Microsoft Exchange Server has been a crucial technological breakthrough in advanced corporate communication systems. Companies who utilize an enterprise-class email server like Exchange believe that email is mission critical, and value the productivity it enables. But an in-house migration to Exchange 2007 from an earlier version of Exchange or another email program will not be an easy task. Complexity, time and cost issues loom large over the IT department and are causing IT directors to search for an alternative solution.

There is a misperception that cloud is more expensive. It's a common error and is largely a result of applying premises-based best-practices when comparing solution alternatives. Because standard TCO studies often fail to properly value key strengths of cloud-delivered services, they can lead decision-makers astray.
YouSendIt is a Web-based secure digital file delivery company, which lets users securely send, receive and track files on demand.

The native archiving capabilities in Microsoft Exchange 2013 are useful and represent a reasonable evolution of the archiving features and functions that were initially offered in Exchange 2010. However, for many regulated companies or those subject to a lot of litigation, the native archiving capabilities of Microsoft Exchange are not enough. They need to be supplemented with third-party archiving tools. Download now and learn more!
Despite the range of functionality offered in Office 365, like any cloud-based offering, it cannot be all things to all customers. There are features missing in Office 365 that will prompt some customers to consider the use of third-party, cloud-based, or on-premise tools to enhance Office 365’s native capabilities. Specifically, these third-party enhancements are focused primarily on the security, archiving, and encryption capabilities built into Office 365. Read now!

Despite a number of compelling reasons to move away from annual plans and budgets, many CFOs are reluctant to make the change. They fail to recognize that there are alternative (and less dysfunctional) ways of driving performance improvement and making managers accountable for performance. CFOs need to implement systems that provide managers at every level with the capability to make fast, well-informed decisions. They need to replace annual planning cycles with more regular business reviews that enable managers to see trends, patterns, and "breaks in the curve" long before the competition.

If your company operates in the cloud, you’ve probably thought about investing in a Cloud Management Platform (CMP) — a group of integrated products that manage public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. That combination is what AHEAD calls an Enterprise Cloud. For an enterprise with a heavy private cloud emphasis, the right CMP can transform your VM provisioning, reducing a potentially weeks-long manual process to an automated one that finishes in a matter of minutes. And if you run one or more public clouds, the right CMP can help you take better control of your cloud services, manage your cloud spending, and architect your app platforms to run seamlessly in the cloud.
So Which CMP Will Work Best For You?
The first thing to consider is compatibility with your existing environment. For many enterprises, that’s going to put a premium on CMPs that integrate natively with VMware. For other businesses, compatibility with ServiceNow or support for multiple private and public clouds wi
Many enterprises have
VMware tools into their
environments and are now
looking to reap the benefits of
the cloud. But this migration
isn’t as easy as flipping a
switch, especially if you’re
looking to continue running
your VMware environment.
The ability to utilize your
existing VMware tools on
an AWS platform can result
in a more cost-effective,
simplified cloud experience,
allowing organizations to
begin their cloud journey by
moving workloads closer to
native cloud services. In this
document, we will review
ideal use cases for VMware

Email has become today's most mission-critical communication channel. Each and every day, 800 million business users worldwide use email during the course of their work day and about 80 percent of a company's intellectual property passes though its email server. Email is a vital component of both internal communication between employees and external communication with customers and business partners. It has become such an integral part of normal day-to-day business operations that most companies simply cannot function without it: when email stops, your ability to conduct business also stops.
Since SAP introduced its in-memory database, SAP HANA, customers have significantly accelerated everything from their core business operations to big data analytics. But capitalizing on SAP HANA’s full potential requires computational power and memory capacity beyond the capabilities of many existing data center platforms.
To ensure that deployments in the AWS Cloud could meet the most stringent SAP HANA demands, AWS collaborated with SAP and Intel to deliver the Amazon EC2 X1 and X1e instances, part of the Amazon EC2 Memory-Optimized instance family. With four Intel® Xeon® E7 8880 v3 processors (which can power 128 virtual CPUs), X1 offers more memory than any other SAP-certified cloud native instance available today.
IDC’s research has shown the movement of most IT workloads to the cloud in the coming years. Yet, with all the talk about enterprises moving to the cloud, some of them still wonder if such a move is really cost effective and what business benefits may result. While the answers to such questions vary from workload to workload, one area attracting particular attention is that of the data warehouse.
Many enterprises have substantial investments in data warehousing, with an ongoing cost to managing that resource in terms of software licensing, maintenance fees, operational costs, and hardware. Can it make sense to move to a cloud-based alternative? What are the costs and benefits? How soon can such a move pay itself off?
