It focuses on the awarded "data heroes," who have been catalysts and facilitators for successful Big Data usage in their organizations, identified by a vendor-independent judging panel (including IDC). </P><P>"It was clear at this conference that leading organizations are moving on from debating whether and how to use Big Data to looking to achieve best business value from it across the organization," said Philip Carnelley, research director, and leader of IDC's European AI/Cognitive Systems Practice. "The data heroes showed that true value can be derived from wide-ranging use cases. AI is emerging as a key technology for gaining business value from Big Data implementations."</P> IDC Perspective Fri, 26 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Philip Carnelley, Helena Schwenk How Avoidable was the WannaCry Ransomware? http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcAP42562217 IDC Link Fri, 26 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Simon Piff How Is IoT Data Used and Organized at the Edge? http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=US42581117 <P>This IDC Survey Spotlight provides analysis of impact on storage infrastructure on U.S. organizations due to Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. Specifically, this Survey Spotlight highlights the increased use of object-based storage (OBS) at the edge for deep analysis and pattern recognition purposes. </P><P>"Today most IoT data is stored in file-based storage environments with an increase in object-based deployments at the edge in the next 24 months," said Amita Potnis, research manager, File- and Object-Based Storage Solutions at IDC. "This will mean increased storage budgets as data sets continue to grow and a possible uptick of commercial distribution of object-based storage." </P> IDC Survey Spotlight Fri, 26 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Amita Potnis, Natalya Yezhkova Red Hat targets developers by expanding development portfolio with Codenvy acquisition http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcUS42631617 <P>Red Hat's decision to acquire Codenvy, one of its partners whose product leverages open source Eclipse Che, gives the company an additional tool with which to engage developers and to augment its cloud platform portfolio. In the past, Red Hat acquisitions and product launches primarily targeted technologies in the infrastructure and middleware space, supporting customers in the information technology operations space. Codenvy seeks to address a cumbersome problem – configuring developer workspaces, the environment that developers use to edit, debug and link code to test as part of the continuous integration workflow handoff. Typically, the instructions about how to set up these workspaces are located on wiki pages and the creation process is highly manual and inefficient. The overhead can be so significant (depending on size and complexity), that during the first few days of a project developers spend substantial time on environmental configuration rather than coding. This acquisition is part of a shift in priorities the company is making to collect additional capabilities needed to improve developer productivity. Codenvy was already integrated with Red Hat OpenShift so IDC does not foresee challenges in making the products work together.</P> IDC Link Fri, 26 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Larry Carvalho, Melinda-Carol Ballou, Al Gillen Worldwide Archiving Software Market Shares, 2016: A Shifting Landscape Brings New Opportunity http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=US42572217 <P>This IDC study discusses the worldwide archiving software market, which is made up of revenue from both on-premises arching software and public cloud/SaaS-based archiving services. This study highlights the key trends impacting market growth and explores how some of the largest providers are responding to shifts among their customer base. </P><P>"We're reaching a significant tipping point in the archiving software market," said Andrew Smith, senior research analyst, Storage Software. "Revenue from cloud- and SaaS-based solutions is on pace to surpass on-premises revenue within the next several years. This has never happened before in this market. Clearly, customers are looking for cloud-friendly archiving platforms that allow them to choose a range of ediscovery, compliance, and regulatory tools to meet their needs. Many providers have already responded to this shift in consumption preference, but the amount of merger and acquisition activity happening among top market share holders indicates there is still much work to be done to effectively engage and retain customers."</P> Market Share Fri, 26 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Andrew Smith, Eric Sheppard Worldwide Enterprise Capture Software Forecast, 2017-2021 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=US41904917 <P>This IDC study provides a sizing of the worldwide enterprise capture software market in 2016 and a five-year forecast through 2021 by geographic region and type of deployment (public cloud versus on-premise/other software).
