It is playing a pivotal role in the Retail business as the nature of business is complex with huge volume of transaction data to handle.

Life in 2025: Will Humans be Humans?

Internet and its ubiquitous stature has no doubt brought a lot of things closer to us, which were unimaginable about two decades ago. Internet for health, for education, for banking, for many more things has been a boon. We can't close eyes on those massive pros and can't take the credit away. But the positive side cannot be appreciate in isolation and isn't the only aspect. What's the negative side of it? 

The Value of Cyber Threat Intelligence

I just came back from the Next Generation Security Summit in San Antonio, Texas and I have to say that there were two surprising themes - cloud and cyber threat intelligence. I could speak about the vendors and their unique or specific offerings, but that would dilute the story a bit. Instead I want to talk about a conversation I had regarding cyber threat intelligence.  

Three Surprising Digital Business Trends for 2015

PwC has published an interesting finding from one of their researches accomplished recently. The Digital IQ Survey found that enterprise business and IT leaders are looking for the traditional technology areas like cybersecurity (69%), private cloud (61%), and data mining and analysis (54%) as their top areas to invest. But there is more beyond just this list. Enterprise wearables and business sensors are slowly creeping in.  

Sliding IT Security Priorities Put Enterprises at Risk

Why is security investment such a drag when it comes to budgeting and spending ? Why do enterprises and with that I imply the CXOs who collectively represent the Management believe that they don't really need to invest in protecting their information assets which are family jewels in most cases ? What creates such a lackadaisical attitude towards creating process, policy, and implementing tools that provide a secure framework to do business? 

Complexity - The Killer of Agility?

I've said a few times that the data centre of today isn't the data centre of yesterday nor is it the data centre of tomorrow. In fact, in "The Data Centre of Tomorrow" I wrote that the: "data center will be a combination of internal and external systems that combine to create an agile, efficient and effective technology delivery platform." 

Smarter Cities Okay But What About Smarter Citizens?

Why is it important to think of smarter citizens parallel to the smarter cities? Besides the obvious fact that we need to make cities a better home for a majority of the population, this kind of behaviour and thinking is driving the development of ICT as a key urban infrastructure, just as important as roads, buildings and other physical infrastructure.  

Can a Company Remotely Wipe an Ex-Employee's Device?

One of my favourite sayings about cyber risk is "an ounce of prevention is cheaper than the very first day of litigation." A recent case provides a nice example of exactly what I mean. In this case, an effective BYOD policy could have saved this company tens of thousands of dollars, at least. 

Will Internet of Things Sweep the Enterprise?

It's correct that IoT is not a god sent stuff. Sensors, networking gear, cloud, RFID - technology pieces that IoT rests on - have been known to us for quite a while. What is that IoT has or will change that is catching the attention of not just consumers but also governments now. But, will it attract the Enterprise market? 

Everything As A Service

The 'Everything-As-A-Service' approach is one that makes a great deal of sense. If an organization can decide they need a new platform or a new application they don't have to undergo a long, drawn-out technology selection project and subsequent implementation project to get the right technology within their data center.
