We all know that employee engagement is important. Employees that are aligned with their goals, aware of their performance gaps, and motivated to improve, perform better. It’s stating the obvious. The big question is how to get there, and whether technology can help us do this at scale. This is where most digital motivation initiatives hit a wall. A new breed of next generation performance and feedback systems are attempting to do just that: creating and maintaining a continuous personalized conversation between employees and managers with regards to performance, development and goals.

Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment.
But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.

At an unprecedented pace, cloud computing has simultaneously transformed business and government, and created new security challenges. The development of the cloud service model delivers business-supporting technology more efficiently than ever before. The shift from server to service-based thinking is transforming the
way technology departments think about, design, and deliver computing technology and applications. Yet these advances have created new security vulnerabilities as well as amplify existing vulnerabilities, including security issues whose full impact are finally being understood. Among the most significant security risks associated with cloud computing is the tendency to bypass information technology (IT) departments and information officers.
Although shifting to cloud technologies exclusively may provide cost and efficiency gains, doing so requires that business-level security policies, processes, and best practices are taken into account. In the absence of these standard

Today’s changing healthcare landscape demands more from the finance department than ever before. No longer a sideshow in the healthcare delivery equation, finance now plays a starring role as hospitals and healthcare providers of all kinds face the
challenge of implementing the reforms of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010.
" One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs."

And it’s difficult to take proactive steps when your view of the total customer experience is a little blurry.
