Regardless of whether your data resides on-premises, in the cloud, or a
combination of both, you are vulnerable to security threats, data breaches,
data loss, and more. Security is often cited as a concern for organizations
who are migrating to the public cloud, but the belief that the public cloud
is not secure is a myth. In fact, the leading public cloud service providers
have built rigorous security capabilities to ensure that your applications,
assets, and services are protected. Security in the public cloud is now
becoming a driver for many organizations, but in a rapidly evolving
multicloud environment, you must keep up with changes that might
impact your security posture.
This eBook outlines the three core recommendations for cloud security
across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google
Both the speed of innovation and the uniqueness of cloud technology is
forcing security teams everywhere to rethink classic security concepts
and processes. In order to keep their cloud environment secure,
businesses are implementing new security strategies that address the
distributed nature of cloud infrastructure.
Security in the cloud involves policies, procedures, controls, and
technologies working together to protect your cloud resources, which
includes stored data, deployed applications, and more. But how do you
know which cloud service provider offers the best security services? And
what do you do if you’re working on improving security for a hybrid or
This ebook provides a security comparison across the three main public
cloud providers: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and
Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With insight from leading cloud experts,
we also analyze the differences between security in the cloud and

City leaders around the world can consider the examples cited in this paper as they plan for the future. From predicting the weather and improving public transportation routes – to mitigating complex public health crises, leaders have a plethora of technology resources available to them. There’s no shortage of data to help inform their strategies and ultimately make cities more resilient. What leaders do with this data, and how effectively they involve their constituents in the solution, will determine their success
City leaders around the world are working to improve the quality of life and increase the number of useful services for their citizens, businesses, and visitors. Smart city initiatives are gaining attention in several countries, as administrators, industry, and citizens are working together to enhance their communities, cities, regions, and nations. After more than ten years of smart city hype, innovative projects have emerged, but few have provided a disruptive impact on the city system itself. Because every city is different, few of the existing models apply universally. An effective response requires leaders to consider a series of prerequisites:
• Consider the local culture and the people • Prioritize basic needs and requests • Work at overcoming silos and encourage collaboration across departments • Consider each “smart” initiative as an integral part of an overall city system
A smart city reflects a number of aspirations: efficiency, resiliency, connectedness, innovatio
Technology empowers governments to improve how and when they reach citizens. It improves the quality and accessibility of public services, ultimately creating a more productive environment where citizens can thrive. Leveraging the cloud is one way governments can accelerate this shift, with benefits occurring first inside the institution.
Local and regional governments around the world are using the cloud to transform services, improve their operations, and reach new horizons for citizen services. The Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud enables data collection, analysis, and decision making for smarter cities. This whitepaper provides strategic considerations for local and regional governments to consider as they identify which IT systems and applications to move to the cloud. Real examples that show how cities can stop wasting money, move faster, and innovate.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers scalable, cost-efficient cloud services that public sector customers can use to meet mandates, reduce costs, drive efficiencies, and accelerate innovation.
The procurement of an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) cloud is unlike traditional technology purchasing. Traditional public sector procurement and contracting approaches that are designed to purchase products, such as hardware and related software, can be inconsistent with cloud services (like IaaS). A failure to modernize contracting and procurement approaches can reduce the pool of competitors and inhibit customer ability to adopt and leverage cloud technology
Innovation requires many ingredients: a great idea, creativity, persistence, the right data, and technology. Governments around the world are taking advantage of the cloud to reduce cost and transform the way they deliver on their mission. The expectations of an increasingly digital citizenry are high, yet all levels of government face budgetary and human resource constraints. Cloud computing (on-demand delivery of IT resources via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing) can help government organizations increase innovation, agility, and resiliency, all while reducing costs. This whitepaper provides guidelines that governments can use to break down innovation barriers and achieve a digital transformation that helps them engage and serve citizens.
AWS worked with FedRAMP to develop a set of standards under which highly sensitive government data could securely migrate into cloud environments. If ever you doubted that cloud computing was the new frontier for federal data and software management, look around
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides rapid access to flexible and low cost IT resources. With cloud computing, public sector organizations no longer need to make large upfront investments in hardware, or spend time and money on managing infrastructure. The goal of this whitepaper is to help you gain insight into some of the financial considerations of operating a cloud IT environment and learn how to maximize the overall value of your decision to adopt AWS.
This document provides information to assist customers who want to use AWS to store or process content containing personal data, in the context of common privacy and data protection considerations. It will help customers understand:

Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie
streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run
its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management.
Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different

Advanced Technology is having a growing impact on our everyday lives. Adoption of advanced technologies and virtual assistants such as Amazon Echo and Google Home are becoming more mainstream in homes. Meanwhile organizations worldwide are increasingly looking at how to implement similar technologies to improve productivity, speed workflows, and increase collaboration among employees, business partners, and even customers.
To date, little is known about perceptions of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual assistants in the workplace and how they will impact how we work in the future.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Big data alone does not guarantee better business decisions. Often that data needs to be moved and transformed so Insight Platforms can discern useful business intelligence. To deliver those results faster than traditional Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) technologies, use Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift. This cloud- native ETL/ELT offering, built specifically for Amazon Redshift, simplifies the process of loading and transforming data and can help reduce your development time.
This white paper will focus on approaches that can help you maximize your investment in Amazon Redshift. Learn how the scalable, cloud- native architecture and fast, secure integrations can benefit your organization, and discover ways this cost- effective solution is designed with cloud computing in mind. In addition, we will explore how Matillion ETL and Amazon Redshift make it possible for you to automate data transformation directly in the data warehouse to deliver analytics and business intelligence (BI
Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making.
Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources.
AbeBooks, with Amazon Redshift, has been able to upgrade to a comprehensive data warehouse with the enlistment of Matillion ETL for Amazon Redshift. In this case study, we share AbeBooks’ data warehouse success story.

For many companies the appeal of the public cloud is very real. For tech startups, the cloud may be their
only option, since many don’t have the capital or expertise to build and operate the IT systems their
businesses need. Existing companies with established data centers are also looking at public clouds, to
increase IT agility while limiting risk. The idea of building-out their production capacity while possibly
reducing the costs attached to that infrastructure can be attractive. For most companies the cloud isn’t
an “either-or” decision, but an operating model to be evaluated along with on-site infrastructure. And
like most infrastructure decisions the question of cost is certainly a consideration.
In this report we’ll explore that question, comparing the cost of an on-site hyperconverged solution with
a comparable set up in the cloud. The on-site infrastructure is a Dell EMC VxRailTM hyperconverged
appliance cluster and the cloud solution is Amazon Web Services (AWS).
As more organizations consider a move to the cloud, security remains a top concern.
