Welcome to Secure Hybrid Cloud For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition. The hybrid cloud is becoming the way enterprises are transforming their organizations to meet changing customer requirements. Businesses are discovering that in order to support the needs of customers, there is an imperative to leverage the highly secure IBM Z platform to support missioncritical workloads, such as transaction management applications. The Z platform has been transformed over the years. The combination of z/OS, LinuxONE, open APIs, and the inclusion of Kubernetes has made IBM Z a critical partner in the hybrid cloud world. Businesses can transform their IBM Z environments into a secure, private cloud. In addition, through IBM’s public cloud, businesses may take advantage of IBM Z’s security services to protect their data and applications.
WAN edge infrastructure is changing rapidly as I&O leaders responsible for networking face dynamic business requirements, including new application architectures and on-premises and cloud-based deployment models. I&O leaders can use this research to identify vendors that best fit their requirements. By year-end 2023, more than 90% of WAN edge infrastructure refresh initiatives will be based on virtualized customer premises equipment (vCPE) platforms or software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) software/appliances versus traditional routers (up from less than 40% today).

The competitive advantages and value of BDA are now widely acknowledged and have led to the shifting of focus at many firms from “if and when” to “where and how.” With BDA applications requiring more from IT infrastructures and lines of business demanding higher-quality insights in less time, choosing the right infrastructure platform for Big Data applications represents a core component of maximizing value. This IDC study considered the experiences of firms using Cisco UCS as an infrastructure platform for their BDA applications. The study found that Cisco UCS contributed to the strong value the firms are achieving with their business operations through scalability, performance, time to market, and cost effectiveness. As a result, these firms directly attributed business benefits to the manner in which Cisco UCS is deployed in the infrastructure.
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and reset the requirements on vendors.
