Exclusive: EMC Syncplicity is About to Cozy Up to SharePoint #SPC14

Some cloud-based file sync and share vendors bill themselves as replacements for SharePoint. Syncplicity isn’t one of them.

The rockin’ hot EMC subsidiary has all of the good things that great start-ups are known for, plus a keen understanding of how enterprises operate and their requirements.

Competition in the cloud computing market is intense everywhere — and Asia Pacific is one of the most hotly contested markets for cloud vendors. OpenText has just entered that market with the announcement that it's opening its first data center in Australia. 

What's Riskier: Ignoring or Implementing Big Data?

Information security practitioners, risk professionals and executives might be blinded by the potential risks of implementing big data and thereby miss out on the value it can provide an organization. ISACA recently released a paper on Big Data which weighs the two sides and makes a clear decision which is the bigger risk.

EMC's RSA Chief Calls Cybersecurity Experts to Action

EMC's RSA Chief Calls Cybersecurity Experts to ActionWhen RSA chief Art Coviello opened RSA’s information security conference earlier this week, there was an elephant room.

The elephant? Allegation(s) that his company had provided an NSA designed “back door” in its BSafe software which made it easy for the agency to decrypt information that RSA’s encryption software was supposed to keep private.

Document Mgt Roll-Up: Facebook Quashes Its Email Service

docmgmtrollup.jpgWe saw a lot of action in the document management world recently, with Facebook closing the door on its much ignored email service, a rebranded Web Apps from Microsoft and a new Service Pack released by AvePoint aimed at improving data governance. Accusoft kept busy with the upgrade of its Prizm document viewer, while WatchDox offered a free document editor to its users.

Clean Up SharePoint Legacy Content

Cleaning Up SharePoint Legacy ContentThe idea of cleaning up legacy SharePoint content is daunting. Organizations often place cleanup under the “Nice to Do” column as opposed to the “Must Do” column.

Why not leverage in-house resources? Legacy SharePoint cleanup is a perfect task for the Records Management (RM) department. Reviewing data and applying retention to it are two of our key responsibilities. 

Microsoft's Anxiety Shows as April XP Deadline Nears

It’s rare that you read a blog post that combines hard sell and desperation in equal measure.

But Microsoft has managed to do just that in a blog post that urges users to give up on Windows XP and upgrade. Upgrade to what, you might ask? Windows 8.1, of course.  And while you’re at it, buy a new computer.

 

Top Down vs. Bottoms Up Information Management

Top Down vs. Bottoms Up Information ManagementWe've already established what makes a good information management (IM) business case from a high level, i.e., addressing meaningful business value rather than “save everyone time searching for documents.” But the devil’s in the details, so I want to dig down a bit more to give you all more specific guidance on building an effective IM business case.

IBM, AT&T Extend Partnerships For Enterprise, IoT Security [Infographic]

In the wake of last week’s announcement that IBM and AT&T are getting together to support the development of the Internet of Things (IoT), many have expressed concerns about IoT and security. It seems, though, that both companies anticipated this and have announced plans to develop simplified, single-source network security products.

Dropbox Gets Big Bucks, Box Gets Talent, Syncplicity Gets Analytical

These are golden days for enterprise (and wanna be enterprise) IT vendors, especially for those that offer consumer-like experiences in the cloud.

You don’t have to look any further than the (now confirmed) $350 million Dropbox raised last month to prove it. That puts the file sync and share vendor’s valuation at over $10 billion. It’s a pretty hefty sum for any company, let alone one which may be giving many of its products/services away for free.

That being said, Dropbox is loved by the masses; last November it reported that it had 200 million registered users. It’s safe to assume that most of them registered as individuals versus as members of corporations.
 

IBM, Microsoft, SAP, SAS Lead Gartner's BI Analytics Magic Quadrant

Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms is one of the most dynamic quadrants Gartner produces. It reflects a market that is still growing and intensely competitive. However, all is not well in paradise.

Enterprises are looking to expand the use or even standardize their data discovery platforms for larger business intelligence (BI) deployments. But Gartner reports that many vendors lack the enterprise features around governance, administration and scalability that are required to do this.

HP Autonomy Focusing on Healthcare Analytics #HIMSS2014

HP HPA

There are two interesting points to note around HP Autonomy’s (HPA) Healthcare Analytics release. The first is that HPA has developed its IDOL technology to target a specific vertical. The second is that it's a self-service platform designed with users in mind rather than IT.

Healthcare Analytics will not be released until next month, but HPA is already talking it up at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference this week in Orlando, Fla.

OpenText Jumps on Open Data Bandwagon #ODD2014

open data

OpenText is not in the habit of giving away money. Neither is the Canadian government. However, in recent weeks, each has given $3 million to the newly formed Open Data Institute in Canada.

But open data is not a Canadian initiative, it is a global movement that is creeping into businesses everywhere — and the focus of an International Open Data Day tomorrow.

No Comprendo Hadoop? No Problema [Video]

You can call data scientists plenty of things, including the often overused term from 2012 … sexy. But waiting in line for their services is not. Business users need to make decisions on the spot, or they risk losing their competitive advantage.

The 'Dark Data' Dilemma: Finding the Elephants in the Room

darkdata.jpgEveryone is talking about big data. And, if you have ever watched Discovery Channel you probably know a little about dark matter and dark energy. But dark data? Is this just some new marketing buzzword, or is it a real problem?
