Current methods for accessing complex, distributed information delay decisions and, even worse, provide incomplete insight. This paper details the impact of Unified Information Access (UIA) in improving the agility of information-driven business processes by bridging information silos to unite content and data in one index to power solutions and applications that offer more complete insight.
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.

Organizations that embrace and practice agility are proven to be more effective in dealing with change. Key to fostering agility is continuous learning and development. Learning is not an event-based occurrence where one-time training can satisfy skill gaps; learning opportunities need to be accessible, targeted, and continuous.
With a strong learning culture that aligns with business objectives, companies are better able to embrace an agile mindset, and with increased agility, performance will improve and the overall business impact will increase.
Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain.
Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

As enterprises work to balance IT innovation with efficiency—and increasingly adopt cloud-first strategies—agility is key. In this IDC InfoBrief, sponsored by Red Hat, learn 4 key capabilities supporting cloud adoption and agile integration approaches that offer faster, more flexible workflows.
Edison has followed the development and use of Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) over the past five years. Cisco ACI delivers an intent-based networking framework to enable agility in the datacenter. It captures higher-level business and user intent in the form of a policy and translates this intent into the network constructs necessary to dynamically provision the network, security, and infrastructure services.
As digital business evolves, however, we’re finding that the best form of security and enablement will likely remove any real responsibility from users. They will not be required to carry tokens, recall passwords or execute on any security routines. Leveraging machine learning, artificial intelligence, device identity and other technologies will make security stronger, yet far more transparent. From a security standpoint, this will lead to better outcomes for enterprises in terms of breach prevention and data protection. Just as important, however, it will enable authorized users in new ways. They will be able to access the networks, data and collaboration tools they need without friction, saving time and frustration. More time drives increased employee productivity and frictionless access to critical data leads to business agility. Leveraging cloud, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructures, enterprises will be able to transform key metrics such as productivity, profitabilit

Hyperconvergence is a hot topic right now. And for good reason. Organisations have longed for a way to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to deploy new business-facing IT services. Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) delivers the speed, simplicity and agility needed in today’s digital economy. But not all HCI solutions are created equal. And HCI is not the answer for every application or workload. In the following, we explore what makes HCI different from traditional IT infrastructure and how your business can benefit from the new capabilities it brings.
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
With a hybrid IT approach, small and midsized businesses can leverage the greater control, faster access, and increased security that comes with on-premise, while taking advantage of the increased agility, reduced costs, and better flexibility that the cloud offers.
In this report we’ll look at some of the challenges that smaller organizations face in building and managing IT, along with how some businesses are leveraging a hybrid cloud and on premise approach, gaining some significant benefits through this approach.
The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers. For midsize firms around the world, those with 100–999 employees, mobile resources play a key role in improving workplace productivity as well as allowing greater flexibility in how and where work is done.
New collaboration resources also allow staff in different locations to work together as efficiently and effectively as staff in the same office. The challenge for IT management is how best to coordinate the different collaborative and mobile resources and provide secure management of mobile devices and collaboration tools while enhancing workforce agility and productivity.
In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
In today’s dynamic business environment where applications and data are accessed outside of traditional corporate boundaries, IT must embrace the needs of both the business and an ever present mobile workforce. From business agility to employee efficiency, the never-ending quest for improved productivity is found in organisations across industries. And throughout it all, IT is charged with maintaining an organisation’s infrastructure, and security and access, while working to support initiatives that keep the business agile and growing, and employees productive.

can all be addressed by improved data protection solutions that are engineered as much for efficiency as they are for
reliability and capability.
