Cloud-based solutions are revolutionizing the way that enterprises conduct business. These web-based versions of common business tools, like analytics or document management tools, retain most or all of the functionality of their desktop versions and provide significant access, customization, and utility to end users. More organizations are ditching on-premises solutions and adopting cloud-based tools, also known as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), "hosted," or "on-demand" solutions. The are becoming invaluable assets in today's agile and mobile workforce.
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center
hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in
costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases,
virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and
networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment.

Flexible deployment options, licensing models help take the challenges out of change. As you move toward the cloud, you're likely planning or managing a mixed environment of on- premises and on- cloud applications. To help you succeed in this transition, you need a trans-formative, mixed-workload database that can handle a massive volume of data while delivering high performance, data availability and the flexibility to adapt respond to business changes.
Digital transformation initiatives and the need for innovation are causing enterprises to rethink their IT landscapes including business-to-business (B2B) integration. Modern B2B integration is critical for enabling enterprises to achieve goals like increasing revenue, speeding up time to market, and improving efficiencies because these outcomes are dependent on having a successful business network. B2B practitioners have two goals — enable critical business initiatives and control costs — and cloud-based B2B services have been successful in helping enterprises achieve both goals.
IDC interviewed eight IBM clients to understand how their use of IBM Sterling B2B Integration Services, part of the IBM B2B Cloud Services portfolio, has impacted their operations and businesses.

There are significant differences between a cloud-native data protection solution and those that call themselves “clouds.” Understanding the value of each requires asking the right questions based on the needs of the organization. This executive brief provides critical insights into the pros and cons of each model.
There's a shift in the landscape of corporate performance management (CPM). The market is shifting to cloud-based vendors and moving companies like Host Analytics into the Leaders quadrants and shifting mega vendors out of it. We believe the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrants for Financial and Strategic CPM reports are guaranteed to shake up the market and shape the coming year. These reports provide valuable insights into the latest market trends, the current Leaders, and key vendor evaluation criteria.

Organizations are at a strategic crossroads. According to IDC analysts,1
two-thirds of CEOs will
center their corporate strategies around digital transformation initiatives. The goal of digital
transformation is only partly to make existing functions more effective. The greater goal is to be
able to do new things and use existing data in new, better ways.
Yet, 72% of current IT spending2—and the focus of IT resources—is on maintaining existing
systems. This creates tension between what needs to be done today and what should be done
for the future.
Middle-tier applications, according to IDC,3
are the core of a digital transformation strategy
because they provide data integration, messaging, and application programming interface (API)
management. Middle-tier applications also provide a platform for application development and
management that can handle traditional enterprise applications and cloud-native, distributed

Consider the volume of business content that your organization generates or receives every day: applications, forms, reports, office documents, audio, video, and even social media about your company. If it is poorly managed, not digitized, or disconnected from critical business processes, it creates chaos. This chaos impacts your ability to deliver exceptional customer service; it slows down important processes, increases security risk, and negatively impacts revenue. Conversely, controlling content chaos can significantly improve your analytics strategy by gaining insight and business value from dark or unstructured data sources. In this eBook, learn how cognitive and cloud-based Enterprise Content Management, or ECM, can help you protect your content while gaining a competitive advantage from it as you grow.
