These days, you're probably hearing a lot of hype about "big data." Vendors are currently hawking a wealth of new tools, all of which promise to help your organization unlock previously inaccessible insights from your proprietary information. According to the authors, there is no doubt that big data, i.e., organization-wide data that's being managed in a centralized repository, can yield valuable discoveries that will result in improved products and performance — if properly analyzed. Nonetheless, you must look before you leap. First, is your company culture ready for such a move? How will data managers be affected when scores of discrete data silos are gathered and reviewed as a whole? How will you involve leadership and others in ongoing decision-making processes? How will you choose your architecture and tools from the dizzying array of options that are currently available? How will you stay up-to-date in this rapidly evolving field? Finally, how will you train your company's users so that they can actually leverage the new capabilities? This ExecBlueprint explores these and other key concerns.

Live Event Date: March 18, 2014 @ 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT Public cloud services like Dropbox took off in the workplace because enterprise file sharing needed (very badly) to catch up with enterprise email. Most organizations already know how to enable secure access to email via mobile devices. Email clients like Outlook automatically sync your email so you have access to it offline, and of course you can send email to people outside your organization. Dropbox and other cloud file sharing technologies jumped ahead of SMB file shares by offering this type of experience sharing, but now the technology exists to do the same thing with the file shares already in your data center. With DatAnywhere, you can leverage your existing storage infrastructure, permissions, and Active Directory to give users the benefits of cloud-style file sharing while keeping data on your existing SMB/CIFS file shares. With DatAnywhere you can: Create secure private cloud experience using your existing file sharing infrastructure Keep data on your file servers and definitive copy in corporate storage Keep and enforce existing permissions (e.g., NTFS and AD) Provide secure, enterprise-capable file synchronization and mobile device access Provide secure file sharing with customers, partners and other third parties Featured Speakers: David Gibson - VP at Varonis Systems Rob Sobers - Director at Varonis Systems Paul Gillin - QuinStreet Moderator Attend this live eSeminar and be automatically entered to win a new iPad Air!
