IT as a service (ITaaS) provides a unique opportunity for IT and line-of-business leaders to realign to transform business. Over the past decade, IT organizations have worked hard to reduce delivery time and costs through automation and commoditization. At the same time, line-of-business owners have demanded more and unique offerings to drive agility and competitive advantage. More recently, the result has been business owners working outside of IT to meet their needs. Now, enabled by cloud computing, ITaaS is catalyzing profound change in IT organizations and the processes companies follow to achieve business goals. Please download the white paper to learn more.
Today, large organizations are being buffeted by a host of changes, many of them unexpected or unfamiliar. Business information is virtually exploding in size, kind and locale, taxing the abilities of even the most progressive enterprises to keep up.

As a result of all this, IT is bending under the strain of developing and delivering necessary new services while at the same time maintaining core service quality.
This report will consider these issues, as well as IBM’s position in and efforts around developing next generation enterprise systems solutions, including its System z mainframes, POWER7+ processor-based Power Systems servers and System Storage offerings focused on those areas and use cases.
Zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats have outstripped the capabilities of traditional security methods that rely exclusively on detection and blocking. At the same time, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is accelerating.

As he shares in his book Beyond the Cloud, Benioff wanted to put into words what his focus was and then clearly communicate it to the rest of the business.
The result was the V2MOM (pronounced “V2 mom”), an acronym that stands for vision, values, methods, obstacles, and measures. Benioff says this system has helped keep everyone at the fast-growing company on the same page over the years.
Below are the basic steps of Benioff’s V2MOM system. You can use them to start defining your management process.

The economy isn’t standing still. For your business to succeed, your employees shouldn’t either. That’s why companies of all types are moving to empower their mobile workforce and engage with customers in innovative ways.

In Unternehmen und Organisationen auf der ganzen Welt sind Räume, die einst gefüllt waren mit langen Kabeln, schwarzen Kisten und blinkenden Lichtern, heute wie leer gefegt. Übrig geblieben sind lediglich ein einsamer verstaubter Telefonkasten oder eine vergessene Klemmleiste, möglicherweise auch ein Kickertisch, an dem die IT-Mitarbeiter Dampf ablassen können. Der Grund für diese drastische Veränderung ist die Cloud – oder genauer gesagt die cloudbasierte Kommunikation – welche die IT-Landschaft vollkommen auf den Kopf gestellt hat. Einige ITVerantwortliche haben den Sprung in die Cloud bereits vollzogen. Andere arbeiten auf den künftigen Wechsel hin. Und wiederum andere halten weiterhin an einer lokalen Bereitstellung fest, sei es auf eigenen Wunsch oder aus Notwendigkeit.
Företag och organisationer världen över hyser nu tomma salar; salar som tidigare var sprängfyllda med vajrar, svarta lådor och blinkande lampor. I dessa övergivna rum finns bara damm, någon ensam terminal, eller kanske ett fotbollsspel där IT-proffsen kan släppa loss. Molnet – eller mer exakt, molnbaserad kommunikation – är källan till denna förvandling av IT-landskapet i grunden. Vissa IT-experter har redan anammat detta nya landskap. Andra är igång med att migrera till molnet på sikt. Ytterligare andra står fast vid en lokalt baserad teknik, medvetet eller av praktiska skäl.
