One of the biggest risks to enterprises is the remote user; especially the remote user who is on public Wi-Fi and never in the office. What’s interesting - is most of the folks never in the office are some of the highest performing sales, marketing and customer relationship managers your firm has. All of them are smart and all of them know enough about IT to be a danger to themselves and others.
They also, usually have a problematic relationship with IT and corporate rules in general. From the busy IT manager, or director and sometimes the CISO - who they have their personal cellphone – “a problem” can occur and even if not q true issue “the problem” frequently leave a breathless “I’m-just this-close-to-landing-a-maior-deal-and-I-need-to-update-my-Flash-player-and-I-can’t-because-I-am-locked-down, -call-me-back-Kay?” We all know someone like this who of course neglects their asset id and user id when hysterically leaving voice mail. The help desk is for “other” people.
If these folks are on sketchy public-Wi-Fi which is blocking SSL VPN and IPSEC tunnels your System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) infrastructure cannot help you fix this “problem” which - woke the CISO up at 4:00AM. Unless you have some other remote management solution in place you are reduced to giving up admin passwords, and walking through a really non-technical person how to install the update; remotely over a poor-quality cell phone connection.
Mobility demands capability and the capability to help the “high performing problem” is sadly not found in the storied windows domain centric solution of Microsoft’s SCCM. What’s required is a solution to be able to deliver what is needed, when it’s needed no matter where it’s needed. This is the modern business challenge which “inside the network” tools can’t deliver. A global workforce requires a global solution to make the “problem” go away.

What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore

Engage Your Workforce with a Modern Employee Intranet Solution The employee intranet has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the early 1990s.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013. Over the years, AWS, Google, Microsoft, and many others in the industry have accelerated the adoption of a distributed query engine model within their products. For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
