This report covers the complex nature of powering the data center. The drive for improved efficiencies and managing variable IT capacity requirements are top priorities for all data center operators and managers. The intelligent power
chain achieved via the right hardware configuration coupled with intelligence and analytics can provide robust gains in five key areas.
This paper will explore the concept behind Ultra-Efficient data
center chilled water system design and control integration
that will see an additional 40 to 60 percent energy savings in
today's best-in-class variable-speed chilled water systems.
It has been obvious for some time that the power distribution system within the data center is the key opportunity to focus upon in order to actively manage the rising costs of power and more specifically, identify problems and waste in real-time.
With future-thinking organizations sharing knowledge between Facilities and IT, the push for more intelligence within this rack-based power infrastructure has become urgent with higher rack power densities. In fact, proactive power management at all stages in the distribution chain within enterprise data centers has become the requirement to feed efficiency studies and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) style optimization initiatives.

When buying a workstation, price-performance matters. But it’s not the only
consideration. Also important is aligning features and capabilities with user
applications and workloads. So are system optimization, expandability and
support. While many buyers — especially in graphics, video and multimedia
fields — might consider Apple’s iMac, iMac Pro and MacBook Pro models
best suited to their needs, they may be selling themselves short in many
ways. This paper provides a checklist for buyers to compare Apple’s newest
high-end offerings with the latest Dell Precision workstations.

Putting inventory in the right place at the right time
No company wants to be known as the “company that never delivers.” That’s what poor inventory optimization leads to, as customers wait for that guaranteed two-day shipping that turns into three, four, five days, and beyond. To stay competitive and keep customers loyal, you need to know where to store inventory and for how long. Optimizer for Anaplan makes inventory optimization fast and easy.
Inside this paper, you’ll find:
Why optimization is key to supply chain success

As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
Over the past ten years, IT personnel costs have risen faster than hardware and software investments. IT services have not improved process-wise and still require as much manpower, if not more, to operate now as they did in the past. As firms spend 76% of their IT budget on maintenance and support, they will naturally invest in BSM solutions that will reduce costs, enable ITIL, and provide an optimal ROI.
ASG's Business Service PortfolioT (BSPT) Virtualization Management provides comprehensive oversight, inspections, discoveries, warnings, diagnostics, and reporting for the critical technology and administrative disciplines involved in virtual workload management.

Limited visibility has tethered CIOs' success in both IT and business. However, using federated CMDB technology, CIOs can view the complete IT infrastructure and the entire lifecycle of a business service.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
Enterprise content is growing at an average rate of 200% per year-and the risks of noncompliance are growing even faster. This paper examines the business and technical difficulties of managing content from disparate systems and presents the most viable alternatives for addressing these challenges.
Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
Managing service delivery in todayís complex and dynamic business environments demands new and different approaches from IT. The explosive growth and the rate of change of information has brought particularly daunting challenges for IT that have contributed to incredibly complex underlying infrastructures. To get a true picture of all of the components necessary to support an IT or Business Service, you must access and bring together data that resides in disparate data silos throughout the enterprise.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Application Portfolio Optimization (APO) provides executives with tools and information to assess the quality and condition of application assets as well as a means for understanding the impact of proposed application changes.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
This paper can help you achieve successful legacy modernization projects. It presents practical steps for starting application modernization projects and describes the benefits of three high payback strategies. It also reviews the criteria for evaluating a variety of modernization tools.
