Businesses expect IT management to demonstrate their contributions to end-user benefits and the bottom line while addressing immediate needs and long-term performance management goals. This white paper presents IT2020, a new performance management paradigm for meeting both of these expectations.
End-user expectations and high levels of performance against Service Level Agreements (SLAs) must be achieved or organizations risk the loss of business. This paper details key capabilities needed for successful end-user monitoring and provides critical considerations for delivering a successful end-user experience.
Organizations today are undertaking tremendous digital transformations. They are adopting new technologies to identify new marketplace opportunities, enhance the customer experience, increase internal efficiencies and more.
Meet end- user expectations and enterprise IT requirements using PCs equipped with next- generation Intel Core vPro processors.
Business users expect immediate access to data, all the
time and without interruption. But reality does not always
meet expectations. IT leaders must constantly perform
intricate forensic work to unravel the maze of issues that
impact data delivery to applications. This performance
gap between the data and the application creates a
bottleneck that impacts productivity and ultimately
damages a business’ ability to operate effectively.
We term this the “app-data gap.”
Everybody has their favorite apps…but can you name even three mobile websites you like? Probably not – and that’s because retrofitting desktop web designs fails to meet users’ mobile expectations.

Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.
Enabling business value through the Mobile Web requires new thinking as well as a shift in technology. Putting “mobile first” and implementing services-based architectures are among the critical steps. The options are limited only to the imaginations of the designers but must be driven by the user’s context.
Is your site ready for the mobile opportunity?
Mobile users buy more often and spend more money, but 75% of consumers see their mobile experience as slow.
Read the Mobile is the Moneymaker infographic now to find out what mobile users expect from your e-commerce website. Compiled using data from Akamai’s recent consumer web performance expectations survey, this infographic reveals:
• E-commerce engagement and spending habits for mobile consumers

How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.

In some cases, adopting cloud IoT platform may make more sense where required processes, communication costs and cloud costs meet sufficient total cost of ownership against deploying MDC. Additionally, in situations that an end-user organization already has a secure room or a modular data center solution where infrastructure can be housed and/or the amount of infrastructure involved may be too small to benefit from power/cooling advantages of being housed in an MDC, the organization may not see a need for an MDC. An MDC is nothing more than a smaller form of a modular data center, and a number of providers have entered the modular data center solutions space in the past. These modular data center solution providers came into the market with high expectations for growth and ROI only to find that high sales were not forthcoming due to limited use cases, so many exited the space.
Suddenly, the network is cool again. Tech trends such as the Internet of Things, software-defined networking and growing end-user expectations all add up to a demand for “dialtone” network performance and reliability. But as the data deluge continues to accelerate, and as organizations continue to rely on multiple clouds to achieve business goals, how can the network keep up, much less meet tomorrow’s demands?
This e-book looks at the trends that are impacting the enterprise network—the modern network—the issues it creates for NetOps professionals, and how organizations can act today to plan for tomorrow.
Perhaps more than any programming language, Java continues to have a profound impact on how people navigate today’s world. Java’s functionality is responsible for setting a great deal of what users expect in terms of performance from their internet accessible devices.
The history of Java is more than two decades long and the language continues to grow and adapt in response to evolving consumer and business expectations. Throughout all of these changes, however, the performance of Java applications remains a paramount concern for developers.

You feel you’ve got a pretty good handle on the following challenges—exponentially increasing amounts of data, ever-increasing user expectations, and limited IT resources—along with your technical requirements. That’s why you chose to build your search app with Apache Solr. Download now to learn more about Apache SoIr and Lucidworks Fusion.
Today’s IT professionals are well aware that users expect fast, reliable access to ever-growing amounts of data – from web content, to videos, to business intelligence data and more. Meeting the challenges of this exponential growth is nearly impossible with existing, spinning media storage technology. Hard disk drives (HDDs) have been the standard in data storage for decades, but they can no longer satisfy. They create bottlenecks in data access, they fail to meet the growing demands of higher user expectations, and they consume too much power. Download to learn how to solve this issue.
A lot can be learned from getting a group of experienced CIOs in a room and encouraging them to talk freely about the topics at the front of their minds. Rarely do they want to discuss technology, and even the latest IT industry ‘hot topics’ usually don’t get that much airplay. Conversations, and sometimes quite heated debates, tend to revolve around broader business-related trends, how these are changing stakeholder and user behaviour and expectations, and how best to respond to such dynamics.
Consumers expect a seamless, high-quality experience in today’s mature app economy. They want brands to keep up with new technologies like geo-fencing and personalization, as well as the latest ecosystems like voice assistants and connected cars.
With this high bar for quality, QA organizations often struggle to keep up with:
1. Rapid Release Schedules
3. New Technologies (Voice, AI)
4. Geo-Awareness and Localization 5. Device Fragmentation
6. Unexpected Customer Use Cases
The cost of failure is high in QA. Time, money, and customer loyalty are all at risk when digital experiences don’t meet users’ high expectations.
Online media and entertainment companies face a tidal wave of content demand. Legacy infrastructure will be overwhelmed by the compute, storage and network demands. Businesses that make the right investment decisions and fine-tune performance can provide consumers with the user experience they expect.

At the end of the day, monitoring is all about finding problems before they cause issues for your users, and managing expectations when problems do crop up. Once critical and basic coverage is handled, start monitoring devices to keep everything tied together. If a switch, router, or hub goes down, or a printer starts having issues, you’ll know before the complaints start rolling in. When you automate recurring processes or tasks, your team can focus on delivering value instead of putting out fires.
