As agencies continue to discover new ways to take advantage of Big Data technology and techniques to achieve their missions, the cloud is quickly emerging as the platform of choice, because it offers a secure and effective means of supporting mission-critical applications and related workload. In this event, a federal IT executive will discuss best practices and strategies for leveraging the power of the cloud in Big Data.
Agency IT organizations are under increasing pressure to speed the delivery of IT services while also lowering costs. Unfortunately, many agencies still depend on legacy database systems, which fail to measure up on performance and come with rising maintenance costs. The solution? A dual database strategy. In this webcast, database industry experts will explain how agencies can reduce the risks associated with a wholesale migration to a new database platform while taking advantage of recent technology advances.
During the last year, federal agencies and major corporations alike have learned how costly a data breach can be. Fortunately, most data breaches are actually preventable.
