Do you have your arms around your Windows Server 2003 migration?
Sure, your team has probably headed up countless maintenance initiatives in the past - upgrades, refreshes, migrations. But if you make the mistake of thinking your Windows Server 2003 migration is more of the same, you will lose on two fronts. First, you will underestimate the complexity of the effort, thus increasing the chance of failure by overrunning timeline and budget. More importantly, you will miss the opportunity to bring value to your business. This paper introduces five considerations that will change your perspective on the Windows Server migration initiative - and spur technical, finance and line of business employees to jump on board.

While the inevitable move to Windows 7 has been on the horizon for IT departments for several years, it’s clear that migration projects continue to plague many IT professionals. RES Software commissioned its second Windows 7 migration survey in June 2012 to assess the progress of these implementations in relation to a previous benchmarking survey issued in 2010. The most recent survey captures data from more than 330 IT professionals in North America and Europe across multiple industries and job functions. The results have been analysed and are highlighted within this research brief.
IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.

The migration from a traditional enterprise IT infrastructure architecture with separate servers,
separate traditional SAN, and separate hyperscale public cloud to an integrated hyperconverged
architecture including Server SAN and an integrated hybrid cloud is a profound change. Wikibon
explores the premise that the migration is justified, and the optimum hybrid cloud strategy is to
use the same architecture and software for both the on-premises True Private Cloud and the
public cloud services. Wikibon uses the term “True Hybrid Cloud” to describe this approach.

Moving major, business-supporting applications to the cloud can be a challenge for a variety of reasons. You may have concerns about the physical migration of data, as data loss or business disruption stemming from a migration issue would be a disaster for the business. Security is another typical concern, as a data breach of your most sensitive applications—like SAP or Oracle— could prove highly damaging. Akin to security, data sovereignty is an issue for many businesses. Stringent compliance laws in some jurisdictions are dictating data “residency”; and in the cloud, it is not always clear where the data is housed.
Among managed cloud service users, 68% state that using such services helps them to better manage resource allocation and make SAP and Oracle costs more predictable.
In this paper, we will look at common concerns over deploying and optimally managing business-critical, legacy applications in the cloud. We consider the benefits of managed cloud services, and how your

An online transformation is changing how the world’s most successful B2B companies engage buyers, acquire customers and drive ongoing revenue. To survive this transformation, today’s B2B e-commerce sites must do more than simply exist as a portal for selling products; they must be compelling, relevant and simplify the buying process. This eBook examines the factors and impact of this migration, and describes seven best practices for adapting and succeeding in this new era.
Data center migrations are often complex and risky. These best practices will help I&O leaders invest the appropriate amount of time and money into planning, execution and testing in order to protect the business and maximize the chances of a successful data center migration.
In considering the four principal options of data center modernization, keep in mind that each option need not be treated as a separate and distinct approach. Data center stakeholders may want to combine options in order to better accommodate a particular migration timeline. Or cautious executives may want to simply dabble with the outsourcing option by piloting only a few select applications while still maintaining a core corporate data center. The key critical success factor is the recognition that data center modernization is not a one-time fi x, but rather a critical piece of an ongoing strategy to better service customers.
Most successful data center migration projects share similar practices, such as expertise, preparation, management, execution, communication and business alignment. The purpose of this research is not to provide an extensive examination of each one of these practices. Rather, it is to provide a pragmatic list of best practices. This list was derived from observations of numerous Gartner clients involved in data center migration projects over the last six years.
Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.
