The key to delivering profitable projects right from the start is being able to quote them accurately. Bidding on, and deploying scarce resources to a project that could not be delivered profitably is a recipe for failure. Through PSA solutions, top performing consulting firms can more accurately estimate job costs to determine profitability. Using analytics and lessons from past projects, this will enable smarter decisions on which projects should be bid on so that the project portfolio can be fully optimized. Further, this information can be refreshed mid-project so that changes can be made in an agile manner, and projects that are going off the rails can be steered back towards profitability.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor. Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage. Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.

Imagine you’re running a factory but without a supply chain management system or industrial controls. Instead, you expect your customers to find and fix your delivery and quality problems. Sound ludicrous? Well, in many enterprises that’s the current “supply chain management” process for big and fast data. It relies on the lightly monitored dumping of unsanitized data into a data lake or cloud store, forcing data scientists and business users to deal with failures from data availability and accuracy issues.

If your company stores or processes credit card information, you must be able to demonstrate compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). These standards include requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, design, and other critical protective measures. They also include one very prescriptive requirement:  Section 6.6 mandates that organizations secure all Web applications by conducting a code review or installing an application layer firewall. Companies have had a very difficult time passing the other parts of Section 6 and they have experienced a rising number of data breaches. Unless companies take 6.6 seriously, PCI compliance failure rates, and data breaches, will continue to grow.  Read this whitepaper to gain an overview of best practices to pass Section 6.6 and an understanding of the technology available to you.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems. A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

The digital revolution is transforming every industry. Yet it also brings new challenges: threats to the security and Availability of mission-critical data and services. Approximately 80% of IT decision-makers say their organization has an Availability gap, that is, a failure to meet recovery requirements—a common issue across all industries. 75% say they also have a data protection gap, meaning they are unable to protect their data frequently enough to ensure that business units’ expectations against data loss are being met.
