Red Hat Build Of Optaplanner Is Now Available In Red Hat Application Foundations
The Red Hat build of OptaPlanner is now available in Red Hat Application Foundations, enabling application developers to turn data and constraints into a best-fit solution.
Using the lightweight, embeddable planning engine from the open source OptaPlanner project, customers can build scalable planning applications that efficiently solve complex optimization challenges such as rostering, vehicle routing, scheduling, or many other constraint satisfaction problems.

In order to deal with the complexity and pace of an ever-changing world, businesses- especially those in asset-intensive industries- are turning to digital solutions to deliver better results with greater competency. According to industry analyst firm IDC, 'By 2026, 75% of large enterprises will rely on AI-infused processes to enhance asset efficiency, streamline supply chains, and improve product quality across diverse and distributed environments.'1 And, with remote work environments increasing, optimized business processes are even more critical as organizations need to make informed decisions in situations where employees may not be located where operations are happening.

Red Hat OpenShift at the edge: zero-touch provisioning
Information technology is undergoing a remarkable evolution, with deployment and maintenance scenarios changing day by day.
Processing and managing data and devices at the edge is increasingly required, so technologies need to adapt to support and encourage the adoption of such strategies.

Red Hat OpenShift is capable of covering needs ranging from the management of an infrastructurally-agnostic application platform to deployment on-premises or in the cloud, whether private, public or hybrid.

However, the ability to adapt to any scenario has evolved enormously over time. Leveraging lighter configurations, such as the compact 3-node deployment mode or the single-node configuration, allow the same flexibility and performance characteristics, albeit with a smaller footprint.

IT News - CxO
CISOs And Their Boards Of Directors: Viewing Cyber Risk Differently
CISOs - the senior level executives responsible for developing and implementing cybersecurity programs for corporations and other organizations - are not happy campers these days. And it's not just because they are chronically understaffed and under constant pressure.
As it turns out, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) often don't see eye-to-eye with boards of directors on a number of fronts, even though boards have been taking cybersecurity more seriously and typically ask more sophisticated questions about risk exposure and management. This further adds to CISO frustration.

Things will likely get better eventually, partly because the Securities and Exchange Commission has proposed new rules for how public companies oversee cybersecurity and information technology. In addition, research firm Gartner predicts that 40 percent of boards will have a dedicated cybersecurity committee overseen by a qualified board member by 2025 - up from less than 10 percent today.

Southwest Airlines: 'Shameful' Technical Debt Bites Back
Welcome to The Long View-where we peruse the news of the week and strip it to the essentials. Let's work out what really matters.
Last month's debacle of canceled flights was caused by decades of technical debt. That's the analysis of Columbia University professor Zeynep Tufekci.

Analysis: SWA needs a cloud burst

Although there were several contributing factors, a lack of scalability in a critical crew scheduling system led to days of near-total paralysis: In many cases, the staff were in the right place to fly and crew the planes, but the SkySolver system had no way of knowing that. Making things worse, manual fallbacks collapsed under the weight of the workload., January 4th, 2023

Digital Business Transformation Comes Of Age In 2023
Regardless of the current state of the overall economy, the top funding priority for organizations beyond traditional IT investments continues to appear to be digital business transformation.
A recent survey of 1,703 information technology leaders conducted by Red Hat identifies digital transformation and technology skills tie as the top priorities (37%), followed by people and skills training (30%). Naturally, all three of those investment areas are closely linked with one another but overall, it remains to be seen how many organizations in the coming year will be doubling down on digital business transformation initiatives.

The challenge, as always, remains the skills gap organizations encounter as they digitize processes, notes Gordon Haff, technology evangelist for Red Hat.

Developing Trends In Data Storage And Protection
Steve Santamaria, CEO, Folio Photonics, comments on developments that he expects to see in the data storage market during 2023.
Data storage will take on global warming

As the world continues to strive toward Net Zero, additional industries will come under the microscope. One industry heavily influenced by this will be the data storage industry. By 2025, data centers / centres will consume >3 percent of the world's electricity and storage can make up anywhere from 10-30 percent of a data center's overall energy consumption. When there is a specific industry accounting for >1 percent of global electricity consumption, people start to take notice and ask what can be done to lessen the power burden. This will create an industry-wide push toward sustainable storage technologies that are more energy-efficient than legacy hardware.

ERP Needs Relevant Functionality In 2023
ERP systems are becoming increasingly critical to help organizations mitigate changing business issues. But ERP needs to include new technology and capabilities to stay relevant.
The ERP industry is currently facing a paradox.

