5 IT Risk Assessment Frameworks Compared
Formal risk assessment methodologies can help take guesswork out of evaluating IT risks if applied appropriately. Here is real-world feedback on using COBIT, OCTAVE, FAIR, NIST RMF, and TARA
Bob Violino wroites in CSO Online, "From a cybersecurity standpoint, organizations are operating in a high-risk world. The ability to assess and manage risk has perhaps never been more important. 'Having a risk management framework is essential, because risk can never be totally eliminated; it can only be effectively managed,' says Arvind Raman, CISO at telecommunications company Mitel Networks. 'When it isn't, organizations will likely find themselves the target of a data breach or ransomware attack, or be vulnerable to any number of other security issues.'..."

Digital CxOs Have Much To Learn From F1 Racing Teams
One of the more profound aspects of digital business transformation that many Digital CxOs fail to appreciate is the degree to which modern processes need to be able to process and analyze data in near real-time at the network edge.
"Most existing enterprise applications are batch-oriented; as data is collected, it is sent as part of a batch to process overnight. This is the primary reason so many legacy applications are not synchronized with one another. Arguably, the best example of this is an inventory application that shows a product is available only to discover the last one available was actually sold several hours previously..."

Gartner: Why CIOs Need To Replan Their Roadmap
IT has always been about gaining more efficiency by automating processes, but greater efficiency doesn't lead to a step change in business outcomes
"Heads of IT are being urged to consider how they take their role forward, as organisations develop business strategies that rely heavily on digital technologies.

Gartner analysts said technology can help CIOs gain freedom from historical insights, legacy business practices and bias.

Speaking during the opening keynote at the virtual Gartner Symposium conference, Daryl Plummer, distinguished research vice-president and Gartner Fellow, said: 'CIOs 'chief information officers' need to reconsider how they think about value, and how they get to that value. They need a more expansive view of the role technology plays in doing so, and they must be bold to reach beyond the 'where' to discover freedom.'

Most CIOs And CISOs Underestimate The Risk Of An OT Breach
A research study by Skybox Security found that 83% of organizations suffered an operational technology (OT) cybersecurity breach in the prior 36 months
"The research also uncovered that organizations underestimate the risk of a cyberattack, with 73% of CIOs and CISOs 'highly confident' their organizations will not suffer an OT breach in the next year.

'Not only do enterprises rely on OT, the public at large relies on this technology for vital services including energy and water. Unfortunately, cybercriminals are all too aware that critical infrastructure security is generally weak. As a result, threat actors believe ransomware attacks on OT are highly likely to pay off,' said Skybox Security CEO Gidi Cohen. 'Just as evil thrives on apathy, ransomware attacks will continue to exploit OT vulnerabilities as long as inaction persists.'

Why The CIO-CFO Relationship Is Key To Digital Success
CIOs and CFOs haven't always gotten along. But with digital transformations now dominating budgets, business success depends on their ability to work together.
Mary K. Pratt writes in SearchCIO, "A strong CIO-CFO relationship has become critical for enterprise success as organizations speed delivery of their digital initiatives while also using technology to deliver efficiencies.

"There are so many important C-level relationships," said Chris Stephenson, national managing principal and leader of product innovation at the accounting and advisory firm Grant Thornton. "But if you want your organization to invest in the right places and have the most impact, [the] CIO and CFO must work together and speak the same language."

What does that mean in practical terms?

Nearly Half Of Large Enterprises Can't Trust CRM Data As 'Single Source Of Truth'
In a statement on customer relationship management (CRM), a new report says that 47% of large enterprises believe they can't rely on their CRM data as a 'single source of truth' on customers.
The report, 'The State of Enterprise CRM Data Management: 2021,' shows that the 'high expectations for actionable insights from CRM data are rarely being met,' according to Odaseva, an enterprise data platform for Salesforce.

The report by Forrester was released last week and commissioned by Odaseva.

The inability of many enterprises to benefit from CRM data is caused by two key challenges, the report indicates: The majority of enterprises lack the basic foundations of data management, and struggles with data security requirements are reducing the value of CRM data.

3 Strategies For Virtual Student-Centered Learning
Don't strive for perfection-instead, embrace mistakes and funny moments as you build community and relationships that support student-centered learning
When secondary educators plunged into emergency online teaching in March 2020, we faced a slew of challenges. Among those challenges was the lack of student engagement after the novelty of logging in from home in pajamas wore off.

What started as a two week attempt at keeping things as normal as possible 'just until after Spring Break,' became more than a year of uncertainty combined with lack of knowledge and resources to maintain high levels of engagement and content delivery. This is not for lack of trying, most definitely on the part of educators everywhere, and we've now reached a point where teaching blog posts like 'Is Anyone In Teaching Actually Happy?' fill my teacher-gram.

Using EdTech To Personalize Education For All Students
The global pandemic has required many teachers, students, and parents to adjust to many changes in the education system - and do so quickly
Pre-pandemic, the rollout of a digital learning program would take months; last year, schools had weeks (if not days) to implement remote learning models to ensure students continued their education despite all social distancing rules. Education technologies - or edtech - got a huge boost from a nice-to-have to a must-have.

As schools around the world prepare for the next term, everyone is keeping their fingers crossed that these will include as much in-person learning as possible. However, 'going back to normal' is clearly not an option. Online learning is here to stay, at least partially, in a hybrid model of education.

