The new, more accessible workplace needs to be, in a word, manageable. This IBM white paper examines how today's workplace can ultimately help create greater enterprise value and offers best practice for how to best harness a flexible workplace to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of enterprises and institutions.
For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.
To compete in today’s fast-paced business climate, enterprises need
accurate and frequent sales and customer reports to make real-time
operational decisions about pricing, merchandising and inventory
management. They also require greater agility to respond to business
events as they happen, and more visibility into business activities so
information and systems are optimized for peak efficiency and performance.
By making use of data capture and business intelligence to
integrate and apply data across the enterprise, organizations can capitalize
on emerging opportunities and build a competitive advantage.
The IBM® data replication portfolio is designed to address these issues
through a highly flexible one-stop shop for high-volume, robust, secure
information replication across heterogeneous data stores.
The portfolio leverages real-time data replication to support high
availability, database migration, application consolidation, dynamic
warehousing, master data management (MDM), service

It’s all too easy for CIOs and technology management to build a strategy around any new technology area that is focused on delivering lower technology costs and greater operational efficiency. However, to get your cloud strategy right, you have to learn to move away from measuring the success of change against technology management care-abouts and focus on the priorities of the business. Forrester’s Business Technographics® surveys show a stark disconnect between technology management’s and the business’ desired outcomes from cloud computing; embracing the shift to cloud services means driving and measuring its success against metrics defined by the business before those of IT. This report outlines the strategic plan of Forrester’s solution for CIOs working on cloud computing. This report is designed to help you onboard the business to your cloud strategy.
Cloud is coming of age: It’s no longer just a tool for business efficiency; it’s necessary for the speed and agility required to compete in the digital economy. Until recently, CIOs have considered Cloud deployments in terms of Public versus Private Cloud merits, but the answer needs to be both. It’s a new way of thinking—and a new model for enterprise IT, creating an application delivery engine that drives digital transformation.
A hardware and software system specifically designed for the database software to optimize database operations, both for performance and administrative simplicity. An environment that supports workload consolidation, thereby reducing the number of physical servers required for the databases in question.
Benefits: Reduced cost and optimal performance.

HR processes are changing. And, with the global skills crisis, HR Directors are struggling to attract and retain the best talent. Their departments are in flux, and 77% of organisations report a perceived lack of strategic value from HR.* If you’re going to win the war for talent, your organisation will need to make a radical change. It must transform its HR and become a People Company, utilising people data and analytics to make decisions based on real evidence. This will improve the way you interact with current and future employees, providing great workforce experiences. The result will be a more committed and engaged workforce, and increased interest in joining your organisation. From a business perspective too, you’ll benefit through higher levels of productivity, efficiency and improved performance and engagement.

Threats have become a board-level concern and it’s fueled a spending spree in security products over the last two years. So why don’t companies feel more prepared to identify and respond to these threats?
For many organizations, disconnected point solutions have increased the complexity of their security environments, making it difficult to respond quickly to threats – and nearly impossible to demonstrate ROI.
IBM Security commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of security complexity and the effect it is having on security efficiency and effectiveness. In the study, many respondents reported taking steps to simplify their security environments and the results are promising. Fill out this form to read more about it.
Quocirca surveyed over 300 organisations across the UK, France, Germany, the Nordics, Benelux, Italy, Iberia and Israel on their attitudes to cloud-based services. The research revealed that cost is not the only thing driving the adoption of cloud services; improved efficiency and easier external interaction are also important. Another finding was that impediments to cloud adoption vary significantly by industry. A key finding was that “cloud enthusiasts” are more aware of, and likely to invest in, security technologies like identity and access management than “cloud avoiders”.
