Research Report: Special Report: Edge Computing: An IT Platform for the New Enterprise

by InformationWeekOct 07, 2020

The concept of edge computing is not a new buzzword or trend. It is, in fact, one of the oldest emerging markets. Today, it's clear that the "edge" isn't just about technology but a core strategy that organizations need to adopt.

The edge is a function that enables a business to extract value from the intersection of physical and digital domains.

To successfully deploy edge, businesses need to manage the various constraints at the edge including environmental and dimensional issues; latency, network bandwidth, access and management, security, and more.

Research Report: The State of IT Operations and Cybersecurity Operations 2020

by InformationWeekApr 28, 2020

Conventional wisdom about today's data centers holds that IT operations and security operations centers (SOCs) are separate organizations staffed by separate teams using different technologies. But in practice, IT operations and cybersecurity operations are often tightly intertwined, involving overlapping functions and a wide range of common challenges. The good news from this year's survey is that business leaders are becoming much more cognizant of the cybersecurity threats they face. In response, many are assigning more responsibility to their security teams. However, CIOs will need to carefully shepherd their teams through these changes to ensure that everyone continues working as a unified group.

Download the 2020 State of IT Operations and Cybersecurity Operations report from InformationWeek, in partnership with Dark Reading, to learn more about how today's IT operations teams work with cybersecurity operations, what technologies they are using, and how they communicate and share responsibility--or create risk by failing to do so.
