Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.

Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system.
Questions to Ask During an Evaluation:
• Have you sized this system for my peak demand?
• Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy?
• How many hours of call recording are included?
• How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment?
• What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system?
• Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?
It’s not really about Windows Server 2003. It’s about moving forward – HP Technology services experts can help you chart the proper course.
Shortcuts will take longer and cost more than doing it right at the start. If you’re considering migration shortcuts, think again – HP Transformation Experience Workshop for Windows Server 2003 Migration can speed the process.
Do you have your arms around your Windows Server 2003 migration?
Sure, your team has probably headed up countless maintenance initiatives in the past - upgrades, refreshes, migrations. But if you make the mistake of thinking your Windows Server 2003 migration is more of the same, you will lose on two fronts. First, you will underestimate the complexity of the effort, thus increasing the chance of failure by overrunning timeline and budget. More importantly, you will miss the opportunity to bring value to your business. This paper introduces five considerations that will change your perspective on the Windows Server migration initiative - and spur technical, finance and line of business employees to jump on board.
This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance.
After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes.
It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.
An IDG Connect survey of 300 enterprise organization decision makers involved in hardware investment decisions reveals the challenges and opportunities that lay between the old style of IT characterized by cost-cutting and infrastructure silos, with the new style of IT driven by the technology trends of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data. These trends have created a significant increase in business expectations that will press IT organizations to rethink their economics, service delivery and business performance. This paper highlights voice-of-the-IT-buyer research results for insight on the challenges and opportunities for IT organizations to drive innovation, transformation and improved delivery against business expectations.

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.
In the application economy, speed, innovation and quality have become table stakes. If you can’t meet your customers’ expectations, they will surely find a competitor who can. Whether your organization is in one of the sectors facing the most intense digital competition—insurance, banking, telecommunications or retail—or in a more traditional industry, how rapidly and successfully you embrace a software-driven digital transformation strategy will likely have a profound effect on your organization’s long term viability. Within this transformation sphere, the development of “omnichannel” or “digitally-connected multi-channel” capabilities is a key priority. CA Technologies can help you deliver a consistent, integrated and quality customer experience, regardless of how your customers choose to interact with you.
The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years. JP Morgan Chase has more software developers than Google and more technologists than Microsoft. If you think your company isn’t in the software business, you’re wrong. Airlines, oil companies, telecommunications providers all are using applications to attract customers and gain a competitive advantage.
With the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices, a whole new platform for application and content delivery is evolving. With their colorful, interactive, intuitive user interfaces, always-on global connectivity, sensing capabilities such as GPS and device orientation and their ability to connect with users through personalized con? guration options, mobile is truly the de? ning platform of the applicat
If you’re relying on manual processes for testing applications, artificial and automated intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can help you build more efficient continuous frameworks for quality delivery.
