  • Over the past decade, the database market has undergone a transformation that affects both the IT and the finance departments. In fact, as data becomes increasingly vital to business success, some of the most enduring collaborations in many organizations are being formed between finance (which must keep data management on budget) and IT (which must manage the data effectively). These teams are increasingly working together to streamline IT operations and make IT more efficient, freeing up financial resources that can be applied to other areas of the business. In particular, the cost of infrastructure, especially of databases, has been seen as a capital expenditure that may be better spent elsewhere within the organization. Historically, expensive commercial databases have dominated the data management landscape, but this adoption of open-source database systems is growing rapidly. This eWEEK slide show explains why your company should consider open-source databases, if it hasn't already done so.

  • Big data and the Internet of things (IoT) are disrupting entire markets and merging our virtual worlds with our physical worlds. Within the last two years, more than 90 percent of the world's data has been created. IDC predicts that the data we create and copy annually will reach 44 zettabytes, or 44 trillion gigabytes, by 2020. Salesforce projects the number of connected devices available will reach 75 billion by 2020. Data surrounds us. Whether it's on our mobile phones, wearables, or home and/or office devices, we create and consume massive amounts of it each day. Have you ever stopped to think about where and how that data started its day? Who it touched before you? Or what happens to it afterward? In the following slide show, Calvin Hsu, a Citrix vice president, illustrates the journey one datum goes through from inception to reality, highlighting the phases of data—at rest, in use and on the move—and the types of devices, applications and services that data reaches along the way.
