ESG recently conducted a quantitative research study to assess companies’ IT Transformation maturity. ESG found that operating a modern server environment, defined as an environment in which operations tasks are more automated than manual, led to a perception of cost parity with the public cloud. Nearly half felt their cost of compute was highly competitive with CSPs and another 48% felt it was generally comparable. This compares favorably to the 19% and 47% respectively among organizations running a legacy server environment. Download this solution brief from Dell EMC and Intel® to learn more.
Organizations in the global industrial products industry face significant challenges: cost pressures, increased regulations, disruptive technologies and the increasingly costly delivery of raw resources. High volatility in commodity prices has put severe pressure on company margins and can quickly expose inefficient operations.
To become more effective, enterprises must fast-track projects to digitally connect their organizations. Building value and providing compelling customer experiences at lower cost requires more than a quick technology fix; it demands a business and technological commitment to a new target operating model (TOM). This operating model should offer a way of running the organization that combines digital technologies and operational capabilities to achieve improvements in revenue, customer experience and cost. Enabling digital capabilities via the TOM is an ongoing process that requires DevOps skills and agile development techniques. This is easier to achieve with partners that have the requisite capabilities to help with the creation of new digital assets

A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
The key benefit of creating a case management methodology is to multiply its effectiveness by replicating it across the organization's patient-facing departments, practices and functions. In this way, your organization can reduce costs, increase quality and streamline its operations.
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.
As the global business world shifts to all digital, real-time operations, the legacy two-tier ERP architecture so many businesses have relied on to bridge headquarters with subsidiaries can no longer compete effectively. A simple and comprehensive answer exists in SAP S/4HANA. Available in cloud and on-premise, SAP S/4HANA gives organizations the ability to utilize the same product family across a multi-tier deployment.

"Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms are a relatively new phenomenon, and they go far beyond
the remote monitoring systems of a prior generation. Three key features differentiate cloud-based
predictive analytics — data sharing, scope of monitoring, and use of artificial intelligence/machine
learning (AI/ML) to drive autonomous operations. To help familiarize the uninitiated with specifically
what types of value these systems can drive, IDC discusses them at some length in this white paper."
