In this digital world, fast and reliable movement of digital
data, including massive sizes over global distances, is
becoming vital to business success across virtually every
industry. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) that has
traditionally been the engine of this data movement, however, has
inherent bottlenecks in performance (Figure 1), especially for
networks with high, round-trip time (RTT) and packet loss, and most
pronounced on high-bandwidth networks. It is well understood that
these inherent “soft” bottlenecks arcaused by TCP’s AdditiveIncrease-Multiplicative-Decrease (AIMD) congestion avoidance
algorithm, which slowly probes the available bandwidth of the
network, increasing the transmission rate until packet loss is detected
and then exponentially reducing the transmission rate. However, it is
less understood that other sources of packet loss, such as losses due
to the physical network media, not associated with network
congestion equally reduce the transmission rate.
While it is easy for marketers to be distracted by the power of data and technology, a new report reminds us what really drives business decisions: feelings.

Collaboration in the enterprise requires a triumvirate of people, process and technology to be successful. With the plethora of collaboration applications available today, both IT professionals and collaboration business users alike need to take a holistic approach to be successful with
collaboration. This paper lets you know about some of the common pitfalls and how to avoid them.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
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.
End-user expectations and high levels of performance against Service Level Agreements (SLAs) must be achieved or organizations risk the loss of business. This paper details key capabilities needed for successful end-user monitoring and provides critical considerations for delivering a successful end-user experience.

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.
Every enterprise is aware of the need for digital transformation. A 2015 study conducted by KPMG found that their top four concerns moving forward were: (1) new entrants disrupting existing business models; (2) the ability to keep current with technology; (3) competitors leveraging digital business models to take share; and (4) products and services remaining relevant as the digital future unfolds.

Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
