Today’s CIOs no longer just oversee technology. They are now
key strategists who guide their organizations and give them
the tools they need to stay competitive. A study by Forbes
Research stated that five years ago, a CIO’s most critical
skill was deploying technology. Now, the #1 way that CIOs
provide value is by contributing to the corporate strategy, so
they can advance business objectives and drive revenue.1
In particular, CEOs rely on the CIO for guidance around
digital transformation. Organizations must transform how
they operate and take advantage of new technologies to
better engage customers and employees.
Digital transformation falls squarely on the shoulders of IT
leaders. CIOs are under pressure to drive transformation –
overcoming barriers such as cultures that are resistant to
change, employees who want to upload files anywhere,
and increased concerns about data security.
CEOs also expect CIOs to achieve results now. The

The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. They’re in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. That’s the modern reality of business life—it’s happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, it’s happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are it’s no longer 9 ‘til 5.

Backup and recovery needs a radical rethink. When today’s incumbent solutions were designed over a decade ago, IT environments were exploding, heterogeneity was increasing, and backup was the protection of last resort. The goal was to provide a low cost insurance policy for data, and to support this increasingly complex multi-tier, heterogeneous environment. The answer was to patch together backup and recovery solutions under a common vendor management framework and to minimize costs by moving data across the infrastructure or media.

Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.
To win the colocation race you need to be faster, reliable, innovative and efficient –all while making smarter design choices that will ensure positive returns. Customers are demanding 100% uptime and always-on connectivity –be it small enterprises to large Internet Giants–and colocation providers need to meet these expectations. The growing adoption of prefabricated data centers allows just that. With the undisputed benefits of prefab modules and building components(like speed or quality),colocation providers can manage their business today, and deploy faster in the future.
Chris Crosby, CEO for Compass Datacenters, is well-known for his expertise in the data center industry. From its founding in 2012, Compass’ data center solutions have used prefabricated components like exterior walls and power centers to deliver brandable, dedicated facilities for colocation providers. Prefabrication is the central element of the company’s “Kit of Parts” methodology that delivers customizable data center solutions from the core to the edge. By attending this webinar, colocation providers will:
• understand the flexibility and value delivered via the use of prefabricated construction
• Hear the common misperceptions regarding prefabricated modules and data center components
• learn how prefabricated solutions can provide more revenue generation capability than competing alternatives
• know what key things to consider when evaluating prefabricated data center design
Organizations need resilience in the face of an increasingly broad and unpredictable risk landscape. This is especially true when it comes to energy and sustainability.
Investors and customers alike recognize the effects of climate change and other factors that increase volatility. And the pressure these and other groups are applying to drive change can no longer be ignored.

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.

It also examines how design challenges are overcome, how updates are secured and how OTA technology could be deployed across a fleet of vehicles.
As the world’s leading location platform in 2018 (Source: Ovum and Counterpoint Research annual indexes) HERE is supporting auto manufacturers to develop the navigation services for the future and guide drivers safely and efficiently to their destinations.
In this report, VSI applies HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examines performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.
VSI tested the lane keeping system with and without map data on a local road in 3 scenarios:
1. Lane lines expanding into a turn or exit lane
2. An intersection without lane lines
3. A widening in the lane
The results show that in all scenarios, the computer-vision-only lane keeping systems got confused and made errors in a vehicle’s trajectory when lane markings were out of the ordinary or invisible. Faced with the same road conditions, the map-based lane keeping system stayed within the desired trajectory outperforming the compute- vision-only systems.
This report proves that using a lane model from an HD map can solve common issues involved in computer-vision-only lane keeping.
