From lakes to watersheds: A better approach to data management

As a data scientist, I have a vested interest in how data is managed in systems. After all, better data management means I can bring more value to the table. But I’ve come to learn, it’s not how an individual system manages data but how well the enterprise, holistically, manages data that amplifies the value […]

The challenge of scaling AI technology

scaling AI DXC Blogs

One key indicator of a safe investment is the need to scale. After a proof of concept has been established, the technology has been shown to function properly and customers demonstrate a clear interest, all that stands between the concept and profits is scale.

Does your enterprise suffer from app overload?

What’s the biggest purported benefit of mobile technology in the enterprise? Increased productivity. With mobile devices, the thinking goes, workers are able to get things done from anywhere and at any time. But none of this can be accomplished without cloud-based apps.

While it’s long been said that to successfully manage the risks in enterprise security, business leadership — executives, the CEO, up to the board of directors — needs to be engaged with security teams, it’s still not happening.

What’s going on with Intel and OpenStack?

Is Intel backing away from the OpenStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud? Good question, but I don’t see it happening myself. The story that questions Intel’s commitment to OpenStack was sparked by news that Intel was pulling out of its Rackspace partnership, the OpenStack Innovation Center. This was a software-testing project meant to encourage the use of OpenStack in the enterprise. […]
