Websites provide online businesses with an unprecedented level of contact with customers and end users. However, they also place business information where it can be easily accessed by third parties – often using automated tools known as “bots”. For many organizations, bots represent up to 50% or more of their overall website traffic, from good bots engaged in essential business tasks to bad bots conducting fraudulent activities. Regardless of business impact, bot traffic can reduce website performance for legitimate users and increase IT costs. Organizations need a flexible framework to better manage their interaction with different categories of bots and the impact that bots have on their business and IT infrastructure.

DDoS attacks can impair your website, tarnish your brand, and impact your bottom line. Conventional security products like firewalls and intrusion prevention systems and newer cloud-based scrubbing services can’t protect your DNS infrastructure against today’s increasingly sophisticated attacks. The best way to defend against DDoS attacks is to trust the operation of your DNS infrastructure to a managed service provider that lives and breathes DNS. Best-of-breed managed DNS providers operate global anycast networks that mitigate DDoS threats to keep your online business up and running.

The headwinds facing traditional and online retailers in 2017 are numerous and well documented. Chief among the challenges: a sustained assault on established business models driven by changing consumer behavior and the competitive might of e-commerce giant Amazon. Large big-box players, such as Walmart and Target, are responding to the threat - and embracing the opportunity of e-commerce - by boosting online spending by hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars annually. Yet even the largest and most well-resourced players can’t simply spend their way to success. Competing with Amazon and adjusting to the changing demands of consumers means taking a hard look at the engines driving e-commerce and digital marketing operations, scouring for missed opportunities, and investing in the technologies that will fuel the innovations of tomorrow.

Speed is the hallmark of the digital age. E-commerce has grown by double-digits since 2010,¹ spurred by the expansion of quick delivery. The healthcare industry, buoyed by online diagnostic tools and patient analytics, has been experiencing record-breaking growth.² And on-demand online learning is experiencing its 13th consecutive year of growth.³ These trends are not unique. “Digital disruption” is no longer a futurist’s fantasy, it is happening now. Yet talent acquisition lags feebly behind. It takes an average of 43 days for a US company to fill an open position, up from 33 in 2010. That’s right- filling empty positions takes companies longer than ever before, in spite of technological progress. The pace of business is speeding up, but HR is actually slowing down. Nearly every major industry has leveraged digital transformation to their advantage and reaped massive rewards- why not HR?

What if you could reduce the cost of running Oracle databases and improve database performance at the same time? What would it mean to your enterprise and your IT operations? Oracle databases play a critical role in many enterprises. They’re the engines that drive critical online transaction (OLTP) and online analytical (OLAP) processing applications, the lifeblood of the business. These databases also create a unique challenge for IT leaders charged with improving productivity and driving new revenue opportunities while simultaneously reducing costs.

Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.

First, today’s digitally oriented customers expect banks to provide an ever-higher quality experience defined by speed and the flexibility to conduct business across many channels. They’ve grown accustomed to going online and transferring money between accounts, for example, and using their mobile device to make payments and check their account balance. These kinds of experiences have raised the bar in terms of customer expectations – and banks need to keep up, or risk losing customers. This is particularly true of millennial customers, as they have little regard for loyalty, which banks have traditionally relied on to build their business. Once frustrated by inconvenience, they don’t hesitate to switch banks – and thanks to the internet, this is now a fast, painless process.

The demands on IT today are staggering. Most organizations depend on their data to drive everything from product development and sales to communications, operations, and innovation. As a result, IT departments are charged with finding a way to bring new applications online quickly, accommodate massive data growth and complex data analysis, and make data available 24 hours a day, around the world, on any device. The traditional way to deliver data services is with separate infrastructure silos for various applications, processes, and locations, resulting in continually escalating costs for infrastructure and management. These infrastructure silos make it difficult to respond quickly to business opportunities and threats, cause productivity-hindering delays when you need to scale, and drive up operational costs.

With the growing size and importance of information stored in today’s databases, accessing and using the right information at the right time has become increasingly critical. Real-time access and analysis of operational data is key to making faster and better business decisions, providing enterprises with unique competitive advantages. Running analytics on operational data has been difficult because operational data is stored in row format, which is best for online transaction processing (OLTP) databases, while storing data in column format is much better for analytics processing. Therefore, companies normally have both an operational database with data in row format and a separate data warehouse with data in column format, which leads to reliance on “stale data” for business decisions. With Oracle’s Database In-Memory and Oracle servers based on the SPARC S7 and SPARC M7 processors companies can now store data in memory in both row and data formats, and run analytics on their operatio
