The goal of ESG Lab reports is to educate IT professionals about data center technology products for companies of all types and sizes.
ESG Lab reports are not meant to replace the evaluation process that should be conducted before making purchasing decisions, but rather to provide insight into these emerging technologies. Our objective is to go over some of the more valuable feature/functions of products, show how they can be used to solve real customer problems and identify any areas needing improvement.
ESG Lab's expert third party perspective is based on our own hands on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production environments.

Why Cisco Umbrella is the simplest decision you can make to improve your company’s security.
You have to make some serious security decisions when you’re an IT leader. That’s because both the volume and sophistication of attacks are intensifying relentlessly — and it’s clear that conventional defenses alone are no longer adequate. More efective blocking of attackers is particularly important because under-the-radar attacks are wreaking havoc on enterprises that rely on antivirus products, frewalls, and sandboxing alone.
A mere 30 minutes from now, any business can be more secure than it was before. That’s the simple reality of DNS-layer security.
Turnover is a fact of life in the restaurant industry. Studies show that reducing turnover can have a major impact on your restaurant’s profitability but retaining your managers requires an understanding of the problem’s root causes.

The data deluge problem isn’t just about the amount
of internal, operational data being stored, but also the
level of granularity available. The finance and HR teams
of many institutions still operate on outdated systems
that are only able to store aggregate data with complex
details summarized. While these systems may be
sufficient for the purpose of financial reporting, they’re
unable to keep up with the level of complexity needed
to drive business decisions.

Research shows that today’s in-store purchases tend to begin and end online. Even ready-tobuy
consumers research online for nearby stores, go in-store to buy, and often leave a review
about their experience. In turn, those reviews influence the purchasing decisions of your
future customers. This makes it crucial for businesses to have a voice in those conversations,
monitoring and responding to reviews and comments.
Competition is growing fierce for restaurants — and not all of it comes from other
local dining establishments. With grocery stores and meal kit services offering
additional convenient and affordable dining options for customers to choose from,
and with many restaurants turning to faster and smarter automation methods to
power their operations, now is the time for your restaurant to step up its game.
Ultimately, what your restaurant needs to do is offer a complete experience for your
guests. The only way to effectively do this is to understand the whole diner journey
and how the decisions you make along the way affect it.
Today, when you make decisions about information technology (IT) security priorities, you must often strike a careful balance between business risk, impact, and likelihood of incidents, and the costs of prevention or cleanup. Historically, the most well-understood variable in this equation was the methods that hackers used to disrupt or invade the system.

Current methods for accessing complex, distributed information delay decisions and, even worse, provide incomplete insight. This paper details the impact of Unified Information Access (UIA) in improving the agility of information-driven business processes by bridging information silos to unite content and data in one index to power solutions and applications that offer more complete insight.
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
Industry historically has run on the concept of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Companies that had found success with a process or technology were content to maintain their status quo, and it wasn't until they started falling behind their competition that they considered making a change. Digital Transformation changed that, as organizations increasingly embraced technology to push ahead of their competitors and be more proactive in the decisions that impact their business.
Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.
Think you can’t afford flash?
Think again. If you’re looking to make a primary storage investment in the near future, you can’t afford not to consider an
all-flash or converged flash array. HPE offers the only architecture on the market that is flash-optimized without being flash-limited—so you won’t have to make business-limiting decisions when it comes to implementing flash, such as inserting a new silo into your environment or undergoing painful hardware rip-and-replace.
One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.
Big Data is not just a big buzzword. Government agencies have been collecting large amounts of data for some time and analyzing the data collected to one degree or another. Big data is a term that describes high volume, variety and velocity of information that inundates an organization on a regular basis. But it’s not the amount of data that’s important. It’s what organizations do with the data that matters. Big data can be analyzed for insights that lead to better decisions and better services.
