As the information age matures, data has become the most powerful resource enterprises have at their disposal. Businesses have embraced digital transformation, often staking their reputations on insights extracted from collected data. While decision-makers hone in on hot topics like AI and the potential of data to drive businesses into the future, many underestimate the pitfalls of poor data governance. If business decision-makers can’t trust the data within their organization, how can stakeholders and customers know they are in good hands? Information that is not correctly distributed, or abandoned within an IT silo, can prove harmful to the integrity of business decisions. In search of instant analytical insights, businesses often prioritize data access and analysis over governance and quality. However, without ensuring the data is trustworthy, complete and consistent, leaders cannot be confident their decisions are rooted in facts and reality

Today, nearly every datacenter has become heavily virtualized. In fact, according to Gartner as many as 75% of X86 server workloads are already virtualized in the enterprise datacenter. Yet even with the growth rate of virtual machines outpacing the rate of physical servers, industry wide, most virtual environments continue to be protected by backup systems designed for physical servers, not the virtual infrastructure they are used on. Even still, data protection products that are virtualization-focused may deliver additional support for virtual processes, but there are pitfalls in selecting the right approach. This paper will discuss five common costs that can remain hidden until after a virtualization backup system has been fully deployed.

Getting the most out of A/B and other controlled tests. In the fast-moving digital world, even experts have a hard time assessing new ideas.

The test showed that the change increased revenue by an astonishing 12%. That experience illustrates why it’s critical to adopt an “experiment with everything” approach, say Ron Kohavi, the head of the Analysis & Experimentation team at Microsoft, and Stefan Thomke, an HBS professor.

There has been growing buzz about DevOps. DevOps is a methodology that unites the often separate functions of software development (Dev) and production and operations (Ops) into a single, integrated, and continuous process. DevOps is about breaking down the barriers between Dev and Ops. It leverages people, processes, and technology to stimulate collaboration and innovation across the entire software development and release process. Dev and Ops should always be part of an integrated process, but that’s not always as easy as it sounds. You may be stuck in what we call “Dysfunction Junction.” Read this eBooklet to learn about the pitfalls of DevOps, how you can avoid them, and how to get started on your DevOps journey.
