This press announcement by OpenText highlights the acquisition and proposed use of the creative collaboration and file sharing solutions from Hightail to enhance OpenText content services. While not directly addressed in the release as a component of OpenText’s eDiscovery plans, it is reasonable to highlight that the transfer and ingestion of large data sets can be a challenge for eDiscovery practitioners, a fact highlighted in recent eDiscovery software provider announcements around data transfers.
Where does the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) turn when it needs business enterprise data stored on the cloud for a criminal investigation? According to a recent DOJ memo, the default rule is now turn to the business enterprise first and the cloud only if necessary.
Think of the irony. Not too long ago, the cloud was seen as a risky place to store and manage enterprise data. Now, with cloud increasingly seen as the safest place to move data, too much data may be getting moved offsite.
Enterprise software’s days are numbered, and if you don’t adopt artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, your data center will be useless.
The CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR Compliance is designed to meet both actual, mandatory EU legal personal data protection requirements (i.e., Directive 95/46/EC and its implementations in the EU member states) and the forthcoming requirements of the GDPR.
“The cloud is a funny discussion. If it’s secure, all things being equal, they don’t really care where they get the information. The clients are driving the discussion.”
The adoption of cloud applications is growing across enterprises worldwide. According to Gartner, by 2020 more than 30 percent of the 100 largest enterprise applications will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only – encouraging any enterprise fence-sitters to move in the direction of the cloud.
Don’t let the term “cloud” fool you into thinking that the information is not in a specific location. It is, and it’s important to know the exact geographic location of the server where your data will be stored, including any back-up locations.
Hybrid cloud computing, in simplest terms, is the use of cloud computing and on-site servers at the same time. The dual nature of the arrangement solves some significant problems for organizations that need to centralize access to databases and apps.
Peter Levine, a general partner at venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, has an interesting working theory. He believes that cloud computing is soon going to take a back seat to edge computing — and we will very quickly see the majority of processing taking place at the device level.
