Advancing 3rd Platform Strategies on Modern Infrastructures in 2015

first_imgOn Monday, I discussed how enterprises can extend their IT environments in 2015 to deploy big data and analytic workloads including enterprise Hadoop. In today’s blog, I envision the requisite evolution of data centers that are better suited to drive value from third platform applications in 2015 and beyond.Why is the third platform so significant and disruptive? In the last decade, IT has progressed to drive higher levels of availability, performance, security and adaptability for organizations to run business applications. This has created significant value to businesses, but still IT operations have been impeded by the rigid processes, siloed organizations and challenges of accessing and extracting value from structured and unstructured data.The third platform is the next step in digitizing assets for the business. It is vital for organizations to embrace mobile assets and data with locational context, exchange information across private or public clouds, manage larger, faster data sets regardless of format, and incorporate exceptional insight from social media into operational activities.The stakes are even higher for IT to empower businesses to differentiate themselves with the third platform applications, instead of simply getting to the baseline of running the second platform applications.  We also see customers interested further in implementing enterprise Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to simplify deployment and scaling for a large number of emerging applications.In the last year, VCE has helped customers become more competitive – and not only through innovative solutions – but also from the organizational and process transformation of running IT on an integrated system.Often enough, organizational changes, such as adapting processes to suit new technologies, can be more challenging for enterprises than technological advancement. Many organizations continue to rely on legacy technologies because it’s risky and challenging to change how the business operates.Cultures and behaviors are often even harder to adjust in getting value from the third platform. Being at the forefront of IT infrastructure evolution, VCE recognizes the importance of incorporating the most innovative, value driving advancements from our investors into the VCE solutions.  Our pre-validated, factory-built approach with VCE support help our customers focus on transforming the business, while VCE makes IT simpler, more predictable and more repeatable when deploying and expanding the converged infrastructures across the enterprise.VCE naturally extends this principle to the third platform applications. As business requirements and demands increase, customers can easily expand through VCE’s modular and flexible approach. The Vblock Systems and VCE™ technology extension for EMC® Isilon® storage provide the breadth and depth of technologies needed to optimize for dynamic business needs.To further study the industry shifts, VCE sponsored IDC’s technology spotlight on “The Importance of a Modular and Flexible Approach to Integrated Infrastructure.”[footnote]IDC Technology Spotlight: The Importance of a Modular and Flexible Approach to Integrated Infrastructure, November 2014[/footnote] This IDC Technology Spotlight examines converged infrastructure systems that provide modular and scalable options for changing business demands. IDC specifically examines the VCE Vblock® System 540 with EMC XtremIO scale-out all-flash arrays and VCE™ technology extension for EMC® Isilon®.These solutions drive lower latency and aggregate traditional and new types of workloads without compromising enterprise features. In particular, a modular, flexible architecture with easy upgrades, expansion and reusability has been the core tenet in increasing business value with insight and transactions from billions of users and millions of applications generated on the continuous basis.“With expanded use of unique scale-out, architecture, using all-flash and file-optimized storage solutions, IT can implement integrated infrastructure as an efficient way to provision systems at the project onset. Such modern use can also help IT meet or exceed service levels, empowering business to act on time-sensitive patterns, reliably complete high-volume transactions, and maintain continuity across data centers. “Ashish Nadkarni, Research Director, IDCShareWe expect 2015 to be the pivotal year for organizations to solidify their third platform investment strategies, including the reexamination of the infrastructure as part of the next progression of running IT for value creation. Breakthrough business models and discovery of new opportunities with run rate businesses rise through the effective use of third platform applications. VCE is excited to be part of this transformational journey by continuing to innovate on the modern infrastructures.“Contribute to the Conversation – What is your organization’s top business priority? How can IT aid the business through emerging applications and workloads that augment your existing investments? How do scale-out, consolidated solutions with low migration risks fit into your IT infrastructure?Sharelast_img read more

