Don’t settle. Forward-thinking finance professionals know that there is a better way. Though BI tools have provided visibility to data, they have in fact failed to provide direct access to enterprise information. However, evolution does not stop there: Next-gen corporate performance management solutions are among us and promise to deliver interconnected, flexible, and realtime data access. Agility achieved.

IT leaders are now partners with business leaders, and they are tasked with helping companies respond to competitive pressures as quickly as possible. In an effort to improve overall IT agility, compute and application technology has evolved significantly through the use of mobility, virtualization and cloud computing. However, the network itself has yet to evolve, limiting the overall agility of IT today. These technology shifts have transformed almost every part of the enterprise. However, to maximize the potential of these investments, the network must also transform. Read more to learn how.

Scalability and affordability have extended video beyond the boardroom to meet the demands of a growing mobile workforce. Cloud-based video conferencing has enabled companies to realize the full benefits of video: fact-to-face contact, efficient knowledge transfers and a degree of personal interaction that's proven critical for businesses hoping to gain a competitive advantage.
By elevating the informal, sporadic practice to that of a business process supported by technology, leading organizations can ensure that their best thinking is applied at all times to optimizing their workforce.
Mobile workspaces fulfill the vision for anywhere, anytime flexibility and productivity. People are empowered to get their work done in an always-on, fully secure environment that follows them everywhere, on any device. With seamless access to all corporate resources—even on the same devices that hold their personal content—people can get their work done faster and better for optimal business impact. By achieving true enterprise mobility, the organization as a whole gains new levels of agility and performance. This paper discusses the elements to a complete mobile workspace solution.
This paper is the outcome of a series of in-depth interviews ESG analysts performed with senior IT professionals in various industries. The objective was to determine the direct and indirect value customers derive from using HP Converged Storage solutions to address their primary storage needs, and more specifically their returns on information—such as gaining more value from corporate data for better decisions; infrastructure—in the form of lowering costs and increasing infrastructure agility; and individuals—including time savings and reduced management complexity.
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.
In today’s hyperconnected world—with its multiple mobile devices, ubiquitous Internet access and pervasive social media platforms—people expect immediate access to information and services. These expectations are increasingly felt in corporate IT departments, where business units demand instant applications and fast services.
Virtualization and cloud computing can help corporate IT meet these demands by bringing more flexibility and agility to the environment. But the ultimate solution is to transform the way IT is delivered. Indeed, many enterprises have already started on the journey toward the IT as a service (ITaaS) model.
Learn why video conferencing will create more effective meetings, allowing for collaboration and communication, which will ultimately create value, spur innovation, and drive up efficiency while driving down costs.
In today’s business model, organizations must provide support and flexibility in addressing the needs of a growing mobile workforce, and interactions with external partners, suppliers, and clients. In short, today’s business model must look beyond corporate walls and extend their business processes and access to business information in an effective, and secure manner regardless of device type. In this way, cloud applications can be leveraged to enhance and extend business processes beyond their corporate walls and support the increasing use of mobile devices.
This paper presents the challenges and benefits of implementing an integrated cloud solution that provides the flexibility, agility, and security business organizations need to increase operational efficiency, and responsiveness.
Organizations face onboarding risks of BYOS (Bring Your Own Service) as they hire new employees that bring their own cloud services into the work environment. Risks facing IT and security teams include protecting corporate data and defending against modern threats. While IT and Security teams want to adopt modern cloud applications and increase business agility, they also want to implement visibility and monitoring to protect corporate data and comply to security policies. This session will highlight how new methodologies available today enable organizations to discover sanctioned and un-sanctioned cloud services that are being used within their organization, and how they can apply consistent security policies across the public and private cloud to protect corporate data and conform to compliance policies.
This paper is the outcome of a series of in-depth interviews ESG analysts performed with senior IT professionals in various industries. The objective was to determine the direct and indirect value customers derive from using HP backup, recovery, and archive solutions for information and more specifically their returns on: information—such as gaining more value from corporate data for better decisions; infrastructure—in the form of lowering costs and increasing infrastructure agility; and individuals—including time savings and reduced management complexity.

Improving data management is critical for streamlining regulatory reporting, monetizing customer analytics, and democratizing data-driven decision-making.