What Is Multicloud, And What Are Its Benefits For Higher Ed?
Having multiple cloud environments can help institutions avoid overspending and underprovisioning
Higher education institutions face a rapidly evolving technology landscape. A growing number of students are expressing a desire for flexible learning environments, and administrators are turning to learning analytics and adaptive technologies to improve student retention and success.

Thankfully, the IT capabilities that are needed to support this convoluted landscape of technologies have one common component: the cloud. When institutions have sufficient cloud storage, computational and Big Data management technologies, they are more likely to get the most out of their IT investments.

AI And Deep Learning
The horizon of what repetitive tasks a computer can replace continues to expand due to artificial intelligence (AI) and the sub-field of deep learning (DL).
Artificial intelligence gives a device some form of human-like intelligence.

Deep learning is an AI technology that has made inroads into mimicking aspects of the human brain - giving a device the ability to process information for contextual analysis and action.

Researchers continue to develop self-teaching algorithms that enable deep learning AI applications like chatbots.

To understand deep learning better, we need to understand it as part of the AI evolution:

AI Is Learning To Talk Back. How That's Changing The Customer And Employee Experience
The use of conversational AI tech has been increasingly rapidly, in part thanks to covid.
A long-term fallout of the Covid crisis has been the rise of the contactless enterprise, in which customers, and likely employees, interact with systems to get what they need or request. This means a pronounced role for artificial intelligence and machine learning, or conversational AI, which add the intelligence needed to deliver superior customer or employee experience.

Deloitte recently analyzed patents in the area of conversational AI to assess the direction of the market -- and the technology has been developing quickly.

Best Data Analytics Tools For Analyzing & Presenting Data
Businesses collect thousands of data points each day, but those that effectively use the data they're collecting see an average increase of 8 percent in their revenues and an average decrease of 10 percent in their costs
However, using data is much more difficult than collecting it and requires specialized analytics tools to gain the proper insights. Here are a few options for the best data analytics tools for analyzing and presenting data...

Data analytics is the process of studying information in order to gain insights from it. Companies typically collect data in an unstructured format and must use data analytics to structure it and turn it into something they can use and understand. Data analytics highlights trends in company data that can tell organizations things like which of their products is most popular, when their customers make the largest purchases, and which demographics make up the majority of their customer base...

97% Of Data Leaders Have Multiple BI And Reporting Apps
A new report on data sprawl shows that nearly every data leader is using multiple business intelligence (BI) and reporting apps.
The report, 'The State of Data and High Costs of Data Sprawl' by Hakkoda, indicates that data sprawl is a compounding and costly issue and likely to worsen with today's proliferation of tools and scarcity of talent, according to the company.

Hakkoda, a cloud data company specializing in Snowflake, released the report last week.

'According to McKinsey data, a mid-sized company with $5 billion of operating costs might spend $250 million on data management,' said Ha Hoang, co-founder and chief operating officer of Hakkoda.

'Those are just the hard costs. When you factor in the impact of inefficient and duplicate processes, bad data and the inability to innovate - which this research shows are fundamental issues - the business costs are much greater.'

Work-life balance and commute times are now the two main factors people look at when deciding where to work
In the hybrid working era, many people are choosing their next employer based on work-life balance, a new report from telecoms firm NTT suggests.

Based on a poll of 1,146 workers and managers across 23 countries, the report states that the workforce is almost evenly split between the idea of working from home, working exclusively in an office, or working in a hybrid arrangement.

Almost a third (30 percent) would prefer working from home, with the same percentage (30 percent) preferring a hybrid model. The majority (39 percent) still prefer working from an office.

Why I Wrote The Linux Cookbook, Second Edition
Spoiler alert: 'Most tech authors don't write to make money. We write to share cool stuff.'
Once upon a time, way back in 2003, I had an idea. 'Hey,' I said to myself, 'I should write a Linux book. It will be for Linux users, rather than coders. It will cover the basic tasks that Linux users want to know about.'

I was so enchanted by this idea that I reviewed the notes I had collected during my Linux adventures and started writing an outline. I pitched it to O'Reilly Media, and wonder of wonders, they said yes. The writing process was long and horrible, because I had no idea how to write a book, but my editors were patient and amazing.

Red Hat Announces General Availability Of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5
Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5, the latest version of a leading enterprise Linux platform
Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers a common, open operating system that extends across clouds, traditional datacenter operations and out to the edge. The platform enables IT teams to lean on existing skills while they use new and expanded capabilities to build the transformative applications and services required by their business, regardless of where these workloads may ultimately live.

Recent studies indicate that organizations are realizing that using public cloud exclusively may not be economically feasible for long-term scale. At the same time, Gartner predicts that by 2026, 'public cloud spending will exceed 45% of all enterprise IT spending, up from less than 17% in 2021.'1 Red Hat has long championed a hybrid multicloud world, where customers can make the vision of any application, anywhere, a reality by choosing the right environment and technologies that build on a flexible, more consistent foundation. This makes a common Linux foundation, tailored for the rigors of traditional datacenters as well as the complexities of multicloud and edge computing deployments, a necessity for digital transformation.

Their battle with Linux stretches back many years. Back in 2001, former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer famously tarnished Linux 'a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches'. Microsoft also initiated its 'Get the Facts' marketing campaign from mid-2003, which specifically criticized Linux server usage, total cost of ownership, security, indemnification and reliability. The campaign was widely criticized for spreading misinformation.
