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.
This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance.
After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes.
It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.
This Porter Consulting report analyzes enterprise campus networking solutions from Aruba Networks, Cisco, HP and Ruckus Wireless. The paper examines key business and technology trends affecting enterprises with 500-5000 employees. We identify fundamental requirements IT decision makers should consider when evaluating campus networking solutions including:
• Ensuring simple, secure and cost-effective user access
• Supplying adequate bandwidth and quality of service
• Streamlining deployment and operations
• Supporting emerging standards and technology requirements
Our goal is to provide business and technical decision makers with a guide to the key players and their strengths.
Technology leaders need to rethink strategic
planning in the age of the customer. Technology
strategies are too often just collections of loosely
related project plans and too focused on tech
project delivery milestones. Strategies designed
“by IT, for IT” fail to engage business leaders and
executives because they don’t explain how tech
strategy leads to better customer experience and
outcomes. This report explains how technology
leaders can create a strategic tech plan that is
customer-led, insights-driven, fast, and connected.

Technology is quickly moving to the forefront of business priorities as organizations undertake digital and IT transformation projects that enable strategic differentiation in a world where users leverage applications and data in new ways. Organizations in all industries must better align with changing customer preferences to avoid being disrupted by a new crop of nimble competitors. Technology will increasingly determine how businesses define and distinguish themselves in the market. IDC has noted that most organizations were not born digital but instead have legacy business processes, applications, and infrastructure that require modernization and automation. As a result, businesses must embark on an IT transformation initiative to modernize and automate their legacy infrastructure to prime themselves to achieve their digital business goals and initiatives.

Customer insights professionals face the challenging task of delivering contextually relevant experiences across the customer life cycle. They need to work with their business technology counterparts to integrate enterprise marketing technologies that manage customer data, provide real-time analytics and insights, and automate cross-channel interactions. Here is where Real-Time Interaction Management (RTIM) is critical, according to The Forrester Wave™: Real-Time Interaction Management, Q3 2015 report, which identified the 11 most significant technology providers in this space across 35 criteria. Forrester defines RTIM as “Enterprise marketing technology that delivers contextually relevant experiences, value, and utility at the appropriate moment in the customer life cycle via preferred customer touchpoints,” and identifies Pegasystems as one a leader in this very diversified pack.

It’s a bold claim; one that hasn’t always been accepted as truth. In the not so distant
past, digital security was seen as a cost center. Those days are gone.
Security is essential to the success of any digital business. If there is one thing you
can always count on, however, it’s that security-related incursions are inevitable. And
it’s news to no one to say that these disruptions can have dire consequences beyond
downtime. Security breaches erode trust and damage reputation.
Simply put, there’s no longer a choice. As a CIO, CISO, or other security or IT leader,
you know it’s your job to be the central agent stressing the connections between
business and digital risk. It’s your responsibility to find the talent and technology to
ensure the protection of your digital assets.
