Are you about to make the move to SAP HANA or S/4HANA? One-stop shopping offerings —hardware, services, consulting, and managed cloud services all from one vendor —can greatly reduce complexity, cost, and disruption during an SAP modernization initiative. An SAP HANA deployment can be a demanding, complex and time-consuming project. In a recent IDC white paper, “For SAP Database and Cloud Migration, Don't Go It Alone”, based on what IDC has seen SAP modernization, SAP database adoption, and SAP cloud migration together pose a challenge with too many variables for most businesses. IDC sees this complexity as, “why very few businesses go it alone ...

Over the past 3 years, I have accumulated 45GB of data on my internal hard drive. In my first 10 years with Hitachi Vantara, I accumulated 83GB of data. Doing the math, that’s 15GB/year over the last 3 years, versus ~8GB/year over the first 10 years. My own data growth has nearly doubled in the past 3 years, and this is just from presentations, documents, images and videos like this one .     I’m sure that those of you dealing with machine data, IoT and other more data intensive workloads are seeing far more growth than I am. Like a lot of you out there, my older data just sits there doing nothing until I want to reference it for some ...

In December 2020, Hitachi Vantara working closely with Cloudera, certified Lumada Data Catalog (LDC) 6.0 on Cloudera Data Platform (CDP).

With this certification, customers can use Hitachi’s data fingerprinting algorithms to automatically identify sensitive data in LDC, share that information as tags with CDP Data Catalog and then apply policies in CDP to secure the data; all automatically..

It is no exaggeration to say that the world runs on open-source software: the globe’s financial, manufacturing, commerce, and supply chain systems are directly or indirectly dependent on open source code. Additionally, the majority of innovative new software is open-source, with key projects driving cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, containers, and orchestration. Data and analytics is a key sector for open source adoption. Almost three-quarters (74%) of respondents to 451 Research's recent Voice of the Enterprise: Data & Analytics survey agreed that their organization uses, or has used, a data platform technology ...

I’m excited to announce our imminent release of Lumada Data Catalog version 6.0 on December 8 th . This release has been in the works since we were acquired by Hitachi Vantara in January of this year, and I’m very proud of what the team has put together. Let me tell you about a few highlights. Business Rules A buzzword that has been bandied about lately is “Active Metadata”. In simplest terms, metadata is active when actions are taken autonomously on it. In a separate announcement, Pentaho 9.1 added search and input steps for Lumada Data Catalog, which allows a Dataflow to be parameterized, to search the catalog for files matching a condition, ...

I often get the opportunity to speak at industry events or present at webinars, and the brief is to inspire leaders with an "ah-ha" moment based on a vision for the future--a vision that will stretch imaginations, challenge biases and question status quo. I often run to handwritten notes that were the making of the book Future Frames, ideas from my research and consulting journey with industry innovators, think tanks, and heads of government and conversations with change makers. As I accelerate efforts towards shaping this body of work and put it together for my book, it is important to revisit and speak to leaders who will be featured in the writings. ...

As oil fueled the economic growth in the 20 th century, data will be the catalyst to drive digital transformation and economic growth in the 21 st century. If one believes that data is the catalyst for economic growth in the 21 st century, then we need to ask this critically important question - Is our organization effective enough in leveraging data and analytics to power our business models?  Most organizations struggle to correctly utilize historical data insights to predict future business outcomes. Modern businesses have the infrastructure and culture that helps them to learn from AI/ML data insights and successfully evolve, innovate and monetize. ...

Qorus in Outlook So far, Qorus has been marketed as a self-serve RFP tool. While that is its main function, there are some additional capabilities that are too helpful to not mention!  As a sales person, you likely write A LOT of emails. Instead of having to save sales info from marketing, you can save your favorite content and descriptions of solutions and services for your customers. We also have a number of question/answer pairs that can help you be responsive to your customers questions. For example, if you wanted to include information about the types of training we offer, you can use the search function to search the keyword “training”. As ...

Culture is created by all of the actions we take over and over again that serve to reinforce ideas, habits, and practices. At some point we share those ideas and practices throughout an organization or community and call it culture. Then, when new challenges present themselves, we face them using those ideas, habits, and practices. At Hitachi Vantara, we see the arrival of DataOps as the beginning of a new cycle of culture creation that will permeate all areas of an enterprise. A recent whitepaper called “ Is DataOps Your Windfall of Value? ” describes the technology of DataOps and how DataOps, as envisioned by Hitachi Vantara, is organized ...
