Google has insisted UK user data will remain safe despite plans to move millions of accounts to the US, where there is weaker oversight. The tech giant said it will shift control of UK data from Google Ireland – where it is under tough EU regulation – to its American parent Google LLC as a result of Brexit. EU-wide GDPR rules which require firms to protect people’s data and privacy are among the strictest in the world, but the US has no equivalent.

It’s no secret that DevOps teams typically have three main priorities: increasing agility and innovation, improving collaboration, and delivering products faster to market. It’s also no secret that they will be quick to adopt any technology that supports these goals.
Containerisation is a natural fit for this framework: increasing the scalability and dynamism of the cloud to develop and update applications faster, meet the ever-increasing demands placed on DevOps teams, and ultimately deliver better customer experiences. However, there are a few obstacles still standing in the way.

Underpinning today’s data revolution are data architectures which define how data is stored, arranged, managed and used.
With the rise of data-intensive applications such as AI and analytics and the deluge of unstructured data brought about by IoT, there is a growing need for more efficient and flexible data architectures so that organisations can keep data centre costs low and increase speed, agility and time-to-value for data initiatives.

As of 2017, only 20 per cent of organisations were using artificial intelligence (AI) in their daily operations. While AI algorithms are still being developed and optimised, this technology already helps companies significantly improve the way they perform routine business tasks. And by allowing mundane tasks to be done more consistently and accurately, AI can provide employees with more time and mental space to perform cognitively sophisticated tasks.
Among the 20 per cent of organisations using AI, many have developed useful methods for deploying it in their operations. Here are some intriguing cases of AI deployment to encourage you to delegate your own repetitive tasks to the technology.
The vast majority of businesses today acknowledge that their data is important, even critical to their operations. Despite this, however, many organisations fail to take adequate measures to safeguard this crucial asset.
With data breaches caused by cyber-attacks on the rise, protecting data has become paramount, and yet data management often remains an afterthought. It has become imperative to not only develop a data management strategy but harness appropriate technology in the form of a data management platform. This is essential to prevent data loss events from malicious attacks or disasters, as well as for compliance and business continuity purposes.
