ActualTech Media surveyed over 500 technology professionals and members of organizational management in order to gauge people’s understanding of hyperconvergence, as well as how the market is adopting such solutions.
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.
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.

According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
Cloud platforms are rewriting the way that companies work, serving as a vital foundation for digital transformation. Companies should brace for challenges that will need to be met as they transition from in-house systems to hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud, and public-cloud environments. Learn how an open-source strategy and consistent governance will help your company use multi-clouds to compete in the digital world.

The concept of an automated home is not a new one: the idea has been floated since the 1930s at World’s Fair venues, and in popular culture as TV shows and movies imagine home life of the future – solidifying the public’s view of the benefits of home automation.
In the 1980s, modern versions of the automated home began to turn up in the marketplace. The concept of the “connected house” was first introduced by the American Association of Homebuilders, and formed the basis of what we now consider to be “home automation.” The connected house presented a new way to wire, connect, and control all of the devices in the modern home. However, it proved to be too expensive, cumbersome, and difficult to construct, and became limited to the luxury homebuilder market.

It will lower long-term costs, improve collaboration, and increase confidence in data security and financial reports.

Increased access to data and more channels of communication have given citizens renewed civic power. Public-sector agencies must be just as responsive as any other enterprise with which citizens interact. If you’re an optimist, imagining the results of a hyperconnected citizenry is exciting. As long as government is responsive, greater citizen involvement could help reduce problems that plague modern society, including poverty, disenfranchisement and even crime.
From the largest states and cities to the smallest municipalities, the public sector is undergoing large-scale modernization projects. To serve constituents now and in the years ahead, government agencies need a strategy to build the right networking infrastructure.

Cloud computing is transforming IT in terms of how services are delivered, how infrastructure is deployed and managed, and how IT organizations structure themselves. For the purposes of this study, Forrester is defining a cloud solution as having three major characteristics: “self-service access, full automation of processes and policies, and metering and tracking of usage.”1 It then becomes a question of whether you manage your cloud(s) yourself, outsource it, or use a hybrid combination of private and public cloud resources.
