With ever-increasing data growth worldwide, organizations must find smarter ways to store and manage their massive volumes of data. Learn how IBM® Tivoli® Storage Management software solutions help to maximize your current storage environment and reduce operational and capital costs while improving service and managing risks.
Storage is at the heart of any data center application. Whether you’re managing hundreds of virtual machine images or millions of records, you need to be able to save, search for, and retrieve that data in the optimal amount of time.
In this White Paper we’ll explore how you can manage your storage needs, optimize storage performance, and do so while saving money at the same time.
Kimpton's success as the #1 boutique hotel company in the United States started with the implementation of the most advanced and reliable converged infrastructure system - VCE Vblock®. Modernizing the data center enabled this top hotel chain to spend less time focusing on managing and supporting infrastructure, and more time serving its ecosystem.
Some of the benefits Kimpton achieved since the deployment of EMC Converged Infrastructure from VCE included a 25 percent
reduction in operating expenses by moving to Vblock Systems, compared with an expected savings of only 10 percent. Kimpton can also stand up virtual machines (VMs) in minutes to capitalize on business opportunities, compared to days or weeks with the old infrastructure.

Financial institutions run on data: collecting it, analyzing it, delivering meaningful insights, and taking action in real time. As data volumes increase, organizations demand a scalable analytics platform that can meet the needs of data scientists and business users alike. However, managing an on-premises analytics environment for a large and diverse user base can become time-consuming, costly, and unwieldy.
Tableau Server on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is helping major Financial Services organizations shift data visualization and analytics workloads to the cloud. The result is fewer hours spent on manual work and more time to ask deeper questions and launch new data analyses, with easily-scalable support for large numbers of users. In this webinar, you’ll hear how one major asset management company made the shift to cloud data visualization with Tableau Server on AWS. Discover lessons learned, best practices tailored to Financial Services organizations, and starting tactics for scalable analytics on the cloud.
It’s time to stop treading water.
Your business runs on applications. But the demands placed on your data center make managing them more and more difficult. Without a simple solution to automate management, scaling, and delivery, you’re sinking fast.
Based on data from more than 200 organizations in Brandon Hall Group’s 2014 Workforce Management Study, this paper reviews the evolution of time and attendance, the impact of automation and integration, and the key role time and attendance solutions play in managing and measuring today’s workforce.
The greatest threat to enterprise data security comes from inside threats. Securing the enterprise requires an understanding of the data leak points, environment, people, and processes for managing sensitive information. This white paper explains how network-based and endpoint-based solutions can work together to provide the broadest protection available while ensuring scalability and manageability, and that employee productivity is not impacted.

This infographic gives a quick visual representation of some of the key findings of a recent Webroot research on web security in the US and UK. As cybercriminals increasingly exploit vulnerabilities in mobile browsers and apps, companies with mobile workforces face new challenges in protecting users and critical data. And the impacts of failing to protect against mobile browsing threats can be severe. The infographic also gives a checklist of things you can do to reduce the risks. Among the key points:
• 50% of companies in the US estimate that web-borne attacks cost from $25,000 to $1 million in 2012.
• 90% of respondents agree that managing the security of remote users is challenging
• 50% of firms with remote workers had a website compromised
Although providing significant business benefits, recent technological advances in mobility, cloud computing and big data have also dramatically complicated the task of managing IT resources. Mitigating the challenges associated with these technologies allows IT organizations to satisfy existing SLAs and leverage technology to support innovative new services which are designed to improve productivity, collaboration and customer satisfaction.

When it comes to the increasingly complex task of managing data storage, many small and midsize organizations face even greater challenges than large, global enterprises.
Small and midsize companies have ever-increasing volumes of information to manage and secure, and they are confronting a number of difficulties when it comes to storage. Among the biggest hurdles:
›› Scaling storage as the business grows rapidly
›› Meeting the rising expense of data storage capacity
›› Dealing with the complexity of management and architecture
›› Devoting precious staff time managing storage and data backup
Whereas larger organizations have significant IT budgets and staff to handle storage-related challenges, small and midsize companies lack the IT resources to dedicate to storage management. Fortunately, there are new approaches to data storage on the market that can help such companies address their data storage needs without requiring dedicated storage management resources, while at the same ti

Data movement and management is a major pain point for organizations operating HPC environments. Whether you are deploying a single cluster, or managing a diverse research facility, you should be taking a data centric approach. As data volumes grow and the cost of compute drops, managing data consumes more of the HPC budget and computational time. The need for Data Centric HPC architectures grows dramatically as research teams pool their resources to purchase more resources and improve overall utilization. Learn more in this white paper about the key considerations when expanding from traditional compute-centric to data-centric HPC.
