OnPage Corporation is the Secure Messaging/Critical Alerts Leader: Learn More… IoT is the problem that big data solutions were born to solve. We just did not know that a few years ago. Now we do. Article Courtesy of: Cloud Technology Partners 0 Companies have been embarking on big data initiatives for many years. Often, these were IT-driven solutions looking for problems to solve. IT professionals understood that if they could bring many disparate data sources into one place and make that data actionable, the data would become a gold mine of valuable information. And that could lead to new revenue sources, huge cost reductions, process optimizations, and many other terrific opportunities. The challenges have always been, how to fund these big data initiatives, and how to make business executives aware of big data’s capabilities, so they can take advantage of the opportunities. I have seen companies spend large sums of money […] Read more »

Article Courtesy of:  The Wall Street Daily IoT (Internet of Things) + Big Data = Top Healthcare Five Billion! That’s how many devices are hooked up to the Internet of Things (IoT) today. The industry has steadily grown over the past several years… as evidenced by the fact that three billion of those devices are consumer products. From smart utility meters and connected cars on the high end, to fitness trackers on the low end, IoT consumer devices are quickly becoming ubiquitous. But it doesn’t even scratch the surface of the growth that’s projected in the coming years. In December, my colleague Louis Basenese quoted some eye-popping forecasts… Tech research firm Gartner pegs the number of devices connected to the internet at 21 billion by 2020. BI Intelligence kicks its projection higher, with […] Read more »

Data Security Analytics

Five factors for evaluating big data security analytics platforms Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Expert Dan Sullivan outlines criteria for evaluating big data security analytics platforms for collecting, analyzing and managing large volumes of data generated for information security purposes. Increasing risks of cybercrime and other malicious activity on the Internet is prompting enterprises to deploy more security controls and collect more data than ever before. As a result, advances in big data analytics are now being applied to security monitoring for broader and more in-depth analysis to protect valuable company resources. Called big data security analytics, this technology — in part — leverages the scalability of big data and combines it with advanced analytics and security event and incident management systems (SIEM). As we noted in the last article in this series, big data security analytics is appropriate for many, but not all, use cases. Consider the challenges of detecting […] Read more »

Remote Monitoring Management

Article Courtesy of:  TechTarget Managed Service Providers are looking ahead to the new year with new service offerings as well as some that will be enhanced in 2016. Among them, they say, will be remote monitoring and management, backup/disaster recovery and business process management. “For my business, both remote monitoring [and] management and backup/disaster recovery are on my list of hot topics for 2016,” said Kenneth Goldberg, president of Microcomputer Consulting Group, based in New York City. “The advent of increased Internet speeds at affordable prices, coupled with high availability and reduced outages, will spur both of these offerings.” Although MCG already provides remote monitoring and management to the majority of its clients, “their demand for 24-hour uptime in today’s global economy puts the onus on MSPs to have round-the-clock, proactive monitoring in place to ensure we fulfill our service-level agreements,” Goldberg said. In order to achieve that, MCG uses […] Read more »
