While holding the promise of HD quality, enriched services, and the benefits of a common packet switched access infrastructure, the adoption of infrastructure-based voice over LTE (VoLTE), along with rich communications such as video and real-time messaging, has stalled over the last few years with concerns around quality, security, and cost. During that time, the value of the phone number as a globally significant user ID and key services such as SMS and MMS have been relegated by phone manufacturers, over the top (OTT) services, and even the subscribers themselves as “technologies of last resort.” Finally, the proliferation of 4G, together with the emergence of network functions virtualization (NFV), powered by Intel®, Hewlett Packard Enterprise* (HPE), and Metaswitch*, is allowing network operators to take charge of the consumer’s communications experience, once more.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

In the era of big data, enterprise data warehouse (EDW) technology continues to evolve as vendors focus on innovation and advanced features around in-memory, compression, security, and tighter integration with Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud. Forrester identified the 10 most significant EDW software and services providers — Actian, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Pivotal Software, SAP, Snowflake Computing, and Teradata — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help enterprise architect professionals select the right solution to support their data warehouse platform.
The evolution of cloud infrastructures toward hybrid cloud models is inexorable, driven both by the requirement of greater IT agility and by financial pressures. A study by 451 Research reveals that the greatest barrier to cloud migrations is the twin challenges of security and compliance in the hybrid cloud space. Organizations are struggling with practical considerations, which can prevent them from achieving some of the most important and valuable benefits of hybrid cloud deployments.
This report details a number of steps that organizations can take to set themselves squarely on a path to a secure and compliant hybrid cloud.
With many enterprises implementing a hybrid cloud environment to move applications to cloud, IT organizations must establish a decision-making framework for evaluating, deploying, and operating applications in the cloud. Businesses need to be able to deliver applications in the right way and on the right cloud, so IT organizations seek insight into setting policies for the best placement of applications across different cloud options.
In this report, Gartner offers analysis and recommendations for moving traditional apps to private cloud and for brokering and managing apps across different private and public cloud options.
To achieve the full benefits from private cloud deployments for rapid infrastructure provisioning, I&O leaders should look beyond infrastructure to provide enhanced services that support development requirements.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly emerging as a core transformational technology of the digital era. The ability to gather data from sensors embedded throughout an enterprise can drive insights and operational efficiencies from the supply chain to the customer. But IoT and Industrial IoT (IIoT) implementations require high degrees of IT/OT convergence - collaboration and integration between information technology and operational technology groups - to succeed.
These two groups, however, often have different goals, performance metrics, and perspectives on both the collaboration and the outcome. This SAS/HPE-sponsored paper helps readers get a better understanding of the relationship, either real or perceived, between these two groups. Futurum Research surveyed the state of the relationship between IT and OT teams as it pertains to the design, implementation, and creation of value through IoT technologies.
In our 36-criteria evaluation of security analytics (SA) providers, we identified the 11 most significant ones — BAE Systems, E8 Security, Fortinet, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Huntsman Security, IBM, Intel Security, LogRhythm, RSA, Securonix, and Splunk — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report shows how each provider measures up and helps security and risk (S&R) professionals make the right choice.
One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.
So far, most data centers have virtualized their least-critical workloads as a matter of basic cost containment. Virtualizing mission-critical applications is still forthcoming for the majority,though, largely due to infrastructural concerns. Complicating matters is the shift in IT purchasing decisions from IT to business management.
Integrated Computing Platforms (ICPs), private cloud computing, and public cloud services all leverage virtualization to achieve a number of IT and business goals, including increased ROI, reduced OpEx, and business process improvement. Now more than ever, it makes sense to explore the benefits of ICPs.

Delivering high-quality services with greater speed and efficiency is one of the greatest pressures facing your information technology (IT) infrastructure. The rise of computing in the cloud, expansive mobility options, and increasing pressure to boost application performance have added even further complexity - leading to inefficiencies that can limit your opportunity for growth and success. Traditional, siloed IT infrastructures are often too labor intensive, inefficient, and slow to overcome these challenges. Organizations need a converged, cloud-ready, software defined infrastructure to help them meet the evolving demands of their business.
