Disrupt Yourself or be Uberized

Informatica Blog - Wed, 05/10/2017 - 02:18
As I revisit some of my most recent conversations on digital disruption with automotive and logistics CIOs, it has become apparent to me that they are all working on proposals on how to change their organizations’ business models. Design, test, sell and service a car every 5,000 miles is no longer good enough and orchestrating bespoke transportation services is neither. Per Robert Sanchez, CEO of Ryder (speaker at speaker at InformaticaWorld 2017 in San Francisco this month), these secular trend...

Hard Disk Storage is Cheaper than Ever: Why Do You Still Use Tape?

Syncsort Blog - Tue, 05/09/2017 - 13:21
Which commodity has for the past several decades, consistently improved in quality while substantially declining in price? If you answered hard disk storage, you’re correct. Storage on hard drives today is much less expensive than it once was, and it performs much better. This means that if your storage strategy dates from a decade ago, it may be time to rethink it. Allow me to reminisce a bit. My first computer, an IBM PS/2 that my grandparents gave me circa 1992, came with a hard disk th...

Big Data Analytics Talent is Just Waiting to be Tapped

Informatica Blog - Fri, 05/05/2017 - 15:35
Last year, data analytics guru Tom Davenport poo-pooed the notion that there’s a shortage of data scientist skills. Yes, they were, at one point, as “rare as vegetarian dogs.” Lately, however, while “there may not be a glut of data scientists, but they are much easier to find and hire than they used to be. If you can offer only a decent salary, you’ll probably be OK. And even the most traditional business can hire them these days.” He observes that there are now more than 100 degree programs acr...

Data Loss vs. Data Leakage Prevention: What’s the Difference?

Informatica Blog - Wed, 05/03/2017 - 19:00
I had thought that data leakage and data loss are one and the same, until I had a discussion with our CISO, Roger Hale. He gave me his thoughts on the difference between the two. While data loss and data leakage can both result in a data breach, the detection and handling of data loss prevention and data leakage prevention must both be considered. Data loss prevention focuses on the detection and prevention of sensitive data exfiltration and/or lost data, and includes use cases from a lost or st...

I think it’s time to stop worrying and learn to love artificial intelligence. AI is coming whether you like it or not – and I believe it will have huge and amazing benefits for...
