Technology is constantly evolving, and one of the most visible signs of this in 2020 is the advent of widespread 5G mobile networks. These networks provide higher speeds and support for more devices, making it possible for enterprises to deploy Internet of Things (IoT) devices in environments where it would previously have been impossible. However, with 5G comes security concerns. As business traffic moves onto mobile networks, organizations lose visibility and security. A software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) solution provides an organization with the ability to secure these new devices without sacrificing network performance.

Meet Delta Sharing: Access more data with secure, open source data sharing

Article | May 26, 2021

If we’ve learned anything in the past year, it’s how much our progress hinges on the ability to share and collaborate around data.During the pandemic, we watched as scientists from around the world raced to develop COVID-19 vaccines in record time. A process that typically takes 10 to 15 years took less than a year—due in part to global collaboration and data sharing. As we transition to the post-COVID-19 era, the “need for speed has never been greater,” says McKinsey. The organizations that will thrive in this new economy will facilitate collaboration, empower individuals and teams, and build impactful partnerships. That success requires shifting from the traditional “don’t share data unless” mindset to a data-sharing mindset grounded in a solid foundation of technology, data-driven culture, and processes.
