A greater dependence on cloud-based applications means businesses must rethink the level of redundancy of the physical infrastructure equipment (power, cooling, networking) remaining
on-premise, at the “Edge”.
The need to bridge the gap between traditional IT services and cloud application delivery is vital. This HPE Pointnext blueprint guide examines the critical global business services and IT technology best practices for enabling cloud-native applications—from DevOps practices to underlying infrastructure. The blueprint helps IT teams accelerate the development and delivery of cloud-native applications.

Businesses are struggling with numerous variables to determine what their stance should be
regarding artificial intelligence (AI) applications that deliver new insights using deep learning.
The business opportunities are exceptionally promising. Not acting could potentially be a
business disaster as competitors gain a wealth of previously unavailable data to grow their
customer base. Most organizations are aware of the challenge, and their lines of business
(LOBs), IT staff, data scientists, and developers are working to define an AI strategy.
IDC believes that this emerging environment is to date still highly undefined, even as
businesses must make critical decisions. Should businesses develop in-house or use VARs,
systems integrators, or consultants? Should they deploy on-premise, in the cloud, or in some
hybrid form? Can they use existing infrastructure, or do AI applications and deep learning
require new servers with new capabilities? We believe that many of these questions can be
Digital transformation is not a buzzword. IT has moved from the back office to the front office in nearly
every aspect of business operations, driven by what IDC calls the 3rd Platform of compute with mobile,
social business, cloud, and big data analytics as the pillars. In this new environment, business leaders
are facing the challenge of lifting their organization to new levels of competitive capability, that of
digital transformation — leveraging digital technologies together with organizational, operational, and
business model innovation to develop new growth strategies. One such challenge is helping the
business efficiently reap value from big data and avoid being taken out by a competitor or disruptor
that figures out new opportunities from big data analytics before the business does.
From an IT perspective, there is a fairly straightforward sequence of applications that businesses can
adopt over time that will help put direction into this journey. IDC outlines this sequence to e

Le changement n'est jamais facile, surtout lorsqu'il concerne les applications de gestion. Les responsables informatiques savent cependant que passer au cloud permet de gagner en efficacité et en rapidité et de réaliser d'importantes économies.
Mais en quoi les applications Cloud sont-elles si différentes de celles conçues à partir d'une architecture traditionnelle ou hybride ?
Consultez ce livre Blanc de CIO.com pour découvrir les différentes architectures cloud, la façon dont elles influencent les capacités et les performances des applications et ce que cela induit en terme de migration depuis les systèmes actuels.
Microsoft® Office 365™ continues to lengthen its lead as the world’s top enterprise cloud service. Nearly one-in-four employees in Fortune 500 companies are active on Office 365 — and more than 90% of those large enterprises currently have more than 100 active users. Users are clearly becoming more reliant on Office 365, as usage grew at a rate of more than 300% in 2016.
Encryption technology has enabled much greater privacy and security for enterprises that use the Internet to communicate and transact business online. Mobile, cloud and web applications rely on well-implemented encryption mechanisms, using keys and certificates to ensure security and trust. However, businesses are not the only ones to benefit from encryption.
These are no longer capitally strained organizations building an application on a one-off basis, with the cloud this is enterprise transition, this is enterprise applications being shifted to the cloud, new applications being developed in the cloud, and this requires a completely new way of building and consuming IT services for the enterprise.

IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
With cloud, mobile and all the new tools & frameworks that come with them, application development has never been so easy – or so hard.

Most companies would love to move enterprise applications

and limitations of current infrastructure.
Major public cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS),
Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud have done well in enabling

cloud-native applications designed to use cloud “object” storage,
and object storage is very popular for use cases such as backup
and disaster recovery. However, enterprise applications typically
require “block” storage. Although native cloud block storage
exists, it has several shortcomings, particularly around reliability,
durability, and lack of data mobility. So, enterprise applications
have largely stayed on-premises or in private clouds.
Now there’s an innovative new way to move enterprise applications
to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and tradeoffs.
It’s called multicloud storage, and it’s an insanely simple,
