Nearly half of companies can’t respond to insider threats until it’s too late.
Almost 3/4 of IT directors say their inability to gain insights through data analytics will hurt their companies.
And most consumers don’t want brands to communicate with them over social media or mobile apps — a plain old email or text is just fine.
These are among the latest findings from top IT research. And here’s your tech provider’s roundup.
Insider threats: too little, too late
Fortune favors the smart. That’s why tech providers will want to take advantage of Intel’s new training platform, Intel Partner University.
Intel Partner University offers a variety of digital training formats, including on-demand trainings, online videos and webinars. Intel partners can complete Competencies and earn digital Pro Badges to show their particular technical or solution subject-matter expertise.
Your small and midsize data-center customers have new options from Intel: a new generation of entry-level server CPUs, the Intel Xeon E-2200 processors.
This new processor family comprises 12 SKUs, designated E-22xx. They range from 4 cores/4 threads to 8 cores/16 threads. In terms of top processing speeds, the two high-end SKUs each have a maximum Turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz.
For your SMB data-center customers, the benefits can come in 4 main areas:
If you’re a systems builder, Intel would like to help you grow your business with its Intel Optane technology.
Under Intel’s new Intel Optane Technology Specialty, qualified systems builders can not only learn about the technology, but also enjoy valuable benefits. These include up to $10,000 in marketing funds, pre-sales support, invitations to events, and a cash rebate on all Intel Optane technology gear you bill.
Would you like to expand into or enter for the first time a product line that’s expected to grow 8% a year for the next 5 years?
That’s digital signage. And many of these digital-signage systems are now being powered by Intel NUC Mini PCs. Intel’s small form-factor devices offer several attractive benefits and features:
> Configurable and ready to use
> Can handle multiple displays with 4K resolution
> Remote management via Intel vPro technology (selected models)
How big is digital transformation? Huge.
How huge? How about more than half of all IT spending by 2023?
That’s the latest prediction from market watcher IDC. It expects worldwide spending on digital transformation to nearly double over the next four years, rising from about $1.2 trillion this year to $2.3 trillion in 2023. Assuming that pans out, this would represent a compound average growth rate (CAGR) of 17%.
Looking for more partner power?
Intel has just announced more details about the Intel Partner Alliance. This program has been designed to help you help your customers move, store and process data.
The new Intel Partner Alliance will unify partners into a single program. And if you’re already a member of the Intel Technology Provider program, you’ll be automatically transferred into the new program in the second half of 2020.
IT spending worldwide will rebound next year. Ransomware downtime is now way more expensive than the ransoms themselves. And cloud providers are poised to make their own AI chipsets.
These are the latest insights from leading IT market watchers. And here’s your tech provider’s roundup.
