To respond to rapid business environmental changes, enterprises are now adopting a more agile and services-oriented model for centralized IT, often characterized as “private cloud.” Public cloud service providers have become adept at adding new customers, new applications, and more compute-intensive workloads with minimal delay. While traditional enterprise IT may not be able to fully emulate this model, they can use virtualization – both at the levels of servers and storage – to come as close to the cloud as possible. Read this Evaluator Group paper to learn how HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage platforms can be foundational to developing IT agility.
As business purposes have changed over the years, IT approaches and infrastructures have had to change in lock-step to serve them optimally. IT professionals are now combining the best of the centralized approach – via virtualization, federation, and clouds of all sorts – with the best of the decentralized model – via mobile and localized consumption and production. In this paper, Enterprise Strategy Group examines approaches to IT operational challenges and business requirements. Learn how HP Converged Storage’s comprehensive approach represents a logical evolution development in storage, delivering ease, flexibility and cost-efficiency all in one.

Nobody can afford to lose data. But managing the backup
and recovery of data and services in far-flung locations can present many logistical and technology challenges that add complexity, expense, and risk. A new branch converged
infrastructure approach allows IT to project virtual servers
and data to the edge, providing for local access and performance while data is actually stored in centralized data centers. IT can now protect data centrally and restore branch operations in a matter of minutes versus days.

In the world of business (and innovation), “risk management” does not necessarily mean risk prevention. Often, there will be core areas where your company is willing to take risks in order to generate returns, such as entering a new market or developing a new product. Rather than avoid all risk, leaders of successful organizations assess the risks inherent in any situation and use them to drive company vision, strategies, plans, and processes. This ExecBlueprint describes an integrated approach for managing performance, risk, and compliance through centralized governance processes. It is called “GRC” (governance, risk management, and compliance), and it provides a framework for sharing policies, processes, and documents at the enterprise level to improve communication, create organizational efficiencies, and reduce unnecessary risk. How can GRC benefit an organization? When leaders are able to define their “risk appetite” and quantify all the risks facing them, they can make more appro

With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.
An effective corporate performance management (CPM) solution leverages a unified application for all key business processes, a centralized database ensuring the highest level of data accuracy and consistency, and provides critical decision-making information in real-time.
