For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible.
Managing infrastructure has always brought with it frustration, headaches and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights and weekends dealing with problems that are disruptive to their applications and organization and manually tune their infrastructure. And, the challenges increase as the number of applications and reliance on infrastructure continues to grow.
Luckily, there is a better way. HPE InfoSight is artificial intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents problems across the infrastructure stack and ensures optimal performance and efficient resource use.
Today’s leading-edge organizations differentiate themselves through analytics to further their competitive advantage by extracting value from all their data sources. Other companies are looking to become data-driven through the modernization of their data management deployments. These strategies do include challenges, such as the management of large growing volumes of data. Today’s digital world is already creating data at an explosive rate, and the next wave is on the horizon, driven by the emergence of IoT data sources. The physical data warehouses of the past were great for collecting data from across the enterprise for analysis, but the storage and compute resources needed to support them are not able to keep pace with the explosive growth. In addition, the manual cumbersome task of patch, update, upgrade poses risks to data due to human errors. To reduce risks, costs, complexity, and time to value, many organizations are taking their data warehouses to the cloud. Whether hosted lo
Data is a driver of growth and change that is quickly becoming the world's most valuable resource. As such, finance leaders face increased pressure to value data as an asset on their balance sheets and use it to drive business strategy. To capitalize on the power of data, learn how to pinpoint where you are today. what steps you can take to reach your goals and how to measure success.
In the past, companies have been able to adopt and utilize a business-as-usual IT infrastructure and get away with it. They purchased hardware to keep pace with data growth, managed multiple servers, and hired an ever-increasing workforce to ensure their organization succeeded. But with diminishing budgets and fewer resources, these institutions can no longer afford to carry out each and every one of these processes to maintain their IT infrastructure.
To successfully navigate workforce transformation, you need to consider both IT and end-user needs. Upgrading your hardware, and “right-sizing” it to fit your workforce only solves half the issue. Download this executive summary to learn ways to best upgrade PCs efficiently with effective solutions to meet the needs of the emerging workforce. Organizations who find this balance can turn their workforce into a strategic asset and gain a competitive advantage while freeing up IT resources to invest in other aspects of digital transformation.

Previous best practices for cleaning healthcare facilities centered on sanitizing frequently touched objects, such as bed rails or call buttons, because these objects were believed to be major sources of contagion. However, this new study finds that floors are the largest potential source of pathogens after reviewing five participating Cleveland-area hospitals.
Specifically, the following findings are highlighted in the study:
• Patient room floors in five hospitals were found to be contaminated with healthcare-associated pathogens.
• High-touch objects often came to be in direct contact with the floor.
• Touching objects on the floor frequently resulted in transfer of pathogens to hands.
• Floors in hospital rooms are overlooked as a source for pathogen dissemination, with potentially dangerous results.

All companies, small and large, grapple with infrastructure growth and IT modernization. For many companies, datacenter infrastructure has become an essential part of a hybrid cloud environment that allows users to consume internal and external resources seamlessly. This, in turn, is helping modernize today's datacenters and drive new levels of agility, productivity, and scale.
A common attribute of modern datacenter infrastructure is solutions that provide all compute and data services as a single system that can be managed holistically at a rack scale. IDC refers to such solutions as converged infrastructure.

VAT rules can be complex, HMRC – a gauntlet. In this eBook, we demystify some of the facts around
compliance, tax and expense management.
The British economy has gone from boom to bust. The recession followed by a long period of austerity
and caution has altered spending behaviours while the government has increasingly cracked down
on tax evasion and fraud. HMRC has become more focused on assisting businesses of all sizes to
comply with their policies and implement good governance when it comes to finances.
Nevertheless, the reality can sometimes be confusing and the penalties for getting it wrong – severe.
Many businesses outsource their tax management to experts or muddle through, running the risk of
non-compliance. There’s a real need for unambiguous, helpful advice about expenses, VAT and

VAT has been a valuable source of revenue for the UK Government since 1973. Yet, despite
more than 40 years of getting used to calculating, paying and reclaiming VAT, businesses
still struggle to adhere to HMRC guidelines.
With support from SAP Concur, it doesn’t have to be this way. First, we offer an expense
audit solution to check for fraud and non-compliance. Secondly, we work with tax
specialists to help you comply with VAT regulations. Thirdly, we give you visibility and control
over all aspects of your travel, expense and invoice spending.
Crucially, we see VAT reclaim as an opportunity to reduce business costs and put
money back in your budget.
In businesses and organizations across the world, rooms once humming with wires, black boxes and blinking lights now sit empty. In a lonely phone closet, there’s only dust, a single lonely terminal, or perhaps a foosball table where IT pros can let off steam.
The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.
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.

This paper covers some of the critical security gaps today’s mobile-cloud enterprises must address:
• Unsecured devices. Unsecured devices allow users to easily access business data from mobile apps or cloud services simply by entering their credentials into an app or browser on the device. Once on the device, data can be easily compromised or shared with unauthorized, external sources.
• Unmanaged apps. These typically include business apps, such as Office 365 productivity apps, that the user has downloaded from a personal app store instead of the enterprise app store. As a result, these apps are not under IT control but can still be used to access business content once the user enters his or her credentials.
• Unsanctioned cloud services. Most enterprise cloud services have associated ecosystems of apps and services that integrate using APIs. While the enterprise cloud service might be sanctioned, apps and services from its ecosystem might not be.
