Windows Server 2016 is an important release in enabling
IT to deliver on the promise of the third platform.
It provides a path to a seamless, integrated cloud
environment—incorporating public, private and hybrid
models—with the software-defined data center as the
hub. In migrating to this next-generation data center
model, it is essential that IT leaders choose the right
partner for the compute platform, as well as storage,
networking and systems management
The purpose of expense reporting software is to streamline your team’s workflow for submitting and reviewing business expenditures. By implementing an expense management solution, you can decrease the time and costs associated with processing expenses and increase your visibility into the implications of business spend, while helping improve general expense policy compliance and reduce expense fraud.
In this webinar Black Duck Software (www.blackducksoftware.com), together with representatives of SAP, will review the benefits open source offers to development organizations, the management challenges it presents, and approaches for addressing those challenges.

The concept of “shifting left” has gained traction in
software development as a way to increase agility,
reduce cost, and improve product and release quality.
But shifting left has also been hailed as a powerful
method for optimizing IT service management. When
the service desk team shifts left, both end users and
service desk personnel benefit from greater efficiency
and service quality, which leads to happier, more
productive internal customers—and ultimately,
better business outcomes.
I don’t think it’s too much at all. However, I would recommend including some bullets calling out key points from the paper and a distinct call-to-action. Something like this:
At the start of every year, more than 80% of your annual IT spend is likely already committed – in the form of depreciation, maintenance, and support for infrastructure – inhibiting your ability to bring new capabilities to the business.
Making matters worse, these dollars often lie hidden in the form of inefficient or ill-advised software license management. If you don’t have the luxury of a mature vendor management function, you probably struggle to see the full picture of your future maintenance costs.
This guide will give you the tools to assess your IT spend by identifying potential blind spots and uncovering the benefits of ELAs and TLAs. Some blind spots may include:
• Limited visibility
• Productivity barriers
• Risk exposures

Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management.
Project portfolio management (PPM) software suites have evolved significantly in just the last few years.
No longer simply straightforward task–consolidation tools, they have become powerful enterprise
solutions capable of everything from investment planning and management to collaboration and
workflow automation across concurrent initiatives.
Softwaresuiten für das Projekt- und Portfoliomanagement (PPM) haben sich allein in den letzten Jahren stark
weiterentwickelt. Sie sind nicht mehr nur einfache Tools für die Konsolidierung von Aufgaben, sondern sind zu
leistungsstarken Unternehmenslösungen geworden, die alles von der Investitionsplanung und -verwaltung bis hin
zur Zusammenarbeit und zur Workflow-Automatisierung für gleichzeitige Initiativen bieten.
Negli ultimi anni le suite software di Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) sono cambiate notevolmente. Da semplici strumenti per il consolidamento di attività, si sono trasformate in potenti soluzioni enterprise con molteplici capacità, dalla pianificazione e gestione degli investimenti alla collaborazione, fino all'automazione dei workflow di iniziative concomitanti.

Cisco has recently unveiled its new intent-based networking strategy, called "The Network. Intuitive." The goal of intent-based networking is to allow greater levels of automation, security integration, and centralized manageability within a software subscription orientation. Intent-based networking is underpinned by Software-Defined Access (SDA), Cisco's automation engine built upon the company's Digital Network Architecture (DNA), which automates network segmentation, policy enforcement, and troubleshooting. Other core components of the announcement include a refresh of Cisco Catalyst switches, a new licensing model for infrastructure, and an all-in-one management console called DNA Center.

Service virtualization offers a solution. Service virtualization tools simulate software components so end-to-end testing can proceed even when dependent components are not available. That means teams can perform integration tests sooner and more often, accelerating the delivery of high-quality, thoroughly tested applications.
Voke conducted a survey of 505 participants from technology and non-technology companies to explore their use of service virtualization and its results. Organizations using service virtualization experienced fewer defects, reduced software cycles, and increased customer satisfaction.
The 2015 Service Virtualization Market Snapshot™ REPORT by Voke Research provides real-world data to help you justify the investment in service virtualization.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.

This whitepaper explores the new SPARC S7 server features and then compares this
offering to a similar x86 offering.
The key characteristics of the SPARC S7 to be highlighted are:
? Designed for scale-out and cloud infrastructures
? SPARC S7 processor with greater core performance than the latest Intel Xeon E5
? Software in Silicon which offers hardware-based features such as data acceleration
The SPARC S7 is then compared to a similar x86 solution from three different
perspectives, namely performance, risk and cost.
Performance matters as business markets are
driving IT to provide an environment that:
? Continuously provides real-time results.
? Processes more complex workload stacks.
? Optimizes usage of per-core software licenses.
Risk matters today and into the foreseeable future,
as challenges to secure systems and data are
becoming more frequent and invasive from within
and from outside. Oracle SPARC systems approach

Agent-based security solutions such as anti-virus software rely
on controlling all processes on a system. This approach breaks
in sandboxed environments as one process cannot control
other aspects of the system. To secure mobile, IT has to
replace traditional PC management tools with purpose-built
enterprise mobility management (EMM) Platforms,
designed to enable end-user productivity while securing
apps, content and devices.

Today's test data management (TDM) solutions force teams to work with compromised data sets, and push testing to too late in the software development lifecycle. The end result is rework, delayed releases, and costly bugs that cripple production systems. Furthermore, prevailing approaches to test data management - including subsetting, synthetic data, shared environments, and standalone masking--represent flawed solutions that fail across one or more key dimensions.
