To meet future demands, businesses need to take advantage of multicloud technology without replacing your current storage, yet ensure that it is fast, cost-efficient, scalable, and modern.
The right storage solution can help businesses to respond rapidly, expand capacity, and lower costs. This infographic looks at how businesses can modernise their infrastructure by investing in the next generation of IBM Storwize V7000, which is easy to scale, deploys faster and accelerates business execution with end-to-end NVMe.
Organizations continue to rush down the digital transformation path. Whether by modernizing their IT infrastructures, leveraging the cloud, or becoming data-centric and data-driven, organizations must become more agile in their business practices and within their IT infrastructure stack to effectively compete in today’s dynamic business environment. Between the speed and distributed nature of modern businesses, as well as the expectation of instantaneous access to data from everyday users, it’s not surprising that nearly one in three organizations are looking into ways to improve data analytics for real-time business intelligence and customer insight.
Welcome to Secure Hybrid Cloud For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition. The hybrid cloud is becoming the way enterprises are transforming their organizations to meet changing customer requirements. Businesses are discovering that in order to support the needs of customers, there is an imperative to leverage the highly secure IBM Z platform to support missioncritical workloads, such as transaction management applications. The Z platform has been transformed over the years. The combination of z/OS, LinuxONE, open APIs, and the inclusion of Kubernetes has made IBM Z a critical partner in the hybrid cloud world. Businesses can transform their IBM Z environments into a secure, private cloud. In addition, through IBM’s public cloud, businesses may take advantage of IBM Z’s security services to protect their data and applications.
Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc

With increased adoption, cloud footprints are getting larger and more unwieldy to manage. Organizations know they must analyze and consolidate their cloud bills to stop cloud waste eating into OpEx budgets. Extensive cloud adoption driven by a “cloud-first” mandate isn’t inherently sprawl, but do you know the business initiatives that spend is supporting? What alternatives did you consider? How is spend tracking?
Download this guide to stop cloud sprawl from undercutting your IT strategy.
Transforming your firm doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, patience and planning. However, the value of moving away from the old, transaction-based way of doing business and into a more modern model is immense.

As organizations continue to look for ways to increase business agility, a need for a modern database architecture that can rapidly respond to the needs of business is more apparent than ever. While an RDBMS still serves as a lifeline for many organizations, the adoption of technologies such as NoSQL and Hadoop are enabling organizations to best address database performance and scalability requirements while also satisfying the goals of embracing hybrid cloud and becoming more data-driven. And with organizations relying so heavily on these new technologies to yield rapid insights that positively impact the business, the need to evaluate how those new technologies are managed and protected is essential. Hadoop and NoSQL workloads are now pervasive in production environments and require “production-class” data protection, yet few data protection solutions offer such capabilities today.

If you are considering the right deployment model for your contact center, economic guidelines can help you choose the solution that is best for your company. Cloud, on-premises or hybrid.
Just a few years ago, businesses were still unsure of the viability of moving their contact centers and other critical enterprise systems to the cloud. Since then, with the decrease of cloud costs, and the corresponding increase in security and, the viability and total cost of ownership of cloud deployments are attracting more and more companies.
This eBook will cover how different criteria can affect a choice between a cloud or on-premises contact center, including:
• The size of your contact center, and business requirements such as customer journey management
• The location and quantity of contact centers being managed
• The need for scalability, speed of deployment, and maintenance requirements

Just like your business, technology never stops advancing. Each year, there are new ways that technology can automate processes, lower costs, and enhance customer and employee satisfaction - all with the goal of increasing revenue! And while it can be difficult to change how your business works, leaving old methods behind and embracing new technology can help lead your business to more success and growth.
The technology landscape in the financial services sector is vast, ranging from cutting-edge to mission-critical, each having an impact on the industry as a whole. Customer-facing services and back-end operations alike are seeing real benefits from innovation, including greater efficiencies and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
The rate at which technology is evolving is increasing almost exponentially. In the business sector, hardware has given way to software-defined everything, while many on-premises technologies are now offered as a service. Much of the advances in technology over the last few years have been the direct result of the growing ubiquity of the cloud and faster connectivity speeds, both of which have enabled companies to adopt digital transformation technologies to help them work smarter and more efficiently.
Companies across the globe are all facing the same economic headwinds: business change in the form of competitive threats and new opportunities is coming at an unprecedented pace. The watchword for meeting these challenges is innovation – both in terms of business processes as well as the underlying technology that enables those processes.
The sum of the experiences discussed in this report showcase how SAP S/4HANA, running on-premise or in the cloud, can form the basis for a broad-based business transformation that does not require a big bang implementation to succeed.
Why your data catalog won’t deliver significant ROI
According to Gartner, organizations that provide access to a curated catalog of internal and external data assets will derive twice as much business value from their analytics investments by 2020 than those that do not.
That’s a ringing endorsement of data catalogs, and a growing number of enterprises seem to agree. In fact, the global data catalog market is expected to grow from US$210.0 million in 2017 to US$620.0 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.2%.
Why such large and intensifying demand for data catalogs? The primary driver is that many organizations are working to modernize their data platforms with data lakes, cloud-based data warehouses, advanced analytics and various SaaS applications in order to grow profitable digital initiatives. To support these digital initiatives and other business imperatives, organizations need more reliable, faster access to their data.
However, modernizing data plat
