Management is demanding more efficiency and cost optimization from internal IT groups. Independent research data shows VMware’s HCI offering provides better economics than other solutions. Leveraging current IT skills, infrastructure and operational processes creates a foundation for both Capex and Opex savings that will continue for years to come, with increased operational simplicity that will allow IT to better respond to business demands.
Business expectations and demands on the data center are increasing and the impact on today’s data centers is staggering.
Organisations that can move quickly to leverage these new opportunities will find themselves in an advantageous position relative to their competitors. But time is NOT on your side! If your IT team often feel that they’re always in catch-up mode because it is difficult to quantify IT contributions, it is time to understand the benefit of hyperconverged infrastructure.

The first event in the Partnering with Certainy Webinar Series, "Customer Demands at the Edge."
Trends like IoT are driving customer experience expectations in a way that demands resiliency in local edge environments. As a result, we’re seeing a rise of edge computing (compute power coming out of the cloud and into the access layer). Customer demands manifest themselves differently based on things like company size and segment. For example, a retail customer’s business imperatives might look different from a doctor’s office. But one thing remains constant: A standardized, redundant, and repeatable physical infrastructure can protect the availability of these now-critical access-layer IT assets.
APC by Schneider Electric has:
The solutions you need to deliver a standardized, redundant, & repeatable infrastructure to your customers
The tools you need to configure them,
The alliances & certifications you trust & rely on,
The program to make it profitable.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting
individuals and businesses.
Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually. According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.
No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.

What could you do to meet these expectations and add value to the business if you could contain costs, increase operational efficiency, and do more with less?
You need to overcome several challenges. The cost of software licensing management is rising as a result of maintaining proprietary platforms or legacy technology, making it difficult to modernize your datacenter and migrate to more cost-effective solutions. You’re likely burdened by regulatory compliance mandates, which create enforcement, reporting, and auditing expenses.
And, like 67% of IT organizations, your budget is probably shrinking.

The impact of information is changing and while this change provides great opportunities, it also presents greater risks. Traditional monitoring processes and technology advancements alone no longer deliver effective identification, management, and prevention of business risks, instead the changing impact of information demands early detection and root cause analysis. Learn how leading companies are magnifying exploitation of information security risks, along with advancing identification and protection of compliance risks.
In response to accelerating business demands and the need for internal IT to remain competitive with external sources (i.e., public clouds), business and IT managers alike realize they need to transform their IT environments. IDC is seeing enterprise IT move away from unmanageable virtualized systems, siloed servers, storage, information, and processes to embrace more integrated
infrastructures that enable cloud-based technologies.
