In this paper, we focus on quantifying the capital cost differences of a prefabricated vs. traditional 440 kW data center, both built with the same power and cooling architecture, in order to highlight the key cost drivers, and to demonstrate that prefabrication does not come
at a capex premium.
Companies are looking for solutions that mean less financial outlay for head-office whilst at the same time simplifying operations. Given these considerations, SD-WAN can be seen as an alternative that can be integrated within the entire WAN architecture.

Learn about the HPE Intelligent Data Platform and the new IT realities it addresses. With digital transformation underway in many organizations, more dynamic business models are becoming the key to success. This means infrastructure modernization and the introduction of technologies such as solid state storage, artificial intelligence and machine learning, software-defined infrastructure, and the cloud. At the same time, it means IT infrastructure management becomes much more complex. Enter HPE’s Intelligent Data Platform. With comprehensive coverage and AI/ML-driven real-time optimization that enables intelligent management of the entire data life cycle, the HPE Intelligent Data Platform enables an organization to get the most out of its IT resources while also meeting its evolving needs over time.
Tech advances like the cloud, mobile technology, and the app-based software model have changed the way today’s modern business operates.
They’ve also changed the way criminals attack and steal from businesses. Criminals strive to be agile in much the same way that companies do. Spreading malware is a favorite technique among attackers. According to the 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 28% of data breaches included malware.¹
While malware’s pervasiveness may not come as a surprise to many people, what’s not always so well understood is that automating app attacks—by means of malicious bots —is the most common way cybercriminals commit their crimes and spread malware. It helps them achieve scale.
We’re seeing a global trend towards responsible investing. Increasingly, institutional investors are recognising the potential for ESG factors to affect the valuation and financial performance of the companies they invest in. At the same time, consumer demand for responsible investments is surging, especially from the younger generation.
“Responsible” or “sustainable” finance and a focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors have moved firmly into the mainstream today.
This booklet presents the proof to address the issues around responsible investment implementation: statistics from across investment markets that show how significant this shift is.
"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support.
At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
Digital transformation is a business enabler, one that also translates to an increase in the demand for greater storage capacity and performance. This increasing demand requires IT organizations to re-examine their data storage strategy as the growth in capacity doesn’t align with a shrinking IT budget. To support the growth of the business and remain competitive in a global digital market, CIOs are asked more than ever to “do more with less,” while improving performance and availability at the same time.
La trasformazione digitale è un acceleratore di business che, fra le altre cose, sta portando ad un aumento della domanda per ottenere prestazioni migliori e una maggiore capacità di archiviazione. Tale domanda fa sì che le aziende debbano riesaminare la loro strategia di storage, poiché l’aumento della capacità storage non coincide con i sempre minori budget a disposizione del settore IT. Per poter sostenere lo sviluppo della propria attività commerciale e rimanere competitivi all’interno di un mercato digitale globale, ai CIO viene chiesto sempre più spesso di “fare di più con meno risorse” e, al contempo, di migliorare prestazioni e disponibilità.

Component Content Management: A New Paradigm in Intelligent Content Services
While technology has changed the world, the way that companies manage information has inherently stayed the same. The advent of near-ubiquitous connectivity among applications and machines has resulted in a data deluge that will fundamentally alter the landscape of content management. From mobile devices to intelligent machines, the volume and sophistication of data have surpassed the ability of humans to manage it with outdated methods of collection, processing, storage, and analysis. The opportunity afforded by the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) has stimulated the market to search for a better way to capture, classify, and analyze this data in its journey to digital transformation (DX). The paradigm of document-based information management has proven to be a challenge in finding, reusing, protecting, and extracting value from data in real time. Legacy systems may struggle with fragmented information
Cybersecurity just isn't getting any easier. While protection technolgoies continue to advance at a rapid pace, so do the cybercriminals trying to circumvent them.
Rather than continuing further with the same approach to cybersecurity, it’s time to move to cybersecurity as a system. By enabling security products to share information and work together in real time you can stay ahead of the threats while also freeing up valuable IT resources.

According to the annual report on fraud and internet crime published by the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a staggering total of more than $2.7 billion was lost through online fraud and financial crime in 2018, the last full year available. And according to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), there were more than 1.4 million fraud reports in that same time period. Many of these fraud events involved brand impersonation or illegal activities conducted via a brand’s website. In other words, the trust and faith the public has in your brand can be used as a cover for illegal activities, making fraudsters’ schemes appear authentic or trustworthy.

In today’s experience economy, a simple request for feedback on a receipt
is not enough to accurately determine your guests’ needs. Guests need
to be presented with the option to share feedback at the right time for
them—whenever, wherever, and however they want to. At the same time,
the volume of feedback requests and the length of surveys often result in
survey fatigue and other negative emotions in guests.
This is just one of the complex issues restaurant brands find themselves
facing today. Others include:
• How do I understand the experience every individual guest has with
• How do I communicate with them in a way that they’re more likely to
• How can I demonstrate awareness of the guests’ situations and acknowledge their needs?

Containers have become the new infrastructure
standard for development teams. While the “DIY
container approach” (un-orchestrated containers)
still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer
compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade
deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams
are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes
and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27%
adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019
according to the RightScale “2019 State of the Cloud
Report,” from Flexera. The same report also positions
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes
offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate.
Previously, containers were a technology deployed
by individual teams – and were typically used for
“application testing” in the enterprise world. Today,
many organizations are now not only seeing the
benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy
production applications, but also re-positioni
