Technical skills, while critical, are simply not enough to ensure professional growth and achieve maximum potential in your field. In fact, a lack of soft skills — defined as the traits and interpersonal skills (non-technical) that characterize a person’s relationships with other people — has been cited as a major contributor to engineering project failures. Industry studies put that failure rate between 40% and 70%. In this white paper, learn why your firm might be wasting resources and failing to motivate employees by neglecting soft skills training in communication, organization, leadership and more.

As businesses plunge into the digital future, no asset will have a greater impact on success than data. The ability to collect, harness, analyze, protect, and manage data will determine which businesses disrupt their industries, and which are disrupted; which businesses thrive, and which disappear. But traditional storage solutions are not designed to optimally handle such a critical business asset. Instead, businesses need to adopt an all-flash data center. In their new role as strategic business enablers, IT leaders have the responsibility to ensure that their businesses are protected, by investing in flexible, future-proof flash storage solutions. The right flash solution can deliver on critical business needs for agility, rapid growth, speed-to-market, data protection, application performance, and cost-effectiveness—while minimizing the maintenance and administration burden.

Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.

Data center requirements are shifting as the business environment evolves to leverage new technologies. Organizations are turning to multicloud environments comprising a mix of private cloud, public cloud, and on-premise infrastructure to best address their unique needs. Understandably, this shift is putting a renewed emphasis on security, automation, orchestration, and agility. IT leaders are responding by building and deploying multicloud data center networks that leverage automation and software-defined networks (SDN) as a cost effective means of providing dynamic network control. Of course, while many organizations are recognizing the need for a data center upgrade, not all have the same drivers. All, however, need to make a business case for the investment. Here are four common inflection points that can help you to justify the need for data center upgrades that support business goals.

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems. Many existing data protection solutions fail to meet the demands of critical databases because they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach to database backup and recovery not only exposes you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts performance and makes it difficult to recover within acceptable timeframes.

Virtually every business-oriented conversation Wikibon has with senior IT leaders includes a discussion of digital transformation. The relevance to this research is the increasing interdependency between organizations and the data they use, create, access, share and store. Digital means data and lots of it; and this data must be protected. The data requirements facing organizations today as a direct result of digital initiatives are unprecedented and require new approaches for protecting and enabling recovery for high value data assets. Governments around the world are trying to keep pace with the digital tsunami and new/evolving regulations will further pressure data protection and recovery requirements. For example, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) states that organizations must take appropriate measures to ensure the ability to restore personal data “in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.” Beginning in May of 2018, penalties for non-co
