security of your home will improve significantly when you complement the lock on your front door with an alarm and video surveillance system that tracks everyone knocking at your door, passing through it, and moving around your house. But this will not stop criminals from breaking your windows and quickly grabbing everything within reach, trying to manipulate and deactivate your alarm system remotely, or watching your every move to gather sensitive information. Similarly, a zero-trust network architecture (ZTNA) is an important first step to enhance business security, but a comprehensive zero-trust strategy requires taking additional steps..."

Building Blocks: How To Create A Privileged Access Management (PAM) Strategy
Privileged access management (PAM) has long been central to a good enterprise cybersecurity strategy
Dawn Blizard writes in SecurityIntelligence, "The pace of digital change is speeding up and reliance on the cloud increasing. So, businesses and agencies must develop new PAM strategies to keep up. Processes and tools that could support yesterday's on-premises IT rarely meet the needs of today.

The events of 2020 sped up the pace of digital adoption across workplaces. But even before that, IT and cybersecurity experts lacked confidence about whether their PAM tactics were working. Nearly 40% of the respondents to a mid-2019 survey from Remediant said they weren't sure their current PAM solution would be able to prevent all misuse of privileged accounts, and 8% weren't certain that it could prevent any..."

Five Tough Questions You Need To Answer About Ransomware
Ransomware is a top agenda item for executives and board of directors with organizations across the globe. Jim McGann presents five questions that every organization, whether a global enterprise or a micro-business, needs to have answers to with regards to this threat.
Jim McGann writes in Continuity Central, "In the past, ransomware attacks were less common and easier to combat, however, today with the rise of bitcoin and ransomware as a service, attacks are more common than ever.

Additionally, cyber criminals used to rely on simple business email compromise attacks and send out thousands of infected emails hoping someone would innocently click. Today, these bad actors have become far more sophisticated, utilizing machine learning and hidden approaches that easily circumvent existing security applications.

As a result, organizations have realized the inevitable: it's not if, but when the attack will occur. If your organization is relying on the status quo to continue your IT operations as is, you will soon be faced with a few tough questions from your executives - questions for which you will need to have a confident and intelligent answer..."

The Post-Quantum Cryptography World Is Coming: Here's How To Prepare

But think about this: If you're skipping over news articles about quantum computing and post-quantum cryptography, you're doing the same thing in relation to your business that town planners seem to do relative to new construction - waiting for the negative impacts before fixing the issue.

Much (if not most) of the time, these changes only happen after negative impacts come in force. People will go to council meetings over accidents and stop-and-go traffic. Have you ever wondered why town planners don't proactively improve the roads before the new construction is finished? ..."
