Many organizations have adopted virtualization as a standard for server workloads. But virtualization has not proven to be the “game changer” many organizations had envisioned. IT departments face huge challenges related to server sprawl, which has actually increased with virtualization.

What you don't know could hurt your bottom line
Let’s begin with a question: Do you know who is behind the wheel? The reality is that for many enterprises with employees who drive as part of their job, the answer is, “I think so,” or maybe, “no.” Driver risk management has recently become a top issue for many organizations since it directly affects budgets and the bottom line. The fact that there are more than 100 million people driving for work-related activities on U.S. roads and many of them have invalid, suspended or no driver’s license at all should be cause enough for concern. But combining this with the facts that:
• most organizations’ budgets are at best flat
• P&C insurance rates are rising 14% every 2 years
• 90% of crashes are due to human error
• there are fewer qualified drivers available today
• the number of lawsuits around negligence are skyrocketing
• and it becomes clear that understanding exposure to driver risk is imperative for every organization.

Businesses are overwhelmed with data; it’s a blessing and a curse. A curse because it can overwhelm traditional approaches to storing and processing it. A blessing because the data promises business insight that never existed earlier. The industry has spawned a new term, “big data,” to describe it. Now, IT itself is overwhelmed with its own big data. In the press to roll out new services and technologies—mobility, cloud, virtualization—applications, networks, and physical and virtual servers grow in a sprawl. With them comes an unprecedented volume of data such as logs, events, and flows. It takes too much time and resources to sift through it, so most of it lies unexplored and unexploited. Yet like business data, it contains insight that can help us solve problems, make decisions, and plan for the future.
