CIO Midmarket Summit

A forum for innovative technology leaders in the midmarket segment

The U.S. midmarkets more than 200,000 companies represent an undeniably strong force in American enterprise. Midmarket organizations in all industries spur innovation and drive economic and job growth, and theyre doing it by getting more out of less. But amid concerns of a waning economic recovery, todays midmarket will need to fully tap available resources and look toward increased innovation, efficiency and expansion through M&A to succeed in the years to come.

The role of the CIO is in a state of transition. IT leaders are now tasked with driving value throughout the enterprise, and have done so by improving processes and workflow, accelerating time to market and identifying new business opportunities. Those engaged in cultivating and retaining talent, leveraging emerging technologies such as cloud software and data analytics, and keeping an eye on strategic merging opportunities are strengthening their organizations for continued growth and the much anticipated economic upturn.

Storage Infrastructure as a Service Organizations rely on corporate data for everything from product design to order processing; it is their most valuable asset. Today’s enterprise data storage solutions are tasked with storing, managing, protecting and providing access to data in order to support business initiatives. The demands on these storage solutions multiply as organizations become more distributed and corporate data grows exponentially. Simultaneously, IT organizations are under continuous pressure to spend less while also taking responsibility for more strategic initiatives. This combination of factors is driving a need for innovative data storage solutions that manage and distribute data more effectively in this changing business environment.

The State of Cloud Storage In the last year, Cloud Storage Providers (CSPs) delivered over an exabyte of data under contract. This astonishing growth heralds a new era for how storage is delivered and consumed. The CSP market has seen new providers, new functionality, improved platform maturity, increased adoption in the enterprise and significant price reductions. Amazon’s S3 service crossed the 1-trillion-object mark1, a significant indication of platform maturity, and all major CSPs dropped their prices multiple times. As public cloud storage becomes critical to enterprise infrastructure, independent testing and monitoring of these systems is becoming all the more critical to IT.

Dealing with Big Data Every day, trillions of bytes of data are generated by organizations and individuals around the world. Companies know there are valuable insights buried within those mountains of bits—and are looking to their CIOs to find ways to use them. This paper shares Pythian’s practical perspective on how to approach the big data challenge organizationally and technically, and now to sift information of value out of the ever-growing background of digital noise.
