Network failures are surprisingly common. How can you be sure your enterprise is prepared for unforeseen downtime?
Network diversity and redundancy supports business continuity. Learn more about how the right network portfolio can prevent operational interruptions and assist in disaster recovery.
Business users expect immediate access to data, all the
time and without interruption. But reality does not always
meet expectations. IT leaders must constantly perform
intricate forensic work to unravel the maze of issues that
impact data delivery to applications. This performance
gap between the data and the application creates a
bottleneck that impacts productivity and ultimately
damages a business’ ability to operate effectively.
We term this the “app-data gap.”
IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.
Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the foundation of today’s enterprise security. But most PKI lacks central visibility, consistent processes, and refresh progress validation. This leads to errors and missed system updates that result in policy violations and costly business interruptions. You can solve these issues with a PKI refresh that delivers automated key and certificate security and management.
Together, SAP HANA 2 and the Intel Xeon processor E7 v4 family can drive your business's digital transformation by keeping your data ready for business decision makers, IT administrators, and developers to continually drive business innovation without interruption.

For many years, organizations thought about business continuity in much the same way they thought about business insurance — yes, it was important, but rarely was it top of mind. But that’s all changed. Many organizations have, unfortunately, discovered that even a scant few minutes of service downtime can have deleterious effects on their business operations, resulting in lost revenue, diminished customer confidence and heightened compliance risk.
For those and other reasons, IT executives have raised the bar on business continuity preparedness for their organizations in all ways. New technologies, business processes and partnerships, combined with a raised level of importance for testing and a full appreciation of what virtualization can and can’t do for business continuity, are essential to new thinking around avoiding the impact
of an unplanned service interruption.

Today all businesses battle with unprecedented competitive pressures. In order to succeed—or even survive—
they must rapidly adapt to constantly changing environments, in every industry and sector. What does this
mean for IT leaders? Transformation, on all fronts.
The very factors driving digital transformation in businesses are also pressuring IT organizations to transform.
Customer expectations have increased. Companies live and die by the applications they provide to their customers
and employees. A smartphone is the modern bank branch. The palm of your hand is replacing traditional brick-and-mortar
stores. Access without delay or interruption, 24/7, is the new normal. If they can’t get what they want, when
they want it, customers go elsewhere.

Globally, the demand for power is increasing, driven by a growing population, mass urbanisation, and rapid industrialisation of nations like China and India. The consequence for those in the business of power generation, transmission and distribution is a need to achieve greater productivity and reliability, in a challenging climate of stricter environmental targets, severe penalties for supply interruptions, tighter budgets and tougher operating conditions.
The importance of data processing in today’s business environment is increasing and it is clear that business operations must be secured against every possible contingency to provide continuous uptime. Business continuity is not just concerned with IT infrastructure and data processing, it also includes manual and automatic IT systems with the human involvement. This white paper explains how HP StorageWorks XP for Business Continuity Manager (BCM) Software makes sure that all processes within the data-handling procedures are automated in such a way that in the event of a failure or unplanned disruption, business operations can continue with minimal interruption.
To succeed in a tough marketplace, small businesses must be accessible, without significant interruption, even in the most adverse situations. This kind of ongoing accessibility is an important aspect of business continuity - a critical success strategy that doesn't just happen, but requires proactive planning. Although there are several aspects to a business continuity plan, a major component of any plan should be the SME's communications capabilities, not just its equipment or data. This paper will explore how different kinds of interruptions can adversely affect an SME's business continuity and illustrate how, through advanced features such as resiliency and mobility, Avaya's IP Office can help SMEs overcome interruptions and maintain business continuity.
Businesses of all shapes, sizes and descriptions understand traditional, interruption marketing is now less efficient than ever. This awakening has powered the shift to inbound and content marketing, and the accompanying belief that "content is king."
But here's the problem: If nobody can find the king, and most people distrust the king, are you still the king?
Every data center IT manager must constantly deal with certain practical constraints such as time, complexity, reliability, maintainability, space, compatibility, and money. The challenge is that business application demands on computing technology often don’t cooperate with these constraints.
A day is lost due to a software incompatibility introduced during an upgrade, hours are lost tracing cables to see where they go, money is spent replacing an unexpected hardware failure, and so on. Day in and day out, these sorts of interruptions burden data center productivity.
Sometimes, it’s possible to temporarily improve the situation by upgrading to newer technology. Faster network bandwidth and storage media can reduce the time it takes to make backups. Faster processors — with multiple cores and larger memory address space — make it possible to practically manage virtual machines.
There will be a ransomware attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of 2019 . Every 40 seconds, one of those attacks will prove successful , with devastating effects ranging from permanent loss of irreplaceable data to life-threatening interruptions to patient care. In years past, expert malware authors packaged up their know-how into costly exploit kits sold on the underground market. Cyber criminals had to recover high upfront costs before launching a campaign and realizing a profit. Today, ransomware-as a-service groups like Satan make it easier than ever before for would-be cyber criminals with minimal technical skills to launch attacks, offering free ransomware toolkits and hands-on help to manage campaigns and extort payments. Read our white paper to learn how CylancePROTECT® prevents Petya, Goldeneye, WannaCry, Satan, and many more from executing, with machine learning models dating back to September 2015, long before the ransomware first appeared in the wild.