Many organizations are depending on ERP systems to manage an increasingly complex business environment -- and are demanding functionality to handle new issues. Yet they remain yoked to outdated infrastructure models and legacy ERP software.

The cost and complexity of upgrading ERP systems is still a hard sell for many companies. But new functionality and integration with outside systems will help ERP systems meet the changing needs of their customers and make for an easier sell, analysts said.

3 ITOperations And Management Trends To Watch In 2023
IT teams are going to have their hands full in 2023, but these three trends will likely play a key role in keeping operations running effectively.
For many IT teams, 2023 is looking to be a year of daunting challenges.

With fears of economic slowdown and recession, budgets are likely to be constrained as executives ask IT teams to do more with less. IT operations and management teams will not only have to "keep the lights on" and maintain operations but do so in a more optimized way than ever before. Few organizations, even with constrained budgets, will want to just maintain operations, as there is a need to continually develop new services as well.

In the digital world, organizations face a multitude of challenges related to the privacy and security of data pertaining to their employees, customers, and partners.
The sheer volume of data that enterprises handle, and store is humongous, which in turn drives a greater need for data protection practices. However, many organizations use the terms 'data security' and 'data privacy' interchangeably. They believe that their data security policy covers data privacy and vice versa. However, this is not the case. Although the two terms are strongly interconnected, they are not the same..., January 2nd, 2023

5 Ways To Increase Security And Compliance Efficiencies In 2023
Do more with less. That's not an uncommon catchphrase in business. But the reality is many organizations, especially those in technology and similar industries, haven't really had to focus much on cost-cutting and savings measures since the financial crisis of 2007.
Unfortunately, however, increasing geopolitical and other issues are straining some economies, especially here in the U.S. The question that's been asked by many in 2022 is, are we in a recession? The reality is there's been no official declaration, but we're seeing many economic indicators leaning that way.

6 Cybersecurity Trends To Keep An Eye On In The New Year
As 2022 comes to a close and we look forward to starting 2023 off on the right foot, here are 6 cybersecurity trends every organization should keep an eye on in 2023.
1. Ransomware is not going away. During the pandemic, we saw an increase in ransomware attacks, driven partly by newly remote teams and rapidly adopting new technologies. While that may have slowed a bit as nation-state actors shifted focus during the outbreak of conflict in Ukraine, it's likely ransomware attacks won't go away in 2023. A report from Trend Micro anticipates that attackers are likely to keep the same kill chain, but are likely to change the ransomware payload to seek out ways for additional data extortion.

Tip: Install anti-malware and antivirus software and employ continuous risk assessment, risk management, and vulnerability management best practices.

The Cloud Is Under Attack: The State Of Cloud Security In 2023
Widespread adoption of cloud technology presents cybercriminals with a larger target to sharpen their focus on and presents small and mid-sized organizations with serious concerns. But adopting strong cloud practices can help successfully reducing threat risks.
By now, many small and mid-sized organizations have transitioned to the cloud and are running hybrid environments. Not surprisingly, as the adoption of cloud technology grows, it has also become a more attractive target for cybercriminals.

To better understand the reality of cloud security for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs), Sophos recently commissioned a survey of 4,984 IT professionals in SMBs across 31 countries whose organizations use Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Edge Adoption Is Growing Across Industries - Here's Why
Over the past several years, companies across industries have been turning to Edge Computing to empower both operations technology (OT) and information technology (IT) teams, support mission critical applications and data, and rein in costs.
Recently, Edge Computing has gained popularity due to its scalability, ability to manage advanced analytics and prevent downtime. In fact, our recent research with Espalier (formerly Boston Analytics) reveals that the Edge Computing industry is projected to grow by almost $10 billion through 2026. This fast-growing evolution is similar to the cloud a decade ago, and perhaps even 'greased the skids' for faster adoption of Edge Computing.

The Rise Of Cloud Data Architecture
The rising popularity of cloud data architecture signals a central theme: Global businesses in the coming years will migrate their data center operations fully to the cloud, as it offers some inherent advantages over on-premise set-ups. Business survival in the digital age has become synonymous with migration to the cloud.
When businesses look for unlimited data storage and exceptional computing capabilities at an affordable cost, they turn toward cloud data architecture for enterprise Data Management.

Businesses that want greater control over their data create a custom, in-house private cloud service. Private and public clouds are complex distributed systems, which are better with an application architecture that breaks down the processing and data into distinct components.
