Cities are changing at a pace never before possible, bringing
smart features online daily. But smart features don’t equal
smart cities. That’s why aspiring smart cities are shifting from
siloes of smart features to a more holistic approach that
connects and makes sense of all people and things. This
shift demands technology solutions that are edge-centric,
cloud-enabled and data-driven, able to deliver citizen-centric
outcomes now and into the future.
"IT needs to reach beyond the traditional data center and the public cloud to form and manage a hybrid connected system stretching from the edge to the cloud, wherever the cloud may be. We believe this is leading to a new period of disruption and development that will require organizations to rethink and modernize their infrastructure more comprehensively than they have in the past.
Hybrid cloud and hybrid cloud management will be the key pillars of this next wave of digital transformation – which is on its way much sooner than many have so far predicted. They have an important role to play as part of a deliberate and proactive cloud strategy, and are essential if the full benefits of moving over to a cloud model are to be fully realized."

For most companies, the Human Resources department has a long history of guarding sensitive employee data. Rows of beige file cabinets line a back closet where only those with a key and knowledge of the filing system have access to the personal information of countless employees. The greatest risk to this data has always been fire or water damage, but that’s quickly changing with the emergence of online data storage.
The MicroStrategy 2018 Global State of Enterprise Analytics Report, which surveyed 500 decision-makers from around the globe, reveals that leading organizations create a competitive edge through their use of data, with 63% experiencing improved efficiency and productivity, 57% realizing faster, more effective decision making, and 51% achieving better financial performance. Other top benefits include improved customer experiences, improved customer acquisition and retention, and the identification and creation of new revenue streams—all keys to digital transformation.

Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.
For many organizations, managing and delivering the knowledge contained within documents is difficult or impossible due to technological disparity. Conventional approaches to knowledge
management work within the constraints of disparate platforms, applications, and output devices, and fail to address technological disparity.
