It increase developer productivity with open standards and broad programming models, including lightweight options for web deployments.
Security Intelligence, Analytics and Advanced Threat Protection
The major advance in new threats has been the level of tailoring and targeting — these are not noisy, mass attacks that are easily handled by simple, signature-dependent security approaches.
• Denial of service: Disrupting business operations.
The sophistication of cyber threats, attackers and their motives is rapidly escalating. Attackers are going after specific organizations and they are exploiting previously unknown vulnerabilities using highly customized malware, making these attacks very difficult to protect against.
The Security Intelligence with new incident forensics and vulnerability management capabilities, along with Big Data analytics solutions, provide 360-degree visibility across an entire network, using real-time correlation and behavioral anomaly detection to help detect threats, vulnerabilities, and compliance risks that might otherwise be missed. New incident forensics capabilities allow for full deep packet capture analysis so all analysis on potential and actual threats can be seen quicker and in deeper detail.
Smarter Storage to Manage Traditional IT Environments
A mix of natural disasters, political upheaval and financial crisis in 2013 has prompted companies to plan for 2014 against a backdrop of economic turmoil and great uncertainty. However, in certain areas of business, there are still some absolute certainties. One such area is that of data storage and storage infrastructure, for which demand will undoubtedly intensify in the year ahead, continuing the trend in recent years of exponential growth.
Storage efficiency: There will be a greater focus on storage efficiency technologies such as storage virtualization, dynamic or thin provisioning.
Consolidation to convergence: Consolidation will give way to convergence. Over the past few years IT has focused on consolidation and much of the low-hanging fruit has now been consolidated. In order to gain further cost savings, the focus will be on convergence of server, storage, networks, and applications.
Big Data: The explosion of unstructured data and mobile applications will generate a huge opportunity for the creation of business value, competitive advantage, and decision support if this data can be managed and accessed efficiently.
Storage scaling: Server and desktop virtualization will increase the need for enterprises to scale up storage systems, non-disruptively as physical server demands increase
