Decisiveness is going to be at a premium, and data has to guide directed action.

Teresa Carlson, President and Chief Growth Officer

EXECUTIVE

Leadership at the next level

Our executive and emerging technologies report focuses on a strategic approach to disruptive change.

  • Edge computing will seem overhyped in 2022, but by 2024 it will have changed the world.
  • Everyone has rushed to the cloud, but observability will win the day for performance and customer experience.
  • Leaders of hybrid-remote workforces need to work on empathy, accountability and the new role of offices.

SECURITY

Fighting supply chain threats, ransomware and more

Security experts face rising threats, but some of the oldest tactics are still the best. Keys to 2022:

  • Ransomware is professionalizing, and continues to target the supply chain.
  • How DevSecOps snuck up on your organization.
  • What you already know about stopping new attacks.

It’s not if you’re going to get hit with a ransomware attack — it’s when.

Organizations must reinvent themselves periodically. The next wave of reinvention will be driven by data.

Shawn Bice, President of Products and Technology

IT/DEVOPS

Navigating new challenges

The cloud drove a decade-long wave of frenetic transformation. Here’s what’s next:

  • Serverless is going to be big. And more confusing than most IT teams realize.
  • Data residency laws will create headaches for global IT organizations.
  • AIOps and observability are converging; they’ll be inextricably linked by the end of 2022.

PUBLIC SECTOR

Innovators drive government services

Volatile trends and emerging technologies will determine mission success.

  • Security and cloud migration remain top priorities.
  • Biden’s executive order on cybersecurity and the modernization fund inspire action.
  • Threat intelligence will be a priority, though the private sector will move first.

There’s no reason that it should be any harder to navigate the local employment agency on your phone than it is to use your banking app.
