SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 12, 2022 — Cloudera, the hybrid data company, today announced new hybrid data capabilities that enable organizations to more efficiently move data, metadata, data workloads and data applications across clouds and on premises to optimize for performance, cost and security. Cloudera’s portable data services enable simple, low-risk data workload and data application movement for ultimate data lakehouse optionality.
The company’s new secure data replication simplifies and secures movement of data and metadata, the latest SDX enhancement in Cloudera’s unified data fabric. And Cloudera universal data distribution delivers the first data ingestion solution built for hybrid data. These new capabilities are key to getting control of hybrid data through a data-first strategy. When companies do right by their data, the entire business can access and analyze it without limitations.
“As data continues to grow exponentially, enterprises must identify the critical tools that enable rapid business transformation in an increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud environment,” said Daniel Newman, founding partner and principal analyst at Futurum Research. “Cloudera has a long proven track record for handling large and complex data volumes in even the most highly regulated and compliance intensive industries. With these updates, Cloudera is further advancing its position as a leader for data-first enterprises seeking to leverage AI/ML and hybrid architectures to drive their businesses forward.”
The volume of data businesses collect and store from on-premises, cloud and streaming locations continues to soar. Statista projects the total amount of data generated globally to hit more than 180 zettabytes by 2025. This is the challenge of hybrid data. Adding to the pressure that require organizations to derive insights from their data at an ever-faster pace are economic and market forces. Furthermore, industry experts agree that getting control of data at scale is the only way to drive continuous business transformation with ML and AI. Cloudera’s new data analytics and data management innovations for hybrid data are specifically designed to help organizations manage data at scale across data centers and public clouds, helping make ML and AI business transformation possible.
“Cost or performance is not a choice companies want to make, especially since – as enterprises move to a hybrid, multi-cloud world – these two things are tightly interlinked, ” said Sudhir Menon, Chief Product Officer at Cloudera. “Organizations that choose a data-first strategy can focus on how they deliver value, not just how they spend money. A huge piece of this is the ability to move data and workloads whenever and wherever throughout a modern data architecture to meet evolving business requirements. Cloudera has always provided consistent data security and governance across hybrid cloud, and with these updates will do so between all data services across all infrastructures.”
The new Cloudera data analytics and data management innovations for hybrid data include:
Cloudera believes data can make what is impossible today, possible tomorrow. Cloudera taught the world the value of data, creating an industry and ecosystem powered by the relentless innovation of the open source community. Cloudera empowers its customers, leaders in their industries, to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights. Through Cloudera’s hybrid data platform, organizations are able to build their data-driven future by getting data, no matter where it resides, into the hands of those that need it.
Responding to cybersecurity threats for much of the past 30 years, says former Navy CIO Rob Carey, invariably meant managing a combination of firewall, intrusion detection and identity management tools — and a growing array of data.
The problem, says Carey, now CEO of Cloudera Government Solutions, is that “the tools we use in cyber today…are not necessarily big data platforms that can deal with petabytes at a time, or even more, and still be effective.” That’s forcing CIOs and CISOs to look at that challenge from a different perspective, he says in a new episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast.
“Sometimes you need more money; sometimes you need to stare at the problem differently,” he says.
Carey suggests a smarter approach involves asking the question, “How can I take advantage of big data platforms to enable the cyber security toolset that I have to work better?”
Carey maintains that with AI and ML, it’s possible to look at security threats from a behavioral standpoint, rather than from a signature standpoint. AI and ML have started to demonstrate the ability to “automate some of the decision making so that now the people in the security operations center can focus their human eyes on more complex problems.”
“The larger the network surface area, the more data is coming in,” especially with the Presidential Executive Order on Cybersecurity requiring continuous monitoring, he says. That requires not only capturing more data but enriching it so it algorithms can process it faster. Carey goes on to explain how more advanced data platforms can help CIOs and CISOs identify cyberthreats faster and take more appropriate action to mitigate them.

While TikTok might be all fun and games for users, marketers know better.
This social media channel is full of essential metrics to help brands create more engaging and relevant content for their audiences, so let’s get right to it: TikTok analytics.
Read below to learn what you’re looking for on TikTok’s analytics platform, how to interpret the data you find, and how to use that data to grow your brand’s presence.
The first thing to know is that you must have a business or an influencer account to access TikTok analytics rather than a standard account.
Make the switch to a professional account by:
Tap the Hamburger icon (upper-right)> Settings & Privacy > Manage Account > Switch to a Business Account > Select your business category.
Once you’re set, you can navigate to your analytics by:
Tap the Hamburger (upper-right) > Click Creator Tools > Click Analytics.
When you navigate your analytics page, you will see three different categories at the top of your screen that you can click into for more data: Overview, Content, and Followers.
Like other social analytics platforms, TikTok offers a snapshot of how your content has been performing over a select period and the % increase or decrease since the previous period (shown in blue).
This data includes two significant aspects of your channel:
Additional metrics offered under the Overview tab include:
When you scroll down on that same overview page, you’ll next see that you can click into your “followers” analytics (also found as a tab at the top of your screen, as shown above).
Here you’ll be able to see:
Although the real analytics page might not look like much, we consider this the essential metric TikTok offers (more on this later).
Your analytics page’s “content” tab is a great way to see which content you post is getting the most attention.
You will see this tab broken up into several subsections showing data from the last seven days, including:
Note: If you have more than 1,000 TikTok followers, you are eligible to host Live TikTok videos. With Live videos comes another analytics page for you to see precisely how your live video performed. Learn how to get started with a live TikTok video here.
