The HP Flex-Bundles for SMB with SQL Server 2014 were created to include everything that a business needs to easily build a new environment or upgrade an existing one. The following sections cover the server, storage, networking and services building blocks that make up these pre-defined configurations.
HP Flex-Bundles are built on the HP ProLiant servers that include some of the latest and most powerful Intel processors. In designing the latest generation of the HP ProLiant server families, HP wanted to not only draw on 24 years of server experience, but also gain from the depth of knowledge and insight from customers.
Data fuels workforce productivity. But corporate data typically resides in disparate silos spread across on-premises networks and cloud repositories. Knowledge workers are forced to repeatedly disrupt daily workflows to gather information from this data sprawl — a time-consuming and inefficient activity that diminishes productivity. They need a single point of access to all data sources, available from any device, where they can share and manipulate the content resources required to do their jobs.

But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or

Knowledge and strategic relationships fuel many organizations in today’s rapidly changing, global economy. As such, organizations need to leverage the individuals—and their networks—that possess the most relevant knowledge, whether they are current employees or are only loosely connected to the organization. To do this, organizations should create and leverage peer collaboration networks that enable them to identify and connect with individuals who have the unique skills, knowledge, and capabilities these organizations need. Bersin’s Research, Why Reputations and Networks Matter in the Open Talent Economy, indicates that this approach works in driving value—organizations that have effectively used internal reputation networks and profile databases have been able to increase key metrics such as employees’ time to productivity and innovation levels.

Everyone knows that effective network management practices start with establishing a full foundational understanding of the network. But simply monitoring individual elements can only get you so far. Historically, going the next step requires manually building and maintaining the knowledge of how those disparate elements are connected and how they interact with one another to deliver applications and communications. In other words, you need to understand network-level dependencies.
There is little question that cloud is well established as a way to deliver business applications. Based on IDC research, over 70% of manufacturing companies are using hosted applications somewhere within their supply chain, with another 25% considering it. The most popular supply chain management (SCM) application areas are transportation related (transportation management, global trade management), where the "network effect" (i.e., carrier pooling, regulatory impact) can leverage both shared knowledge and existing connectivity along with sales and operations planning, demand signal management, and business intelligence/analytics. The concern that cloud is "risky" is increasingly taking a back seat to the perceived benefits of the technology. Indeed, those benefits, both achieved and anticipated, are significant, including cost, speed of implementation, and the ability to "consume" new capabilities and functionality easily and transparently.

Hyper-complex production meets cognitive computing. Electronics manufacturing is surrounded by continuous complexity. Executives face rising resource costs in traditionally low-cost production markets. They must address increasing customization, shorter lead times, frequently changing requirements and shrinking order sizes – all while managing a sophisticated supply network. They need to examine automation potential and maintain critical institutional knowledge. Thinner margins and increased competition threaten consistent quality, risk greater downtime and reduce desired flexibility. Investments in new equipment and automation systems are increasing the amount of data available from the shop floor, but most is not used to its full potential. Now, cognitive manufacturing is transforming production to address such complexity.

In the running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you can’t afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide “teachable moments” for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders. It borrows from education theory and online gaming to present knowledge in ways that motivate learning a

The desire to invest in antimalware software can be stated simply: avoid malware infection. Malware can create back doors into your network; puts your information, assets, and sensitive intellectual property in peril; and ultimately jeopardizes your business operations, resulting in unspecified collateral damage to your brand. This paper discusses Large-scale data mining technologies, Cloud computing platforms and Deep-seated knowledge of threats facing enterprises.
A social business is an organization whose culture and systems encourage networks of people to create business value. Social businesses connect individuals, so they can rapidly share information, knowledge and ideas by having conversations and publishing informal content. They analyze social content from multiple channels and sources, in addition to structured data, to gain insights from both external and internal stakeholders. When those things happen, innovation and business execution rates increase, better decisions are made, and customers and employees are more engaged and satisfied. Social businesses enjoy lower operating costs, faster speed-to-market, improved customer and employee engagement, and increased profitability. Many organizations don’t fully appreciate the magnitude of the value creation potential of social business.

Whether we like it or not we are all IT users now. Through the ubiquity of networks of devices that we rely on for information, security and day-to-day transactions even those who eschew technology now rely on it, even if they do not acknowledge it. The failure of these networks can lead to widespread disruption, unhappy customers, unproductive employees and lost business. Ensuring their availability, security and efficiency is a job for experts who need powerful tools to carry out the task.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
