This report covers the complex nature of powering the data center. The drive for improved efficiencies and managing variable IT capacity requirements are top priorities for all data center operators and managers. The intelligent power
chain achieved via the right hardware configuration coupled with intelligence and analytics can provide robust gains in five key areas.
In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come
at a capex premium.

Download this paper to learn the top strategies leading executives are using to take full advantage of the insight they receive from their business intelligence (BI) systems - and turn that insight into a competitive weapon.
Companies today understand there are significant business benefits to modernizing and automating their IT processes. By doing so, they can improve operational efficiencies, boost productivity and agility, reduce costs and — with the resultant savings — invest in new initiatives and innovations to become even more competitive.
But how do you go about transforming IT infrastructure and operations, and how do you measure progress? After all, efforts to harness IT transformation as an engine to drive business transformation have been underway for years and will continue into the foreseeable future.
Fortunately, a ready source of detailed IT transformation insights exists. For nearly a decade, Dell EMC and VMware have helped CIOs define and prioritize the steps needed to transform their IT organizations as part of a series of IT Transformation Workshops with their customers
IT process automation can seem like a big step, but there are incremental ways to achieve improved efficiency that reduce risk and drive better business outcomes. The proper approach to automation can turbocharge your administrative teams, open new doors and provide the agility to respond to any business need. It’s the key to unlocking the power of cloud, and new service offerings make it more attractive to those looking to build the right IT business strategy for the future.
cloud is no longer an option — it’s inevitable. But cloud strategies differ extensively, based on the context of your organization and investments. drivers such as industry, risk tolerance, and preparation dictate the pace, scope, and technologies you need. However, every cloud strategy should share key activities. This report guides infrastructure and operations (i&O) pros through forrester’s cloud maturity assessment so they can gauge where their firms are on their journeys and discover which core competencies they need to strengthen or develop to enable their pragmatic cloud reality.
This is an update of a previously published report; forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

Rehab programs will experience a major infux of medically complex patients, including those with neurological conditions, in the coming decades. The drastic increase is being spurred by an aging population. For instance, stroke prevalence is expected to rise by 21% by 2030, and more than 1.2 million citizens are projected to have Parkinson’s disease.
This leaves rehab leaders with one signifcant question: What can be done to prepare for the increase of medically complex patients? By evolving to meet the needs of this changing population, rehab programs can successfully meet the challenge, providing patients with the highest level of care while achieving greater performance standards.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the three areas that drive the greatest impact on treating medically complex patients: • Clinical staff • Tech innovation • Patient and family member experience
Research has demonstrated enhanced technology can improve communication between patients, families and care providers, improve motivation, and has the potential to effect better outcomes and higher levels of patient satisfaction. Additionally, better technology also makes the workplace more appealing to employees.
With the investment and complexity involved, how can health systems utilize technology in the most efficient and effective ways to drive business results?

As businesses are driven to digital transformation by changing market forces and customer expectations, many are looking to new technologies, including new infrastructure environments, as enablers. As a result, we are seeing a near-universal appetite for hybrid outcomes as business functions are executed across multiple on-premises and external infrastructure environments in pursuit of agility, cost, performance and other business benefits. Hybrid IT has become a key strategic imperative for a large portion of enterprises, impacting their IT objectives and expectations, and likely leading to new engagements with service provides for help designing, building and operating hybrid environments.
Research shows that legacy ERP 1.0 systems were not designed for usability and insight. More than three quarters of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans 1. These systems lack modern best-practice capabilities needed to compete and grow. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”.
Oracle’s goal is to help you navigate your own journey to modernization by sharing the knowledge we’ve gained working with many thousands of customers using both legacy and modern ERP systems. To that end, we’ve crafted this handbook outlining the fundamental characteristics that define modern ERP.

Over 6,500 publicly disclosed data breaches occurred in 2018 alone, exposing over 5 billion records—a large majority of which included usernames and passwords.1 This wasn’t new to 2018 though, as evidenced by
the existence of an online, searchable database of 8 billion username and password combinations that have been stolen over the years (https://haveibeenpwned.com/), keeping in mind there are only 4.3 billion people worldwide that have internet access.
These credentials aren’t stolen just for fun—they are the leading attack type for causing a data breach. And the driving force behind the majority of credential attacks are bots—malicious ones—because they enable cybercriminals to achieve scale. That’s why prioritizing secure access and bot protection needs to be part of every organ

Authentication is evolving from static one-time user action, to transparent and continuous ways of validating digital identities without imposing frustration on end users. Behavioral biometrics technologies invisibly and unobtrusively authenticate users by validating the manner in which they physically interact online. Behavioral biometrics technologies learn how individual users hold mobile devices in their hands and press their fingers on the touchscreen. On computers, the system learns how users type on keyboards and move their mouse and cursor. The BehavioSec solution gathers this behavioral data and analyzes it using advanced techniques, to ensure that the user is who you expect them to be.
