There’s no denying that hyperconverged infrastructure is hot right now, promising to dramatically shift the way infrastructure is procured, deployed and managed. But questions remain. Is it actually addressing the real-world concerns faced by real-world customers? What are the catalysts driving organizations to evaluate hyperconvergence and are they finding that the results match the hype when they actually do deploy?
Get the fast facts from this SimpliVity eBook based on research from ActualTech Media, segmented and re-analyzed just for EMEA.
"Flash has permeated enterprise storage in small, medium-sized, and large enterprises as well as
among webscale customers like cloud and service providers. It is available in a variety of different
system architectures, including internal storage, hyperconverged and converged platforms, and shared
storage arrays. Revenue driven by shared storage arrays, of both the hybrid flash array (HFA) and the
all-flash array (AFA) type, is much larger than from other segments today and will continue to dominate
enterprise storage spend through at least 2020."
Discover the transformational power of intelligent storage. A company’s competitive success depends greatly on how well it harnesses the value of its data. However, it can be challenging to keep pace with the increases in the scale of data being generated, as well as users’ demands for accessibility. Additionally, maximizing the value of digital information requires data to be leveraged at both the optimal time and the optimal place. With HPE’s intelligent storage portfolio, organizations can modernize their IT to better understand their customers, run more agile IT functions, and improve logistical operations.
Heutzutage zählen die Identität der Kunden und die damit verbundenen persönlichen Daten zu den wichtigsten und wertvollsten Ressourcen jedes Unternehmens. Die Verwaltung dieser digitalen Identitäten (von der ersten Registrierung und Anmeldung bis zu den späteren Phasen der Kundenbeziehung) und die Verwertung der dazugehörigen Daten sind komplexe Aufgaben, die häufig als CIAM (Customer Identity and Access Management) bezeichnet werden.
Wenn Unternehmen ein System zur Erfassung, Verwaltung und Nutzung von Daten zu digitalen Identitäten und Kunden implementieren, haben sie grundsätzlich zwei Möglichkeiten: Sie können ein eigenes Produkt entwickeln oder eine dedizierte Lösung von einem auf CIAM spezialisierten Anbieter kaufen.
In diesem Whitepaper finden Sie eine detaillierte Analyse der CIAM-Implementierungsoptionen, darunter Folgendes:
? die wichtigsten Voraussetzungen für ein erfolgreiches CIAM-System für Unternehmen

PKI is becoming a critical underpinning to help organizations succeed as they roll out new digital business models. Establishing a trusted infrastructure through PKI will help businesses take smart risks, evolve quickly and manage relationships with customers, partners, vendors and employees more effectively.
Certificate management is a crucial part of a robust PKI implementation, ensuring visibility and adherence to policy throughout the certificate lifecycle: from identity vetting, to issuance, to renewal to revocation. As Gartner noted in its recent report, “PKI is Gearing Up for the Internet of Things”
The advantages blockchain can bring to the automotive ecosystem, both in facilitating
collaboration among participants and enabling capabilities for new mobility business
models, have gotten the attention of automotive executives. In addition to enabling a
single source of data, blockchain can facilitate device-to-device transactions, smart
contracts, and real-time processing and settlement. For the automotive industry, this
translates into improvements and operational efficiencies in areas such as supply chain
transparency, financial transactions between ecosystem participants, authenticating
access to cars, and customer experience and loyalty.
Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.

IBM rarely, if ever publicly, talks about the future of IBM Z. When IBM's sales managers have a oneon-one client conversation (under NDA), they might inform the customer about the next processor, but the company rarely talks about the mid- to long-term future publicly. An obvious reason for this is not to disrupt sales, but at the same time, IBM believes that it is sometimes working on problems that the market might not know it has yet. IBM felt that it was doing a disservice to its current and future customers by not being more open, which is why Tarun Chopra, director, Product Management for IBM Systems, and Ross Mauri, general manager, IBM Z, agreed to talk to IDC about the future of IBM Z. In these conversations, IBM was not putting a date on any of the topics it was willing to discuss. But the company was willing to talk about where it is investing R&D dollars and skills.
Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc
Databases represent the backbone of most organizations. And Oracle databases in particular have become the mainstream data repository for most mission-critical environments. Some of the largest companies and organizations in the world rely on Oracle databases to store their most important data. The biggest challenge organizations face relative to an Oracle database is to maintain these databases at optimum performance and reliability without breaking the bank. This paper discusses the storage capabilities customers should consider when choosing storage to support an Oracle database environment.

Customer experience drives the success of your
organization. Awesome systems for onboarding
customers and supporting them can certainly establish
an initial relationship, but what happens when something
goes wrong or the systems in place get in the way of
helping the customer?
Omnichannel is one of those words everyone
uses, but few use correctly. It’s not another word for
multichannel. It’s a different state of existence.
In our experience, multichannel is the ability to interact
with customers across many different channels, but
not necessarily in a cohesive fashion. As new channels
become available, they are “bolted on” to existing
customer experience infrastructure such as CRM
or customer support systems. Too frequently, the
management of these channels becomes siloed (web
versus in-store sales, for example). The effect of this from
the customer experience standpoint can be disjointed
and jarring. For example, the resolution of an issue
following a customer conversation with an associate
in the contact center may not be reflected when the
customer goes online or into a store.
Yet the ability to offer multichannel service experience is
table stakes for today’s business. If you’re not available in
the channels where customers want you to be, you cease
By the time most customers reach a human employee with a question, chances are they have

Because front-line jobs are becoming more complex, employees need to be tactical, technical, and
ready to emotionally handle these new types of interactions.

and technology to create more sophisticated employees. Below are some key highlights from
One of the most significant areas of opportunity for contact center leaders to cut costs is to
