Informatica Blog - Mon, 10/08/2018 - 19:15
The GDPR is not a prescriptive regulation. That is, it does not specify exactly what you must do. Instead it lays out some principles and grants extensive rights to data subjects. As a result, we have seen a broad array of compliance efforts, with many multi-year compliance journeys being mapped out. A significant number of companies have elected to start with a focus on the regulators. That is, to answer the broad question of: how can I demonstrate I am in control of the personal data I store a...

Why Cloud-native is more than software just running on someone else’s computer

Talend Blog - Thu, 10/04/2018 - 17:17
The cloud is not “just someone else’s computer”, even though that meme has been spreading so fast on the internet. The cloud consists of extremely scalable data centers with highly optimized and automated processes. This makes a huge difference if you are talking about the level of application software. So what is “cloud-native” really? “Cloud-native” is more than just a marketing slogan. And a “cloud-native application” is not simply a conventionally developed application which is running on “s...

A New World Order: From Debits and Credits to Policies and Catalogs

Informatica Blog - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 19:15
When medieval Europe moved towards a monetary economy it became necessary for merchants to account for multiple transactions financed by bank loans. In 1494 Luca Pacioli a Franciscan monk conveniently published the first known work on double entry bookkeeping. This simple concept of debits and credits has been the mechanism behind the financial systems that measure value and the success of corporations (and individuals) for over half of a millennium. Unfortunately, it has failed to account for t...

California Leads the US in Online Privacy Rules

Talend Blog - Tue, 10/02/2018 - 19:12
With California often being looked to as the state of innovation, the newly enforced California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) came as no surprise. This new online privacy law gives consumers the right to know what information companies are collecting about them, why they are collecting that data, and who they are sharing it with. Some specific industries such as Banking or Health Sciences had already considered this type of compliance at the core of their digital transformation. But as the CCPA ap...

Making the Bet on Open Source

Your Mainframe Is the Original Cloud

Syncsort Blog - Thu, 09/27/2018 - 13:30
Cloud computing did not become a tech buzzword until about a decade ago. But in effect, lots of organizations were deploying infrastructure that provided the same benefits as the cloud long before that. How you ask? By using mainframes. In many respects, mainframes were doing the things that the cloud does long before anyone was talking about the cloud. To prove the point, let’s take a look at some of the specific ways in which mainframes have been providing the same benefits as cloud comp...
