While Oracle Hyperion remains a market leader in EPM software, that role comes with a hefty price tag and poses some hidden risks that have companies that use it re-evaluating their planning, budgeting, and consolidation needs. Whether used individually or together as an EPM suite, Hyperion Financial Management (HFM) and Hyperion Planning burden finance departments with a high cost of ownership, from server costs and consultants to dealing with the complex integration between products and the different interfaces.
As Oracle Hyperion users start to evaluate the cloud, they need to be aware of how benefits of the cloud-based EPM solution compare to on-premises software. We’ve compiled this information to a) help you better understand the full costs and potential risks associated with Oracle Hyperion and b) offer guidance as you evaluate cloud-based options.

Many enterprises have
VMware tools into their
environments and are now
looking to reap the benefits of
the cloud. But this migration
isn’t as easy as flipping a
switch, especially if you’re
looking to continue running
your VMware environment.
The ability to utilize your
existing VMware tools on
an AWS platform can result
in a more cost-effective,
simplified cloud experience,
allowing organizations to
begin their cloud journey by
moving workloads closer to
native cloud services. In this
document, we will review
ideal use cases for VMware

Meanwhile, those same demanding business leaders lack
appreciation and patience for the complexity of today’s digital
technology environment. While applications and user experiences
are simpler and more intuitive, the backend processing, application
interdependencies, and underlying infrastructure are more complex
than ever, even in light of the benefits of abstraction, virtualization,
and cloud computing (see Figure 1.)
While CIOs have long been expected to improve stability and uptime

Distributed cloud architectures will play an important role in Communication Service Providers’ network transformations. The distributed cloud will be made of numerous edge locations, from the customer premises to mobile base stations to central offices, each of which has its benefits and constraints. CSPs will need to consider attributes such as performance, availability, security, integration, and data and traffic volume to optimize the infrastructure for a myriad of workloads. Learn more about Heavy Reading’s survey results on CSPs adopting a distributed cloud strategy and delivering new services in this white paper.

We know that flash storage can provide significant benefits and deliver needed agility for large businesses, but what about medium-sized businesses (MMB = 500 to 999 employees)?
IBM asked Forrester Consulting to look into adoption and use of flash storage technologies by mid-market organizations. A snapshot survey of 106 IT professionals found the following:
› MMBs are actively adopting flash storage
› Flash is exceeding expectations regarding cloud management, flexibility and security
› A majority of respondents expect to continue their investments, with almost half aspiring to an all-flash storage environment.

For many enterprises, cloud migration is attractive for two key reasons: greater agility and lower cost. However, the jury is still out when it comes to the financial benefits. In this webinar, KPMG’s Adrian Bradley, Head of Technology Architecture, and Emma Bisset, Senior Manager, CIO Advisory at KPMG UK, explore the reasons why.
Listen to this webinar now to find out:
• What leading IT decision makers told KPMG about their experience of cloud costs
• Why organisations are failing to realise economic value from their cloud investments
• What key levers your organisation can use to extract significant cost savings from existing deployments.
Organizations are increasingly adopting a hybrid cloud computing strategy to realize the benefits without compromising on security and control. The integration at the network, infrastructure, and process layers that is required by hybrid models can be addressed by three new cloud-focused solution types: bridges, brokers, and gateways. This paper gives you the insight you need to better understand which architectural approach will meet your requirements and expectations.
