The Made-for-Each-Other Partnership: IBM and Akamai

akamaiWhen two giants join hands, the result is a mind-boggling possibility explosion with no end in sight.  Therefore, when IBM joined hands with Akamai, it promised to give faster delivery, and enhanced cloud applications, which can only be said to be the beginning of innovations that can be best described as futuristic.  Businesses today are looking into the future and want technology that will meet tomorrow’s market.  They find today’s technology a thing of the past and are hungry for new innovations, which is why the combined services of IBM and Akamai have been welcomed with open arms.

Akamai is well renowned for its cloud platform that floats higher than any other brand in the market.  Almost everyone is sure to have used Akamai’s cloud sometime or another as Akamai has reached far across the globe and across industries.  It also made cloud computing easy to use by removing the complexities that one normally encounters in a cloud environment and focused on the easy-to-use factor which enabled businesses to achieve their goals faster.  If it is advanced security, reliability and visibility that you need, then Akamai is the cloud for you.

IBM, therefore has made a wise choice in its partnership as Akamai knows what it is doing and knows what the future needs.  So IBM, with its foremost priority being its clients, has enhanced its services so that the user can increase productivity. No wonder it has been a leader for the past 50 years and brought in a high revenue of $88 billion in 2000.  Its products and services are widespread with customized micro-chips, application software, storage products and many more. It does not stop there and the giant is growing by leaps and bounds, day by day.

IBM and Akamai have improved cloud computing by approaching the problems from a very different angle.  Previously companies built more data centers as an answer to improving performance and built complex and confusing network infrastructures in an effort to improve cloud applications.  The IBM-Akamai partnership, however, has brought new, simple, and easy to manipulate solutions that have succeeded in making network traffic flow more easily and has effortlessly improved application performance.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
