Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) for IBM Power Systems enabling POWER8

The planned availability of Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) for IBM Power Systems enabling POWER8 means: 
Highly scalable storage platform designed to process large data sets across thousands of computing nodes,
Running POWER8-based systems, a microprocessor designed for big data and analytics,
Selecting a cost-effective platform for running big data and analytics workloads,
Find a way to deal with data performance, scalability and acceleration issues, access to memory capabilities inherently needed for fast data access and movement across a wide range of big data, analytics and cognitive applications.
This planned availability also means have increased choice when selecting a top tier distribution for Hadoop and Spark.

Hortonworks +IBM for more choice in open source Hadoop distribution for big data processing

At the core of stakes, we have the performance, scalability and acceleration capabilities of the POWER8 platform. We have the ability to process large data sets across thousands of computing nodes. The ability to quickly gain business insights from structured and unstructured data.
Then, now with Hortonworks HDP available on POWER8-based systems, companies and developers will have increased choice when selecting a distribution for Hadoop and Spark, enabling them to fully exploit the performance, scalability and acceleration capabilities of the POWER8 platform.

The combination of NGINX Plus and IBM's POWER architecture

For those who are unfamiliar, NGINX’s application delivery platform now supports servers based on IBM's POWER architecture, with the latest release of its commercial load balancer and web accelerator software, NGINX Plus R10. 
Then, the combination of NGINX Plus and POWER brings new agility to enterprises, allowing them to scale their infrastructure and application delivery solutions across any environment: public, private and hybrid cloud, containers, and bare metal.

Prototype of the World’s First 1Terabyte SDXC Card at Photokina 2016

A new momentum for Western Digital Corporation that unveiled its SanDisk® 1TB terabyte (TB) SDXC™ card prototype at the world's leading trade fair for photo and video professionals. 
The card aims to address the increasing demand for high resolution content, such as 4K and 8K. 
Higher capacity cards expand the possibilities for professional videographers and photographers, giving them even greater ability to create more of the highest quality content, without the interruption of changing cards.

The importance of testing security controls to ensure they are functioning as expected

Cyber attacks are increasingly sophisticated and are targeting primarily vital infrastructures ad organizations such as health facilities, energy facilities to name a few. This daunting reality highlights the importance of testing security controls to ensure they are functioning as expected. 
In effect, it’s not enough to install security tools throughout the environment. You must test the policies and procedures to be confident the controls in place will stop or detect real-world intrusions.
The necessary information, such as the locations, department and other critical details are indispensable to quickly identify unauthorized configuration changes to endpoint devices that can indicate an attack in progress.

Defend against the most pervasive and dangerous cyber attacks also, means

I have a pleasure to recall that, the following recommendations and guidance when well-implemented across an organization; these controls deliver specific, actionable information that is necessary to defend against the most pervasive and dangerous cyber attacks. 
The recommendations and guidance include: Accurate hardware inventory. Accurate software inventory. Continuous configuration management and hardening. Comprehensive vulnerability management. Patch management. Log management. Identity and access management. In additions, before any damage is done, it is vital for organizations to identify indicators of compromise quickly so that appropriate action can be taken.

More4Apps Mobile Stocktake Application for Oracle E-Business Suite

At the center of stakes, we have: correct inventory, on-hand balances and update, Oracle database, and real time transactions. Query and import data into Oracle EBS from the app without an intermediary server or service.
In effect, the release of More4Apps StocktakeApp allows users to correct inventory, on-hand balances and update these details back to Oracle database using real time transactions.
More4Apps Mobile Application removes the need for paper or large scanners. The Stocktake Application integrates closely with Oracle EBS allowing users to login using their Oracle EBS credentials.
