I am a Windows user from forever i have all versions of Windows from 95 till win 10. So far the only problems i had with Windows is viruses and performance decrease over time.
So i gave xubuntu 16.04 a try i must say it was good to use,fast and snappy, but the thing is that it is too big of compromise for a Windows user who have access to plethora of programs and other thing i am used to Windows .Another problem is that the problem arises too much in xubuntu/Linux and the solution to very is Google search and copy pasting commands in terminal . Yeah windows also have problems but they didn't happens too constantly.
Tl:dr- liked linux but too much used to using windows so can't change nowsubmitted by /u/aakash658
A recent survey by the Uptime Institute of 1,000 IT executives found that 50 percent of senior enterprise IT executives expect the majority of IT workloads to reside off-premise in cloud or colocation sites in the future. Of those surveyed, 23 percent expect the shift to happen next year, and 70 percent expect that shift to occur within the next four years.
I am trying to find some good vendors that have off the shelf products for user management. I really need it for auditing user privileges/access requests.
It would need to be pretty flexible/configurable. I work in a tech company and things are always changing, i.e. adding databases, new server space, networking, web tools/space, user portals, etc.
Ideally this would be an enterprise solution as my firm is growing nad have hundreds of users with multiple requests for privs and employees coming and going. Finally, it needs to have good auditing. My industry is regulated and we'll need to be able to succinctly describe how we control our users/access if we were audited.
Thanks in advance for good recommendations.
Also, to tie this into Linux...I'd prefer a platform which is linux based as well.

Updating code can mean fewer security headaches
Organizations with high rates of code deployments spend half as much time fixing security issues as organizations without such frequent code updates, according to a newly released study.
In its latest annual state-of-the-developer report, Devops software provider Puppet found that by better integrating security objectives into daily work, teams in "high-performing organizations" build more secure systems. The report, which surveyed 4,600 technical professionals worldwide, defines high IT performers as offering on-demand, multiple code deploys per day, with lead times for changes of less than one hour. Puppet has been publishing its annual report for five years.
Over half of world's top domains weak against email spoofing
Over half of the world's most popular online services have misconfigured servers which could place users at risk from spoof emails, researchers have warned.

Startup Snyk Aims to Lockdown Open Source Code in Real Time
Eight months ago, without a lot of fanfare, a startup company called Snyk, with roots in London and Israel, started talking about its unique focus on helping developers keep open source code secure. Specifically, Snyk monitors vulnerabilities and dependencies in open source code and integrates securing open source into common developer workflows. The bottom line is that code vulnerabilities get checked in real-time, rather than getting focused on during official audits.
Now, Snyk is coming out of beta with its tools, and releasing some metrics on how successful it has been at finding probems and patching them.

EU Researchers Are Making a Tool That Fact-Checks Tweets
Back when people were still using the term “Web 2.0,” everyone was excited about Twitter‘s impact on journalism. After all, anyone could use it. Maybe it could crowd-source journalism starting from the exact moment a newsworthy event happened across the globe!
A team of researchers from 7 countries is building an open-source tool to help verify claims on Twitter
Social media newsgathering and verification are no longer novel practices in the newsroom. But even if publishers now have a person or a team of reporters tasked with monitoring conversations on these platforms and verifying their accuracy, there have still been instances of fake rumours or misrepresented facts spreading online when news breaks.
A team of researchers, developers and journalists is hoping to solve this through the EU-funded project Pheme, an open-source dashboard they are currently building to help newsrooms detect, track and verify facts and claims the moment they start spreading on Twitter.

North American Cities Are Slow To Adopt Open Source Software
Government IT departments are often one of the last places that politicians or the general public look to when trying to squeeze more out of the limited public purse. This is not likely intentional. Elected officials and their constituents understand when roads and bridges are in need of repair. But the IT department is often just seen as a bunch of people in a far off building who make desktops work so that employees at the municipality can get their work done.
Python gains functional programming syntax via Coconut
Many Python fans have longed for the language to adopt functional programming features. Now they can get those features without having to switch to a new Python implementation.
Coconut, a newly developed open source dialect of Python, provides new syntax for using features found in functional languages like Haskell and Scala. Programs written in Coconut compile directly to vanilla Python, so they can be run on whatever Python interpreter is already in use.
Open Source NFV Part Four: Open Source MANO
Defined in ETSI ISG NFV architecture, MANO (Management and Network Orchestration) is a layer — a combination of multiple functional entities — that manages and orchestrates the cloud infrastructure, resources and services. It is comprised of, mainly, three different entities — NFV Orchestrator, VNF Manager and Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM). The figure below highlights the MANO part of the ETSI NFV architecture.
After the hype: Where containers make sense for IT organizations
Container software and its related technologies are on fire, winning the hearts and minds of thousands of developers and catching the attention of hundreds of enterprises, as evidenced by the huge number of attendees at this week’s DockerCon 2016 event.
The big tech companies are going all in. Google, IBM, Microsoft and many others were out in full force at DockerCon, scrambling to demonstrate how they’re investing in and supporting containers. Recent surveys indicate that container adoption is surging, with legions of users reporting they’re ready to take the next step and move from testing to production. Such is the popularity of containers that SiliconANGLE founder and theCUBE host John Furrier was prompted to proclaim that, thanks to containers, “DevOps is now mainstream.” That will change the game for those who invest in containers while causing “a world of hurt” for those who have yet to adapt, Furrier said.
Is Apstra SDN? Same idea, different angle
The company’s product, called Apstra Operating System (AOS), takes policies based on the enterprise’s intent and automatically translates them into settings on network devices from multiple vendors. When the IT department wants to add a new component to the data center, AOS is designed to figure out what needed changes would flow from that addition and carry them out.
The distributed OS is vendor-agnostic. It will work with devices from Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Juniper Networks, Cumulus Networks, the Open Compute Project and others.

BlueData Can Run Hadoop on AWS, Leave Data on Premises
We've been watching the Big Data space pick up momentum this year, and Big Data as a Service is one of the most interesting new branches of this trend to follow. In a new development in this space, BlueData, provider of a leading Big-Data-as-a-Service software platform, has announced that the enterprise edition of its BlueData EPIC software will run on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other public clouds.
Essentially, users can now run their cloud and computing applications and services in an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance while keeping data on-premises, which is required for some companies in the European Union.
