With digital transformation accelerating
across every industry, practically every
modern business initiative has become
an IT project, and IT is now more crucial
to the success of the business than ever
before. Businesses must bring innovative products and services to market faster than their competitors, which, in turn, means that IT must rapidly and continuously deliver applications and services that drive productivity and efficiency.
It’s no secret financial services organizations own and operate legacy solutions. Some of these
core processes are front and center, meeting customer needs; others are in the middle, supporting
account handling operations; and still many more are in the back-office, handling data and managing
analytics. The challenge for financial leaders is to ensure these traditional systems don’t prevent
the delivery of great digital experiences now and into the future.
Prime your business for growth with a software-defined approach.
The current business-enterprise climate demands robust connectivity and delivery in services. As IT executives continue to invest in integrated infrastructure, companies that remain committed to hardware-centric infrastructure are being left behind and subsequently are exposing their enterprises to risk and loss. Liabilities include time wastage and financial costs in the management and maintenance of legacy infrastructure, creating a deficit in executives’ energy when it comes to innovation and future planning.
VMware’s Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) is a malleable, sophisticated solution which facilitates the vital transition from physical to virtualized storage solutions. HCI is the foundation for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) destined for leading enterprise operations.
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.

Au cours des dernières années, le terme « BYOD » ( Bring
Your Own Device » ou « Utilisation de terminaux personnels »)
a gagné en popularité dans le monde du travail, et les terminaux
mobiles sont devenus très courants dans de nombreuses
entreprises. Toutefois, ce terme englobe bien plus que cette
nouvelle tendance. L’utilisation de terminaux personnels n’est
qu’une partie d’une évolution plus importante et plus profonde :
celle de la consumérisation de l’informatique qui remonte au
début des années 2000. À cette époque, presque tout le monde
avait un ordinateur personnel qui permettait de travailler chez soi
en dehors des heures de travail. Nous avions tous les avantages
de ces terminaux choisis avec soin et nous profitions d’un grand
confort d’utilisation par rapport aux terminaux d’entreprise
préparés par le service informatique.
La mobilità resta un'opportunità strategica di primo piano per tutti i tipi di in quanto può rendere di rendere le imprese più competitive migliorando la produttività dei dipendenti oppure creando modalità innovative di coinvolgimento dei clienti. Per realizzare questa opportunità, la Enterprise Mobility deve fornire agli utenti un'esperienza di utilizzo fluida su più dispositivi e offrire un'area di lavoro sicura per le applicazioni di importanza critica. Per sostenere gli utenti di dispositivi mobili e la base clienti, le aziende devono attivare in modo sicuro le capacità BYOD (Bring Your Own Device, ovvero "Porta il tuo dispositivo") e self-service tramite una piattaforma solida, in grado di adattarsi adattarsi a nuovi processi.
La mobilité reste une opportunité stratégique importante
pour les entreprises de toutes sortes, car elle peut contribuer
à augmenter leur compétitivité en rendant les employés plus
productifs ou en s'engageant auprès des clients de manière
plus innovante. Pour atteindre ce potentiel, la mobilité des
entreprises doit proposer aux utilisateurs une expérience simple
sur plusieurs terminaux et offrir un espace de travail sécurisé
pour les applications essentielles. Pour servir cette base d'employés mobiles et de clients, les entreprises doivent activer leurs fonctionnalités BYOD et self-service avec une plateforme établie qui s'adapte pour prendre en charge de nouveaux processus.
La plateforme de gestion de la mobilité d'entreprise (EMM)
offre à l'informatique la possibilité d'activer les transformations
de processus métier, de favoriser de nouveaux revenus et de créer de nouvelles façons mémorables de se connecter aux clients.

Deliver better services, reduce expenses and comply with regulations are familiar business demands heard by financial services IT leaders. Simultaneously, the time and cost of managing custom apps to run core business operations continues to rise. Not only does this obstruct the speed of innovation adoption, it also increases the need for better end user experiences due to app management volume.
How can financial services IT teams enable more efficacy alongside business growth, while reducing their own IT management burden? This ebook examines four ways financial services organizations can deliver apps and manage users at scale while reducing costs and optimizing existing investments.
Digital transformation (DX) is the driving force behind new worldwide initiatives in financial services. However, a recent IDC survey discovered that fewer than 5% of institutions have started or completed a digital transformation strategy. Historically, financial institutions focused on the use of mobility to directly drive improved customer experiences to their customers' devices. However, as consumer sophistication with mobility increases — particularly among younger generations —so too does the need to enable mobility for the enterprise worker. This Market Spotlight explores these issues in the larger DX context.
Advances in the technologies of the electronic components essential to mobility continue to yield powerful and productive mobile computers and communicators, with an amazing range of function and raw capabilities that even seasoned professionals find remarkable. There also have been dramatic improvements in wireless networks—from Wi-Fi to the broadband cellular services that continue to expand in both coverage and capacity—that offer throughput and related performance characteristics that rival what’s possible on wire. Finally, add in apps, cloud solutions and related management capabilities, and there’s never been a better time than right now to profit from a strategy that reaps the benefits of a mobile workforce—and, really, a mobile organization.

There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