SocialChamp offers a little hack to help you get another metric that could be useful: total engagement rates.
Just follow one of the below formulas to calculate this number:
Metrics surrounding hashtags aren’t found in the same place as the metrics discussed above. However, it’s still worth analyzing different hashtags in your niche and seeing the number of times a post with a particular hashtag has been viewed.
To find this data, use the Search bar to find a hashtag.
Here, you’ll be able to see the number of views that hashtag has, the top videos that use the hashtag, and related hashtags.
Each section of TikTok analytics provides you with the valuable insight needed to grow your page and influence the right audience. Here are the three main takeaways:
This is low-hanging fruit. See when (the day and time) your followers are engaging on the platform, and that’s when you should aim to post.
Look at which videos people engage with the most through likes, comments, and watch time.
If you find that your funny videos outperform your informative ones, you know what to do!
These metrics should help guide your content creation strategy.
Look at the analytics for popular sounds your audience likes and what hashtags they are using, and start incorporating these into your future videos.
Love it or hate it, TikTok isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Even if your audience isn’t on TikTok yet, we suspect more and more will adopt this platform, just as they eventually did with Instagram.
So, getting a head start on understanding how it works and creating a channel that resonates with and engages your target audience is best. (Remember, you can always repurpose your TikTok content for platforms like Instagram and Facebook!).

Monkeypox virus can be shed into the surrounding environment by people who are infected, particularly in shed skin particles and in debris from monkeypox skin lesions and scabs. The virus is relatively hardy and under appropriate conditions can remain infectious on surfaces for weeks, creating a potential infection risk to others.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) recommends that patients with monkeypox who have severe disease requiring hospital admission are cared for in isolation rooms, with infection prevention and control (IPC) precautions that aim to contain potentially infectious virus within the room and protect staff who enter. However, to date it has been unclear whether these measures are proportionate to the potential virus exposure risks.
To investigate this, researchers from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Medicine and the UKHSA conducted a study which collected samples from the rooms of patients hospitalized with monkeypox. The findings have been published in The Lancet Microbe.
The research team assessed the extent of virus shedding onto surfaces in specialist isolation rooms containing patients admitted to hospital for the management of severe monkeypox. They also investigated whether the virus was detectable in air samples from the rooms.
The researchers found that viral DNA shed by the patients could be found on multiple surfaces throughout the isolation rooms (56 (93%) positive by PCR out of 60 samples). Monkeypox virus DNA was also found on personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by healthcare workers caring for these patients, and in the anterooms where they remove their PPE. Monkeypox virus DNA was also detected in five out of twenty air samples taken within these isolation rooms.
Changing bed linen was an activity particularly associated with detection of monkeypox virus DNA in air samples in the room. This suggests that viral particles, probably in shed skin particles, can become suspended in the air when bed sheets are changed. Monkeypox virus capable of replicating in cells under laboratory conditions (an indicator that the virus could infect other people) was identified in two of four PCR-positive samples selected for virus isolation. This includes air samples collected during the bed linen change.
Lead author, Dr. Susan Gould, from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, says, "Our results found that changing a patient's bedding appears to be particularly associated with an increased ability to detect monkeypox virus in air samples. In 2018, a UK healthcare worker was thought to have developed monkeypox after being exposed to the virus while changing a patient's bedding, before monkeypox had been considered and diagnosed. Our results suggest that changing bed linen used by hospitalized patients with monkeypox does indeed increase the risk of exposure to virus, by disturbing virus on bed linen and allowing it to be suspended in the air."
In addition to detecting virus DNA, the researchers were able to isolate replication-competent virus in some surface and air samples. The results show, for the first time, that monkeypox virus in some air samples taken around patients hospitalized with monkeypox is capable of replicating in cells and is not just 'dead' virus. Dr. Gould says that "these results suggest that monkeypox virus shed into a hospitalized patient's environment poses an infection risk that needs to be managed."
Senior author on the paper, Dr. Jake Dunning, of the University of Oxford's Nuffield Department of Medicine and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, says that "it is important to note that detection of virus, even when demonstrated to be infectious, does not necessarily mean that exposure to the virus in real life would result in infection of the exposed person. However, it does reveal a potential transmission risk and one that is reasonable to control in hospital settings. Our results confirm that the strict IPC measures we follow in specialist infectious diseases centers are necessary and appropriate."
This investigation specifically evaluated exposure risks when caring for patients admitted to specialist facilities in hospitals. The results and recommendations may therefore not apply to other settings, such as outpatient clinics where patients attend for a short time, interactions differ, and the virus is unlikely to accumulate to such an extent. There is no suggestion that transmission of monkeypox virus via aerosols is a common way for the infection to spread from one person to another.
Dr. Gould added that "in the context of ward-based care, our results support infection prevention and control measures designed to protect against exposure to infectious virus on surfaces and in the air, such as appropriate PPE, as well as applying measures designed to contain shed virus within hospitalized patients' isolation rooms, including the use of negative pressure rooms and doffing areas."
The study was led by scientists from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Oxford, as part of the National Institute for Health and Care Research Health Protection Unit in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections, which includes the University of Liverpool as a partner.
The HPRU in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections and UKHSA identified a need for environmental sampling in hospitals managing inpatients with monkeypox and rapidly began investigations. Prior to publication the team shared its results with those caring for patients with monkeypox admitted to hospitals in the UK, and with international partners, infectious diseases specialist networks, and public health organizations.
Dr. Dunning says that "this work demonstrates the ability of HPRUs to conduct rapid, reactive studies to obtain data from novel outbreaks, focussing on research that informs public health guidance and policies, as well as improving patient care."
