According to a recent report from 451 Research, the ability to migrate workloads easily between on-prem and public cloud is the number one reason that organisations opt for a hybrid IT infrastructure. Unfortunately, a significant divide exists today between traditional enterprise IT environments and the public cloud with different management models, consumption models, application architectures, and storage and data services. These differences can limit your ability to easily move enterprise and cloud-native applications where you need them.

As the majority of data in modern enterprises is produced outside the data centre, the ability to access, collaborate, share, and protect file-based data relies on the ability to store it at the edge. Edge computing devices today are creating massive amounts of files and data that can drive significant cost increases when they are communicated or transferred to the cloud or data centre.

Wrike has released new findings that uncover the cost of work complexities brought about by the Digital Era and accelerated transformations. According to the research report commissioned by Wrike, “Dark Matter of Work: The Hidden Cost of Work Complexities,” up to 55% of the work that takes place within an organisation is not visible to key stakeholders, costing organisations up to $60 million a year in wasted time, delayed or canceled projects, and employee churn. This lack of visibility has created the “Dark Matter of Work,” a term coined by Wrike Founder Andrew Filev to describe the vast amount of work that isn’t captured, tracked, or measured against goals because it takes place in synchronous applications and unstructured ways.
A new report from the Capgemini Research Institute finds that 51% of industrial organizations believe that the number of cyberattacks on smart factories is likely to increase over the next 12 months. Yet nearly half (47%) of manufacturers say cybersecurity in their smart factories is not a C-level concern. According to the Capgemini report, ‘Smart & Secure: Why smart factories need to prioritize cybersecurity’, few manufacturers have mature practices across the critical pillars of cybersecurity. The connected nature of smart factories is exponentially increasing the risks of attacks in the Intelligent Industry era.
