It is no secret banks are losing customers, and fast. A recent Finextra/Pegasystems survey pegs that 78% of banks have lost business in the last 12 months. The question is “Why?”. It all comes down to engaging with customers before, during and even after the sales process. Nearly all banks are struggling with the impact of client due diligence and KYC (know your customer) regulation on their onboarding processes, and are painfully aware that lack of speed, process visibility and repeat data requests are frustrating their corporate customers. The same holds true for service, where corporates are crying out for improvement, as well as omni-channel access and quick turnaround of service requests and inquiries. To stop the sales decline, banks need to begin doing all these things well. They will then be more competitive in the market as well as retain and win new business.

The broad adoption of the next generation of cloud, mobile, M2M, and big data applications is having profound impacts on IT and network infrastructures. Compared to traditional applications, these applications have much shorter life cycles. You must be able to spin them up, spin them down, and grow and shrink them on demand. Furthermore, you must be able to move these application workloads within a data center or across geographically distributed data centers, resulting in increased management complexities.

This paper provides a brief recap of the functionality provided by web proxies, why proxy architecture is still a vital building block for a comprehensive web defense, and how web proxies can work with other solutions such as next-gen firewall (NGFW) to deepen the organization’s defenses against advanced web-based threats.
This document includes general information about the Pure Storage architecture as it compares to SolidFire. Not intended to be exhaustive, it covers architectural elements where the solutions differ and impact overall suitability for the needs of the Next Generation Data Center (NGDC).
Hotels and resorts with function space may well have an opportunity to boost their
overall property revenue, given the escalating demand for function space and the
fact that many of them have already maximized the value of their guest rooms
through sophisticated revenue management capabilities. Success generally starts
with a next-generation technology solution that can empower sales and catering
personnel. Success also requires having in place the right organizational resources,
business processes and performance metrics.

Today, SAP’s solution portfolio looks very different and addresses different business needs than the SAP of a few years ago. Instead of primarily managing back-office enterprise resource planning (ERP) processes such as finance and the supply chain, SAP is evolving into a new type of software company that’s poised to enable digital business. Numerous acquisitions — including leading eCommerce solution hybris and cloud solutions Ariba, Concur, and SuccessFactors — and a new platform strategy based on SAP Hana, an in-memory computing solution, mean that the SAP core is positioned to support real-time digital business in the era of connected everything.

Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are oversized, inefficient, and unpredictable. Room, row, and rack-based cooling methods have been developed to address these problems. This paper describes these improved cooling methods and provides guidance on when to use each type for most next generation data centers.
The technical and financial advantages of solid state drives are driving a rapid transition from hard disk-drive (HDD) and hybrid-flash array (HFA) storage systems to all-flash arrays (AFAs). The white paper identifies some of the key considerations for evaluating all-flash storage infrastructure for three major uses cases: standalone applications, virtualized applications, and next-generation cloud services.
Flash-Storage dringt immer mehr in die Mainstream-Datenverarbeitung vor. Dadurch
verstehen die Unternehmen zunehmend nicht nur die Performance-Vorteile, sondern auch
die sekundären wirtschaftlichen Vorteile, die mit einer Flash-Implementierung im großen
Maßstab verbunden sind. Dank der Kombination all dieser Vorteile – geringere Latenzen,
höherer Durchsatz und größere Bandbreite, höhere Storage-Dichten, deutlich geringerer
Energie- und Platzbedarf, höhere CPU-Auslastung, geringerer Bedarf an Servern und damit
verbunden geringere Softwarelizenzgebühren, geringere Administrationskosten und eine
größere Zuverlässigkeit auf Einheitenebene – erweist sich die Verwendung von AFAs als
eine wirtschaftlich überzeugende Alternative zu den herkömmlichen Storage -Architekturen,
die ursprünglich für Festplattenlaufwerke (HDDs) konzipiert waren. Während die
Wachstumsraten für Hybrid-Flash-Arrays (HFAs) und für ausschließlich in Verbindung mit
HDDs verwendete Arrays steil nach unten gehen, gehören die
As flash storage has permeated mainstream computing, enterprises are coming to better understand
not only its performance benefits but also the secondary economic benefits of flash deployment at
scale. This combination of benefits — lower latencies, higher throughput and bandwidth, higher
storage densities, much lower energy and floor space consumption, higher CPU utilization, the need
for fewer servers and their associated lower software licensing costs, lower administration costs, and
higher device-level reliability — has made the use of AFAs an economically compelling choice
relative to legacy storage architectures initially developed for use with hard disk drives (HDDs). As
growth rates for hybrid flash arrays (HFAs) and HDD-only arrays fall off precipitously, AFAs are
experiencing one of the highest growth rates in external storage today — a compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 26.2% through 2020.
Windows Server 2016 is an important release in enabling
IT to deliver on the promise of the third platform.
It provides a path to a seamless, integrated cloud
environment—incorporating public, private and hybrid
models—with the software-defined data center as the
hub. In migrating to this next-generation data center
model, it is essential that IT leaders choose the right
partner for the compute platform, as well as storage,
networking and systems management
