Data conversations continue to change as all businesses are trying to figure out today's reality of the move to the cloud, anywhere/anytime computing, and the explosive growth of data. These trends have drastically reshaped the IT industry and data management forever. With continued market innovations in storage, cloud, and hyper-converged infrastructures, there are six key modern IT needs that are increasingly the focus of CIO and technology leaders.
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.
Organizations looking to implement desktop and app virtualization traditionally play a guessing game where storage is concerned. When considering local and physical storage, determining what would be necessary for the virtualized world is difficult and can be overwhelming. This is especially true when determining how virtualizing desktops will impact the storage architecture. Organizations risk over sizing their environment thereby wasting CapEx, or under-sizing and potentially ruining the user experience. Software-defined storage solutions, such as VMware Virtual SAN, provide simplified solutions with high performance data stores that offer fine-grained scalability with linearly-predictable performance as demand grows. Dell’s validated and certified desktop virtualization solutions incorporate vSphere and Virtual SAN, and provide a complete end-to-end solution that allows companies to grow and expand without large capital investments in SAN hardware.

How retailers around the world rate their digital experience abilities
Where they’ll prioritize digital investments, and why mobile tops the list
Why they said VR and AR are the most exciting engagement strategies
The cloud, virtualization, and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) help make IT's life easier — and the whole organization more agile — but each of these features also presents serious security challenges. Although there is no one-size-fits-all solution to managing security in the enterprise 2.0 world, the enhanced security features and user-centric offerings in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 make security a much more comfortable proposition for IT. Read this technology brief to learn how Windows Server 2012 helps to mitigate risks and streamline compliance, as well.
Data is the lifeblood of your business. To compete in today’s global information economy, you need to keep your IT systems up and running and provide consistent and reliable access to
business-critical applications at all times. Application downtime or slow performance can mean diminished employee productivity, dissatisfied customers, and lost revenue.
But keeping pace with change and managing growth can be a real challenge. Increasing numbers of applications, evolving technology, and rapid data growth are pushing older IT
infrastructure to the limit—demanding more storage and bandwidth, greater security and agility, and higher availability than ever before.
The identity and access management challenges that exist in the physical world - identity management, application security, access control, managing sensitive data, user activity logging, and compliance reporting - are even more critical in the virtual environments that are growing in use as IT seeks to streamline its operations and reduce operating costs. However, security risks are increased due to the nature of the virtualization environment and IT should seek to extend their security solutions from the physical server environment to the virtualization environment as seamlessly as possible.

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is giving organizations the agility to respond quickly to demand for new products, services and applications. Many organisations begin their HCI journey by targeting specific use cases such as virtual desktop infrastructure, disaster recovery and remote office-branch office environments. But HCI continues to evolve far beyond these use cases.
In this case study, we look at real world deployments to identify how HCI is helping businesses to reduce TCO, improve scalability and rapidly adopt new technologies.

Mobile devices enable workers to take care of business from virtually anywhere, at any time. But, what’s the catch? Mobile, social media-savvy employees and customers may be more likely to become identity fraud victims.
Anytime, anywhere access to work is now a basic need for the modern workforce. Whether remote, in the field or in the office, workers are no longer physically connected to your network or data center. Today’s employees work in a digital workspace that features virtualized laptops, desktop and workstations; a variety of personal systems and smart devices that may be part of BYOD programs and a diverse app ecosystem with desktop, remote, mobile, SaaS and Universal apps. In this mobile-cloud world, new and unpredictable forms of malicious software continue to evolve. Traditional network security, perimeter protection and firewalls are no longer enough to combat these new threats to the corporate IT infrastructure and company data integrity.
Organizations that automate their highly-virtualized infrastructure environments discover that they are able to introduce new forms of self-service and on-demand IT delivery models. As a result, they’re far better positioned to compete in a world where the quality and performance of applications increasingly dictates success and failure.
On the journey to agility, the ultimate destination remains infrastructure defined by software and operating in a way that’s both application-aware and self-healing. For enterprises competing in the digital economy, deploying a CMP to manage increasingly complex infrastructure has become an indispensable part of that journey.
