In December 2017, Dell commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a study to determine how enterprise organizations are structured from an IT departmental perspective. The study explored two types of IT: digital controllers and digital transformers; and the trends and challenges seen in PC provisioning. Digital controllers are often associated with top-down approach, linear structure, and emphasize security and accuracy. In contrast, digital transformers focus on innovation, employee-and customer-centricity, and prioritize speed and flexibility. By understanding the two groups, enterprises can overcome challenges that arise from PC life-cycle management. By investing in existing PC management tools and partnering with a company that specializes in PC deployment and management, firms can empower employees to better serve customers

Enterprises currently face challenges regarding
the price, performance, and flexibility of traditional
wide area networks (WANs). Aggressive growth in
the adoption of public cloud services (a projected
86% spike between 2014 and 2018)1
organizations to look elsewhere for a more effective
network solution to address distributed traffic across
remote sites and branch offices.
Some of the specific issues organizations face with
their traditional WANs include:
- High total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Lengthy provisioning cycles
- Performance degradation with the growth of cloud
- Inadequate redundancy and resiliency
- Lack of application-aware connectivity
To better manage WAN investments, enterprises are
adopting a new approach for their distributed branch
office networks. Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN)
offers improved performance, agility, and operational
flexibility plus significant cost savings. But not all SDWAN
solutions are created equal.
Enterprise PC Buying Patterns Are Changing As Buyers Look To Improve Both Security And The Employee Experience At Once
As employee mobility increases globally and enterprise investments shift to tablets and laptops, organizations are assessing their ongoing investment in traditional PCs. One thing that remains clear is that enterprise PC buyers still value the security and performance offered by fixed computing solutions. They also say that new form factors like the micro PC help them deliver a better experience to employees, which they value at least as much as security.

Today, hybrid cloud is increasingly the norm, and enterprises are challenged with ways to have visibility, manage and make use of all this data – both on-premises and in the cloud. While much attention has been given to primary data affecting mission-critical workloads, data for secondary workloads – backup, test/dev, disaster recovery, and archiving to name a few – have become siloed the same way application data has, leading to multiple point solutions to manage an increasing amount of data.
This white paper looks at the evolution of these challenges and offers practical advice on ways to store, manage and move secondary data in hybrid cloud architectures while extracting the hidden value it can provide. Download to learn more.

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how t

To best support global users and customers, enterprises require seamlessly connectivity between branch office locations, applications, and workloads hosted in the
cloud. Many WAN solutions are ill-equipped for this task because they are generally rigid, complex to configure, and expensive to maintain.
IoT adoption, a dramatic increase of the number of network devices, and the sophistication of security threats further compounds this challenge. Geographically-distributed devices need secure cloud connectivity, limiting the ability of existing WAN solutions to fulfill the need of distributed organizations.
Cisco SD-WAN on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an overlay WAN architecture that is designed to address modern enterprise cloud applications and workloads, heterogeneous WAN connectivity, distributed global workforces, and other business needs that traditional WAN solutions cannot meet.

Enterprises and the threats that target them have all fundamentally evolved over the past decade. In response, the security industry has generated an enormous amount of point solutions and technologies to try and keep pace. However, for all of this innovation and change, the underlying enforcement architecture has remained largely unchanged.
A new modern approach to preempting threats is required. One that augments the existing architecture instead of replaces it. This new approach brings full enterprise and business context to real-time enforcement decisions. Identity, behavior, devices, anomalies, and risk all play a real-time role. Just as importantly, enforcement and access options can be graded based on the risk to the business, and policies can actively seek out and adapt to new information.
As digitization drives business at ever-faster speeds, CFOs recognize the need to keep pace. They understand the importance of financial planning and analysis (FP&A) solutions that allow their finance teams to develop budgets and forecasts quickly and accurately. They need confidence in their numbers and the decisions they drive. But selecting the right FP&A software is only half the battle.
VPNs were created for the networks and business environment of yesterday: Most employees worked in an office, devices were limited, enterprise architecture was far less complex, and attacks, in general, were considerably less sophisticated and frequent.
What worked 20 years ago cannot be trusted today. Your VPN is cumbersome and time consuming from a management and performance perspective. But what you might not want to concede is that VPNs, by their very nature, pose a significant threat to enterprise security.

CA Privileged Access Manager protects an organization’s business and empowers its people. The solution protects critical accounts and endpoints while providing a seamless user experience.
CA commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and objectively examine the potential return on investment (ROI) and enterprises may realize by deploying its Privileged Access Manager solution. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of the CA Privileged Access Manager solution on their organizations.
The misuse or takeover of privileged accounts constitutes the most common source of breaches today. CA Threat Analytics for PAM provides a continuous, intelligent monitoring capability that helps enterprises detect and stop hackers and malicious insiders before they cause damage.
The software integrates a powerful set of user behavior analytics and machine learning algorithms with the trusted controls provided by CA Privileged Access Manager (CA PAM). The result is a solution that continuously analyzes the activity of individual users, accurately detects malicious and high-risk activities and automatically triggers mitigating controls to limit damage to the enterprise.
Complete enterprise security requires coordination. Firms must integrate the technologies and data that come from the endpoint and network
layers to make accurate decisions that ensure optimal threat detection, containment, and remediation. Unfortunately, too many firms rely on a
huge variety of solutions that require manual integration and correlation, leading to wasted time and poor threat detection. Security leaders
must automate these processes to eliminate detection lag and improve prevention efforts.
The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

Today’s workforce has grown accustomed to using personal technologies that make communication easy and simplify their lives. But many enterprise tools haven’t kept pace. Most current project and portfolio management solutions fail to provide simple ways of performing everyday tasks. They don’t facilitate contextual communication that would help to solve problems, and they lack key functionality: the ability to narrow the focus to relevant data, to drill down for additional information and to efficiently forecast financials and model outcomes.
