In An Age Of Chip Shortages, Citrix Software And SaaS Come To The Rescue
The global semiconductor shortage continues to place severe constraints on IT departments.
The U.S. Department of Commerce reports that demand for chips has risen by 17 percent from 2019 to 2021, with little growth in supply. The mismatch in supply and demand has led to delays and even cancellation of critical digital transformation initiatives.

This shortage has served as a wake-up call for technology leaders. There is a growing realization that excessive dependency on hardware vendors can jeopardize digital transformation initiatives. These technology leaders are accelerating their move to the cloud.

6 Smart Practices For Better Business-IT Alignment
From ride-alongs to reverse-embedded IT, CIOs are establishing new approaches to bridging the business-IT divide - and devising inventive strategies with business alignment top of mind.
"Do you wish business executives and IT could work together better, collaborating on projects and fully sharing information?" asks Minda Zetlin in CIO.

"If you're like most IT leaders, the answer is very much yes. The benefits of improved business-IT collaboration include things such as projects that better fit business goals, improved change management, and better buy-in for new initiatives.

Not only that, collaborating well with the business is a survival skill for today's technology leaders. In 2021, Gartner research showed that more technologists were being recruited for functions outside IT than within it, says Darren Topham, senior director analyst at Gartner. Meanwhile, with easy-to-use, cloud-based, no-code or low-code solutions readily available, tech-savvy business professionals can handle much of their own technology without any help at all..."

7 Leadership Traits Major Enterprises Look For In A CIO
Are you ready to make the move to a big company? Better stretch yourself now to ensure you have what top-tier enterprises seek in a top-post IT leader.
John Edwards writes in CIO, "While many, perhaps even most, CIOs are content to head operations at a small- or midsize enterprise, others have loftier ambitions. These individuals wish to climb to the very top of the IT career ladder.

CIOs at major enterprises - particularly those with market capitalizations measured in the tens or hundreds of billions of dollars - tend to be a different breed than their lower-level counterparts. IT chiefs at the largest enterprises are typically expected to possess knowledge and skills that may be minor, or even completely unnecessary, talents at smaller organizations..."

Amazon Cloud Services: 5 Things CIOs Should Know
Exploring the many options and technologies around cloud services can be daunting. Navigate Amazon Web Services with this expert advice in mind
"The modern CIO doesn't really need an introduction to Amazon Web Services. To say that AWS is already well-known is an understatement," opines Kevin Casey in The Enterprisers Project.

"IT leaders can still use a helping hand, however, in navigating the massive scope and scale of AWS while making sure their cloud strategy is tightly focused and aligned with business goals.

That's a taller task than it might first appear. AWS and other public clouds are called "hyperscale" clouds for a reason. Keeping up with the vast number of technologies and services available can become overwhelming. Moreover, adopting and using said technologies and services just because they exist doesn't promise any tangible results other than a bill..."

Three In Five CIOs Would Replace Half Or More Of Their Current Technology If Given Opportunity
Research commissioned by Lenovo reveals CIOs are more involved than ever before in areas outside their traditional technology purview, such as business model transformation, corporate strategy, and sustainability
A new global research study from Lenovo[1] reveals how the CIO role has evolved, shedding light on growing areas of responsibility and increasing influence in the C-Suite, as well as removing barriers to business growth.

Today, technology is the nervous system that connects corporate strategy, finance, innovation, operations, and talent. CIOs are increasingly tasked with connecting with key stakeholders across the organization to ensure alignment and drive execution. With IT enmeshed in every facet of a business, CIOs believe that their organizations must continue to invest in digital transformation to remain relevant.

Why MFA Alone Isn't Enough For True Cybersecurity
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) was once a foreign terminology, but today, with the myriad of hacks and data breaches dominating headlines, it's fair to say that most individuals now see MFA as a no-brainer - for now.
Bojan Simic writes in Cyber Defense Magazine, "When thinking about MFA, both companies and consumers alike consider it to be a safer, more secure option. And while that isn't necessarily untrue (as it is safer than single-factor authentication), it doesn't bypass the increasingly large password issue developing across digital mediums. In fact, despite widespread MFA adoption, account takeover fraud generated a $3.3 billion loss in 2020.

Ever since the 'password' was invented in the 1960s, it has been a topic of contention. The intent is always positive; but the efficacy is an ongoing debate - especially with the pace at which technology is evolving..."

Storage Facing Trillion-Row Database Apocalypse
A new era of large-scale analytics and storage is opening up ahead of us. Ocient, Imply, VAST Data, and WEKA are four startups positioned to store and access data among hundreds of petabytes or trillions of database rows in seconds.
Chris Mellor writes in Blocks & Files, "They all employ massively parallel access techniques in one way or another and fundamentally use software rather than hardware to achieve their performance levels.

Update. SingleStore's database can chew through a trillion rows/second using 448 Xeon Platinum 8180 Skylake cores, 28 per server, as its blog describes. The data was stored on SSDs, though that wasn't really significant since the queries were run warm-start, so the data was already cached in memory. The network was 10-gigabit Ethernet..."

