5 IT Management Practices Certain To Kill IT Productivity
Sometimes, the best way to fix a broken organization is to stop breaking it. Here's what you're doing to keep your staff from getting real IT work done.
Successful CIOs, like all highly placed executives, must be adept at running an organization that's good at getting work out the door.

Unfortunately, many of the most popular management techniques for fixing poor organizational performance don't work. Or worse.

If you want better guidance, start with Peter Drucker's observation that, 'Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done.'

Modernizing IT: What's Holding Businesses Back?
While businesses today face a paradigm shift in how they operate, they must first become more agile and gain a greater visibility across operations as they embrace modernization.
The business world, like society at large, is experiencing a moment of turbulence. At this year's World Economic Forum in Davos, leaders called it a 'polycrisis' -- a collision of stressors from inflation to recession to global conflict to supply chain crises to the possibility that globalization as we know it will fragment into conflicting regional interests.

How can businesses cope? They have no choice but to adapt, turn on a dime, move at speed and rapidly scale.

IT News - Storage
Secure Sustainable Storage A Global Imperative
Data storage consumes an estimated 4% of the global electrical energy supply, and the demand for data storage will accelerate for the foreseeable future. We need innovations in storage software and hardware to enable economical, resilient, and environmentally sustainable data management.
The Need for Sustainable Storage

Everybody has lost valuable data, due to various reasons. Most of this can never be recreated in whole or in part. In NASA's case, valuable technical design data stored on 7-track magnetic tape has been lost, due to the unavailability of still-functioning tape drives.'i' This will soon be the case for data stored on floppy disks. (When was the last time you saw an 8-inch floppy disk reader?)

Another major storage problem is power demand. Within the data center, storage typically accounts for a significant portion of that electricity. Overall, Data storage consumes an estimated 4% of the global electrical energy supply, and the demand for data storage will accelerate for the foreseeable future with the coming Data Tsunami. Thus, sustainability matters when it comes to enterprise storage.

Bard AI vs ChatgGPT - Early Impressions
Google made its AI-powered chatbot available in 180 countries and almost immediately caused hyperactivity in our internal comparison engines. Here's what we found
Amidst the growing trend big tech companies launching their own generative AI solutions, the latest being IBM, Google did the unthinkable. Not only did they launch the AI chatbot Bard in 180 countries, they also added several new features such as new language, ease of exporting text to Google Docs and Gmail, visual search and a dark mode.

And if this did not send some shivers amongst competitors, Google has also promised features like AI image generation powered by Adobe as well as integration with third-party web services such as OpenTable and Instacard. And Google stuck to its DNA of waiting for someone to innovate and then seamlessly and sometimes shamelessly follow suit with their own solutions.

Ampere Heads Off Intel, AMD's Cloud-Optimized Cpus With A 192-Core ARM Chip
What's better than 128 cores? 192 of course, or that's the bet Ampere is making with the launch of its next-generation Arm datacenter processors this week.
Since breaking into the datacenter CPU market in 2020 with the launch of its 80-core Ampere Altra parts, the company's strategy of packing a ton of relatively small, efficient Arm cores into a single socket has paid dividends. Today, nearly every major cloud provider, with the exception of Amazon of course, has put Ampere's cores to work in their clouds.

With the launch of its 192-core Ampere One processor family this week, Ampere hopes to cement its hard-won cloud foothold, even as Intel and AMD circle like buzzards with their own core-optimized parts.

So what has Ampere brought to the table this time?

What The White House's Cybersecurity Strategy Means For CISOs
Cybersecurity is a huge concern. Businesses and individuals stand to lose a lot of time and money in the event of an unauthorized exposure or corruption of sensitive data. And lately, these types of attacks have started impacting businesses that affect the entire population.
For example, the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack in 2021 led to the shutdown of a crucial pipeline system that supplied about 45% of the east coast's fuel. Operations didn't resume until an unknown amount-likely in the millions of dollars-was paid to the attackers.

These types of incidents involving high-profile organizations are, unfortunately, all too common. The San Francisco 49ers were hit with a ransomware attack that exposed information about 21,000 people. And the Glenn County Office of Education in California experienced a ransomware attack that cost it $400,000.

Red Hat Releases RHEL 9.2 To Customers, With Buffet Of Rebuilds For The Rest Of Us
Red Hat has released version 9.2 of its enterprise Linux distro, which is free for existing customers with current contracts. As usual, there are a load of recompiled rebuilds to choose from as well.
RHEL 9.2 is the latest biannual update to IBM's enterprise Linux distribution. It's a minor point upgrade, bringing various subcomponents to slightly more recent versions.

The company has a "technical blog post" about the improvements in this version, but for us, it's a bit light on detail. There was more info in the announcement of the beta, back in March. The big new feature seems to be an optional special kernel for Arm64 servers that uses a 64kB page size, up from the 4kB default. Although this means less efficient memory allocation, it may improve performance for servers working on very large, contiguous data sets.

Is Your Cloud Strategy Working? Why Multicloud By Design Is The Way Forward.
With the rise of cloud computing, many organizations rapidly adopted public cloud services alongside cloud principles in dedicated IT environments, or private clouds, to accelerate innovation and meet business requirements. This led to the rise of multicloud: today, almost nine out of 10 IT environments include a mix of public and private clouds.
In some instances, organizations undertook a thoughtful and planned approach to their multicloud strategies. But in many cases, organizations found themselves in this multicloud world by happenstance-new solutions and services were rapidly onboarded, each with its own ecosystem of proprietary tools, lacking interoperability and operational consistency. Many found these environments difficult to manage, govern and modernize, all while controlling costs. All these challenges limited the benefits the multicloud model was supposed to unlock.

3 Ways To Jump-Start Your Journey To SD-WAN, SSE, and SASE
IT departments must now take steps to embrace SASE as traditional network architectures were never designed for the cloud.
For decades, organizations have relied on traditional architecture to secure their network based on firewalls and other perimeter defenses. As organizations massively moved their workloads to the cloud, users are now accessing sensitive data in the cloud through unsecured links, outside of the corporate network perimeter and from any device. This trend has accelerated as hybrid working has become the new normal.

Traditional architectures were centered around a perimeter-based security model, with the data center as the central hub for all network traffic. This architecture forced IT departments to backhaul traffic to the data center for security reasons, significantly impacting cloud application performance.