Nanovics donate building to ND

first_imgStudents of political science, economics and sociology can expect a new academic home in fall 2017. A gift from Robert and Elizabeth Nanovic, the largest in the history of the College of Arts and Letters, will fund Nanovic Hall on Notre Dame Avenue, south of the Hesburgh Center for International Studies. The building will contain classrooms, faculty offices and laboratory and research space for those three departments. John McGreevy, dean of the College of Arts and Letters, said the gift would be a “breakthrough” for Notre Dame’s social sciences. “We’ve never had a building for the social sciences at Notre Dame,” he said. “It’s going to have great space in the building with classrooms and faculty offices and space for research, so we’re going to get the kind of student contact – where students come out of class and go right to a faculty office or right to a research lab – that we don’t always get at Notre Dame’s academic buildings. I think it could be – to use an overused word – really transformational for those departments.” Robert Nanovic is a 1954 graduate of Notre Dame who has served on the advisory council of the College of Arts and Letters since 1993, McGreevy said.   “[The Nanovics] are longtime and extraordinary benefactors to the University. They’ve given money for scholarships, for programs, most notably thus far for the Nanovic Institute for European Studies,” McGreevy said.   McGreevy said the choice to combine economics, political science and sociology was aimed at consolidating the three departments into one location from buildings across campus. These departments also share a strong connection with the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, he said. “They’re the three departments that probably have the closest ties to our international institutes,” McGreevy said. Professor Rory McVeigh, chair of the Department of Sociology, said he expects more interchange among the departments and the international institutes. “I think that one of the main benefits will be bringing us closer together with colleagues in political science and in economics, but also bringing us closer together with the international institutes,” McVeigh said. “Several of our faculty members and students are affiliated with international institutes such as Kroc and Kellogg, and we are currently separated on opposite ends of the campus.” McGreevy said the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, which was funded by a gift from the Nanovic family in 1992 and is currently housed in Brownson Hall, will move to Nanovic Hall when it opens. “It will be neat to have the Nanovic Institute and Nanovic Hall right together,” McGreevy said. Professor A. James McAdams, director of the Nanovic Institute, said he is very grateful that the institute will have a new location. “We truly appreciate this extraordinary gift from the Nanovic family,” McAdams said. “Nanovic Hall will bring the Nanovic Institute to the center of campus, making it more accessible for all of our students. … Finally, we will have a permanent space to call our own.”last_img read more

Synthetic ID fraud: It’s very real

first_img continue reading » Among the most fastest growing types of identity fraud is synthetic fraud, which has exploded with the proliferation of data breaches such as Equifax.“You need to be aware that this fraud is occurring and what the red flags are that can prevent it from happening to us,” says Sue Landauer, who provided an overview of synthetic fraud during a session Wednesday at the 2018 CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Certification Conference with NASCUS in Louisville, Ky.With synthetic fraud, the criminal creates a fictional identity and fabricates an identity by applying for credit. In a typical scenario, the perpetrator will obtain the social security number of another person and fabricate a name, says Landauer, a certified public accountant with Forensic Accounting Service.

Duterte to PhilHealth: ‘Premiums for OFWs should be voluntary’

first_img“Sa ngayon po, habang meron tayong krisis, ang naging desisyon ng Presidente, wag na muna tayong magpataw ng karagdagang pahirap sa ating mga OFWs, lalong lalo na sa panahon na napakadami sa kanila ang nare-repatriate at nawalan na rin ng trabaho,” Roque added.With Duterte’s order, the Department of Health has suspended the item 10.2.c of the Implementing Rules and Regulation of the Universal Healthcare law that mandates the higher premium payment for OFWs.“Ang nililinaw ko lang ay, unang una, ang pagtaas po ay hindi three percent. It’s only .5 percent,” the Palace spokesman said. “At pangalawa, nakasaad po sa batas na ating sinulong na kapag hindi nakapagbayad ng premiums, hindi po ‘yan dahilan para mawalan ng benepisyo.” MANILA – Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) will no longer be required to pay premiums to the Philippine Health Insurance Corp.
