How to Get Started With Master Data Management

CEB IT

Travelling from Christchurch to London, you’d never expect a stopover of 413,786 hours in Bangkok. Or a return flight that left prior to your departure date. A rather surprised traveler was offered both by an online travel portal in 2016. The story quickly went viral, demonstrating the impact that poor data quality can have. Poor data quality is the unintended consequence of data silos and a lack of data and analytics governance.

3 cloud security 'hacks' to consider today

David Linthicum

Are you the cloud security person, or cloudsec/cloudops, as it’s often called? The person who controls the cloud deployment, including all security such as IAM (identity and access management), encryption services, and application and user authentication? I have some observations about cloud security to share. First, enterprises typically don’t have a good-fitting security solution.

The VPN is dying, long live zero trust

Network World

The venerable VPN, which has for decades provided remote workers with a secure tunnel into the enterprise network, is facing extinction as enterprises migrate to a more agile, granular security framework called zero trust, which is better adapted to today’s world of digital business. VPNs are part of a security strategy based on the notion of a network perimeter; trusted employees are on the inside and untrusted employees are on the outside.

Simplifying data management in the cloud

David Linthicum

Let’s face it. We’re painting ourselves into a corner given the number of special-purpose, cloud-native databases we’re placing into production. This without regard to how we should be using those databases in ways that allow for easy access and understanding of data. Today, they are typically coupled to applications, and have a tactical and not a strategic purpose. This is not the purpose of data, and not the promise of the cloud.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Data Analytics in the Cloud for Developers and Founders

Speaker: Javier Ramírez, Senior AWS Developer Advocate, AWS

You have lots of data, and you are probably thinking of using the cloud to analyze it. But how will you move data into the cloud? In which format? How will you validate and prepare the data?

Will the data lake scale when you have twice as much data? Is your data secure? In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.
