When it comes to the increasingly complex task of managing data storage, many small and midsize organizations face even greater challenges than large, global enterprises.
Small and midsize companies have ever-increasing volumes of information to manage and secure, and they are confronting a number of difficulties when it comes to storage. Among the biggest hurdles:
›› Scaling storage as the business grows rapidly
›› Meeting the rising expense of data storage capacity
›› Dealing with the complexity of management and architecture
›› Devoting precious staff time managing storage and data backup
Whereas larger organizations have significant IT budgets and staff to handle storage-related challenges, small and midsize companies lack the IT resources to dedicate to storage management. Fortunately, there are new approaches to data storage on the market that can help such companies address their data storage needs without requiring dedicated storage management resources, while at the same ti
The business context for process excellence and business process management (BPM) has changed dramatically since the 2009-to-2010 recession. During the recession, BPM software and services saw impressive double-digit growth as a result of enterprises slashing costs and boosting worker productivity.
Now, executive agendas have shifted to focus on growing revenue, expanding the customer base, and delivering new digital products and services. Enterprise and process architects are reshaping their business cases for BPM around these new drivers. This is not an easy task. However, process excellence will play a critical role for forward-thinking enterprise architects that invest the time to link BPM to new front-office drivers to help the organization drive digital transformation. This report replaces “Building The Case For Your BPM Initiative” in the business process management playbook and provides guidance on developing revenue and customer-focused business cases.

“Unpolluted” data is core to a successful business – particularly one that relies on analytics to survive. But preparing data for analytics is full of challenges. By some reports, most data scientists spend 50 to 80 percent of their model development time on data preparation tasks. SAS adheres to five data management best practices that help you access, cleanse, transform and shape your raw data for any analytic purpose. With a trusted data quality foundation and analytics-ready data, you can gain deeper insights, embed that knowledge into models, share new discoveries and automate decision-making processes to build a data-driven business.
Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit
Organizations across all sizes and industries are leveraging tools to simplify business.

Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1

As enterprises have embraced IT trends like cloud computing and virtualization, their operational needs have evolved to make application performance more important than ever before. But operating applications at peak performance is challenging in the cloud. That's why many enterprise IT departments now have Applications Operations groups tasked with ensuring that applications run efficiently across these complex IT stacks. But, most tools designed to address these application performance management (APM) issues were never designed for this dynamic environment. To achieve smooth delivery of applications at all times, Applications Operations groups need APM solutions that can give them insight and analytics to manage their apps. This SlashGuide gives IT managers a scorecard to identify APM solutions that will deliver more efficient application performance.
