Digital transformation has become a business imperative as most aspects of economic engagement have become digital. Around the globe, businesses and government agencies are re-engineering their technology infrastructures to keep pace with customer demands, spur innovation and stay competitive in an ever-evolving digital economy.
Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) systems bundle multiple technology components together into single systems, enabling IT departments to spend less time managing separate data center components and more time proactively delivering value to the business. In this white paper, we compare the portfolio offerings of Dell EMC and HPE, and highlight significant benefits to be realized when partnering with the HCI market leader: Dell EMC.
Dell EMC provides a tightly integrated software ecosystem and the flexibility to run multiple workload types, providing solutions to a broader customer base than HPE.
For many enterprises, the solution is a centralized single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure that leverages the enterprise directory with federation, multifactor authentication and centralized access control to give users one URL and login to access all their enterprise applications and services--without having to type in another URL or enter credentials a second time. At the same time, it provides IT with a single identity, access control and management infrastructure, closing the inevitable security and management gaps inherent in juggling multiple gateway solutions. Such a solution would offer the best of all worlds, combining enhanced user productivity with IT efficiency, cost effectiveness, security and compliance.
With the exploding adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, enterprise IT is fundamentally changing. While on-demand services provide tremendous ROI, they also introduce new challenges that must be overcome to truly capitalize on their potential. Identity management problems such as controlling who is granted access to which applications and data and how to control access to these applications leveraging on premise directories such as Active Directory, have become increasingly important. Single Sign-On and provisioning solutions that are optimized for the cloud are necessary to help address these challenges. This whitepaper presents the eight biggest identity and access management (IAM) challenges associated with adopting and deploying cloud and SaaS applications, and discusses best practices for addressing each of them.
The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary
storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on
a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and
take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become
automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible
Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount
of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem
secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure
costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information
governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data
retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability
and complete protection of the

Selecting the right single sign-on solution (SSO) for your organization can be a daunting task. Competing solutions offer varying levels of application support, management overhead, and potentially confusing (and counter- productive) cost structures. But the upside in terms of improved security, manageability and user productivity enhancements provided by the right SSO solution can be dramatic.
The questions contained within are intended to help you collect and organize the critical information you need to make a well-informed decision for your organization. Please use them as a guide during your due diligence and vendor selection process. Please download the white paper to learn more.
Users applications tend to be a mixture of cloud-based services, native apps and legacy applications that require a secure network connection like VPN. To eliminate the complexity, many companies have turned to single sign-on (SSO) solutions.
SAP HANA is a powerful, in-memory computing platform that streamlines business suite applications, analytics, planning, predictive analysis, and sentiment analysis on a single platform, so businesses can operate in real time. The design approach for enterprise-level solutions involving SAP HANA, and the best practices surrounding them, isn’t intrinsically different from the approach to any other enterprise-level solution for technology implementations. This paper is written to address those elements of good solution design and apply them to the SAP landscape, with particular focus on the SAP HANA element.
