A Forrester Consulting Thought Leadership Paper Commissioned By Microsoft: In May 2019, Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to understand how business decision makers are thinking about IoT security broadly and to explore the specific business value of investing in IoT security. Forrester conducted an online survey with 262 respondents and five interviews with IoT technology planning and deployment decision makers at manufacturing, retail, and healthcare companies in the US, Germany, Japan, and South Korea to explore this topic. We found that as IoT devices and applications become increasingly prevalent in and important to today’s enterprises, firms must reckon with the fact that their IoT security isn’t sufficient and has the potential to cause real harm.
Deliver new business value by evolving your IT team to support your company’s cloud strategy. This Gartner report details opportunities for IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) roles to adapt as companies plan their cloud migrations. Download this report to learn about solutions to these challenges: Cloud adoption will succeed in the long term, but only if IT organisations make fundamental changes in their organisational mission and team member roles. Cloud initiatives falter without clearly defined leadership or identified expertise to guide the organisation’s efforts. Although existing I&O activities must continue for some time, most enterprises will adopt an internal cloud service brokerage model. I&O teams could eventually be displaced if they do not focus on maintaining their relevance. I&O leaders may find their teams’ relevance diminished, if not replaced, by cloud-friendly IT organisational patterns, such as distributed DevOps. Evolve your infrastructure and operations organization to remain relevant in the cloud era, Craig Lowery, 6 February 2020

The digital transformation sweeping through most businesses includes the latest breakthroughs in machine learning (ML), a branch of artificial intelligence (AI). ML and, in particular, its sub-branch of deep learning (DL) have left the research laboratory and are being applied in real-world applications. The high-tech internet giants, as can be expected, have taken the lead in this field and many businesses are now looking to reap the same benefits. ML can bring automation at scale that manual efforts can neither cope effectively nor even manage at all, creating new business opportunities as well as transforming existing business practices. To build this new generation of applications requires ML development tooling. This report focuses on vendors that offer enterprises a platform for ML development, with solutions that typically offer a lot more in terms of managing the whole development-to-deployment lifecycle.
