Deep learning opens up new worlds of possibility in artificial intelligence, enabled by advances in computational capacity, the explosion in data, and the advent of deep neural networks. But data is evolving quickly and legacy storage systems are not keeping up. Advanced AI applications require a modern all-flash storage infrastructure that is built specifically to work with high-powered analytics.
Managing technology refreshes is not a popular task among enterprise storage administrators, although it is a necessary task for successful businesses. As a business evolves, managing more data and adding new applications in the process, enterprise storage infrastructure inevitably needs to grow in performance and capacity. Enterprise storage solutions have traditionally imposed limitations in terms of their ability to easily accommodate technology refreshes that keep infrastructure current and operating reliably and most cost effectively. In 2015, Pure Storage introduced a new technology refresh model that has driven strong change in the enterprise storage industry by addressing the major pain points of legacy models and provided overall a much more cost-effective life-cycle management approach. In conjunction with other aspects of Pure Storage's enterprise storage product and services offerings, the company's "Evergreen Storage" technology refresh model has contributed to this all-f
Cloud- based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on- premises data with new third- party cloud- based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.

For increasing numbers of 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.
This paper outlines what readers should consider when
making a strategic commitment to a database platform that
will act as a bridge from legacy environments to the cloud.
Today’s Outdated State of ERP
When was the last time you upgraded your ERP system? Not just patched, fixed or tinkered with it—but implemented a substantive upgrade that enabled real business innovation, generated excitement and unleashed a wave of ideas and productivity from your users? You know—the same kinds of enthusiasm that greets web or iPhone apps like Instagram, Spotify, Netflix, etc.?
If you’re like your peers, then the answer is “not in recent memory.” In fact, according to Forrester, “approximately half of ERP customers are on releases that are two versions behind the current release, which may be four years old or more.”

Online media and entertainment companies face a tidal wave of content demand. Legacy infrastructure will be overwhelmed by the compute, storage and network demands. Businesses that make the right investment decisions and fine-tune performance can provide consumers with the user experience they expect.
Download Intel's latest eGuide, ‘Thriving in Today’s Media and Entertainment Economy' to discover:
• Expectations for the growth of the streaming media industry over the next few years
• Consumer expectations for high-quality media experiences
• How to defend against hacking with upgraded infrastructure
• The predicted effects of 5G on the media and entertainment landscape
• The infrastructure upgrades required to keep up with these demands
Let’s just get to the core of the issue: The customer experience (CX) is broken.
Legacy technology is way behind and it creates a distorted view of the customer. Though it provides behavioral, demographic, and preference data, most martech doesn’t link important data silos together to deliver the bold multichannel experience always-on customers want.
How can marketers stay competitive in a data-driven world with outdated technology behind their decision-making?
Simple. They can’t.
In order to course correct the customer experience, marketers need: • The ability to build a holistic customer view that incorporates preferences, behaviors, and personalization across multiple devices and channels • A way to manage B2B and B2C CX at every touchpoint
Can your technology do all this?
Let’s look into that.
Although typically thought of as an artifact of legacy computing, batch processes remain vital to today’s real-time enterprises. Behind the real time systems that power the real time enterprise, such as customer order fulfillment, account management, supply chain scheduling and optimization, or financial trading systems, are regularly-updated back office business systems. Over the years, batch technology has evolved from script-based automation to rules or policy-driven workload automation.
Companies running legacy job scheduling products suffer from higher costs, inefficient use of resources, and greater IT complexity, according to independent analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates. Read their findings, and see why consolidating on a single, comprehensive workload automation solution is an easy win for IT and the business.

More than 75% of business leaders say their current ERP system doesn’t meet their requirements, let alone future plans. To enable today’s data-driven organization, the very foundation from which you are operating needs to be re-established; it needs to be “modernized”. To help you navigate your own journey to modernization, we’ve crafted this handbook series to share the knowledge gained working with many thousands of companies using both legacy and modern ERP systems.

As a strategic partner in your business, you face increasing demands from your line-of-business leaders for new functionality and advanced capabilities, which you must deliver with a constrained IT budget. What could you do to meet these expectations and add value to the business if you could contain costs, increase operational efficiency, and do more with less?
You need to overcome several challenges. The cost of software licensing management is rising as a result of maintaining proprietary platforms or legacy technology, making it difficult to modernize your datacenter and migrate to more cost-effective solutions. You’re likely burdened by regulatory compliance mandates, which create enforcement, reporting, and auditing expenses.
And, like 67% of IT organizations, your budget is probably shrinking.

"Security-conscious organizations face a gap between current
requirements and capabilities as they relate to data masking. Data volumes are growing exponentially and the risk of data leaks continues to make news, yet many organizations rely on inefficient, legacy approaches to protecting sensitive data. In contrast, top performing companies are turning to virtual databases and service-based masking solutions to ensure that data management functions can keep up with software development.
IDC’s research shows enterprises around the world are using multicloud strategies
to optimize the performance of modern and existing legacy applications running
on-premises, in public cloud services, and on legacy systems. In the early days of
enterprise cloud adoption, many organizations focused their cloud strategies on
enabling net-new cloud-native applications written to take advantage of dynamic cloud
infrastructure and pay-as-you-go consumption-based cost models. Early success with
these implementations is convincing more and more enterprises to expand their cloud
footprint and to migrate existing applications to cloud in order to enhance end-user
experiences, optimize cloud resource utilization and costs, and create a more flexible
and agile business environment.
