Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.

In recent years, it seems like technology is changing faster than it used to in decades past. As employees devour newer technologies such as smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other devices, and as they become more comfortable with solutions such as Dropbox and Skype, their demands on enterprise IT intensify. Plus, management and other decision makers are also increasing their demands on enterprise IT to provide more infrastructure with less cost and time. Unfortunately, enterprise IT organizations often don’t see much, if any, associated increases in funding to accomodate these demands.

L’infrastructure Cloud, vous avez dû vous y mettre au début en prenant beaucoup de précaution… Vous avez probablement limité votre périmètre à un provisionnement rapide ou à une diminution des coûts matériels ou opérationnels.
Mais comment résister aux avantages de cette technologie ? Le cloud continue d’évoluer et de gagner en crédibilité dans tous les secteurs d’activité. Aujourd’hui, nous attendons de tous les systèmes d’entreprise qu’ils intègrent les avantages du cloud.
All’inizio, probabilmente avrai scelto di adottare l’infrastruttura cloud con una certa prudenza, limitandoti a un approvvigionamento rapido o alla riduzione dei costi operativi o delle macchine.
Ma come resistere ai vantaggi di questo nuovo modo di fruire della tecnologia? Il cloud continua a evolvere e a conquistare credibilità in tutti i settori. Oggi, ci aspettiamo che ogni sistema aziendale possa beneficiare dei vantaggi del cloud.
I progressi nel campo digitale rivoluzionano in profondità il nostro modo di lavorare, introducendo innovazioni nei nostri uffici praticamente ogni giorno. Queste tecnologie hanno alzato il livello delle aspettative, costringendo le aziende a operare con un'agilità senza precedenti.
Questi cambiamenti sono grandi opportunità, ma purtroppo ci imbattiamo anche in nuovi ostacoli che possono intralciare la nostra marcia verso il successo, come la necessità di innovare rapidamente, di minimizzare i costi e di reagire prontamente alle pressioni della concorrenza.
La tecnologia IaaS, un tempo vista con scetticismo da molti responsabili IT, viene oggi adottata da molte aziende, che trasferiscono sul cloud i workload e accantonano l’architettura locale che prima ritenevano indispensabile.
Nonostante i vantaggi in termini di prestazioni, flessibilità e opportunità di innovazione sperimentati dagli utenti che già hanno adottato questa tecnologia, alcune aziende ritardano la migrazione per paura del cambiamento.
Les avancées du numérique révolutionnent la manière dont nous travaillons, en apportant des innovations de façon permanente dans notre quotidien de travail. Ces technologies très prisées ont renforcé les attentes, obligeant les organisations à développer l'agilité métier à des niveaux sans précédent.
Même si les opportunités annoncées sont prometteuses, nous sommes confrontés à de nouveaux freins qui peuvent faire obstacle à la réussite, comme la nécessité d'innover rapidement, de minimiser les coûts et de répondre rapidement aux pressions exercées par la concurrence.
Pour réussir dans le contexte concurrentiel actuel, les entreprises doivent se liberer des limites inhérentes à leurs infrastructures informatiques existantes. L’époque de l’achat de matériel et de la gestion d’énormes centres de données pour faire fonctionner les systèmes informatiques est en train de prendre fin. La gestion et la maintenance des infrastructures sont tout simplement trop coûteuses.
Digital developments are forever shaping the way we work, bringing new innovations through our office doors almost every day. These high-demand technologies have increased expectations, with organizations now having to drive business agility at unprecedented levels.
Although we’re presented with enormous opportunity, we also face new obstacles that can block the path to success; obstacles such as the need to innovate quickly, keep costs down, and actively respond to competitive pressures.
To succeed in today’s competitive reality, businesses need to free themselves from the limitations of legacy IT infrastructure. The days of purchasing hardware and maintaining massive data centers to run IT must come to an end. Managing and maintaining your infrastructure is simply too expensive.
Explanation of the Oracle IaaS solutions and cases studies.
IT departments are under constant pressure to do more with less. Now, as well as keeping the lights on, they are expected to deliver projects that create real business value. As more businesses use digital technologies to disrupt their markets, this pressure is intensifying.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is evolving against this background. Initially, it caught CIOs’ attention because it helped them cut costs. Today, IaaS underpins organizations’ agility in the face of disruption and drives innovation-led growth.
DPI software is made to inspect packets at high wire speeds and a critical factor is the throughput and resources required. Keeping the amount of resources that integrated DPI and application classification technology requires low is critical. The fewer cores (on a multi-core processor) and the less on-board memory an engine needs, the better. Multi-threading provides almost linear scalability on multi-core systems. In addition, highly-optimized flow tracking is required for handling millions of concurrent subscribers.
When Barracuda first engaged with Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity in 2007, enterprises were more concerned about the unauthorized use of Skype, other P2P applications and instant messaging. Although the need for application control and awareness remains, enterprise concerns are shifting to securing enterprise applications hosted in private and public clouds, protecting east-west data center traffic and preventing unwanted traffic and malware on the corporate network.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.

Spreadsheets are good for number crunching – but many professionals use them to do things they were never meant for. The result? Long office hours, chasing down status updates, and compiling data manually. Learn the 5 signs of spreadsheet misuse and how to overcome them in this webcast.
Hyperconvergence has been receiving a tremendous amount of attention because it represents the next step in the evolution of IT resource delivery. This technology takes the idea of integrating compute, storage and networking that started with converged systems design and has improved on those architectures by adding deeper levels of abstraction and automation. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) vendors promise simplified operation and the ability to quickly and easily expand capacity by deploying and launching additional modules; simplicity has been the key selling point for the HCI pioneers.
As HCI ventures even deeper into the enterprise and cloud environments, the architectures will need to become more efficient, agile and adaptable to help IT professionals shoulder the burden of rapidly growing data sets and workloads. This report discusses the benefits of HCI and the enhancements that must be
made to expand HCI deeper into the mainstream enterprise datacenter.
