You will be introduced to four best practices that are absolutely critical to achieving an optimal thermal environment. The report also explores the future of datacenter cooling and introduces emerging technologies.
In recent years, it seems like technology is changing faster than it used to in decades past. As employees devour newer technologies such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices, and as they become more comfortable with solutions such as Dropbox and Skype, their demands on enterprise IT intensify. Plus, management and other decision makers are also increasing their demands on enterprise IT to provide more infrastructure with less cost and time. Unfortunately, enterprise IT organizations often don’t see much, if any, associated increases in funding to accomodate these demands.
Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
New disruptive digital technologies are changing the face of workplace as well as worker expectations. The rapidly evolving 21st-century workforce is becoming increasingly mobile, contract-based, and technology savvy. Corporate real estate, IT, and HR leaders need to improve their work environments to suit these evolving needs, or they risk losing their employees to competition.

Today’s network edge is increasingly taking on a critical role in connecting users to the digital content and web services that they need to reach. This is driving a new approach to load balancing that starts at the edge. Powered by DNS, edge-based global load balancing (GLB) steers user traffic to destination endpoints based on IT-defined policies.
GLB works independently or in concert with site-based, or on premises, load balancing technologies in a “federated” system. This approach applies load balancing and traffic steering policies at each layer from the user edge to the host—whether virtual or physical—where the request is actually served.
Financial institutions seeking to attract new customers and revenue channels are expanding into digital services, real-time payments and global transactions. However, with every new service, criminals are developing innovative ways to infiltrate financial systems, and older technologies that mitigate fraud no longer work as effectively.
So how can financial institutions respond to this growing threat?
Fortunately, more advanced technologies hold great potential for real-time financial crime mitigation. Learn about five current and emerging technologies that could impact money laundering and fraud mitigation, including artificial intelligence/machine learning, blockchain, biometrics, predictive analytics (hybrid model) and APIs.

As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
Continuous member service is an important deliverable for credit unions, and. the continued growth in assets and members means that the impact of downtime is affecting a larger base and is therefore potentially much more costly. Learn how new data protection and recovery technologies are making a huge impact on downtime for credit unions that depend on AIX-hosted applications.
Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging. The new generation of analytics goes beyond Big Data (information that is too large and complex to manipulate without robust software), and the traditional narrow approach of analytics which was restricted to analysing customer and financial data collected from their interactions on social media. Today companies are embracing the social revolution, using real-time technologies to unlock deep insights about customers and others and enable better-informed decisions and richer collaboration in real-time.

The ever-rising tide of demands on IT organizations is creating constant pressure on their leaders to upgrade or replace their outmoded legacy systems with new infrastructure technologies that will allow them to keep pace with the speed of business. It is no longer sufficient to manage basic business applications and resources such as ERP, email, and silos of heterogeneous data. The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.
It seems that with each passing year the speed at which new and emerging technologies are transforming business increases in almost direct proportion to impact. We now all live in an era of digital business transformation that is being enabled by rapid advances in telecommunications services. These changes do not just impact the way employees work; they profoundly change the way customers interact with businesses of all sizes.

Recent research by HDI delves into the two groups’ expectations and priorities— according to support professionals—and explores
how closely they're aligned. Download this white paper to learn more.
The medium is evolving at a rapid pace, perhaps faster than any other. New technologies are emerging regularly—such as native, instream, and outstream— and each carries as many opportunities as they do challenges.
Millennials are reshaping the world of work through their knowledge of new technologies, work habits, and attitudes of the 21st-century workplace.

More often than not, performance and security are thought of as two separate issues that require two separate solutions. This is mainly due to the implications posed behind various performance and security products. We typically have either security solutions or performance solutions, but rarely solutions that offer both. As technology has advanced, so have our attackers, finding newer and better ways to impact both the performance and security of a site. With this in mind, it has become even more critical to come up with solutions that bridge the gap between security and performance. But how do we do that? We need to shift the focus to what we can do at the browser by leveraging various frontend techniques, such as web linking and obfuscation, versus solely relying upon the capabilities of a content delivery network (CDN) or the origin. We can take advantage of all the new and emerging frontend technologies to help provide a secure and optimal experience for users—all starting at the
Former Intel CEO Andy Grove once coined the phrase, “Technology happens.” As true as Grove’s pat aphorism has become, it’s not always good news. Twenty years ago, no one ever got fired for buying IBM. In the heyday of customer relationship management (CRM), companies bought first and asked questions later.
Nowadays, executives are being enlightened by the promise of big data technologies and the role data plays in the fact-based enterprise.
