Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged.
A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
Forward-looking organizations are looking to next-generation all-flash storage platforms to eliminate storage cost and performance barriers. Advancements in all-flash technology have led to remarkable priceperformance improvements in recent years. The latest all-flash solutions from HPE deliver breakthrough economics, speed and simplicity, while improving availability and data durability. All-flash storage can help you reduce TCO and boost the performance of traditional applications as well as accelerate the rollout of new initiatives like IoT, big data and analytics. But moving data to a new storage architecture introduces a variety of organizational and technical challenges.
Does IT get a lot of questions from users these days? For starters, maybe they want to know why their applications don’t run faster, why they’re having downtime, why their favorite enhancements aren’t top priorities, on and on--why, why, why? Tough questions. You’d love to have the resources to give them positive answers. Of course, that would require beefing up bandwidth and modernizing the network architecture. But the truth is, your paltry budget barely keeps the lights on.
Business evolution and technology advancements during the last decade have driven a sea change in the way data centers are funded, organized, and managed. Enterprises are now focusing on a profound digital transformation which is a continuous adjustment of technology management resources to deliver business results, guided by rapid review of desired outcomes related to end clients, resources, and budget constraints. These IT transitions are very much part of the competitive landscape, and executed correctly, they become competitive differentiators and enable bottom line growth. These outcomes are driving data centers to virtualization, service-oriented architectures, increased cybersecurity, “big data,” and “cloud,” to name a few of the key factors. This is completely rethinking and retooling the way enterprises handle the applications, data, security, and access that constitute their critical IT resources. In essence, cloud is the new IT.
Microsoft has made significant enhancements to the architecture of Microsoft Dynamics® CRM 4.0 to improve network performance. Test results demonstrate network bandwidth utilization improvements of up to 94%. Improvements were evaluated in the number of round trips, bytes sent, and bytes received. Because the bandwidth utilization associated with a page can change after the first time the page is loaded, both initial (cold) and subsequent (warm) page loads were tested.

Given the evolving way Web and Cloud applications are used—and the constantly shifting threat landscape organizations must confront—proxy architecture is more important than ever in terms of securing Internet access. It’s imperative to have effective compliance and company policy enforcement, and the use of a secure web gateway with advanced functionality is a key piece of an enterprise’s security architecture.
Overcoming IT’s operational challenges based on infrastructure complexity is a serious issue.Not only is a piecemeal architecture difficult and inefficient to manage, but it is also very expensive when the Total Cost of Ownership is considered. Reducing that complexity not only frees up personnel but also budgetary resources.
Converged Infrastructure offers the opportunity for organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower TCO. Improved IT efficiency and agility accelerates time to value by a significant margin.

It is now apparent that three specific technology advancements—non-volatile memory express (NVMe), NVMe over fabrics (NVMe-oF), and storage-class memory (SCM)—are transformative and will end up guiding the future of high-end data storage. Each of those technologies reduce I/O latency significantly.
However, organizations working to transform their data centers shouldn’t regard performance as the only end goal. Great performance is important because it increases an array’s ability to handle any workload intelligently, scale to meet unpredictable demand, and operate cost efficiently. The Dell EMC PowerMax powered by Intel® Xeon® processor is an impressive example of this type of modern storage architecture. It has been designed deliberately to maximize the speed of NVMe and by extension, offer transformational efficiency benefits and business value.
Retailers, along with many other vertical industries, seek to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) to improve customer experience management. However, quickly analyzing relevant data to inform decision-making and respond e?ectively to rapidly changing customer behaviors is challenging. The CEMOSoft* platform is designed to create opportunities, while addressing shifting demographics and an evolving IoT landscape. It o?ers a mobile customer engagement experience that can be dynamically modified on the ?y, along with the increased security and intelligence of an Intel® architecture based IoT gateway and Windows® 10 IoT Core. The result is an a?ordable, ?exible, scalable platform that brings ongoing customer insight to many aspects of daily operations
