Applications are the modern lifeblood of the enterprise, and the desire to keep up with market demands has elevated most enterprise IT strategies from purely on-premises to hybrid and multi-cloud. But the desire to be even more agile and productive—and connect with end users in new and exciting ways—is pushing investments even further into new application environments, development processes, and management tools all leveraging cloud-native technology. In this executive brief, we home in on one component of the cloud-native movement, Kubernetes, and break down its role in achieving enterprise agility, experimentation, and innovation for competitive gain.
"Global professional services firm, Arup, moved from Cisco Cloud Web Security (CWS) to Cisco Umbrella. By implementing a secure internet gateway in conjunction with next-gen endpoint security, Arup secured access to the internet wherever users go, reduced its exposure to malware and improved the ability to detect, respond and remediate when necessary.
-Substantially reduced administrative time
-Accelerated response and remediation process
-Increased performance of cloud applications
-Reduced time to investigate"
• Simplify business process modeling: Quickly build processes in a straightforward cloud-based interface designed for both IT and business users
• Improve process efficiency and accuracy: A central process repository eliminates version control and consistency issues by providing users real-time access to process workflows
• Enhance cross-team collaboration: A shared team workspace engages all business process owners, encouraging cross-team participation and continuous process improvement
Brands are seeing tremendous disruption in the areas of retail, consumer goods, and travel/ hospitality. To stay on pace with the changing needs and demands of these industries, you need to compete and thrive in new ways. Cognitive Enterprise is data-enabled, cloud-powered, transformational business.

Skilled IT teams understand that one cloud does not fit all. Compliance issues may demand that some data be held internally. Budget-imposed total cost of ownership (TCO) limits may push other data out to public clouds. Hence, a scalable multi-cloud infrastructure becomes imperative.
This whitepaper addresses key questions commonly raised by CIOs considering the move to multi-cloud. Further, it sheds light on how Intel® technologies such as the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory can help boost your cloud credentials.
AP automation is often described as low hanging fruit in the
garden of digital transformation. And for a good reason – the
barrier to entry is impressively low in terms of both cost and
effort needed to get up and running, particularly in comparison
to the implementation projects for other business applications.
Despite that fact, the value provided from AP automation is
comparably high. For such an easy implementation, the benefits
reach throughout an organization, beyond the walls of the AP
department, and are near-immediate from day one of using the
Standard benefits include:
- Immediate value from day one with an expected ROI within the first year
- Up to 95% truly touchless invoice processing with access to real-time cloud data for benchmarking and reporting
- Easy access to financial data, such as cash flow & accrual reporting, with full visibility and control of the AP process
This guide will help you kick-start your AP automation project by
defining the 6 steps to build a solid business case and gain the
internal approvals needed to get started.
Only a best-of-breed AP automation solution can offer the high levels of fully automated, touchless, invoice processing that your organization needs to scale your business operations.MediusFlow is the leading cloudbased solution for Dynamics users that automates the entire accounts payable process, enabling increased efficiency, touchless invoice processing as well as better financial visibility and control.

Everything changes. We are in a period of significant shifts in companies—even entire industries—demonstrated in rankings, like the Fortune Global 500. For the last century, these periods
of volatility have been driven by a combination of technological change and capital expansion.1
There is obvious competition between direct, traditional market segments, but digital disruption also opens up the ability to compete and gain revenue in new areas. For example, a movie
streaming service like Netflix also launches a community around the software it created to run
its services, or an online retailer like Amazon also innovates with public cloud management.
Innovation requires more than a slick customer user interface (UI). There has to be a foundation of technology, processes, and culture that allow an organization to be flexible, to build on its
existing knowledge, and to incorporate new ideas.
At a strategic level, today’s software is expected to deliver on a multitude of new and different
Businesses are often challenged with the complexities of protecting their physical, virtual, and cloud workloads while also meeting their part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Shared Responsibility Model.

As more enterprises adopt technologies such as cloud, mobile, and analytics to help achieve strategic competitive advantage, CIOs and IT managers must support business-critical processes at a very high level across the enterprise. At the same time, IT organizations must manage complex hybrid IT infrastructures that include both cloud and on-premises technologies from multiple vendors and support providers. IDC believes that to tackle these challenges, IT organizations should look to support
providers for comprehensive offerings to help optimize IT operations and improve the efficiency of IT service delivery. In addition, IDC recommends that IT organizations looking to manage rapid change in today’s IT landscape consider support providers with a record of innovative support services and a focus on advanced technology in support delivery.

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.

Flexibility is important, since many future initiatives—big data, machine learning, emerging technologies, and new business directions—will be built on this cloud structure.
No matter what shape your cloud infrastructure takes, Dell EMC converged and hyper-converged platforms and innovations like Dell EMC VscaleTM Architecture, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, deliver the pathways to scale-up and scale-out, today and tomorrow.
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).
