Biting the hand that feeds IT

Making the right multisite decision

Long gone are the days when organisations could get by with a single online presence. The availability of omnichannel opportunities, and so much demand has paved the way for companies to build their digital strategy on a multitude of websites. This explosion in sites has overwhelmed many large organisations, leaving them with a hodgepodge of many different platforms, incompatible technologies and support teams. The result?

Slower time to market, increased cost and a disjointed online experience for the public.




Delivering managed digital experiences with Acquia cloud site factory

It’s no secret that delivering exceptional digital experiences at scale can be challenging and chaotic. As brands grow, products evolve, and new services and technologies become available, a company’s digital presence must scale along with them.

Teams across the organisation must agree on branding, messaging, workflow, and vision. Without that agreement comes the inevitable chaos of managing many sites. How do you scale? Who takes ownership of spinning up sites? And, most importantly, how do you take control of your digital properties and establish a governance model that allows your organisation to thrive moving forward?




Building your digital platform with Acquia cloud site factory

Over the last several years, we’ve seen a digital transformation take place in which organisations have gone from building project-to-project websites to building a digital factory platform to support delivery and management of digital experience content and applications across their entire organisation.







Keep your network under control

Over the years, the role of the firewall has steadily evolved from protecting networks from external hacks and attacks to focus more attention inward – to identify and eliminate potential risks and enable compliance. Part of this evolution is a response to the shift in the threat landscape towards malware and intrusions designed to exploit vulnerabilities in applications rather than the network perimeter itself.

In addition, the growing obligation to provide a reasonable level of compliance, protect against breaches and data loss, and optimise network performance has also contributed to this inward shift.




Firewall best practices to block ransomware

Recent ransomware attacks like Wanna and Petya have spread largely unchecked through corporate networks in recent months, extorting money to restore your data and regain control of your computers. Modern firewalls are purpose-built to defend against these kinds of attacks, but they need to be given an opportunity to do their job. In this whitepaper we’ll discuss how these attacks work, how they can be stopped, and best practices for configuring your firewall and network to give you the best protection possible.




Defeating ransomware and the targeted threat

In the continuing arms race between cyber criminals and the organisations whose data and money they want to steal, we continue to see new, ever more sophisticated, tools being deployed on both sides.

There’s been a lot in the news about ransomware and businesses large and small are under threat from increasingly aggressive ransomware attacks. Loss of access to critical files, followed by a demand for payment can cause massive disruption to an organisation’s productivity.

Also, attacks called advanced persistent threats (APT) which were originally used only against very large organisations have become more common and are now being used against smaller companies.




The magic number 5

It’s 2017; the iPhone is ten years old, as is Amazon Web Services. The past decade has been a blur of constant and rapid technology evolution fueled by a dizzying array of applications designed to make our lives more convenient.

Whether it’s for buying groceries or selling software, we expect these applications to perform a certain way all the time, and when they don’t, we get frustrated.

Welcome to the era of cloud applications.

In this eBook, we’ll take a look at how we got here, why data plays such an important role in making cloud applications work correctly, and why DataStax is the ideal solution for powerful applications that are contextual, always on, real time, distributed, and scalable.




The architect's guide to CX

But it’s what you DO with that data that counts.

Regular customer experience solutions just segment and stereotype their customers and perform in a sort of action-reaction, request-response manner, rather than being instantly responsive.

Being responsive means adjusting to each additional interaction and observed behavior, and making every action, every click, every scroll, every email, every second spent on your app part of a larger conversation.




Becoming a customer-centric organisation

In today’s fast-paced business climate, companies are seeing dramatic shifts in their market. Customer expectations are changing faster than ever due to digital disruption in areas like commerce, banking, transportation, healthcare, utilities, and media consumption. Technology is being used to disrupt traditionally “safe” industry norms. Data is being generated at levels never seen before, but companies are having a tough time understanding how to find the gold within the gravel.

Given these rapid changes, many organisations find themselves flat-footed and off-balance in adapting to this new customer-centric economy.




Evaluating data management platforms for cloud applications

For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.

A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices, and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application. In short, businesses need cloud applications to deliver real-time value at epic scale.




Why your RDBMS fails at scale

It’s been nearly 40 years since the birth of the relational database, and while the RDBMS is still prevalent and useful, massive changes in the way we produce, store, and use data are quickly making the relational database obsolete.

The government really pushed the boundaries of what a database could handle all those years ago. But in this era, it’s the Internet giants that have changed the game when it comes to quickly storing and retrieving massive amounts of data.




A look at how cloud applications benefit from graph technology

The applications that are changing business today are radically different than ones of prior generations. Today’s applications consist of many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices, and/or machines that are geographically distributed, intensely transactional, always available, as well as instantaneously and intelligently responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.
