Three common myths about the cloud
IT organizations are facing new challenges as a result of digital transformation,
widespread cloud and SaaS adoption, mobile proliferation and pervasive IoT
deployments. They must build and operate their internal data centers to deliver
high availability for mission critical applications, rapidly onboard new applications
and scale capacity on demand – all within the mandate to be cost competitive
with infrastructure as a service providers (IaaS) like AWS and Azure. They are
architecting and building new Intent-Based Data Centers to deliver private cloud
services to their internal and external customers.
As the global business world shifts to all digital, real-time operations, the legacy two-tier ERP architecture so many businesses have relied on to bridge headquarters with subsidiaries can no longer compete effectively. A simple and comprehensive answer exists in SAP S/4HANA. Available in cloud and on-premise, SAP S/4HANA gives organizations the ability to utilize the same product family across a multi-tier deployment.

Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.
To better understand how companies are finding the unique, hybrid cloud architectures that best meet their needs, we interviewed executives at companies that had reduced or changed their use of managed or cloud IaaS or that chose to avoid the public cloud in the first place.
These companies include retail, social media, healthcare, financial services, and public sector companies. Some of these companies were born in the cloud while others transitioned from traditional IT infrastructures. Company sizes ranged from 300 employees to more than 300,000.
When it comes to effectively and efficiently protecting growing volumes of data, midsized organizations face unique
challenges. That is because they live in a world of constraints that are both operational and budgetary in nature. Cloud
disaster recovery offers new options for these organizations—they can optimize their data protection economics by
integrating on-premises protection solutions with cloud-based backup and recovery methods. Dell EMC’s cloud-ready
solutions, particularly its Integrated Data Protection Appliances with native cloud extension capabilities, along with its Data
Protection Software working in conjunction with its Data Domain backup storage appliances, provide cloud disaster
recovery with flexible features. These solutions enhance operational efficiency and provide midsized organizations with
clear economic and operational benefits.
If you’re a small-to-midsized business (SMB), you know that you’re operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing business environment. Customers want their demands met instantly, and increasing competition multiplies the pressure you’re under. If you can’t deliver, you can be sure somebody else will.
Fortunately, the technology landscape is changing the way you do business. Mobility, social media, and Big Data are leveling the playing field and making it possible for companies like yours to access more sophisticated technology, reach bigger audiences, target their messages, and innovate in their offerings. Yet nothing has changed the landscape so much as the cloud.

Businesses today expect finance to play an extended role across departments, including IT, human resources, compliance, operations, sales, marketing, and most importantly, corporate strategy.To successfully deliver on this role, the finance function needs to play a bigger and visible role in real-time decision making and continuous planning. This report explores how, using cloud and analytics, finance leaders can leapfrog a few generations of technology and offer mature analytical feature/functionality and skills to the entire 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.

Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX),
transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately
deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the
network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across
multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at
Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network
(SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an
example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the
business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose
the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every
other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that
rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and
integrates the security archit
Cloud services are a pillar of a digital transformation,
but they have also become a thorn in the side of many
security architects. As data and applications that were
once behind the enterprise firewall began roaming
free—on smartphones, between Internet-of-Things
(IoT) devices, and in the cloud—the threat landscape
expanded rapidly. Security architects scrambled to adjust
their technologies, policies, and procedures. But just
when they thought they had a handle on securing their
cloud-connected enterprises, new business imperatives
indicated that one cloud wasn’t enough.
Modern enterprises operate in a multi-cloud world,
where the threat landscape has reached a new level of
complexity. Security teams are juggling a hodgepodge
of policies, threat reports, and management tools. When
each cloud operates in its own silo, the security architect
has even more difficulty supporting the CISO or CIO with a
coherent, defensible security posture.
If your organization is one of the 95% of enterprises
that operate in the cloud, you are already grappling
with cloud security. And if your organization is one of
the 85% of companies that use multiple Infrastructureas-a-Service
(IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
clouds, you have additional issues to consider.
Compared to the days when organizations managed
everything on-premises or only had a handful of cloud
deployments, this new multi-cloud world exacerbates
the expansion of the attack surface and makes threat
containment and accountability more difficult. Further,
pressure on security teams to protect everything in
the multi-cloud environment is leading to reactive and
expensive threat management.
If you are a security leader tasked with meeting the
challenges of a multi-cloud environment, eventually
you’ll find that siloed cloud security strategies fall short
of the mark. But don’t wait. Now is the time to consider
a holistic security approach that reclaims control from