2022-23 DCIG Top 5 Multi-Cloud SDS Object Storage Solutions
DCIG is pleased to announce the 2022-23 DCIG TOP 5 Multi-Cloud SDS Object Storage Solutions. These products represent the TOP 5 SDS-based object storage solutions organizations should consider for multi-cloud deployments.
"Enterprise storage used to be only purchased as an appliance, with proprietary software inextricably bound to its hardware," notes Todd Dorsey in DCIG.

"Software-defined storage (SDS) changed this paradigm by separating the software from its underlying hardware. Decoupling the software from its physical storage opens many benefits.

Early applications for software-defined storage were limited, on-premises use-cases, but maturing SDS brought expanded features and deployment options. SDS reached out of the data center to the cloud. Organizations could tier data to cloud storage and even run SDS in the cloud within virtualized server environments..."

All The Sources And Sinks Going To Object Storage
The vocabulary of sources and sinks are beginning to appear in the world of data storage as we witness the new addition of data processing frameworks and the applications in this space.
cfheoh writes in Stoarge Gaga, "I wrote about this in my blog 'Rethinking data. processing frameworks systems in real time' a few months ago, introducing my take on this budding new set of I/O characteristics and data ecosystem. I also started learning about the Kappa Architecture (and Lambda as well), a framework designed to craft and develop a set of amalgamated technologies to handle stream processing of a series of data in relation to time.

In Computer Science, sources and sinks are considered external entities that often serve as connectors of input and output of disparate systems. They are often not in the purview of data storage architects. Also often, these sources and sinks are viewed as black boxes, and their inner workings are hidden from the views of the data storage architects..."

How Enterprises Can Ensure NVMe Security In 2.0
Today's world demands airtight security more than ever. Key NVMe security features, such as namespaces, the Lockdown command and TLS in NVMe over TCP, keep data safe.
Dave Raffo writes in SearchStorage, "NVMe is the dominant interface for enterprise SSDs, and both its uses and features are expanding. However, greater adoption of any enterprise technology shines a light on its gaps.

As with all storage, security is more about protecting data on drives than the drives themselves. In many ways, NVMe SSDs use similar security as other types of drives -- particularly in the areas of encryption and key management.

New developments specific to NVMe security bear watching. These include NVMe-oF and features added to the NVMe 2.0 specification released in mid-2021..."

Simon Watkins writes in CIO, "Just a few years ago, enterprises were rapidly shifting to a cloud-first IT model in the expectation that moving operations to the cloud would solve many, if not all, of IT's roadblocks, while offering few, if any, drawbacks. The public cloud delivered a new kind of IT and a new kind of experience - scalable, seamless, and simplified.

Enterprise Guide To Robotic Process Automation
RPA is a fast-growing category of software, driven by global enterprise digital transformation efforts. Is it ready for prime time? This guide covers the benefits, best practices and use cases today.
"Judging by the interest in the concept," notes James M. Connolly in InformationWeek, "it looks like IT people, and even many businesspeople, have figured out the first lesson in dealing with robotic process automation: There are no robots, no androids, not even one little R2D2.

RPA is about letting computers, software and, often, voice technology take over the routine, repetitive and boring business tasks that humans don't really want to do. In doing so, the computer doesn't complain but does work 24x365 without needing days off. Those processes are the workflows and rules that human business leaders define..."

What Is DisplayHDR
High dynamic range (HDR) monitors are becoming mainstream, but their performance can vary widely. So how do you know what HDR performance level you are getting with a particular monitor? The VESA DisplayHDR certification hopes to solve this issue.
HDR allows a more lifelike visualization of images and videos. A display achieves HDR by representing brighter highlights, darker shadows, and a wider range of colors than SDR or standard dynamic range. Simply put, the HDR displays can showcase more realistic images and videos.

Managing Hidden Project Costs For Better ROI
The most common argument for outsourcing is cost savings. And in the face of a challenging economic climate, cost figures largely in the decision to outsource IT projects and business processes.
While cost-effectiveness is a huge deciding factor for offshoring, cheaper labour and service rates should not be the only measures of the possible financial success of a project. In fact, long-term benefits are extracted from the industry expertise of vendors that could make up for the investments in communication, time zone overlaps, and travel.

A human resources management expert, Dr John Sullivan, advises that metrics and measures should be identified right after selecting the vendor. A competitive business environment typically requires a higher return on investment.

Linux Security Study Reveals When, How You Patch Matters
Computer security only happens when software is kept up to date. That should be a basic tenet for business users and IT departments. Apparently, it isn't. At least for some Linux users who ignore installing patches, critical or otherwise.
"A recent survey sponsored by TuxCare, a vendor-neutral enterprise support system for commercial Linux, shows companies fail to protect themselves against cyberattacks even when patches exist," writes Jack M. Germain in LinuxIInsider.

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is a protocol designed to restrict who can use an organization's domain as the source of an email message. SPF blocks spammers and other attackers from sending email that appears to be from a legitimate organization
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) does not place any restrictions on the source address for emails, so SPF defines a process for the domain owners to identify which IP addresses are authorized to forward email for their domains.

The SPF protocol was published in 2014 by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in RFC 7208, "Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email, Version 1." SPF is an IETF Proposed Standard specification.
