I am currently researching two features for Computer Weekly, details below:
The popularity of some enterprise SaaS products means that the world of enterprise software is now more complex than ever, with data not only residing across different enterprise systems – but, increasingly, data is held in different cloud-based systems.
In this piece we will speak to organisations that use more than one SaaS product or suite, and look at why and how they chose different systems, how they connect them, how they manage date across suites and how their businesses benefit.
Deadline for leads: 1700hrs, 21 July. Deadline for interviews: 1700hrs, 27th July.
Anti-ransomware functionality in storage products
In this piece we will look at what storage vendors are doing to build ransomware protection into their offerings.
This includes tools such as immutable backups or snapshots, as well as ransomware prevention through techniques such as anomaly detection.
Note that this article is focused on the capabilities for the leading 7 vendors in the market, (see this list), though independent analyst comment is welcome.
Deadline for all input, for leads: 1700hrs, 26 July.
Please email with your suggestions/leads, keeping in mind the different deadlines. Also, it will be a great help to keep pitches for the two pieces separate.
