Jusqu’à présent, les améliorations du datacenter se sont limitées à la réduction des coûts et à des solutions ponctuelles. La consolidation des serveurs, le Cloud computing, la virtualisation et l’implémentation de stockage Flash ont contribué à réduire la prolifération des serveurs, ainsi que les coûts de personnel et d’installations associés. Regroupant ressources de calcul, de stockage et de réseau au sein d’une même solution, les systèmes convergés se révèlent particulièrement efficaces dans la baisse des dépenses de personnel et de fonctionnement. Ces systèmes définis par logiciel (software-defined) exigent peu d’interventions humaines. Le code intégré dans le logiciel configure le matériel et automatise de nombreux processus autrefois manuels, ce qui réduit considérablement le risque d’erreurs humaines. Ensemble, ces technologies ont permis aux entreprises d’améliorer progressivement les processus et stratégies d’engagement client et de prestation de services.
Linux has become an important component of
the organization's infrastructure since initial deployment
around six years ago. The Linux infrastructure was first
used for classic edge-of-network workloads but has

The digital workspace has arrived, and the most progressive organizations are taking action. To thrive in this digital environment, organizations need to embrace strategies that better prepare them for success in the growing digital economy. Understandably, this means working toward becoming highly mobile enterprises. Throughout this process, an organization’s technology partner choices can play a pivotal role in achieving business goals. As such, stability and scalability are taking center stage. This is why a forward-looking solution can empower an organization to move away from standalone enterprise mobility management (EMM) to the digital workspace.
In this white paper, we’ll take a look at how the mobility ecosystem is evolving and how organizations can push the boundaries of enterprise mobility while making the most of their investments.

Understanding, managing and containing risk has become a critical factor for many organizations
as they plot their hybrid architecture strategy. Access by an expanding array of privileged identities
looms large as a risk concern once organizations look beyond tactically using cloud services for cost
and agility efficiencies. Existing approaches developed for static infrastructure can address initial
risk concerns, but fall short in providing consistent policy enforcement and continuous visibility for
dynamic, distributed infrastructure.
Multiple elements factor into how effectively an enterprise can embrace automation and advance the maturity of their transformation. However, security tools are central to enabling a structured and measured approach to managing critical access risks at each stage of the maturity model journey. With the right privileged access platform and set of tools, enterprises can progressively automate and scale access management to align risk

Why is this a problem? First, effective tracking is reliant on the
consistent, complete application of campaign tracking codes and
associated metadata, which has traditionally been a manual, ungoverned
process. Adding to this complexity has been the dramatic
expansion of digital marketing point solutions, and the disparate
teams expected to execute across each of these channels and geographies.
The result is what you would expect—highly inaccurate,
incomplete, and inconsistent data that must be manually cleaned
before reporting is possible.
Fortunately a solution exists. Progressive marketing leaders are
implementing Digital Experience Data Management (DXDM), ensuring

The Auburn-Washburn School District provides public education to approximately 5,300 Kindergarten through 12th graders in Topeka, KS. It consists of 128 square miles of rural and suburban areas. Descriptive terms like academically challenging, progressive, small classes, high-achievement, modern and excellent are all used to describe the district.
Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity.
This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”
