The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
In the past decade, information technology has evolved from an enabler of back-office business process to the very foundation of a modern business.

Speed is increasingly becoming the most important factor in project execution for a modern business. Of course, it has always been important to deliver projects as quickly as possible—that’s why schedules were developed and managed to. But historically those schedules were usually rather arbitrary. Today, things are very different. Customers expect more functionality more quickly than ever before, and they are unwilling to tolerate delays or missed commitments.
Organizations have recognized the importance of minimizing time to delivery, seeking to leverage opportunities and solve challenges in as little time as possible, but in doing so they have frequently forgotten one critical aspect. They aren’t actively managing those time horizons—they are simply careening headlong toward the end goal. That can introduce significant problems, and that’s what we want to look at in this white paper.
VMware surveyed approximately 200 senior IT leaders at enterprise, commercial, and SMB organizations worldwide to shed light on the evolving role of IT.

For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.

Email. It’s the number-one business application used by organizations. It’s also the number-one method used to execute cyberattacks, enabling malware delivery, phishing, impersonations, and the spread of threats that are already internal to your organization. In fact, 91 percent of all cyberattacks start with an email. And your organization can’t function for long without email. How many hours of email downtime can your organization comfortably live with? If email isn’t accessible due to an adverse incident like malicious intent, human error or technical failure, your organization would likely suffer.
The only way to get ahead of cybercriminals and to holistically protect your business is to adopt a new approach to email security. You need a multidimensional approach that brings together threat protection, adaptability, durability and recoverability in a single cloud-based service. You need to enable these four dimensions to truly provide cyber resilience for your email.
The enhanced performance that results from the DevOps approach has been proven to have a big impact on the overall performance of the business, with faster, more reliable software delivery, consequent cost savings, and faster time to value. Now that cloud is an integral element of the enterprise, automation of cloud management is key, and feeds into the DevOps approach. VMware offers your IT organization the opportunity to become DevOps-ready, using the GUI and API-led approach to enable an automated self-service infrastructure.
How do you replicate the speed and flexibility of the public cloud within your own IT team? This white paper will show you how automation can help to accelerate IT service delivery and improve time to market.
