Microsoft® recently researched the experience of nearly 200 companies with more than 250 PCs that have deployed one or more of the applications in the Microsoft Dynamics line of business management solutions. Among these companies, whose attitudes to technology tended to be more forward looking than usual, a common issue was growth via mergers and acquisitions (M&A). The pain points most often cited were non-integrated, overlapping systems, an inability to scale to support growth, the need for more functionality, and a lack of operational insight. This white paper explores the experience of these companies in more detail to help you understand how you can use Microsoft Dynamics to support your company’s growth via M&A and drive business success.

Class of Service (CoS) functionality can help optimize network performance. For a successful deployment, network designers should identify all applications, understand requirements associated with each application, designate appropriate mapping for groups of applications and provide mechanisms in the underlying network to deliver CoS. CoS mapping and deployment are important; adhering to tested strategies and avoiding common misconceptions helps IT managers advance optimization across the wide area network.

This paper examines that there are all sorts of elements—differing applications, attitudes, budgets, outcomes for the business—that go into the decision of how much and what type of solid-state storage to use. And how this large range of use cases inherently means that users are going to need a portfolio of solid-state deployment options because no single product is going to solve everything for everyone. The paper then examines NetApp’s flash portfolio and belief that the right storage solution at all times balances performance, capacity, functionality and manageability: this means that for flash too, multiple approaches will become the standard for enterprises as they evolve their long-term IT strategies.

The increasing user-friendliness of cloud computing is making it more accessible to users as they better understand its capabilities and realize how easy and affordable it can be. As cloud infrastructure has started offering a wider range of storage functionality, IT professionals are finding that they can make use of the benefits it provides both operationally and financially. But achieving this optimum result is neither easy nor prevalent; awareness of the upside can sometimes blind prospective users to the potholes and blind curves on the road to cloud storage bliss. This paper assumes at least a general awareness of the methods and advantages of cloud storage, and perhaps even an acknowledgement that it is a natural infrastructure development, and is therefore designed to provide pragmatic advice to help with specific deployment choices.
