Typically the data center is either close to inexpensive power, or located in a facility that is off campus somewhere not necessarily convenient to those administering and using it. This brief explores remote power management as a way of ensuring that your data center works for you and not the other way around.

Backup and recovery needs a radical rethink. When today’s incumbent solutions were designed over a decade ago, IT environments were exploding, heterogeneity was increasing, and backup was the protection of last resort. The goal was to provide a low cost insurance policy for data, and to support this increasingly complex multi-tier, heterogeneous environment. The answer was to patch together backup and recovery solutions under a common vendor management framework and to minimize costs by moving data across the infrastructure or media.

Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.

Companies across the world are innovating with artificial intelligence (AI) to improve customer experience and forge deeper relationships with customers. Through surveys and interviews with 599 executives, from large and mid-sized companies across the globe, this MIT report reveals that most customer-centric firms have already deployed AI extensively in their customer-facing operations and customer experience management processes.
Get the global report and regional spotlights on North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia to access complete results. Key insights include:
• Nearly 90% of respondents report measurable improvements in the speed of complaint resolution; 80% note enhanced call volume processing using AI
• 80% of respondents report measurable improvements in customer satisfaction, service delivery and contact center performance
• In North America, 60% of the respondents believe they will deliver a 10% or more increase in customer lifetime value in the next year

ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management. This is all done in parallel with physical systems management.
Because business success is tightly fused with technology, IT costs are rising, and this trend is expected to continue. As a result, businesses are demanding that IT be more than a static resource. IT is expected to deliver business results with a measurable contribution to the organization's bottom line.
Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
A recent survey of CIOs found that over 75% want to develop an overall information strategy in the next three years, yet over 85% are not close to implementing an enterprise-wide content management strategy.
