In today’s rapidly changing security landscape, you simply can’t afford to let your guard down. Studies show that a staggering 4.5 billion records were compromised in the first half of 2018.The total cost of a single data breach is now $3.86 million. Meanwhile, the stealth of recent attacks has increased the time it takes to contain a breach—69 days, on average. To investigate how enterprises are responding to these proliferating threats, Lenovo commissioned a global survey of IT decision makers. The following research looks inside the volatile security landscape and shows us why keeping PCs secure today is harder than ever before.

In today's hyperconnected and digitized world, cybersecurity has become an important strategic imperative owing to the sophistication of cybercrime. Digital businesses require complex and distributed interactions among people, applications and data - on premise, off-premise, on mobile devices and in the cloud. The result is an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect and defend. As the perimeter continues to diminish, visibility into the environment gets tougher. Operational Technology (OT) and the Internet of Things (IoT) massively expand the scope of security strategy and operations. When a massively distributed fleet of autonomous devices that can make decisions is combined, directly affecting the physical state of people and things, there is a considerable risk to manage. This issue is not limited to the chief information security officer (CISO) but needs the involvement and sponsorship of the leadership and the board.

This white paper considers the pressures that enterprises face as the volume, variety, and velocity of relevant data mount and the time to insight seems unacceptably long. Most IT environments seeking to leverage statistical data in a useful way for analysis that can power decision making must glean that data from many sources, put it together in a relational database that requires special configuration and tuning, and only then make it available for data scientists to build models that are useful for business analysts. The complexity of all this is further compounded by the need to collect and analyze data that may reside in a classic datacenter on the premises as well as in private and public cloud systems. This need demands that the configuration support a hybrid cloud environment. After describing these issues, we consider the usefulness of a purpose-built database system that can accelerate access to and management of relevant data and is designed to deliver high performance for t

In the last few years we have seen a rapid evolution of data. The need to embrace the growing volume, velocity and variety of data from new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) has been accelerated. The ability to explore, store, and manage your data and therefore drive new levels of analytics and decision-making can make the difference between being an industry leader and being left behind by the competition. The solution you choose must be able to: • Harness exponential data growth as well as semistructured and unstructured data • Aggregate disparate data across your organization, whether on-premises or in the cloud • Support the analytics needs of your data scientists, line of business owners and developers • Minimize difficulties in developing and deploying even the most advanced analytics workloads • Provide the flexibility and elasticity of a cloud option but be housed in your data center for optimal security and compliance

Pursuing agility to truly impact business transformation requires embracing data center modernization as a core competency. Crucial to this is having the most up-to-date IT infrastructure to support the scale and complexity of a changing technology landscape. Companies must embrace this imperative by adopting software-defined data center principles, embracing modernization, and automating their IT management processes. Those that do will propel business innovation and deliver superior customer experiences with fast, secure, and reliable business technology. In December 2018, Dell Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the business value of modern infrastructure in company data centers. Forrester conducted an online survey with 508 IT infrastructure technology decision makers in seven countries to explore this topic.

The digital era has ushered in a proliferation of data that powers modern businesses. When leveraged properly, organizations are seeing the potential of data to drive better outcomes across all aspects of their business. Using data to support different workflows, analytics, and activities transforms it into data capital — a digital asset that will drive value for the business. The extent to which an enterprise aligns its organization around this data capital mindset — in both the way they use data and the way they invest in data technology — can have lasting impacts on the success of the business. In February 2019, Dell EMC and Intel commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate whether the ability to harness and apply data and analytics at every opportunity is fast becoming a prerequisite for success. To test this, Forrester conducted a global survey of 516 IT decision makers. The survey found that companies with more mature data capital practices — leveraging more data types, managin

Why HyperIntelligence? Today, despite massive investments in data, IT infrastructure, and analytics software, the adoption of analytics continues to lag behind. In fact, according to Gartner, most organizations fail to hit the 30% mark. That means that more than 70% of people at most organizations are going without access to the critical information they need to perform to the best of their abilities. What’s stopping organizations from breaking through the 30% barrier and driving the pervasive adoption of intelligence? Simple. The majority of existing tools only cater to users who are naturally analytically inclined—the analysts, data scientists, and architects of the world. The other 70%—the people making the operational decisions daily within a business—simply lack the time, skill, or desire to seek out data and intelligence on their own. HyperIntelligence helps organizations operationalize their existing investments and arm everyone across the organization with intelligence. Whether
