Many larger businesses are on a multi-phased journey to the cloud, requiring transition and management services that can adapt to an evolving set of needs. Rackspace Managed Services for Google Cloud Platform is the answer for businesses facing these challenges. As Google’s first Premier Managed Services Partner, Rackspace blends technology and automation plus human expertise to deliver ongoing architecture, security and 24x7x365 operations backed by GCP-certified engineers and architects.
How much selling power are you really getting from your sales teams? Are you making the most out of your CRM investment?
Companies have a universal need for revenue growth, profitability, and customer satisfaction. In hopes to satiate this need, most companies have made significant investments in sales force automation to capture sales data, increase visibility to sales pipeline, and gain business insight to make better business decisions. However, few companies can say they have fully realized the benefits they hoped to achieve from their CRM investment. Additionally, with today’s modern, informed buyer, CRM technologies need to empower sales users with better information that’s easy to find and helps them sell.

In an age where your users demand no-fail experience, continuous testing has become a mission critical component for engineering teams of all sizes. However, while this topic was once discussed at lower levels, the conversation has made it all the way to the C-suite. No matter your industry, if your team isn’t thinking about testing at a high level, then there is a chance that you are missing out on revenue due to flawed app functionality, delayed releases and slowed innovation. It is important to understand the business benefits of continuous testing and automation to avoid these outcomes, and make the changes necessary to set your applications up for success.

If you work in DevOps or software QA, you likely already know why
automated software testing is essential for quality control to keep
pace with continuous delivery. Automated testing delivers faster
results and more thorough coverage, and enables shift-left testing
for earlier detection of bugs.
Yet the issue of how to approach automated testing remains difficult
for many QA teams to solve. A range of obstacles makes it challenging to begin automating software tests, or to increase the extent of test automation beyond the basics.

Dinosaurs are super cool, but there are some places where dinosaurs don’t belong, and one of those is in your fast-paced DevOps environment. We’re in a new world where traditional security solutions no longer make the cut. Software is increasingly complex, and when deployed at the speed of DevOps, it creates a new type of risk: Software Exposure. Legacy application security tools are too big, too slow, and too clunky to deliver the innovation needed to protect your customers in the 21st century.
The Software Exposure Platform from Checkmarx is an entirely new species heralding the next generation of software security. The platform builds security in from the beginning, supporting all stages of the software development lifecycle, allowing enterprises to deliver secure software at the speed of DevOps while mitigating their business risk.

This will appear under the headline in some cases; in other cases, just the long description will appear. Both descriptions should work independently of each other and not be super redundant if possible:
Relying on point products to protect your network is a losing strategy. Having tools than your IT team can handle raises costs, complexity and risk. Deploying enterprise security architecture with control over enforcement, coordination, end-to-end visibility and process automation from a single pane of glass, is the winning approach.
Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.
Digital marketing. You hear it everywhere. As you and all your competitors know, it’s:
A marketing approach that leverages online channels like email, websites, social media, and display advertising to deliver content that influences opinions and sells products and services.
But to effectively execute a digital marketing strategy, you’ll need a marketing automation system that can follow a customer’s lead around the web and offer the best recommendations at the best times to deliver a more relevant "1-to-you" customer experience.

With digital transformation reshaping the modern enterprise, applications represent a new class of assets and an important source of differentiation. The ever-more-competitive digital economy requires that your applications be delivered with unprecedented speed, scale, and agility, which is why more and more organizations are turning to the cloud.

Automation and orchestration systems can help streamline and standardize IT processes across traditional data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. But with rapid innovation come concerns about security and delivering a consistent experience across environments.
