Business leaders are eager to leverage new technologies, and IT leaders can't afford to fall behind. Hybrid IT environments take advantage of private and public clouds but need enhanced security, automation, orchestration, and agility.
"Pressure on IT to deliver new functionality continues to drive faster software development cycles. While agility has always been important, today’s IT teams must operate in a hybrid environment where applications take various forms: legacy systems that remain on-prem, existing applications migrated to the cloud, and new applications built with cloud-native approaches. The combination makes for an increasingly complex IT landscape — one in which simply migrating to the cloud falls short.
Read this Google Cloud guide and learn how IT leaders can better meet today’s challenges by capitalizing on the historic shift toward open, connected environments."
"Cloud platforms are rewriting the way that companies work, serving as a vital foundation for digital transformation. Companies should brace for challenges that will need to be met as they transition from in-house systems to hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud, and public-cloud environments. Learn how an open-source strategy and consistent governance will help your company use multi-clouds to compete in the digital world.

For data-driven businesses, cloud can be a boon. Data can be found, processed and managed on the cloud without an investment in local hardware infrastructure, but what does that mean to information trust and governance? When data comes from cloud-based sources, IT needs a plan for data integration and security.
Download this insightful white paper and learn the four key priorities you must consider when developing your IT strategy to promote good hybrid information governance. Learn the blend of process, organizational and technical enablers that will allow you to move to a hybrid environment with speed and confidence.

All companies, small and large, grapple with infrastructure growth and IT modernization. For many companies, datacenter infrastructure has become an essential part of a hybrid cloud environment that allows users to consume internal and external resources seamlessly. This, in turn, is helping modernize today's datacenters and drive new levels of agility, productivity, and scale.
A common attribute of modern datacenter infrastructure is solutions that provide all compute and data services as a single system that can be managed holistically at a rack scale. IDC refers to such solutions as converged infrastructure.

The business case for hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) has never been stronger than it is in 2018. IT leaders are under the gun to modernize their infrastructures to accommodate hybrid cloud environments, unrestrained data growth, the Internet of Things (IoT), the consumerization of IT and a wide range of company-specific challenges.
Security is a looming issue for businesses. The threat landscape is increasing, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Emerging technologies like IoT, mobility, and hybrid IT environments now open new business opportunity, but they also introduce new risk. Protecting servers at the software level is no longer enough. Businesses need to reach down into the physical system level to stay ahead of threats. With today’s increasing regulatory landscape, compliance is more critical for both increasing security and reducing the cost of compliance failures. With these pieces being so critical, it is important to bring new levels of hardware protection and drive security all the way down to the supply chain level. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has a strategy to deliver this through its unique server firmware protection, detection, and recovery capabilities, as well as its HPE Security Assurance.
For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
The increasing demands of application and database workloads, growing numbers of virtual machines, and more powerful processors are driving demand for ever-faster storage systems. Increasingly, IT organizations are turning to solid-state storage to meet these demands, with hybrid and all-flash arrays taking the place of traditional disk storage for high performance workloads.

An optimized hybrid IT infrastructure enables innovative business outcomes—but rapid IT transformation also creates new risks, threats and vulnerabilities. Coupled with increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks and complex regulatory pressures, managing risk in today’s digital environment becomes even more critical to the enterprise.

Our client is a very well-known, long-established bank with over 13 million customers across the globe. Over the years, they had built up a large and complex technological legacy. The landscape included over 1,000 different applications residing on a complex architecture and a hybrid mix of technology, which made testing the non-production environment an increasingly difficult task for quality assurance (QA) teams. Testing environments were fragmented, and this was compounded by a lack of ownership, governance processes, and communication regarding the status of environment readiness; causing delays, extending time to market, and increasing cost.
